It was on Motorcyclenews.com a week ago. Pretty neat little bike. Would like to see it in person to get a feel at how small it is. FIRST POST!

Default That is phat.....

As a former BMXer, let me say that this is a great idea. I would love to get it on a track.

Looks like fun, indeed. However, I'd prefer a little more in the way of the rear fender, to keep me arse out of the tire! There's a reason trials bikes have a long fender.

With these last couple emails I have gotten regarding this site going 'subscription', and endless scoops by other sites, as well as tests that are incomplete ( why follow the Cruiser Bruiser shootout a few days later with the Warrior...WAIT AND INCLUDE IT!), you guys are gonna have to get on the stick for me to buck up any more cash. I hope you improve enough, cause you all seem like decent guys doing a good job, but I think you may be outgunned by other publications...



This Tricker bike will sell if Yamaha prices it right...

Kinda cool. Better than another scooter, at least. And it's not really a surprise, given that some competition mountain bikes over the past few years have started to look a lot like OT bikes without motors. Guess this just fills in the gap somewhere.

Default Seems Cool

I think that this concept could be Very cool. From what I understand, it was designed to compete in the X-Games. I could see kids (ages 12-90) who live in the city, and don't have the oppertunity to even try Motocross setting up plywood ramps and milk crates to have fun on something like this. I have two acres personally, and would consider the Tricker to just have fun on around my yard. What could be wrong with a motorized BMX and an aluminum perimeter frame!

Interesting to see that Netscape.de has a motorcycle news section. Too bad we don't have one in English.

Does this thing have an automatic transmission or something? I don't see a shift lever.



Apart from that, it looks like just the thing to ride through the rubble of a post-nuclear metropolis while escaping the six foot rats and cannibal mutant zombies with infrared eyes.

I was wondering when a motorcycle manufacturer was going to make a purpose-built bike for competitions like the X-Games.





That little bike looks too cool.

It must have an auto transmission, or at least a centrifugal clutch. The left hand lever is the front brake, and the right hand lever is the rear brake, by the looks of it.



Overall, it looks very cool!
