THE MADASS 125 by Sachs Bikes was released at the beginning of August in the U.S. and is being sold exclusively through Peirspeed dealers.

“The first shipment of 2010 Sachs MadAss 125s are now available on dealer showrooms,” said Peirspeed President Bill Peirce in a news release. “We’re excited that the demand for the MadAss 125 has remained high ever since dealers started taking pre-orders a year ago. And despite tough economic times, dealers are reporting brisk sales.”

The bikes features include:

  • A Sachs engineered frame design
  • Banana swingarm, rear mono shock and main frame that all run parallel to each other
  • Twin 55 watt headlights
  • Dual disc brakes
  • Low-profile tubeless tires on 16" alloy rims
  • 43 mm front forks

This parallel design of the banana swingarm, rear mono shock and main frame allows jolts from the rear wheel to be sent forward into the front suspension, the company says.

The entire machine weighs in at a lightweight 209 lbs., and current riders report up to 110 mpgs.

“While most riders buy a MadAss because of the design, it’s a nice bonus to get such great gas mileage,” Peirce said.

MSRP is $2,699. The MadAss 125 comes in black, graphite, yellow and silver.
