OSSA's new FI two stroke..

Recommended Posts

Link worked for me. That is one seriously cool bike. I wonder how it performs in the real world. The suspension should be absolutely top notch and the brakes should stop it on a dime.

I would love to read a comprehensive, real world test on that one.

If only Yamaha would use some of their corporate R&D assets on their two stroke line that bike would be blue instead of any other color.

The fact that this bike has top quality components, cutting edge technology, and only weighs #214 lbs, is a testamate that the euros get the point. Simplicity, lightweight, and better power to weight should be the goal of all manufacturers. Instead, Yamaha rolls out a #280 lb pig called a WR450f, and calls it better. I hope i'm not the only one becoming tired of these overweight, oversized Jap land missiles they call off road/enduro machines. Those types of machines are NOT the future........They are inexcusable attempts to build what fits their agendas. The next 5 years should be interesting, and i strongly believe it involves 2 stroke engine technology if this sport is going to have any future.:busted:

A really nice looking machine. Interesting that they went with an electronic exhaust valve. Honda didn't have the greatest result with their electronic RC valve, but the OSSA effort might be different. Would like to see someone introduce high pressure direct injection, but the OSSA double injection appears novel. Nice effort!

Yamaha, take some hints and start advancing your two stroke!

It appears the only thing the Big 4 are interested in advancing is their profit.

There was huge rumor when they came out with the 280i that this bike was to follow. Bam here it is The bike that reinvented the 2 stoke enduro. Im probly selling one of my yz's now so I can start saving.. See you later yamaha Ossa pulled out all the stops.

I'm extremely impressed with the packaging. Getting the expansion chamber away from the ground and obstacles typically present in an enduro is nothing short of genius.

WAKE UP YAMAHA!! There is a market for this stuff.

The pipes nothing. The weight, how narow the bike is with no gas tank up top, 1 piece case no need to split case to rebuild lower end everything comes out one side, and electric start.Thank you Ossa for thinking outside the box. Ive been waiting for this bike for a year and it was well worth the wait!

Errr ya that would be called capitalism. I guess it is only fitting that the socialist Euros are making a comeback since they are not interested in advancing profit... :busted::lol::busted:

Anyway LMAO you couldn't get parts for these guys in the 70s and won't be any better now. And I bet the Euro nostalgia train will be soon be bringing back Bultaco so they can sit in pieces in garage all over again. I guess the Big 4 are shaking in their boots.:bonk::lol::lol:

The weight is impressive, especially considering electric start and a 6 speed gearbox is included. The fuel positioning almost reminds you of the '84-'85 Honda RC250 full works bikes that held fuel volume extremely low in the frame and required an electric fuel pump to supply the carb. Obviously, the old Honda tank design will not work with a perimeter frame, but the OSSA design accomplishes the same result Honda did years ago.

Chaconne is probably right that parts availability might be a concern, especially with the relatively low number of production units planned on being built.

Irrespective, it is still great to see ANY manufacturer pushing the 2 stroke envelope.

Hats off to OSSA.
