Cannondale, renowned for its sleek mountain bikes, has developed the MX400 off-road motorcycle in-house. It boasts innovations such as electronic fuel injection and linkless rear suspension, rarely found on motocross bikes. Project manager Michael Guerra says there are two reasons for Cannondale taking on established Japanese manufacturers. ‘There is a definite crossover between downhill mountain biking and off-road motorcycling. The technologies are very similar. We manufacture our own disc brakes and suspension, and we’ve been making lightweight aluminium chassis since 1983.’ In addition, downhill mountain bikers ride motocross bikes to build bike-handling skills. They will soon be riding the MX400 – but this innovative design will be tested to the limit in the summer, when Cannondale plans to race it.
