Downhill Game-Changer

Auckland-based Mike Hodgkinson’s 57kg off-road Mountain Moto is a “game changer” according to motorcycle blog 2Wheel Tuesday, and “takes the best of downhill mountain bikes, paired with a 125cc engine making for an unbelievable unique combination.” “Understandably, it has garnered rave reviews from bike magazines all over the world. According to Cycle World USA, the Mountain Moto is ‘perfect for cutting through uncharted territory, light enough to lift over fences, fast enough to keep you smiling and just big enough for real trail rides.’ Hodgkinson, the owner of FX Bikes, is currently in talks with Porche to design, manufacture, and deliver the engines. He is also working with the former chief of design from Honda to assist with the development and design of this new class of motorcycle. We expect big things to come out of this company which is looking to relocate to Italy to get closer to European motorcycle manufacturers.”
