anyone remember the Sachs madass? I saw one today.

I know it's just a horizontal Honda clone with a weird frame but memories of us talking about them years ago started flooding back...talked to the guy for a few minutes about the bike.

REALLY surprised as to how big it was, it's taller than a grom. The guy loved the thing...I must admit it looked really neat in person.

No way we got more than a few thousand of these things imported. Talk about a unicorn over here west of Seattle.(edited)

Ive seen a few, but your right they are not super common. I dont hate them, but they are not my first pic of small bore bikes.

Re: anyone remember the Sachs madass? I saw one today.

Me neither, I prefer my Cub for a four stroke bike. But I have to admit that it's a cool reimagining of the horz' Honda platform. It looked comfortable too

I thought there were over $2K new, but thats based solely on my crappy memory. $1100 actually sounds cheap despite it being a chinese built Sachs.

The sachs madass is built so shit that i can frequently buy them for less than 200€. They are all falling apart these days.

remember?

Its like saying "anyone remember the Ford Escape?"

pretty sure they still make the madass

Re: anyone remember the Sachs madass? I saw one today.

madass50 died in 2011. There were 125's made til '13 or 2014. There was also a 500cc and an electric concept version but no longer. could maybe find something similar on alibaba tho.

I always kinda hated em. crappy clone of a great motor on a weird frame, but not interesting weird, more like trying too hard and the chocolate starfish weird. And madass is about the dumbest name maybe ever.

"Sachs" is now SFM bikes, they don't really have much in common with the old german pre-2000s sachs, theyre instead just cheap shitty china small bikes. They now brand them "SAXXX". They had some pretty fast 2 stroke scooters but transitioned to mostly electric. even have an electric grom clone:
