A street bike this time

Trivias don't last that long lately
Even the hard ones last a day or two, I hope this one will make it through the weekend
It's hard enough even for Andy
It's an Italian 125 which was the fastest production bike in it's category.
What is it?

No titomike, sorry. It's not a Benelli and it's a little before 1980.
Like I mentioned, I hope this one can make it through the weekend. This firm is not as widely known as Benelli.

No, not a Fantic either.
Sorry.

It had a top speed of over 140 km/h, and that was before 1980!

Not Morbidelli either.
I checked this MBA-Morbidelli 125 Gp 1978, and it's a 2 cylinder GP bike producing 40 HP!

The bike we re looking at is a production bike, but this firm was never big in numbers.
If you owned this bike then, you could beat almost all the 250s!
This is the sport version. There was also a simpler 'roadster' version and a 'racing' one.
I could show you some more pictures if you like

This picture shows the simple (called just 'sport' ) version of the same bike.
I hope it's helpful in your search
I will be off to the airport soon.
I'll be back Monday morning, anxious to see if anyone found this

One thing, Andy and Aris,


If this bike is totally stock, then it has some connection with the Morbidelli's. Every Morbidelli bike I came accross had those EXACT wheels on it. I didn't see those wheels on any other bike, including the ones you posted Andy. I think we may need more help here, Aris.
