500 cc 4 temps
28ch à 5.000 tr/min
4 vitesses 160 Km/H
Poids 130 Kg
69 exemplaires fabriqués

Le Condor sera victorieux dès sa première sortie en classe production, au circuit de Lario.

Nello Pagani répètera cette victoire l'année suivante, mais en classe course, devant la Gilera 4 de Serafini deux fois plus puissante. Plusieurs victoires de Lorenzatti, au guidon de la Condor en 1939, à Lausanne et au Milan-Tarante en 1940. C'est une machine très prisée par les collectionneurs, d'autant que seuls 69 exemplaires ont été construits entre 1938 et 1940.

The Condor was victorious from its first production class race, at the Lario circuit.

Nello Pagani repeated this victory the following year, but in racing class, beating Serafini on the Gilera Four which had twice the horsepower. There were several victories with Lorenzatti in the saddle in 1939, and at Lausanne and Milan-Taranto in 1940. It is a machine much sought after by collectors, particularly as only 69 machines were constructed in the years 1938, 1939 and 1940.
