Fantic jumps into the two stroke market with a hybrid Yamaha/Fantic 125. Frame and suspension are Yamaha, the base engine is also Yamaha but significantly modified. Plastic is Fantic's own design. Hope you like red, white and black. wink

Hopefully the body work will bolt up to the Yamaha and make it look more modern

I raced a Fantic over 45 years ago. 😀 Photo

why?

Looks more like a Chinese copy bike than an exotic 125

My thoughts. Yamaha hit pay dirt with that platform. Fantic should have went with a different color though. Honda, GasGas, Beta are all red. But doesn't look like it will be available here anyways...

be interesting how much $$, could be a cheaper yz125 throwing sum yz plastics on it

Keen to know whats going on internally in the engine. The yz can be made well when developed.

It should be identical internally as the yz, it has to be as reliable as a yamaha!
But the good news is that they'll produce a special kit developped by Jan Witteveen who have been working with Aprilia etc.

Fantics have always been red though as well. They made some fantastic motocross and enduro bikes back in the late 70's early 80's.

That front number board looks a bit odd...like its off a 65 or something.

This bike has been around for a while....some of the euro guys were racing it last season !!!

Yes but now it's the production models...

Updated ergos, styling, and motor on a YZ125, while keeping the chassis/suspension? Not much to dislike about that.

C'mon Yamaha, It could be the 2022 YZ 125. It's all ready and waiting, cut Fantic the check.

You can't tell me the cost is lower than if you just bought a blue one and sent off the cylinder and bought some fancy stickers/plastics..?

So what ever happened to that OSSA 2T concept that was floating around not so long ago? The time is right for boutique brands!
