Venom GPV-1 RC blurs line between real and replica

Venom_GPV1_RC_motorcycle.jpgDesigned to offer a radio controlled motorcycle for both racers and hobbyists, the Venom GPV-1 features near-fully adjustable suspension, a functional steering damper, an inherently self-righting design and sounds higher-spec than most real bikes. It works like one too; leaning on rubber tires while relying on a strong chassis and chain drive.

At $230, Venom claims the GPV-1 undercuts similarly specified race
models while being easy enough to use that amateurs can enjoy it as a
toy.

telescopic forks out front and a monoshock in the rear. The former are
adjusted by swapping out the pistons and oil, while the latter features
a preload collar.
