F.B. Mondial 175 Super Sprint 1960

In 1956 a new range was introduced at the Milan Fair featuring a pushrod 175cc engine produced by the Michelini company in Bologna. These motorcycles appeared in the 1957 catalogue.

In 1958 the Sprint with dual mufflers joined the range, and in 1960 the Super Sprint appeared featuring a 5-speed gearbox. Only 40 of these were built.
