Have you heard of Caballero Motorcycles?
From a company called Fantic.
We stumbled on this retro looking motorcycle recently in Japan and was surprised that we have never heard of it in Malaysia. So, we did some research and it seems that the brand ‘Caballero’ made its revival showing at the 2015 at the Eicma Trade Show in Milan.
Days after the show, the name Caballero Motorcycles was singing high among the European motorcycle dealers who wanted the dealership. Its world premiere at Milan 5 years ago, was definitely one of the top celebrities of the Show, bringing tens of thousands of visitors at the Fantic stand and arousing enormous interest from the international media to the new Fantic owned bikes. Fantic is the name of the Italian company that manufactures Caballero motorcycles.
This Italian company began in 1968, manufacturing and exporting enduro motorcycles, mini-bikes and go-karts. Today they continue in the same genre, though the names have changed to dual-sport and motard (supermoto).
PRESS RELEASE: Fantic CEO, Mariano Roman on the success of Caballero: “We knew before the Trade Show that we have developed a very good bike, but the great success that happened during the fair and all the fantastic appreciation received from insiders, journalists and fans for our brand really surprised us and give us a lot of energy every day. We will do our best to realize a great project, which you know, for us is not only a motorcycle, but it represents all our passion. It’s going to be incredible. “
Aggressive and elegant, compact and high performance on road and off-road: the new Caballero range of motorcycles, just like its historical predecessor, distinguishes itself through its unique style.
After the 2015 fair, in all the articles and mentions by the most important motorcycle magazines and specialized webzine positioned the Caballero range high on their ‘want to ride’ list. The great interest around the product is also proven by the fact that it was the “Most clicked” bike from the show, as stated by the same magazines.
The Caballero range has three different engine sizes; 125, 250 and 500cc.
Instead two different versions will be launched: a ‘Scrambler’ version suitable for use ‘on’ and ‘off-road’ and a ‘Flat-Track’ version. The return of the Caballero in the market will take place during the summer.
In March 2017 however, it will be launched the new web site dedicated to the Caballero World – www.caballerofantic.com – that will showcase the model range and that will allow visitors to join the community of fans or register to be contacted as soon as it will be announced and available the pre-order.
The 2015 model range was just 50, 125 e & 250cc
Even the new range Enduro and Motard is certainly not gone unnoticed to the public of the Milan Show. The new bikes in 2017 have been completely renovated in all their components, with significant improvements introduced in terms of off-road riding thanks to the new CrMo frames and ergonomics, new plastics and saddles.
A further appreciation went for the high quality Arrow exhausts om the 250cc model. Completely revised aesthetics and components on the bikes are now available in two color variants: the traditional factory livery White-Red-Blue and the aggressive Black edition, with Black-Red-White graphics.
There is also good sales success of the 50cc models among young guys, who are taken by aesthetics, performance and the very high technical and quality construction of these motorcycles.
