A “Game changer,” according to Cobra Moto President Sean Hilbert, the CX50FWE ups the ante across the board in amateur MX racing
HILLSDALE, Mich., (Jan. 15, 2016) – Racers dream of having Mod class bike power in the Limited class. And in the 50cc class that’s now become a reality as Cobra Moto today launched the new American-made CX50FWE – Factory Work Edition – competition minicycle.
“To say that the CX50FWE is going to solidify Cobra Moto’s position as the dominant player in the 50cc Senior class is an understatement,” said Cobra Moto President Sean Hilbert. “To put it bluntly; the CX50FWE is a game changer.”
Power is paramount with Cobra Moto’s new addition to the company’s near two-decade position atop the upper echelon of amateur minicycle motocross racing. With the all-new Venom Series power plant, the CX50FWE churns out awe-inspiring torque down low in the deep loam and big bike ruts, then parlays that torque into top end speed on holeshots and down straights not only now better than the legendary Cobra Moto King 50, but certainly better than any bike in its class.
Controlling all this newfound power is, again, Cobra Moto’s championship-proven chassis. With a further refined CARD cartridge fork, featuring MXT ‘Smart Leg’ technology, along with Cobra Moto’s industry standard CARD three-way adjustable rear shock, the CX50FWE’s masterfully engineered twin-spar frame holds the entire package together. This creates a perfect synergy between torsional and lateral stiffness while allowing ideal control for the class’ most powerful bike.
“More power. More Torque. Less weight. Smaller package. The CX50FWE is better from every angle,” added Hilbert.
Cobra Moto CX50FWE features-at-a-glance include:
· ‘No-compromise’ torque curve – Massive amounts of low-end torque for launching off the gate and out of corners, AND classic Cobra over-rev that provides that ‘2nd gear’ for wide open situations.
· New off-plane tuned expansion chamber. Features D-shaped header for minimal flow losses.
· Next generation 5Gx Freewheeling Clutch. Precision engagement, durable, freewheels for increased corner speed and easier starting.
· Cobra Friction Drive increases driveline durability and improves traction over rough terrain.
In addition, Cobra Moto’s MX industry partnership products that elevate the CX50 to Factory Works Edition status include Pro Taper’s innovative Cobra Moto bend Micro Bars (optimizing the bike’s feel and handling for small hands), a complete ‘factory fill’ of Bel-Ray products including everything from suspension fluids to air filter oil, and Dunlop’s high quality MX52 tires (only tires on the market that can properly handle the CX50FWE’s additional horsepower and torque). Other goodies that round out the tack-sharp Factory Works Edition look for the Cobra Moto CX50 include billet ignition and chain guide covers, a performance ribbed seat, black anodized hardware and full race graphics.
