The Bikes And Kit
The Bikes, brand new trail bike's from Fantic, an Italian manufacturer reborn — not for the first time here we have a 250cc four-stroke. a full-size enduro.
WHAT'S THE TECH? The engine, it's a 250cc water-cooled SOHC four-valve four-stroke single. pumping out 28hp. There's a six-speed gearbox to go-with It's fuel-injected engine. The frame is new, being made of chrome-molybdenum steel and of a perimeter design with aluminium swingarm and subframe. Styling and detail is decidedly enduro — neat and slim — and the finished article is entirely contemporary, right down to its black-anodized rims. The suspension is Fantic branded (made in-house?) and of a trail rather than enduro spec — those forks are 41mm USD units, It's 100% road legal and fully Euro emissions compliant and yet weighs in at a super-lightweight of just 104kg. The Fantic Casa 250e is in our opinion the perfect trail bike for both beginners and experienced riders alike, an all-round great off-road motorcycle for touring the mountain trails of Andalucia.
