Kram-It moto d'epoca

La Kram-It nasce verso la fine degli anni Settanta ad Arcore col nome di Kramer poi trasformato appunto in Kram-It.

La sua produzione è sempre dedicata a modelli fuoristradistici. Negli anni Ottanta la sede viene trasferita a Gazzaniga, in provincia di Bergamo, e continua la produzione con motori Minarelli e Rotax, da 50 fino a 300 cc.

Nel 1987 la Kram-It rileva il marchio HRD. La HRD Motor, nulla a che fare con la celebre Casa inglese, viene fondata nel 1980 e la sigla significa Happy Red Devils.

La Casa varesina si mette subito in mostra con la realizzazione di veloci e raffinate 125 da strada denominate White, Red e Silver Horse.

Nella seconda meta' degli anni Ottanta la Casa si trasferisce da Busto Arsizio a San Vittore Olona.

Poi disavventure finanziarie causano la fine dell'avventura motociclistica ed il marchio viene acquisito dalla Kram-It.

Successivamente questi marchi sono rilevati dalla Exy Engineering Group di Valmadonna in provincia di Alessandria che realizza moto da cross ed enduro.

La storia successiva della Kram-it e legata a quella della HRD (vedi HRD).


Kram-It was established towards the end of the 1970s by Fritz Kramer of Germany, and was initially named Kramer Italia.

Their production models were almost all fuoristradistici (offroad, enduro). In the 1980s the company moved to Gazzaniga in the province of Bergamo and continued to produce machines using engines from Minarelli and Rotax of 50 to 300cc.

Kram-It created the brand HRD. HRD Motor, no association with famous English marque, was established in 1980 and the abbreviation means Happy Red Devils. These were fast and elegant 125cc road machine models named White, Red and Silver Horse. .

In the second half of the eighties the company moved from Busto Arsizio in Varese to San Vittore Olona on the other side of Legnano, but financial difficulties cause the end of the motorcycling adventure and the brand was acquired by Kram-It.

These brands are recognized by the Engineering Group of Exy Related Categories in Alessandria province that produced motocross and enduro.

The subsequent history of Kram-It is linked to that of the HRD.
