SPAIN: Spanish motorcycle manufacturer Wottan Motor is a newcomer to the two-wheeler industry, primarily operating in the beginner-friendly category.
The company operates in Spain and Italy and is looking forward to expanding across the continent. It offers several appealing products, especially given their reasonable prices.
Take Rebbe 125, for instance. It’s possible to mistake the Wottan Rebbe 125 for a Husqvarna Svartpilen 125 at first glance.
Indeed, Husky’s retro-modern styling is evident in the tank’s shape and design philosophy.
However, Rebbe 125 takes on a life of its own when examined more closely. Firstly, it has technology that is much more primitive than the Swedish machine owned by Austria.
The Rebbe 125 has round, retro-style headlights and standard right-side-up telescopic forks at the front. At the very least, the lights are LED, which provides enough light at night.
The Wottan Rebbe has road-focused tyres instead of dual-purpose rubber like the Svartpilen and rides on front and rear 17-inch wheels.
To meet the minimum requirements for learner-approved motorcycles, the Wottan Rebbe 125 has front and rear disc brakes with CBS as its braking hardware.
However, Wottan Motor offers ABS as an option for a premium of 240 euros (USD 252).
In terms of performance, Wottan Motor has fitted the Rebbe 125 with a relatively modern engine. A single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 125cc engine powers the Wotton Rebbe 125.
The 125cc engine doesn’t exceed the entry-level segment’s performance limits with 13.5 horsepower and 7.2 lb-ft of torque, but this power is sufficient for daily commuters and first-time drivers alike.
In terms of pricing and availability, Wottan Motor has announced that the Rebbe 125 will cost just 2,950 euros, or USD 3,103, in Spain.
It is one of the most affordable motorcycles in the retro-modern style on the market. It costs nearly half as much as the Husqvarna, which starts at 5,200 euros (5,470 USD).
