Alfer Motorcycles

Founded by Francesc Almirall and Ramón Ferrnández in Barcelona, 1980, production began in 1982 with 125 and 250cc enduro machines, followed later the same year with the first of their motocrossers. The machines were designed for serious competition and over the following 30 years constantly evolved. Alfer enduro machines won Spanish national competitions in both the 80cc and 125cc classes.

Models include the VR 250 Enduro and the VR 250 Super Motard. Both have Ohlins rear suspension units, Marzzochi forks, Brembo brakes and other quality components.

They also built a trials machine, the TX 300 Trial, in 1992. There were many other models.

The firm ceased production in 2011 and the company was acquired by Motorepublic who build electric motorcycles.

alfer plastics
2001 vr250
Hey Guys,
Just wondering what bikes all the plastics originally belong to.
I've been told that the radiator shrouds are off a cr250, the rear guard of a kx125 and the front of a yz. Is this true?

Alfer VR 250 2000 model
Hi, When I pull in the clutch, it sounds a little noisy. Is this normal? and how much oil do I put in the bike, as there is no ml on the engine anywhere?
If I decided to wreck this bike, how would I go about it and what sites should I go on to?
Thank you
Victoria, Australia

Res: ALFER 250 VR

i think I know the year of the bike mentioned by Johan from Sweden. I had on here in Brazil. It's a 96 and the colour of it was like in the attachment photo.
I know I have a picture of it. I'll see if I find and then post it here. In the meanwhile here goes a picture of the actual one. If anyone has an electronic copy of the carburator manual I would appreciate if it could be sent to me. It's a Mikuni TM38.

I think it still makes motocross and enduro bikes. It is related to the disappeared Anvian.
