Mercedes-AMG has entered into a long-term, strategic partnership with Rotwild Bikes and their first creation is the R.X45 AMG All Mountain Bike.

The two brands have plans to bring multiple limited-edition bikes to market and the R.X45 is the first of those sporting a color scheme heavily influenced by the A 45 AMG Edition 1. The frame is finished in AMG cirrus white, the rear swing arm is in matte black and graphite grey, while red detailing offers subtle accents just like it does on the A 45 AMG Edition 1. The full suspension, carbon fiber bike will be available exclusively from Rotwild dealers and is priced around $9,225 (6,990 Euros).

The mountain bike is handmade and developed in Germany and features the very latest in frame technology. The R.X45 is rugged, lightweight, and designed to withstand extreme conditions.

“Our aim with this partnership is to bring the AMG brand claim, ‘Driving Performance’, to two wheels,” said Ola Källenius, Chairman of the Board of Management at Mercedes-Benz. “We chose ROTWILD because the brand has applied a real passion and high level of technical expertise to take bike development to a new level.”
