Spotted a brand called Fantic on one of the vids that I don't think I've heard of before. No idea if it's new for 2022 or if it's been around a while but the Caballero Rally looks quite cool. 449cc single, 160 dry weight

They have a couple nice tweaked versions of Yamaha bikes.

The Tuareg is a T7 beater provided Aprilia can fix up their poor dealer base etc.

What is the change….
Sadly Aprillia, Cagiva, Bimota, MV and some are not well presented and dealership and backup in SA always sucked.

Some really good looking bikes



I see there is a 9.5 and a 5.5 in that concept. 5.5 being a 550cc parallel twin which is an engine size/configuration lots of people have been hoping for

I don't know about that , side panel tanks like the KTM 950/990 and the subframe is a fuel tank just like the 690

I was trying to squint to see but its not a very clear pic.. I know some rally bikes are stuffing fuel tanks under seats and into the subframe but generally the top section of the tank is there for 10l or so.. dunno, would be nice to see the bike with the shroud off.

This is clearly the latest reiteration of the Honda Postie bike that is so popular in Australia.
I am sure it could be here too!

Whatever the weight, it should just have been a bit lighter though.  :lol8:

This got lots of appeal..but will be expensive.. a bigger motor in it will have you heaps of fun

"But there’s a catch: the CT125 costs eye-watering $6999 (plus on-road costs) or more than twice the price of Honda’s CB125E ($2600) commuter bike, which comes with a (conventional) five-speed gearbox. The CT125 joins the Monkey and the Super Cub as Honda’s third classic model to get a modern-day revamp."

Frantic have been around for years , trials bikes and small bikes

Frixed that for you  ;)
Fantic!
Old brand, used to make 50cc's mainly.

For main stream yes, 50cc Minarelli engines generally, but they also made serious Enduro bikes, when the 50cc 80cc and 125cc classes were big in the 1970's the Welsh National Enduro still often gets won outright by the 125cc bikes.  8) `

Why don't they reinvent the better ones?

Posties are outdated, even in modern form??

Like the XR600R and XR650R? They will still be relavant even today, but then I'm biased :peepwall:

They have not reinvented the CT, in some parts of the world they have never stopped production of the CT110. And who can resist taking the monies of the man-bun, coffee-drinking yuppies? It's so easy to do, just ask almost any other manufacturer out there, they are all taking advantage of the retro fad. So increase the cc to 125, slap on off-the-shelf FI, add some LED lights, and stick a staggering price tag on it.

There is nothing to change really, why would you put a bigger motor in it? To what end?
