1969 Moto Guzzi Stornello 125 Sport

Description

Moto-Guzzi 125cc lightweights of the 1960s eschewed the Mandello del Lario firm’s traditional horizontal cylinder layout in favour of inclined 4-stroke singles nestled in a light and nimble chassis, as exemplified by the Stornello.

Introduced in late 1959 as a 1960 model, the 125 Stornello was the first street bike designed by Guzzi’s race bike designer, Giulio Carcano. His design was modern, simple and lightweight and employed a 7hp 125cc OHV engine with 4-speed gearbox that could take it to 62mph.

In late 1961, for the 1962 model year, Guzzi introduced a the Stornello Sport version which had more power – 12hp at 8,000rpm) – a new humped sporst seat, lower bars, alloy rims and a close-on 70mph top speed. The Stornello range was completely revised in 1967, and then again in 1971 with this final 5-speed version staying in production until 1974.

This 1969 Sport version has been sympathetically restored to maintain its originality. Finished in a beautiful silver colour, it is offered in lovely condition with its Italian registration papers.
