Underbone motorcycles are standard in Asia, particularly South East Asia, with millions sold yearly. In Malaysia, these type of motorcycles is widely known as ‘kapcai’. 

  • The Malaguti Spectre GP125 is Europe’s first underbone motorcycle. 
  • The Spectre GP125 features a 125cc single-cylinder with air-cooled engine.

While underbone motorcycles are a hit in Asia, the motorcycle is almost nonexistent in Europe. However, that is about to change thanks to the introduction of Malaguti’s Spectre GP125. 

Malaguti is an Italian motorcycle company commonly known for offering a wide range of affordable motorcycles, including scooters, enduro, supermoto, adventure and street bikes. 

However, its latest model, the Spectre GP125, is the first underbone-type motorcycle available for the European market. 

Mechanically, the Spectre GP125 makes 10hp @ 8,500rpm and 9.6Nm @ 6,500rpm thanks to its 125cc single-cylinder, 4-stroke and air-cooled engine. 

Power is delivered to the rear wheel via a manual 5-speed transmission with a final chain drive. 

Braking is done via a massive 320mm hydraulic disc brake with axial callipers at the front and a 190mm disc with single-piston callipers at the rear. Also, the Spectre GP125 runs on 17-inch wheels with 120/70 front and 90/80 at the rear. 

Other notable features include LED lights, a semi-digital instrument cluster with an analogue tachometer and telescopic forks. 

The entry-level motorcycle is currently on sale for EUR2,499 (RM11.5k). 

The 150cc underbone class in Malaysia has a new competitor in town with the new WMoto F15.
