There was a thread on here yesterday that had all of the info on the GPV-1.

Venom GPV-1 1:8 motorcycle

Here is a Video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h3dwn...&cc=MODEL_MOTO

We are very pleased to announce the launch of our new 1/8th scale motorcycle...the GPV1. After an intensive design program, testing, traveling its finally here. This bike has it all and its for everyone of any skill level. That was the hard part! Its not just for the racer and its not just for the novice. The RTR version starts you off with an ease of use commonly found in more toy grade hobby products but dont let that simplicity fool you. The chassis has an incredible range of adjustment for an RTR. Add to that an optional Race Chassis that expands the GPV1's capabilities even further and you have the ability to tune for any condition. Here is a list of standard features.

Fiberglass/Carbon Hybrid chassis plates (50%FG/50%CF)
3 position adjustable Rake Angle
3 position adjustable Rear Shock Angle
8 Machined Teflon Pistons for the Front Forks, 2 per fork, extras to tune with
4 Machined Teflon Pistons for the Rear Shock
3 Machined Teflon Bushings per fork, plus two pistons = total 5 bushings each
Dual O-rings per fork and for the Rear Shock
Venom Racing V5 compound Natural Rubber Racing Tires
Molded Foam Rear Insert
Molded Rubber Front Insert
Indexable Cam Chain Tensioner
Dual Steering Dampeners
Quick Change Spur Gear Hub
Composite Fork Tubes and Shock Body
One piece molded Truss Style Rear Swing Arm
Quick Change Axles with captured lock nuts
Prepainted Polycarbonate Bodywork
Prepainted Neocel Foam Scale Rider Figure
Molded Scale features like rotors, exhaust pipe, handle bars and calipers plus scale front and rear track stands
3 Channel FM radio with 3rd Channel Mixing for Digital Brake Bias Adjustment
6cell 1200mah NiMH battery pack
Fireball 370 brushed motor
Brushed ESC with push button set up and two profiles

OPTION PARTS
Alloy Fork Set with Preload Piston
Alloy Tripple Clamps
Alloy Rear Shock
Alloy Chassis Blocks
Alloy Steering Stem Set
Steering Bearing Set
Race Chassis Set (3position Rake Angle/5 position Wheelbase/20deg shock angle adjustment range)
Brake Kit - takes advantage of the 3rd channel mixing in the standard radio
Wheel sets - 5/6/7 spoke front rear wheels in pairs, Y-spoke standard
Race Tires V1 - softest compound, V3 - Med Comp
Brushless Motor
Brushless ESC
Lipo Packs
Pinion Gears

How big is a 1/8 motorcycle compared to a 1/10 ST or 1/18 ST. Would it be possible to jump it around 1 foot high.

I dont think you would want to jump this, its a street bike. If your looking for a bike to jump look for the Ricky Carmichael dirtbike made by Radio Shack. Its discontinued, but I see them on here in the classifieds, and on ebay. They are 1/5th scale and have decent suspension. Also there are a TON of threads on how to upgrade them, and even make them Nitro!

It was locked because the policy here is not to allow more than one new product release per month so the admin deleted the thread. Sorry for the confusion, all is well.

Yep it was yours-I traded my buddy a micro rs4 for it. Now he went and bought two more after seeing mine run. We all are just waiting for the bad ***** GPV-1 just like the rest of the world.
I wonder how many videos will be up of customers bikes in Aug.

That new BL ESC is for 10th scale applications and not for the GPV-1...I wish! The power is incredible. Use that on a 5th scale bike as well.
The charger for the GPV-1 running pack is included...YES

What size motor is in that?, I can't seem to tell. I have been out of the Rc world for a bit and have been into my racing season way to much, Would i be able to use a Mini-t Brushless system in it. Im pretty sure that the motors are the same size but not completely sure. Thanks for the help in advance.
