Fantic Motor, based in Italy, has unveiled the new 2021 XEF 250. Although, we don’t see the entire Fantic portfolio getting converted into 2021 motorcycles. As we still need to see the latest version of XE 125.
- Triumph unveils the Scramblers
- Royal Enfield to go electric by 2024
- Yamaha unveils the new Tracer 9 GT

But then the 2021 XEF 250 comes after the successful partnership between Fantic and Yamaha.
The new XEF 250 comes with the Yamaha’s 250cc litre single motor.
Further, we may see the new XE 125.
The Fantic XEF 250 arrives with 248cc single-cylinder which comes made by Yamaha. The new engine gets the Euro5 tag and has a six-speed transmission.
249cc single-cylinder setup
Athena-GET has built engine control, which works with the help of an app. However, there are no performance specs available.
Design and Frame
Yamaha, as we know, has developed the frame and the motor. The XEF 250 gets the aluminium made swingarm.
Further Yamaha has also built the aluminium perimeter chassis. What more the new XEF 250 has fully adjustable 48 USD fork with 310 mm of spring travel.
While on the opposite end we see rear shock absorber, which comes linked via a deflection with a 317 mm travel. The shocks come from the Kayaba.
The flat handlebar gives more confidence.
A 270 single-disc performs the brake duties at the front while the rear gets the 245 discs.
LED lights and Metzeler six days extreme tires on both ends with 21-inch DID rim at the front has a 90/90 tire and 30/90 tire comes on the 18-inch DID rim on the opposite end.
The 7.9 litres fuel tank with a 115-kilogram weight of the entire structure is something to look forward.
Fuel tank and the seat looks plush.
When it comes to exhaust, it does come from Arrow. Fantic has priced the model in Italy, and it comes at the cost of 9,490 euros which includes the 22 per cent VAT.
We would see other cool models from Fantic getting updated like the Fant Motor Caballero the scrambler which comes in 125, 250 and 500cc segment.
The rear LED horizontal sleek unit looks absolutely adorable.
