Although Ossa motorcycles haven’t been imported to the USA in decades, the firm is still alive in kicking in Europe. Two years ago they introduced the reverse-cylinder, fuel-injected, 280cc, two-stroke TR280i trials bike and as of late, have been reintroducing trail and enduro models.
The latest is the two-stroke, fuel-injected, 250cc or 300cc Enduro bike—based on the TR280 engine platform. Two-stroke single cylinder engine uses a one-piece crankcase and removable cassette. The fuel injection gest dual-fuel injection technology (similar to the KX250F), developed in collaboration with Kokusan. One injector is located in the crankcase and the other in the cylinder. This new system allows a long series of combinations in the set-up and management in the power characteristics of the Ossa Enduro 250i/300i. The Enduro250i/300 has an innovative electric starter, snake pipe and cowled radiator. It comes with a chromoly frame, Ohlins suspension, Bermbo brakes and a 213-pound claimed weight.Ossa wants to return its brand to prominence with the TR280i trials bike, trail-based Explorer and now the Enduro 250i/300i. The goal is to have 20 units for importers in early 2013. The first production, which will take place at the Ossa factory in Girona will be about 2000 units to be sold by Summer of 2013.
