Onyx RCR Motorbike

If you’ve wondered how this Onyx motorbike would stack against a 125cc traditional motorcycle, don’t worry, so did the engineers at Onyx. In fact, the Onyx RCR Motorbike is fast, 2 stroke power-band fast. If you’ve ever ridden a 125cc 2-stroke dirt bike you’d know what that means. You can experience the power-band torque of kitted two stroke motors throughout the entire RPM range and go 0-30 MPG in 4 seconds or take it off road and unleash the full potential.
