Orcal Astor 2018


Would you believe it if we told you that French motorcycles monopolize the best places for sale of 125 motorcycles?!? Impossible ? But if: you have to watch the poker moves of Mash or Orcal, with machines like this Astor 125. How is it? Why do these bikes rise to the top 20 for all engine sizes? ?

At the heart of the neo-retro wave, some manufacturers have performed particularly well. Especially BMW with its NineT. This revival fashion also brings to light the glories of the past, brings out the rusty trapanels from the barns, and gives desire for machines with a vintage look without shooting the wallet..
And bim, it matches. With this Astor, we fall in love with this nice little face of an old English motorcycle. Or Italian; because the connoisseurs could not help but a rapprochement with the Ducati SportClassics of the previous decade. The Astor has the face, the tinsel, and she does not hesitate to tickle her eyes.

A Euro4 update brings it good and regulatory. This results in the transplant of a Mikuni injection. Nothing less than a benchmark player in the field. Enough to improve the anti-pollution balance and performance.
Compulsory, braking becomes coupled. New footrests and new grips at the handlebars are invited for the update.

An urban scent of the 60s, with attributes for pleasure. The recipe is known and still works. Spoked rims, a stylish fuel tank, an embossed saddle, a huge ugly as well as irresistible tail light, a round headlight, an ageless engine and chrome. Full of chrome. For mudguards, passenger handles, headlight casing, mirrors, speedometers, turn signals.
The Astor can then be discovered with just as much charm. We appreciate the most demonstrative, such as the double counter, the aluminum triple clamp, the stainless steel blunderbuss exhaust, the fork bellows, the variable section handlebars. Most practical, like the plug mounted on a hinge or the central stand. The equipment and the finish have something to reconcile with the “Made In China” label. Not yet flawless, but we are no longer in discount motorcycles.
And for the nostalgic pure juice, note the presence of a kick to start. The end of the day is to start the mechanics with a good click of the calf. Luckily for those intimidated by ankle molestation, an electric starter is also present..

Orcal Astor 2018 Hey, what is this engine?!? As with Mash, we made it simple with a mono of the past, with oh so simple technology. A series of fins for cooling, 2 valves, an overhead camshaft, 5 gears in the box and 11 horsepower in the throat. This moulbif advances as a guarantee of reliability a Yamaha design. Indeed, this engine is a copy of those used in the past for the 125 YBR. Not a thunderbolt of war, just enough to go everywhere on a daily basis. And slightly exceed 100 km / h when the urge to take a walk beyond the walls of gray and glass.

The line is from another era, so will bravery. One should not expect great enthusiasm from the engine, and chassis as long as the peripherals are of the same batch. It’s vintage, with a single brake disc up front, 300mm – there’s another at the rear, when the price and low-cost filigree could have implanted a drum. The frame is an extremely simple tubular steel structure, to which are anchored a 37 mm fork and two side shocks. Basic, but impossible to do better without moving to the upper price bracket. The Orcal, just like the Mash or Bullit, does not intend to stand out in the field of performance. The look above all, ultra tight fuel consumption, and the feeling of riding on a machine from the past.

Created from scratch by the DIP (like Mash by the SIMA), the Orcal brand signs a beautiful little machine, which is a great success. While directly confronting the Seventy and Seventy-Five of the other French brand in the sector.
We will be far from being able and wanting to go to the bottom, but we will have a certain cachet during civilities between the streets.
