Ottolenghi & Actis Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1928-32

In Caluso, north of Turin in the Aosta region, Ottolenghi & Actis built motorcycles using engines from, most likely, Piazza or Ladetto & Blatto, of 173cc and in 1930 they also used larger JAP engines.

The business was renamed Umberto Ottolenghi Motocicli.

Production ended in 1932.

Umberto Ottolenghi designed a series of OHV V-twins for Moto Rumi. The prototypes looked very promising when revealed in 1960 but Rumi had financial woes so they did not enter production.
