Founded by Campanelli, the Pesaro company specialized in the production of off-road motorcycles of 50, 125 and 250cc for motocross and enduro.

The 50cc models (cinquantini) used Minarelli engines and the larger displacement machines Hiro with power outputs between 26hp for the 125 and up to 38hp for the 250cc machines. Particularly interesting is the Maltry Hiro 320cc Sammy Miller, in collaboration with Rene Maltry of Switzerland.
