A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured in Milano 1946-1951
The Breda company (L'industria metallurgica Breda) was a leading Italian aircraft company. After the war they built a motorcycle in the style of British autocycles of the period. Fitted with a 65cc two-stroke engine, it had a pressed metal frame with the fuel tank on the front downtube, a rigid rear end and pressed metal forks.
It did not prove successful and only limited numbers were produced.
In 1955 Breda merged with Isotta Frascini, forming a very large industrial complex.
