Atomik RC Brian Deegan Metal Mulisha MM450 Dirtbike

As we first told you back in May that Atomik RC has partnered up with with Brian Deegan and the Metal Mulisha. This dirtbike is the first release under this new partnership and all the features and specs are now available in the press release below:

As the flagship of the recently announced partnership between Atomik, Brian Deegan and the Metal Mulisha, Atomik RC launches the MM450 RC dirtbike. This fully ready-to-run ¼ Scale RTR dirtbike features the gravity defying Electronic Gyro Stabilization System. This revolutionary design houses a brushless motor within the rear wheel, spinning a weighted flywheel at over 12,000 RPM and producing over 9lbs of stability. The results are un-paralleled stability and ease of driving for experienced and novice drivers alike.

Since power is everything in motocross, the MM450 comes standard with a V550 4200Kv brushless power system for effortless wheelies and extra punch to easily clear the triples. All this power is handled by an 80amp Waterproof motor ESC and a 30amp Waterproof Gyro ESC. The bike comes “Powered by Venom” with an included 20C 2S 3200mAh 7.4V LiPO battery and 2-3 Cell LiPO Balance Charger.

Power is nothing without control, so the design team took things a step further and developed the only full functioning offroad motorcycle tires in the industry. The front and rear wheels and tires feature Atomik’s proprietary concept Beadlox and Griplox wheel and tire system. The scale looking MXR-1 race tires are captured in a bead-locking wheel, while the tire volume is filled with a form filling molded insert for terrain gripping performance.

Unlike any other radio control bike, the MM450 can be tuned and customized like a full size bike, with adjustable oil filled shocks, a patent-pending mechanical traction control system and a wide variety of hop-up parts, including anodized aluminum parts, super moto tire sets and even a fully-functional front disc-brake kit.

Not to be outdone by the pure engineering genius of the bike, the body work had to be top-notch as well, so we meticulously modeled it after the real team issued Metal Mulisha rides, right down to the sponsor markings.
