The Benelli Leoncino, or the “Little Lion”, is a beautiful tiny two-stroke with one of the more interesting visual cues to grace a motrcycle – a lion on the front fender.

The Leoncino was available as a 98cc or a 125cc engine – today’s bike is the latter. Cheap post-war transport was in high demand in Italy, so bikes like this sold very well.
