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.
This bike was customized in the 80s to compete in vintage club racing, and it includes a Sport model engine, Polini race kit, 28mm Dell’orto carb, custom tank/seat, and more. This is for competition only, it’s not street legal and doesn’t have a title.
