Fantic to buy Motori Minarelli

Fantic Motor and Yamaha Motor Europe have announced their joint intention that Fantic Motor will acquire 100% of the shares in Motori Minarelli by the end of 2020. Minarelli has produced Yamaha engines under licence and also supplies its power units to Fantic.

This move will see Minarelli retain its identity under Fantic ownership and allow Yamaha Motor Europe the opportunity to take a less active role, in keeping with Yamaha Motor’s global strategy.

The acquisition will have to be condoned by the European Works Council but so far it has all the hallmarks of a done deal. This would seem to put Fantic in the proverbial win-win situation of having the security of its own engine supply as well as having access to the latest Yamaha engine technology.
