A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1969-1980*

A Cesena company which had its debut with 48cc sports motorcycle powered by FB Minarelli at the 1969 Milan Show, and at the 1971 show announced a P4 powered chopper with apehangers, hightail seat and sharfin exhaust. Later, it specialized in the construction of off-road enduro and cross machines.

The Sport Competition of 1970 had an FB Minarelli 7.9 hp two-stroke engine with a four-speed gearbox and a claimed top speed of 120 km/h.

The company closed in 1980 and a new company, Unimoto, took over production.

Possibly related to Gino Milani of San Michele, bicycle manufacturer. San Michele is 40km from Cesena.

* Notes: One source says that production continued until 1981.
