Prior to WWII, Mario Bonvicini had been a successful motorcycle racer.
The motorcycles he produced after the war had engines from ILO
and NSU, as well as some of his own design. Production
included 50cc and 175cc racing machines with frames by Verlicchi, and also
Built in Bologna from 1952 until 1988, some of the factory output was
marketed in Germany under the Tornax banner. Minarelli
engines were fitted to the Pokerino scooter of 1963.
BM Bonvicini & Moto BM appear to be the same marque. Bonvinci models
include the Jaguarino Turismo and the Jaguarino Cros, both with twostroke
engines of 48cc
Bonvinci also built the Yankee Boss for Yankee Motors of Schenectady, New York.
* One source says founded 1952.
NB. Henshaw lists an earlier BM, Italy 1928-1931, a collaboration between Antonio Baudi and sidecar maker Meldi using JAP OHV 500cc engines.
Pokerino 50cc 1963-1964 (also marketed by Negrini as the Farfallino and Beta as the Cignono)

Please, thank you Jim (UK) SS69RY Mon Jun 12 2017 A.j.cowie at outlook.com Bonvicini, BM Moto Possibly Jaguarino Hi. I've recently purchased a 50cc Bonvicini but unsure of the model or mich else about this bike (other than the very useful information on your website). Frame number starts "BMA -" and 4 numbers which are slightly illegible at this time. Motor is a Motori Franco with markings shown in images. Could you please tell me more about this bike (model, production year etc). Could you also advise anyone for spare parts and can provide a dating certificate? Many thanks. Andy. Leicester

Hello I wanted to point out that this moped is a BM Bonvicini transport model, with engine FB Minarelli 3-speed transmission with forced cooling. I might add that all bikes and mopeds bm bonvicini, although the brand on the engine bm bonvicini in reality engines are fbm, fb minarelli, and franco morini motori engines.

Information concerning "boss" mini bike
Bonvicini? Moto BM?
I was given a mini bike and I was hoping to get an idea of how much
it is worth. It reads "Moto BM Bologna Italy" on the side of the motor
and the back of the seat. It was made by Bonvicini and it is called "boss".
I have the owners manual and the motor is a Motori Morini Franco (super
sport turbo 48cc). The bike is in fair/good condition and runs awesome.
Can someone help me with its value? Thank you.
