    Very cool. From what I've read its not direct injected, but still injected (and that's good enough for me). I'd really like an ultra-light kick-start 150cc version.

    The title of the article here says "New Direct Injection Ossa Enduro Model" Maybe they didn't understand the bike data?

    it has two injectors, one in the intake and one in the cylinder head.. gonna watch this one.. they have been making some really nice trials bikes for years.. building the company back up.. like GG, beta and sherco.. nice to see another trials bike co step into mx and enduro bikes.. brings new ideas and designs into the market..

    The Ossa web site says it is "only" EFI.

    And it is only EFI so they can put the cylinder at the angle they have it at.

    If it was DI they would push the point.

    IT IS NOT DI!

    For some reason DI doesn't seem to be feasible on enduro bikes at this time.

    The companay as it now is has only made one trails bike for one year.

    The name Ossa has a history, but the new bikes are only an Ossa by name.

    Thought they had been making them for a while. I remember seeing some before,, must have been prototypes that never made it into production.

    You could be right about prototypes, I don't follow the trials scene.

    And just for the record, I posted that just after getting home from a few drinks with old friends, so don't take it to seriously.:deal

    No problem,, I remember seeing several "new models" that were due out.. as I dont follow it much either I thought they actually did produce them.. I wonder if these will even get produced??

    I read that it has one injector in the intake and one in the crankcase. That would make it not a DI motor, but still injected. Whether the article I read was accurate or not I can't say. If true, I suspect it will be easier to tune and get the throttle response right with this setup. A DI setup could potentially give cleaner emissions and more power if done right, but doing it right might cost a whole lot (bimota went under trying a while back and still didn't get it to work well).

    Has anyone heard anything else about this bike? Searching the web tells very little.

    Last I read, they are going to use Gas Gas motors until they get their motors sorted out.
