Motauto Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1955

Built by Vittorio Monaco in Sesto Calende near Varese, this foot-forward machine sat the rider quite close to the ground within the torpedo-shaped enclosed bodywork which was supported by a tubular lattice frame suspended by telescopic forks and driven by a 125cc engine. It is believed that only the one machine was built, and that a two-seater version was planned.
