The Sachs Madass 125 has landed!

Motorcycle, Noped, Product Plugs

Just got word that the long overdue Sachs Madass 125s are now on showroom floors! You might recall, back-in-the-days, that we reviewed the Madass 50, distributed by Tomberlin. With so much potential and so little performance our next question was “how can get one with a larger engine?”
Well, prior to today, the answer was always “cram a bigger GY6 in there”. Now the answer is, go to your local Cobra Powersports dealer and lay down your $2699 (MSRP… about $101 more than the Symba 101cc) . I’d like to feel what sort of difference there is between the 125cc and the old 50cc version. While I locate my local dealer why don’t you browse over this press release:
August 10, 2009 – Kennesaw, GA – While it’s true that every Sachs motorcycle and scooter is innovative by definition, it’s also true that in the history of Sachs Bikes this may be the most unique design ever released by the historic German company. The Sachs MadAss 125 is an urban light-weight motorcycle designed to rock the perception of what a motorcycle should look like and ride like.

The MadAss has an exclusive Sachs engineered frame design that is the whole key to how the bike handles so well. The banana swing arm, the rear mono shock, and main frame all run parallel to each other. This allows jolts from the rear wheel to be sent forward into the front suspension, and not up into the rider. Fuel is carried in the frame, and together you get an incredibly light and nimble machine weighing just 209 lbs. Other design features include twin 55 watt headlights, dual disc brakes, low profile tubeless tires on 16″ alloy rims, and 43 mm front forks.

The MadAss is being sold in the U.S. exclusively by Peirspeed Powersports Dealers. Bill Peirce, President of Peirspeed said, “The first shipment of 2010 Sachs MadAss 125’s are now available on dealer showrooms. 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 2010 Sachs MadAss 125 has been available in a small number of Peirspeed dealerships starting the first of August 2009. More Peirspeed dealers are expected to receive their first shipments within 60 days.

“The MadAss is something that appeals to a group of riders that want to stand out in a crowd and draw attention everywhere they go,” added Mr. Peirce. “Consumers are looking for fuel efficient alternative transportation like scooters and small displacement motorcycles. This SACHS product gives the customer a choice beyond the traditional.”

“MadAss 125 riders are reporting 85 to 110 MPG’s,” adds Peirce. ‘And while most riders buy a MadAss because of the design, it’s a nice bonus to get such great gas mileage.”

Peirspeed dealer Bill Weslow, owner of Moto-Scoot in Milwaukee says, “The MadAss is a bike that sets itself, and the rider apart from the crowd.” Mr. Weslow adds, “People stop and ask MadAss owners about their bike every time they ride it. This gives MadAss owners a real pride of ownership, and the satisfaction of knowing they made the right choice.”

    I haven't gone looking, to be honest. To me, this is the opposite of a scooter, in that it's useless for carrying anything other than the rider and a backpack. Truly a "motorized bicycle," despite Tennessee's definition. ;)


  2. ScooterScoop Says:

    :D -Ahaha, yeah… Well, I suppose if you REALLY had to carry some stuff you could always DIY:

    I saw a few other custom bits here:

    I love the looks of this bike and would love to get one. The only problem is the name. I don't want to have to explain the term "Madass" to my 5 year old.


  4. RickRussellTX Says:

    That's pretty solid horsepower for a 200 pound vehicle.


  5. Anonymous Says:

    Where are they made???


  6. tarmac Says:

    Wow, it's taken you guys a fair while to get hold of a 125cc MadAss, hasn't it! They were available in Europe only very shortly after the 50cc version was released.


  7. Jeffraham Prestonian Says:

    China, doods. China!

    (my verification word is "kills," therefore I rawk)

    What the Heck? Our local scoot shop has had them (In Stock) for at least 6 months!
    I'd hate to think that Arizona is on the leading edge of scooter introduction!

    That's it. I'm selling my Ducati!

    I have seen this sach madass 125 and for me it is like a motorized bicycle as they said. The engine is outside and can be seen, but it is safe?

    The Madass from Cobra Sales is simply to hard to get and a sales failure by Cobra Sales They have limited number of them and sold out right away, great product so I will just wait till someone copies it and sell those, Cobra Sales like most chinese scooter distributors are clueless about their products and everything else that runs the scooter craze.
