A legend returns?

In 1976, a legend entered the stage: In Marrakech, the YAMAHA XT 500 was presented for the first time – the world’s first large series enduro. It ushered in a new era of motorcycle racing, which was established by the victories in the Rally Paris-Dakar ’79 and ’80.

XT500 (1 von 1)

With our FANTIC Caballero 500 Superleggenda we have created a tribute to the mother of all enduros: Golden rims, simplicity, understated elegance and kept in the classic colors black / red / white from the 80s. The Superleggenda manages to bring the legacy of the XT500 back to the streets in modern form 46 years later, without falling victim to the addiction to comfort, connectivity and infotainment.
