A Brief History of the Italian Marque

Amisa moto d'epoca

Le Officine Meccaniche di Vedano al Lambro hanno sede a Milano in via Zumbini e costruiscono una motoleggera con motore Alpino di 98 cc e motocarri.

Nel 1946 Pietro Vassena progetta un piccolo bicilindrico orizzontale a due tempi di 125 cc dotato di aspirazione a valvola rotante e montato su telaio AMISA.

La motoleggera, con motore marcato Rumi, viene esposta al salone di Milano del 1949.

Il motore viene ulteriormente modificato eliminando il distributore rotante e entra in produzione alla Rumi.

La AMISA risulta attiva dal 1946 al 1950.
