WORLD PREVIEW FOR CABALLERO 700– The first Fantic twin could only be a CABALLERO, an iconic motorbike that has marked the past, the present and now looks to the future of the Italian Motorbike Manufacturer. The CABALLERO 700 is a true scrambler, boasting even more performance than its smaller sisters: riding pleasure, safety and technology.

Equipped with a 689cc liquid-cooled euro 5 engine capable of delivering 75 horsepower and 68 Nm and a 4-valve twin-shaft timing system, it is equipped with updated electronics thanks to a 3.5'' rounded tft screen with Bluetooth connectivity, 3 riding modes (road, off-road and custom) as well as a full LED headlight and turn signals. The CABALLERO 700 also stands out for its active safety with the debut of traction control and Abs Cornering, an evolution of the system capable of reading the bike's inclination in real time and adapting the response of the braking system, thus avoiding falls due to front-end closure. The frame is a single steel backbone-type frame in crmo steel and the swingarm in aluminium, while the suspension is Marzocchi with a 45 mm-VRM fork.

The wheels are 19" at the front and 17" at the rear, while the braking system has Brembo radial calipers and floating discs of ø330mm at the front and ø245mm at the rear. A weight of only 180kg makes it very agile and light, but with a good range with a 14-litre fuel tank. Offered in two eye-catching colours, pure red and heritage blue. Available on the market from April 2023 with a target price of €10.000.


The Caballero family continues to expand. In the MY23 of the much-loved Caballero product family, all displacements (500cc and 125cc) and 2022 versions are confirmed (Scrambler, Flat Track, Rally, Deluxe), in which a new Caballero 500 Deluxe is added with a tricolour white/silver/gold tank livery to give a new twist to the classic-urban style that distinguishes this version.

NEW FANTIC ELECTRIC: Fantic Electric, Unlock the city. On show at EICMA: the new electric scooter by Fantic, a green solution for a smart city. The Italian-made Fantic Electric has a highly innovative design, with a special trellis frame in aluminium alloy. The two 16" wheels make it very safe for urban use, easily tackling obstacles such as rails and uneven surfaces. It comes in two models, L1 and L3. The L1 has a maximum speed of 45 km/hr, while the L3 goes at up to 65 km/hr. The 3-kW motor by Dell'Orto spa, also completely made in Italy, gives the bike extra sprinting power.

The Fantic Electric is fitted with a standard 2.2 kWh battery that can be scaled up to 4.4 kWh, and the inboard motor fixed to the frame reduces the unsprung weight, ensuring greater comfort and riding pleasure. With more than a 100-km range, the new Fantic Electric removes all the stress around re-charging, while the rapid keyless ignition system unlocks the starter even while the keys are in your pocket. The top case and under-seat compartment provide enough space for any need. With full connectivity and a 5’’ LCD screen, you can use the official App to keep track of all the scooter's functions and receive updates. This model is fitted with a USB socket, ideal for charging your smartphone, with a holder also available as a useful accessory. The bike comes in a range of bright, stylish colours. The L1 version will be available on the market from February 2023 and will have a retail price of €3.990 while the L3 version will be available from May 2023 with a price yet to be revealed.

ENDURO AND MOTARD 50 AND 125cc RANGE: Fantic has been experiencing huge success in the global market, with over 10,000 units delivered in 2022. Always aware of the latest trends among young people, the company offers cutting-edge, stylish solutions, including its new Enduro and Motard lines, presented at the EICMA fair along with the two Performance and Competition versions. A completely new, 100% racing-inspired design combined with numerous technical upgrades make the Fantic 50 and 125cc models a real reference point of this category. These are further complemented by the 250cc trail enduro version, the perfect combination of power and ease of riding. Fantic is proud to lead the rankings for the best-selling motorbikes in Italy, coming top in the 50cc category and second in the 125cc.

The Enduro range consists of the XE 50, XEF 125 and XEF 250 Trail bikes, for maximum fun and top performance. The Factory feeling of the MY23 range is even more evident in its design, which boldly echoes Fantic's victorious racing range. There is also a close connection on the technical side, with a new rear axle with side access to the air filter. An important detail not only on race courses, but also in terms of easier routine maintenance. The new XE 50 and XEF 125 are fitted with sturdy, high-tech Minarelli engines, a guarantee of reliability and high performance.

In the Motard range, the new XM 50 is a real all-rounder: nimble, nippy and great fun. The stand-out features of this model are the suspension with upside-down stems, CrMo chassis and the powerful Minarelli 50cc with 6 gears. The XM 125 model, at the top of the category, makes for responsive high-performance biking, transforming every ride into pure fun. It also has the most advanced 125cc 4-stroke engine for this segment of the market, with variable ignirion timing providing full-bodied power at every speed. Performance trims will be available from this November while Competition models from December 2022.

FANTIC RACING: THE NEW XXF 450 READY TO AMAZE - Further improving a bike that boasts limitless power and aggressiveness, while keeping its agility and control qualities unaltered, this is the challenge won by the Fantic R&D department, which has managed to completely renew the XXF450 in every compartment. The engine boasts an absolutely distinctive solution on the market: the inverted cylinder head, for a direct, short and efficient frontal intake line. This compact engine layout, combined with a cylinder inclined backwards from the vertical, centralises the masses to the maximum, guaranteeing extreme agility and impressive handling. The Arrow exhaust guarantees optimum torque and linearity of delivery combined with a boost at high revs! A motorbike that introduces for the first time in motocross the concept of aero flow, i.e. the study of aerodynamic flows around the bike and the rider to optimise performance. It is characterised by large slits with winglets that maximise the extraction of engine heat. Personalised mappings through the "WiGET" app make it easy to set the ECU on the control unit. You can "set" one of the maps developed by Fantic Racing or create your own ideal engine set-up according to the type of terrain and weather conditions. You can also read the bike's meter, add service notes, read the diagnostics and view engine data in real time. All monitored through the screen of your smartphone. The XXF 450 boasts a chassis synthesised in a refined aluminium frame, light, agile, precise with forged, extruded and stamped sections in perfect symbiosis designed to guarantee the maximum balance between lightness and rigidity. The best technology applied, capable of giving safety and stability in every riding situation, allowing you to complete jumps and banking with great ease, maintaining superior stability even in extremely fast situations. The Kayaba suspension package is confirmed, using the SSS (Speed Sensitive System) fork. Enhancing the model is the standard Traction Control and Launch Control GET. The situation is always under control thanks to the LC-GPA screen positioned on the mudguard to better manage starts and to display the different levels of traction control available. The ergonomics have also been developed in symbiosis with the Factory Team, with ad hoc, slim, uncluttered and perfectly shaped plastics offering maximum comfort and riding freedom.

FANTIC BIKES: here's the new 2023 range of e-MTBs, trekking and urban e-bikes, on show at EICMA. From the racing spirit of the company comes Fantic’s new e-mtb bikes, and from market trends comes the inspiration for the Trekking and Urban bikes. Important news is the introduction of the Yamaha motor. After the achievements in the off-road world, the relationship with the Japanese manufacturer is consolidated even more and Fantic introduces the new YMC PW-X3 (85 Nm) and YMC PW-S2 (75 Nm) motors to its Ebike range. These motors feature “torque at zero cadence”, meaning an immediate motor response, a huge advantage especially when riding uphill and for the automatic assist mode that changes the level of assistance to adapt to the needs of every rider. Among the innovations in the my23 bikes is the new injected composite brace, developed jointly by the Fantic R&D department and Acerbis, which allows the frame to respond better to any unevenness in the ground. This has been included in the Trail Alu, All mountain, Enduro and DH lines. Fantic is exhibiting its whole BIKE range at EICMA: from the MTB Trail, All Mountain, Enduro, and Downhill bikes, to the world of Trekking with the Living and Living Easy models, and the City line with Living City and the two iconic ISSIMO and ISSIMO 45 designs
