Simonetta Scooters

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufactured: 1952-54

These are a later version of the Nibbio 125cc scooters built in Italy by San Cristoforo.

The machines had 8 inch wheels, a 3 speed gearbox, weight 85 kg and had a top speed of 75 km/h.

The Simonetta was to be built under licence by Ravat of France, but it does not appear to have progressed further than prototype stage.
