Just two years later, Ossa is showing a pair of new models based on that same pioneering powerplant. Introduced at the 2011 Milan Show last November, the exotic 250i and 300i enduros wrap more off-road exotica in their steel-tube perimeter frames than you’d expect from a brand that’s been asleep for nearly three decades. Both engines are based on the 272cc TR280i, but are massaged to suit the higher speeds and longer distances of serious cross-country work. Pre-mixed fuel—no oil-injection yet—rides in a sculpted plastic tank where a normal bike’s cylinder would sit. The first production bikes are scheduled to roll out of Ossa’s Girona works, 65 miles northeast of Barcelona, in June of 2013. Given the growing popularity of Endurocross and extreme enduro events, the company’s timing looks just about perfect.
