This just in from Riccardo Chiosi, Fantic Motorcycles designer and long-term Sideburn reader (whose Gilera, The American, was in a previous issue).

This bike just debuted at EICMA. The graphite grey is the flat track model, the red is the dual sport, on knobblies. How cool are these?!

Take a look at our last toys - Caballero three displacement : single 4-stroke 125-250-500.

Two version : dual (17"-19") and flat track (19"-19" omologated!!!) I'll keep you updated!!!

Ciao Riccardo
