Sachs MadAss 125.
Urban 125 in Limited Numbers
While it's interesting that every Sachsmotorcycle and scooter is "innovative by definition", it's also interesting thatin the history of Sachs Bikes this may be the most unique design ever releasedby the historic German company. The Sachs MadAss 125 is an urban light-weightmotorcycle designed to rock the perception of what a motorcycle should look likeand ride like.
The MadAss has an exclusive Sachs engineeredframe design that is the whole key to how the bike handles so well. The bananaswing arm, the rear mono shock, and main frame all run parallel to each other.This allows jolts from the rear wheel to be sent forward into the frontsuspension, and not up into the rider. Fuel is carried in the frame, andtogether you get an incredibly light and nimble machine weighing just 209 lbs.Other design features include twin 55 watt headlights, dual disc brakes, lowprofile tubeless tires on 16" alloy rims, and 43 mm front forks.
The MadAss is being sold in the U.S. exclusivelyby Peirspeed Powersports Dealers.

"Consumers are looking for fuel efficient alternativetransportation like scooters and small displacement motorcycles. This SACHSproduct gives the customer a choice beyond the traditional."
"MadAss 125 riders are reporting 85 to 110 MPG's,"adds Peirce. 'And while most riders buy a MadAss because of the design, it's anice bonus to get such great gas mileage."
