We want to talk about small manufacturer that were present at the 2016 EICMA and they don’t have a proper media covered, of course our choice is purely Subjective and it is mainly based on passion and originality of the company, this two term apply perfectly to the new Fanatic motor model: the new CABLLERO 500.
In fact Fantic motor will produce the new Caballero in two version: a Scrambler, and a FLAT TRACK, this two model will be equipped with a single cylinder 4 stroke engine with 3 variant: 125cc, 250cc, and our main concern the 500cc.
Before we start talking about the Caballero Scrambler 500, it is good to know that this engine is developed by the Chinese brand “ZONGSHEN”.
The new Fantic Caballero Scrambler 500 is equipped with a 449cc single cylinder four stroke, developing 43hp and 40nm of torque, the chassis is a backbone steel, but the swing arm is made from aluminum, the chassis is coupled to Fantic FRS 41mm upside down fork and an Fantic FRS Mono shock at the rear, to stop this Scrambler we have a single 300mm with four piston caliper at the front and a 245mm unit at the rear.
To be honest it’s not the specs sheet that will make choose the new Fantic Caballero Scrambler over a BMW R nine T Scrambler, or a Ducati Scrambler, or a Triumph Bonneville, but it’s rather his style and his price, we still don’t have the price tag, but it will probably cost less than the 3 bikes mentioned before, and we think the design match the perfectly the Scrambler style, especially with these knobby tires and the wide handle bar.
The new Fantic Caballero Scrambler and even the LAT TRACKER version can make their place in this disputed market especially with the big advantage of the price.
