The name 'Mondial' first appeared on a motorcycle in 1948 when the Boselli brothers (FB = Fratelli Boselli) introduced a revolutionary double-overhead-camshaft 125cc racer. Mondial's miniature masterpiece brought the Bologna manufacturer its first World Championship the following year and proved equally dominant in 1950 and '51.
The SOHC version was very successful commercially.
