I wonder why Tiger motors isnot including the Rocketboy in any ads or publishing! For us who's lucky enough to own one,it's really annoying because they seem to forget that here's a model to really admire.
the rocketboy is not available in thailand and therefor not listed on websites here such as tigermotor.co.th or tigersachsclub )....but it is a sexy looking bike...would be even better if they could "blow it up" to some 500 cc and larger dimensions...
Stallion motorcycles sells a nice looking line of Stallion Mini Series, with prices from 33,500 bht up to 42,500 bht. The little 125cc Stallion Mini is a good alternative for the Tiger Rocketboy.
I think the stallion mini is looking very different than the Tiger Rocketboy...like worlds between, in looks.
what i do like are the stallion monkeybikes...they looked kind of funky on the Motorshow.
Stallion is assembling their bikes in Thailand ( and is to my information a Thai Company now)with Parts coming from various sources of different suppliers, maybe they also make some of the things here too...but i don't have really more info than that

I'm following the availability of pocket bikes closely, I can remember my 110cc pocket bike which I modified with a turbo. It did wonders for the power, but the 110cc engine was basically to small for the turbo I used. So I was hoping that a 125cc or 135cc would give just that little extra I need to get my pocket turbo bike project going again.

The turbo is a IHI RHB31 turbocharger, you can get them now-a-day from eBay for around 210 to 240 USD. The turbo is not a plug-n-play solution and needs a lot of modified parts which I CNC machined myself...
I sold the turbo pocket rocket about 4 years ago, and I believe the guy who bought it blowup the engine... sadly
