1/9 - 1/12 scale Motocross/Enduro kit wanted
Posted by Pictureman on Sunday, July 1, 2012 8:08 PM

I'm trying to find a kit for an enduro-style bike in 1/9 or 1/12 scale.  There are a couple of kits similar to what I need, but none have the knobby tires.

Know of such a critter? Or, does anyone make aftermarket knobby or "trials" tread tires in this scale?

I'm in the process of likely biting off more than I can chew, but I'll upload a few pictures in a couple of months if this works. Thanks for your help!

Tamiya are just about to re-introduce their 1/6th scale Yamaha Moto X YZ250 model of the '70's. 

The BIG drawback is that they want over £80 for the kit!

Whoa! That's over US$126. Looks like a beautiful kit, though. Not exactly what I wanted, but it's the closest I've seen so far. Thanks for the info!

There is this one that comes on ebay every now and then for a good price.

Has good knobby tires for this scale.

Thank You ; Krow113

Thanx, Krow113!  I'm really looking for something in the 650 range (remember the BSA 441?)  that has, perhaps, been outfitted for travelling on the backroads, mainly (as PatrickW might say) with knobby tyres and a small windscreen.

I saw a great photograph recently of such a motorcycle with bags, backpacks, tank bag, etc., cruising a gravel road in Nova Scotia during a spring rain...mud puddles, dirty bike...just begging to be diorama-ized. I just need an appropriate bike and matching knobbies. I want to display this at the Chattanooga Model Show in January, so I see more than a little scratchbuilding in my future.

Your help is greatly appreciated, folks! I'll post a few photos once I get started.

Tamiya made a Honda NXR750 in 1/12 with knobbies and a KTM 250 MX.
