Tarbo Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1967-1969

The company was founded by Leopoldo Tartarini in Bologna, the result of a collaboration between an Italian company and Czechoslovak Jawa.

Jawa provided the engines that Tartarini modified and then fitted to its production machines.

The 1967 range included a 49cc moped slung beneath a tubular frame with 5 bhp at 6500 rpm; a 125cc with 8.5 hp at 5600 rpm; and a 350 cc twin delivering 22 hp at 5000 rpm via a four-speed gearbox.
