Built by the Societè Brevetti Malasagna di Pinerolo, owned by Emilio Malasagna and his brother.

The BMP was powered by two-stroke 250 and 350cc twin-cylinder unit-construction engines with a 4-speed gearbox with belt drive.

Fitted with Druid forks and a front brake, a sprung saddle and weighing a mere 70kg it could achieve 70 km/h.
