1984 Benelli S125 Motor Scooter
Frame no. ME 10225
Engine no. 1035
Now Chinese owned, although still based in its home town of Pesaro, Benelli is best known for its Grand Prix successes of the 1950s/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 S125 motor scooter offered here. Many Italian motorcycle manufacturers tried climbing aboard the scooter bandwagon in the years immediately following WW2, sometimes with peculiar motorcycle/scooter hybrids, but none was a successful as either Vespa or Lambretta. The 125cc machine offered here dates from the period that Benelli was owned by Alejandro de Tomaso. The S125 weighs 90kg (198lb) and has a top speed of around 60mph. Purchased in its present condition, this example displays a total of only 4,346km (2,700 miles) on the odometer and is believed un-restored. There are no documents with this Lot.
