1955 Maserati Tipo 160/T4 Turismo Lusso


Having purchased the Bolognese motorcycle maker Italmoto in 1953, Maserati commenced motorcycle manufacture in Modena under its own name. The first to bear Maserati’s famous Trident badge was a model previously made by Italmoto. Renamed the Tipo 160/T4, it was produced from 1954 to 1958 and its 7.5bhp 4-stroke 158cc single was mated to a 4-speed transmission. It weighed 112kg (dry) and had a top speed of around 65mph.

Maserati went on to make a further dozen or so different models up to 250cc until 1960, but with limited commercial success the company sacrificed its two-wheeler operation to focus on the survival of its car brand.

This 1955 Maserati 160/T4 is in very tidy, usable condition, as evidenced by a video we have of the bike with its motor running sweetly. A charming machine for any admirer of the Maserati marque.
