Building the Mini-Rossi – Modding the Kyosho Mini Z Motorcycle

Well to say that I was excited to see that Kyosho was bringing out a Mini-Z Motorcycle would be a major understatement. Then you toss on the layer of details that Mini-Z is known for and that it was going to be a replica of the Yamaha M1 and I pretty much had to buy a bib cuz I was non-stop drooling at every pic I could find. Being the type that can’t stand running the same rig as everyone else has I had to put my spin on it. For me there is no better rider than Valentino Rossi when it comes to on-road motorcycle racing so I had to pay homage to him on this one. Like most involved in this Hobby I love all things with wheels and details and some of what I collect are scale motorcycles. Maisto is a huge supplier of said bikes that can usually be had for under 5 bucks at you’re favorite toy stop. Doing a quick search I found they made a copy of his 06 ride with Camel being the lead sponsor. Oddly enough I didn’t have these in my stable yet so I ordered up a couple. The details and fit and finish are really good on these scale beauties right out of the box so the only problem was could I make them fit onto the Mini-Z Moto that is already too small to possibly have as much going on as it does. Keep reading to get the details of the build...

Thanks to our reader Greg Zielinski (Chicago Mini R/C) for the tip! Great Article!!

Great Shot - Kyosho Turbo Scorpion

Kyosho Turbo Scorpion: HOLY ACTION! James Knight of Sherman Oaks, CA, was so excited about this shot that he totally forgot to tell us anything about his car.  Our guess would be that James likes to rip up and down the beaches of sunny California with his vintage Turbo Scorpion and from the looks of it, it’s pretty fast. Great photo, James!
