Moto Parilla was founded in Milan in 1946 by Giovanni Parilla. Production ran from 1946 through until 1967 with Parilla making a historic mark on the motorsport scene. The success of his production saw Parilla entering the American racing scene and dominated almost all events of participation.

Born from a bet that the Italian born Giovanni Parrilla could build a better bike than other local offerings of the time, he set out to build his perfect bike. After buying and dismantling a Norton Manx and studying it before reassembling, he used what he learnt getting to work creating a bike that went onto winning a local race. From there his focus was producing competition machines over the following 18 years producing over 150 different models.
