That's 74, read Seventy-Four, kilos, and 8.6 litres of juice. I read the weight and nearly wet myself. With joy, that is.

At the WTC meeting at Maldon, the local distributor was selling 2010 280 2T trials bikes for 6k, 2011 280's for 7k, and the current one for 8k, so I figure the explorer will go for maybe 9k?

For the east coast ranges I reckon it might be the best thing ever.
Do you know if the Ossa Explorer will be registerable? Supposedly the Freeride will be.

Hi RJF, the 280 2T it is based on weighs 64 kilos, ready for competition, so it's the road going gear that beefs it up. MotoCentral are the distributors, next time I'm on the northside of Canberra I'm going to drop min and see the dealer at Mitchell (Don Murray) and ask the question.

It'll be great to hear some news. Tell Don he's lost a sale by not repying to my enquiry email. I got sick of waiting for news and bought a KTM 525 instead of the Explorer.

After 30 years of riding, this is the bike I've been waiting for.
Everything about it looks awesome except the fuel range, but no doubt someone will be machining up the dies for a big tank as we speak, It probably won't have to be that big to get 250 - 300 klm out of it.

I spoke to my local dealer while I was getting a tyre fitted to my SuperDuke the other day, he says they've ordered 5 which should be here next month, he's allready sold 2 off the book.

I'd better get my deposit down

Hey guys... have you had a look at the maintenance on these?

There is an article in the July Bike mag on these.

Things like con rod etc to be replaced after something like 240 hours???

That's not a lot of running around?

Valves etc a lot less than that.

Don't have the mag with me now but the bike appealed to me until I read the maintenance schedule. It reads hi maintenance.

I would want to ride it.. not work on it.

Quite possibly at the price but I remember thinking it was here . . .

If Happy Snapper is right about the maintenance schedule it's a write off for me anyway . . . ree dick you less.


I had a 20HP SL230 Honda with 50,000 km on it - fair bit more than 240 hours ?

OK.. routine servicing.

Oil and filter: 20 hours.

Valves: 40 hours

Conrod change: 120 hours.

Now that ain't a whole lot of riding.

Basically one weekend out and you change the oil and filter.

Three weekends out and you do the valves.

Every 15 days of 8 hours riding you change the conrod.

You got to be kidding me???

It is a play bike though, made very light for a specific role. That's why it has a small fuel tank.
