Gritzner Monza


Gritzner Monza logo

Gritzner obtained the rights to the Mars Monza, building these until the 1970s.

Unlike the many other lightweights in this period, the Monza Super Sport was built as a true motorcycle. It did not have the bicycle-style pedals fitted to most machines of this capacity. The three-speed gearbox was foot-operated rather than the twist grip type used on other motorcycles.

This is the race version of the Monza Super Sport - quite a rare motorcycle. The restored machine is on display at a private museum near Stuttgart in Germany.
