    Is the UZZI about to get a revamp?

    I've noticed stock of UZZIs is getting low and the model is a few years old by Intense standards and lacks a few modern brand standards. I'm wondering if anyone has news on a revamp cause I'm considering buying one?

    It was revamped for 2008. That's WAY old for Intense. The SS had all the same features before it's most recent change. Stock is practically nonexistent at every retailer. Leads me to believe a redesign is coming.

    No man, the first Uzzi VP's didn't even reach dealers until last year. It has a 1.5" head tube, G3 dropouts, adjustable suspension, the newest edition of Virtual Pivot point suspension with maintainable pivots, and it has the ever popular hydro formed frame. I don't see this getiing another update for at least another two years.

    Stock is down because it is one of, if not the best free-ride bikes on the market right now. So with high demand coupled with the fact that Intense is also getting hit with tons of orders for the newest Tracer VP and the just released and soon to be a majorly popular bike, Tracer 29'er VP, im sure that being such a small company they are finding it hard to keep up with all of the initial orders of the three bikes plus the demand of the new orders to every retailer and dealer.

    Im not expert nor do I work for Intense, but that would be my best educated assumption.

    Knowing Intense, there are probably two new models to replace the Uzzi that will be launched 4 months apart starting in September.

    Maybe that's enough of revamp to call it a new model?

    No doubt! I thought the same about the 951 and now it's already being replaced by the M9 (less than a year?). The Uzzi is hardly all that for a FR bike - wheelbase is too long if you ask me. Even one of their employees told me he preferred the old SS to it when it comes to FR. So... yes, I would guess there could be some revamping done to it soon.

    The M9 isn't a replacement for the 951. They will keep both for a while at least. The M9 is the replacement for the M6. The 951 was supposed to be a replacement for the Socom but it morphed into a different bike during the development process.
