This small little funky looking cafe racer motorcycle was spotted near ARAI a few weeks back. We’re sure very few might be aware of the brand FB Mondial. This resurrected Italian two-wheeler manufacturer might be planning to enter the lucrative Indian market with this product spotted on the streets.

The FB Mondial Hipster, the HPS 125 is a 125cc cafe racer model which really looks unlike any other currently on sale in India. So if it does make it to the market, it will be a unique product proposition. However, there is a long way to go for this to happen.

Powering the bike is a 125cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC motor producing 14.7 HP of power and 12.3 Nm of torque matched to a 6-speed gearbox. The bike measures 2016mm in length, 765mm in width, 1060mm in height, 1370mm in wheelbase and has a ground clearance of 155mm with a seat height of 785mm.

It is unlikely that this small brand will setup a manufacturing facility in India. They might consider joining hands with a local brand for sales & service while bring the bikes to the country via CKD route.
