Maico to reveal roadbike in 2011

Aluminium-framed street machine will have a "staggering" power-to-weight ratio, say manufacturers

ICONIC OFF-ROAD motorcycle manufacturer Maico is to launch a handmade road-going streetfighter, scheduled to be unveiled next year. 

The British-based company has revealed it will build an aluminium-framed machine to sell alongside Maico's existing line-up of offroad machines.

Keeping tight lipped about the potential of the new machine a spokesman for Maico International said:

“The only information we are prepared to release at the moment is that the bike will feature a stunning new British hand made ally frame, swingarm and subframe and the initial indications are that the power to weight ratio is, quite frankly, staggering.”

Should be interesting.
