Fischer Motor Company is the only US-based sport motorcycle manufacturer currently in production. Their MRX 650 is a sport bike built around Suzuki derivative Hyosung 90-degree V-twin motor and a one-piece, twin spar, aluminum perimeter frame. Alan Cathcart of Motorcyclist magazine in his 2006 test review, called the MRX, “the most important new American motorcycle in generations.”

Company founder Daniel Fischer developed the company’s first motorcycle for mass-production, the MRX 650 using suppliers including an EADS (Airbus) subsidiary for engineering, Harley Davidson and Michael Jordan Motorsports contractor Gemini Technology Systems for chassis platform development, and various companies related to US tractor and automotive suppliers for other components.

Styling for the new motorcycle was done by British designer Glynn Kerr. In earlier stages, there were plans to produce 1,000–1,500 cc (61–92 cu in) Rotax-based 90° V-twins.
