If you have seen movies and the actors performing stunts on it, you would have probably noticed a certain type of bike with extra large mud guard.

The bike sports a chassis of hollow oval tubing which forms the frame of the vehicle. The bike which is intricately carved for being highly competitive features a steering head inclined at an angle of 25.6° with respect to horizontal. This lets the rider have a good grip on balance. The streamlined body makes it easier to move with high speed. The basic features like suspensions and the related shock absorbing system of CR65 is something special. The rear end is suspended by Sachs rear shock and is really helpful in ducking uneven road surfaces.

We believe that the engine of CR65 is made for global presence and not just for Husqvarna championship. The bike boasts a 6 cylinder with air intake through a 24 mm carburetor called Mikuni. The engine is water cooled. The cooling action is done with the help of two radiators provided for the purpose. Moreover, the 6 speed gear box provides with you with high speed. The bike has 14/12" wheels and disc brakes with 4 and 2 piston calipers at the front and rear end respectively.  The front and rear discs are of 200 mm and 165 mm. The bike is light with a total weight of just 55 kg without fuel! The bike features a hydraulic clutch.
