Hey guys, ive been searchin around and just cant seem to find any models of motorcycles, preferably yamaha R1, r6, or maybe a gsx-r or hayabusa, in 1/24 scale.. id love to build one in 1/12 scale but it needs to fit in with a diorama im designing for my 1/24 scale tuner cars.... please let me know if there is even such kits out there, thank you.

The only bike kits I know of in 1/24th are the Tamiya Yamaha T-Max (?) scooter, and the Heller/Airfix Moto-GP bikes. The race bikes are a few years old now, and I have no idea what models they were. I believe that AutoArt have 1/24th diecast, but I could be wrong on that.

IXO has a few 1/24 diecasts and other than Heller race bikes and Tamiya T-Max you're out of luck when it comes to 1/24 bike kits (OK, there was also an Abe Yamaha made by one of the Japanese manufacturers but I can't remember who it was).

airfix did 1/24 kits of some race bikes a few years back that were also boxed by heller.
very simple kits (approx. 40 parts) but very cheap.

Tamiya Yamaha T-Max kit can now be found in amazon.com. Try to check it out.

Hi ravan17,

there are many bikes in 1/24 available, also for example an Suzuki Hayabusa, Yamaha Vmax (the old one), Muench, several BMWs and so on.

To find them on E-Bay you should use the following key-words:

- Onyx 1/24
- Ixo 1/24
- Altaya 1/24

Here in Europe we have several dealers. Two following Links for you:

I think that helps.... :)

I bought the Heller kit of the Ducati quite a few years ago. I can see why the bikes are in the scale they are in. Small stuff!
I know they made about 4 different bikes.
