Fantic reveals Minarelli plans

Fantic Motor announced the acquisition of 100% of Motori Minarelli shares from Yamaha Motor Europe in January this year.  Much flag waving ensued as the engine manufacturer was brought back under Italian control and ownership.

In April Fantic Motor presented its plans for the reorganisation and expansion of the Motori Minarelli operation at its Calderara di Reno base. It says it will continue to supply engines to other motorcycle manufacturers in compliance with the continuously evolving homologation regulations but in parallel to this main activity, the assembly lines have been reorganised and will now house the entire Fantic Racing range of motocross and enduro machines, with further new Fantic models designed for urban and sustainable mobility also planned.

Traditionally Motori Minarelli produced small capacity two-stroke motors but in recent years, with the Yamaha connection, it moved more towards four-stroke production producing powerplants for the XT660 and the WR125 and XEF250 motors and their performance kits.
