Verona Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Italian Marque


Motocross machines built in the 1970s and 80s. Related to Maer, some were fitted with Tau engines, others with Minarelli. They used the full floating rear suspension patented by Donald Richardson and some used the Simons forks from America.

Models included the watercooled Verona 125 Tau; 125 CR TAU, 1979; 125 Sachs, 1978; Verona Sachs 50.

It has been suggested that Verona built their own engines, and these may have been supplied to Intramotor Gloria.
