Martina Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1924-1927 (1)

A factory in Turin which in the mid-twenties assembled motorcycles using 175cc engines and others to order using components sourced from local companies and abroad.

At the time there was a long-established firm named Martina & Figli of Via Balbo 9, Torino who built a large variety of mechanical devices, mostly presses.

N.B. Date quoted is that from Tragatsch. Another source gives a later closure date of 1932.
