Description

1960 Benelli 125cc Leoncino
Frame no. 21030
Engine no. L35912N

Italy's oldest surviving motorcycle manufacturer, Benelli was founded in 1911 by the six Benelli brothers. A recent re-entrant into the superbike market with its Tornado-derived family of triples, Benelli is best known for its Grand Prix successes in the 1960s when it secured two 250cc World Championships, and also for its outrageous six-cylinder road bikes of the 1970s. The Italian manufacturer has, of course, always produced less exotic fare such as the Leoncino two-stroke lightweight offered here, a model rarely seen outside its home country. Offered from a private collection in Italy, this original Leoncino comes with Italian registration papers and is sold strictly as viewed.
