The end result of the first OSSA participation in the Red Bull Romaniacs was excellent, with a 20th final position, which shows the excellent qualities of the OSSA Explorer 2014, as its low weight compact size and great traction which show a perfect alternative to endure bikes that use to participate at this type of events. Moreover, it has proved more than the reliability of the OSSA, in such a harsh race as the Red Bull Romaniacs, where half of the participants have not even managed to finish, the Explorer with the rider Xavi Leon at the controls worked perfectly and both the engine and the chassis were without any problems during this grueling test. The OSSA rider finished the race with a 20th position despite missing the second day due to an injury sustained on the first day. And we highlight the excellent seventh place he achieved with the Explorer on qualifying day, a very difficult and technical test that the Explorer suited perfectly. On the third day, Xavi rejoined the race and finished 20th, still a tough day where half of the riders failed to finish. The Explorer was very consistent throughout the race and with a great performance on a day that was marked by rain, making it difficult to race with many very complicated muddy climbs. The last racing day, the OSSA rider was 20th again. It was a tough day for most riders, as the track had many steps and big ups. But this did not bother the rider, who said:

General Discussion / OSSA Motorcycles History

In 1960, OSSA created a four-stroke model under licence from Morini: the 175 Gran
Turismo. It had a Morini engine that ENMA (National Aviation Engine
Company, formerly known as Elizalde) was subcontracted to manufacture at
its headquarters in Barcelona where Paseo San Juan meets Calle Riera San
In 1963, Sandro Colombo designed the 160, which gave rise to the 160 T and 160
GT versions. Colombo was a great engineer and a great person, who worked on this
and other projects but did not live to see the famous 160 go into production.

General Discussion / Jonathan Richardson "JR" joins Ossa
« on: January 27, 2013, 01:35:45 AM »

Jonathan Richardson has joined Ossa Motos UK with support from the factory in Spain for 2013. He was under contract on a two year term to the Montesa UK importers Pidcocks but he had a difficult 2012 season which kept him off the factory supported machine apart from a single event which was the Scott time and observation trial in October. He suffered a severe knee injury in Spain whilst training in the early part of last season but returned after major surgery to his damaged right knee to take a superb fourth place in the tough event proving his fitness and more importantly that the damaged knee was well on its way to recovery.
