The traditional festival in Paris is a platform for brands that are eager to show off their innovative works. One of those who wanted was the obscure French company Mash Motors, which presented an interesting model.
Until now, Mash Motors has made neoclassical retro bikes in cubic capacity up to 400 cm3.
Mash Dirt Track 650 2019 opens the doors to a new world to surprise users with its capabilities. For the first time, a team of engineers of the company uses an innovative 644 cc single-cylinder engine, and it seems that it will become a fundamental element for the rest of the classic models.
Yes, the heart of a motorcycle was replaced with a more functional one, but literally it is not a novelty. The engine used is a Honda NX650 Dominator engine. And he for a moment, in 2018, turned 30 years old. In any case, the company gave preference to always current reliability, even if not as young as the “china” of the new generation.
Mash Motors somewhat transformed the engine, adapting it to the 21st century. Including equipped with electronic injection Delphi and changed the six-speed transmission.
The characteristics are not impressive, the power has gone down to 40 hp, and yet this is normal for an affordable flat tracker. To whom, in Europe, for all motorcycles with a power exceeding 35 kW, you need a certain driving experience.
Mash Dirt Track 650 2019 will go on sale at the end of 2018. Price in Europe will be about 6000 €, which is quite justified.
The motorcycle is designed on the basis of the Japanese engine, radial brake caliper, a fork of the overturned type. Also contains shock absorbers with expansion tanks and wheel-mounted rims of functional size (120 / 80-18 and rear 130 / 80-18). Weight is 163 kg.
Special attention should be paid to design, which probably plays a much larger role in this situation than technical updates.
