Here is a press release from OSSA. If you have followed KR over the last couple of months you may remember me reporting on the development of a new OSSA fuel injected 2-stroke 280cc trails bike code named the TR280i.

OSSA can best be described as a couture Spanish motorcycle company with a deep heritage in motorcycles that is heavily centered around the trials genre.

If we’re lucky we might even see one of these magnificent trials machines make it downunder!

16th September 2010 - THE NEW OSSA TR280i was one of the surprises at the Trial des Nations held this weekend in Myslenice, Poland.

The OSSA technical and design-team, as well as the General Manager of OSSA Factory SL, Joan Gurt, accompanied by an engineer from the Japanese company Kokusan Denki, presented two units of the TR280i.

Driven by it’s motorcycle tester Marc Colomer, the assisting public could appreciate the good return and the lightness of the motorcycle that is about to enter into the market.

Meeting with FIM
The OSSA management and responsible of the FIM seized the opportunity to meet. The International Motorcycle Federation showed it’s excitement regarding OSSA’s participation in the World Championship. Ossa from her side presented the team and the motorcycle that will compete next year. One of the key issues discussed during the meeting is the regulation about the weight for competition motorcycles as the TR280i’s weight is below the regulatory rules.

Apart from seeing how the TR280i rolls, the OSSA presence at the competition generated a great welcome amongst the fans from all over the world who visited the OSSA-paddock with the OSSA trailer and the 2 exhibited motorcycles.

The OSSA TR280i is starting production in Girona. The first 1250 units are expected to be distributed internationally from October on.
