A Brief History of the Marque
Light motorcycle which appeared at the 1949 Milan Exhibition by the REOM Company (Societè per il Commercio e l'Industria Radio Elettrica Ottica Meccanica). It has a horizontal single-cylinder engine of 105cc, three-speed transmission in-unit with a frame which resembled the German Imme, with the engine cantilevered. The front forks are telescopic and the rear swingarm has hydraulic shock absorbers.
The machine has a 4.5 hp two-stroke engine and can achieve 75 km/h. In the following years it is built by ISSI (Scientific Research Institute of Milan Industrial). In 1952 two new versions were added to the catalogue, the Turismo and Sport, both with 125cc engines. In 1956 they released a 49cc moped version with a pressed metal frame, and a lightweight motorcycle of 98cc with the same frame. Using the same engine, in 1955 they built the 125cc Microbo, a small scooter which did not go into production.
