Looks interesting, I remember the Ossa Pioneer model from back in the day. The pioneer was a nice enduro bike. I seem to recall it needing plug changes rather regular. It looks like it's ready for the street-don't see info on it being brought here, not sure you can tag up a 2 stroke in the US anymore (modern). OM

Street legal in Canada and US.



And it should get about 100 miles / 160km on one tank (or about what my t-dub got with a stock tank).

Kinda looks like a street legal Ploker from back in the day. A great bike for hopping over logs and cruising the stream bed with.

At 32.28" seat height and 13" clearance that looks like it could be my next bike! How much is it and how do I get it? And where is the muffler?!
Nvm, I think I spotted it centered in front of the rear tire.



Do bikes from canada have mph or kmph on the speedo?

Canadian bikes have the speedo in km/h. But I expect Osso will supply mph speedos for the US market. The US website seems to be down right now Ossa World



The bikes are from Spain.



But the price is a bit steep: $8,000.

I dont know... 8k for a 280cc 2stroke seems to be on par with yamaha and suzuki. I have a feeling I may get hurt riding this bike with it's extreme capabilities. But I have been looking for a two stroke I can share with my fiancee and anything over a 125 usually has a seat height of 39" which I could probably handle but there is no way she could straddle that.

Well I'd prefer a 300cc four stroke - worth an extra 20 pounds or whatever IMO. But still this bike looks really awesome and is definitely on my wish list. It would be a hell of a lot of fun for a bike to just make your own trails with. Probably feels like a freakin bicycle!

This is a very beautiful bike. 165lbs!!! I recently sold my Montesa 360 H6. It was an absolute monster. It would blow away most if not all 4 strokes of 650 or less cc's. It became too much for my old carcass to handle. Some lucky fellow in Australia has it now. My point is; is that this little bike deserves a good consideration for anyone looking for this type setup. The Spaniards make a great machine when they set their minds to it, and this looks like a well thought out bike. The Spanish bikes ruled until the Japs got their production levels up to a point where they could just overwhelm the market with cheap, strong bikes. OK; I'll shut up.

PS: they've got these in Iowa right now.

Boy they sure look Sweet... At 165lb I could load it down with 100lbs of 'gizmows' and still (maybe) lift it up when I fall.. Given what I have done to the TW, I either need a crane, or ride with Mike....

OK... this thing is gorgeous! Ever since I sold my pair of RD350LC's I've been missing the two stroke smoke
One was a rider the other was a parts bike with a freshly rebuilt engine... I was SOOO tempted to find a dirt bike with a baffed engine to swap the spare engine into.....

I just keep coming back to this bike, with its reasonable seat height and insanely low weight it's just so damn appealing!



I've done some looking around and it seems they are available in the US now, but dealers are quite few and far between.

Oh man trial bikes are all about standing no sitting so the seat is not as cush as you think.
