When a couple of passionate Italians formed Zaeta in 2007, the focus was dirt track and the minimalist beauty of the discipline. A street legal version is apparently next . . . to be known as the 530 DT.
Based on the TM 530cc motocross engine, with six speeds, a slipper clutch and a healthy 60 horsepower, the initial concept has taken the stunning form you see here. Yes, those spoked wheels take tubeless tires.
Zaeta believes the finished street bike will weigh roughly 250 pounds! If you have ridden a modern 450cc motocross bike (weighing in at roughly 225 pounds), then you have some idea of what this Zaeta is capable of . . . such as third gear, clutchless power wheelies. Things you can only get from ultra light weight combined with the huge torque of a big, modern, four-valve single. Nothing quite like it, actually.
