A retro 125 inspired by the track
Single-cylinder Euro5, 13.6 hp, 10.5 Nm, 133 kg dry, 4.485 euros
Returned to business 5 years ago, the Italian brand FB Mondial has made a name for itself by offering small-displacement motorcycles with a seductive retro design, first with its HPS / Hipster, then with its streamlined Pagani version. In the fall of 2018, the manufacturer's café racer was also accompanied by the promise of a tracker version. The promise is now kept since Mondial has just launched its Flat Track 125.
As on its other models, the brand plays the retro card to the full by complying here with the codes of track racing, whether with the ground clearance raised, the 19-inch spoked rims, the double exhaust in the high position. or even the racing plate at the front which bears the number 57 in reference to the year 1957 during which Mondial won four world titles.
Contrary to appearances, the headlights are present at the front, just under the plate, with two small LED elements, a technology that is also found on the rear light and the indicators. Modernity also goes through a color TFT screen with adaptive lighting and two display modes.
At the heart of the bike, there is always a liquid-cooled 4-stroke single-cylinder with double overhead camshaft, but this one developed with Dell'Orto now meets the Euro5 standard. On the performance side, it is still capable of delivering 10 kW of power and a torque of 10.5 Nm.
The cycle part is not left with its large inverted fork and its rear shock absorber, its radial caliper with 4 pistons at the front or its spoked rims. The whole is quite light with only 133 kg dry. The weight will therefore remain under the bar of 150 kilos since the tank carries only 9.5 liters of fuel.
Offered only in black, the Mondial Flat Track is priced at 4,485 euros and is therefore placed on the top of the 125 segment in the middle of the Yamaha MT-125, Kawasaki Z125, Honda CB125R, Suzuki GSX-S 125 and KTM 125 Duke.
