Invicta Motorcycles Italy

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured by Ditta Motocicli Invicta, A. Zanasi, Bologna.

Production years: 1951-1956[1]
Two-strokes of 74cc, 98cc and 123cc made in Bologna The Italian brand has closed about half the 50's, but the brand was then reborn in prinmi 60s to produce only mopeds, whereas previously he had also produced mololeggere 75 cc and 98 cc.

Most models had two-speed Pettirosso P2 engines from FBM, but at least one example has a three-speed P3 from 1956. This may have been a replacement engine, so dates of manufacture remain unclear.

1. Another source gives 1951-1954, however the P3 engine was only produced in 1956, the year the FBM company divided into Moto Morini and Minarelli.
2. An Italian moped appeared in the 1960s with the same name, and there was also an Invicta of Coventry (see Francis Barnett), a cyclecar named Invicta from Leamington, England, and another Invicta from Clapham 1902-06.
