This is a brand new motorcycle. It builds upon the knowledge gained with my previous bikes, but where those were a proof of concept, this is the final product.
This 1/8 size Racing Motorcycle is far more advanced and has been completely redesigned with knowledge gained from actual RC motorcycle designers and racing enthusiasts whose invaluable input was incorporated into the design. This is not meant to be a good 3d printed RC motorcycle, but a serious new RC Motorcycle variant that people can build, design and race at the track.
NOT JUST BIGGER, BUT BETTER—COMPLETELY REENGINEERED AND REDESINGED!!
Every part of the bike has been redesigned, and re-imagined to make this bike stronger, more robust, more realistic, to make this RC motorcycle drive, lean, and use rubber tires.
Building this bike to an industry standard size allows the use of off the shelf parts, dampers, shocks, wheels, and tires.
Different color combinations that mimic the rear Suzuki race bike livrey.
CHOOSE YOUR RIDER
You have two choices of number plates #25 (Maverick Viñales) and #41 (Alex Villà), so you get to decide who you want to represent!
The body was redesigned to make the bottom of the bike narrower to allow maximum lean.
DESIGNED TO BALANCE
All of the weight is tucked in towards the center of the bike to allow it to easily balance.
BOLTS NOT GLUE
Unlike my other 3d vehicles, this bike relies on bolts rather than glue. This makes the bike easier to build and maintain, and it aids in the bikes strength.
BUILT IN THREADS
Fusion360 gave me the ability to add threads to the design so the holes print with holes already tapped. (cleaning up the treads with a tap is still recommended)
This bike was built with crashing in mind. Parts are bigger and the body parts are one piece so it can withstand crashing and rolling over.
This new bikes has a chassis that the body parts bolt onto just like a real bike. The bike can be broken down to the chassis in less than 5 minutes by only removing 9 bolts. This allows easy maintenance, tuning, and testing.
55MM REAR ADUSTABLE SHOCK
Bigger rear shock for better dampening.
You can adjust the ride height, steering angle, rear shock ride height, rear shock mounting position, front fork angle, and even the camber of the rear wheel.
METAL RACING FRONT DAMPNER
Racing front dampers are used in the front forks because this bike was meant to use serious racing parts.
WIDE SELECTION OF RUBBER TIRES AND WHEELS
The last bikes suffered in the lack of available rubber motorcycle tires, not this bike… any 1/8 tire or rim will fit and can be used. From 3d printed rims with Kyosho rubber Tires, to GPV-1 tires, to even GRP’s carbon rims and super sticky tires. The bike can be configured in with a regular rear rim or even use a mechanical gyro in the rear if you are new to driving an RC motorcycle.
