Above on the page there are several PDF Manuals for MONTESA Motorcycles.
In 1944, entrepreneur Pedro Permagnier and designer Francis Xavier Bulto jointly organize a motorcycle company and call it Montesa, and in the summer of next year, their firstborn, Montesa A45, was born, which, to be honest, reminded in detail of the French Motobecane B1 V2 GR38 of the 1938 model.
During the first year, 21 motorcycles came out of the gates of the plant, and a copy numbered MB-0001 worth 8,500 pesetas was purchased by Permanier himself.
The device was equipped with a 2-stroke with a working volume of 98 cm³ and a power of 3.2 hp.
The maximum speed of a motorcycle weighing 58 kg is 65 km / h.
In 1953, Montesa launched the Brio 90 model with a 125 cc, which they themselves positioned as a tourist. However, this does not prevent them from showing up with her in the prestigious motorcycle trophy in Monaco a year later and winning there.
At the same time, the Spaniards put on the market a simplified utilitarian version of the Brio 80, which differed in wheels of a smaller diameter and more developed fenders.
The first modernization took place in 1957: for the sake of greater smoothness, the mass of the flywheel was increased and the exhaust system was changed, which entailed the renaming into Brio 81.
The Brio line in different versions will last until 1971 - and during this time 56,119 pieces will be produced.
In the period from 1955 to 1973, only 499 motorcycles were produced under this brand.
At first, the first series was equipped with its own unlicensed copies of the 125cc 2-stroke DKW.
Montesa Motorcycles is a part of Honda Motorcycles.
