Motorcycles combine the coolness of James Dean, the stylishness of leather clothing, and the convenience of jumping every gorge in the neighbourhood. Experience all aspects of two-wheeled entertainment with today's Groupon: for $2189, you get a Sachs MadAss 125 motorcycle plus shipping from Chironex Motorsports Inc. (a $3649 value). Title and licensing fees are not included.
A developer and distributor of powersport, utility, and recreational vehicles, Chironex brings the MadAss 125 ($3499) to Canadian riders through a joint venture with German brand Sachs Bikes International. The motorcycle's design pays homage to Sachs' more than 125-year heritage, sporting a naked look that does away with fairings and plastic parts in favor of durable, school-bus-jumping construction, weighing in at a stout 220 pounds. Specs start with 125cc four-stroke motor with electric start that can reach 90 km/h, coupled with a four-speed foot-shifting manual transmission. The frame holds a five-litre integral tank, enough fuel to set up to 100 kilometres worth of road ablaze before turning around and cooling it off with 16" wheels coated in traction-enhancing asphalt aloe.
Further details include clip-on handlebars, fast-response hydraulic braking, and a slim design that allows the MadAss to park on bicycle racks, all backed by a parts-only limited two-year warranty. Choose from four colours—charcoal, gunmetal, madder red, or magnolia white—when ordering, and learn about add-ons such as an enduro kit to quickly convert the MadAss into a trail-ready ride. Shipping ($150) is included. While pre-delivery inspection is not included in this deal, customers have the option of completing their own set up or Chironex will complete tasks such as bolt tightening, weather adjustments, and fluid top-offs for an added charge ($80–$100).
