A Brief History of the Marque

Founded in 1909 by Giuseppe Gilera in Milan, the Gilera company's first machine was a 317cc OHV engine with belt drive to the rear wheel. Most other models were SV until he reverted to OHV in 1926.

Giuseppe began his working life at the age of 15 with Bianchi and later worked with Moto-Rève, among others.

Gilera acquired rights to the Rondine four cylinder engine in 1935, which marked the beginning of a 40-year stretch of racing victories and the adoption of the configuration by a great many other marques including MV Agusta.

The Gilera marque was acquired by Piaggio, who closed the Arcore factory in 1993 ending a remarkable chapter of motorcycling history which endured for 84 years.

Gilera 150 Turismo 1953
Are you able to tell me if this bike (which I've just bought in England) would have had a speedometer fitted when it was made?
Many thanks,

The speedometer was mounted in the headlight - see Gilera 1954 gallery. Gilera 1953 image posted to Comments

Gilera Think it's a 150 but that's the question I have

Hello, I was recently given the task of identifying then restoring a Gilera. From my research it looks to be the 150 but the seat I only see on guibs. It has the bars of the 150 sport it seems. I guess it was discovered with a vespa inside some tires or something here in New England. My reason for mentioning that is that the vin looks to be concealed or was concealed at one point I assume for import sans tarrif but that's only a guess. Any help would be appreciated. Included are pics of the vin # and the bike

I send him pictures of some of the motorcycles that I have for the sale. These three motorcycles are working perfectly.
The price of the Corsa Gilera is of us$13000 (dollars), it is similar to the one that used in international competition by Salvador Caldarella (the corridor that more it stood out with Gilera 500 in Argentina). This motorcycle that I offer for sale was of a non official team. I have pictures of the motor with the special tree of levies, piston of high compression, cylinder and special cover of aluminium with carburdor SS of 35 millimeters.
The Gilera 500 of 1934, denominated Sei Giorni, became famous in 1930 to win an international career of six days of duration. The motorcycle is 72 years old and it works perfectly without any faltantes type. The price of this motorcycle is of us$7000 (dollars)
The motorcycle Universal 600 cc., of origin Switzerland, and of the year 1950, it is working perfectly and she came equipped with that sidecar that I restored to be outside of the motorcycle about 30 years. The price of her is of u$s 7000 (dollars).
In another mail I will send him more pictures of other motorcycles that I have for the sale. I have several Rumi: Formichino, Sport, Bicarburatore, Junior 125, and 200 Sport.
The motorcycles have documentation to export.
I will thank him to publish these motorcycles. That you have a good day. Greetings, Marcelo from Argentina.

Gilera confirms plans for a full range of big-bore bikes

Supersports 600 will be on show at Milan this September

17 Jun 2001
By Ben Purvis --

Gilera is to return with a full range of bikes almost a decade after the production of its last bike.

As reported by earlier this year, the firm's first new bike - a 600cc supersports contender - is due to be shown at the Milan show in September, before going into full production in summer 2002. The bike is due to use the engine from Suzuki's GSX-R600, mated to Gilera's own frame and styling.

The deal to buy Suzuki engines has yet to be confirmed, although the firm is confident it will secure a supply of motors.

However, even if the deal falls through, Gilera owner Piaggio is committed to building the bike - even if it means developing a new engine of its own.

Piaggio has big plans for Gilera, which will spearhead the company's full-scale invasion of the big bike market.

Piaggio boss Stefano Rosselli Del Turco has confirmed the firm is working on a range of two-cylinder engines of its own, ranging from 600cc to 1000cc, to provide power for the next generation of Gilera models to debut over the next few years. He said: " We have a timescale over which we will introduce a full range of bikes, but I am not going to tell you what that timescale is. "

The firm doesn't see Gilera as a competitor to other Italian brands, instead fixing its target firmly on Japanese manufacturers. Rosselli Del Turco said: " We hope to price the bikes between Italian machines like Ducatis and the Japanese bikes. We believe there is a market there. "

Although details of the new Gileras are still secret, the two-cylinder engines are expected to be in a traditional V configuration. Gilera has a recent history of such designs - in the early 1990s it developed a 60-degree V-twin similar to Aprilia's RSV motor. Running on either carbs or injection, the prototypes developed between 100bhp and 140bhp, but the plug was pulled on the project in 1993 as Piaggio, which has owned Gilera since 1969, believed the time was not right.

Eventually, the range is likely to include machines of most configurations, from single cylinder trailies to four-cylinder superbikes.

Piaggio's all-out attack on the bike market might be led by Gilera, but could include other brands. The firm is currently in talks with MV Agusta boss Claudio Castiglioni - hammering out a deal which should see Piaggio taking control of the MV Agusta, Cagiva and Husqvarna brands if an agreement can be reached.

This isn't a form letter...but a THANK YOU for all of you that either responded to my questions or helped me with my restoration project of an old Sears Allstate motorcycle. This is the first time I've used the internet as a tool for one of my projects....and I must say it has proven to be one of the better tools in my tool box. I'll attach a couple of jpg.pix you can open and see the end result. (I've got more if you want to see) It's not a 100 point bike, but it turned out nice.

I'm thinking about pulling the engine back out and painting it either flat black or red like the rest of the bike...whata you guys think.??

Now for the really hard I keep her or sell her and start on yet another project...seems I'm just not happy unless I'm bringing these things back from the graves...Again...thanks -- Kelly in Fallbrook Calif. -- eodrke at Gilera 106SS Sears Allstate

Sears brought in Gileras but only in 2 sizes - 106cc and 124cc - and from the mid to late '60's. I don't recall Sears bringing in any Gileras from the '50's. As for Montgomery Ward, they brought in rebadged Benellis.

The serial number doesn't sound familiar - I have a 1958 172 Rossa Extra and some literature - and it's serial is 171-3442. I believe some other 172 models had serial no. beginning with 172. I can't recall any Gilera models with shooting stars (maybe MV) but I'll check my reference book tonight.

If the original poster can send me a photo, it will help in identifying what he has. As for parts, if it is a '50's Gilera, Bob Wright in the UK maybe the only bet, otherwise you'll have to scour the internet, magazine ads and swap meets.
