First 2011 Fischer MRX Sportsbike Delivered to US Soldier

The first unit of the 2011-model Fischer MRX American-made sport motorcycle has been delivered, with US Army PFC Jacob “Jake” Peterson, who was at home on leave from serving in Afghanistan, as the lucky owner.

The machine was shipped directly to Jake while at home in Texas during his first trip home in over a year. Jake was only home for a week, but he reportedly clocked over 1200 miles (1931km) on his new MRX.

“I’ve been dreaming of getting my MRX since I first saw a picture of it up on the wall, and I knew I had to have one,”
Jake said. He is in the 173rd Airborne Infantry, 1-91 Air Cav, serving in the PSD- or Personal Security Detail- Platoon.

The metallic black MRX SP motorcycle comes complete with beautiful aluminum gold wheels, Brembo brakes and Ohlins shock absorber weighs only 355 lbs (161 kg) and handles with razor sharp precision thanks to the lightweight and ultra-rigid Trellispar frame, which is the world’s only one-piece motorcycle frame.

“It looks amazing, and handles even better. People ask me about it wherever I go,”
continues Jake, who plans to ship his MRX to his next assignment in Germany.

“We’ve had several customers who wanted to treat themselves to a new MRXafter serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. It makes all of us here at the factory very proud that we can build them something that they are looking forward to- something that helps keep them going. We hope they know how much we appreciate their service,”
stated proudly Company president Dan Fischer.

The Fischer MRX currently retails in the United States, Indonesia, Canada, Brasil and Australia, and is expected to hit Russian and European markets in 2011.
