Moto Villa was founded by Francesco Villa in 1961 after his long and successful career at Ducati as both racer and mechanic. He first entered into a partnership with Mondial in ’61, resurrecting their old GP bikes, then designed new two-stroke race bikes that carried the Mondial name.
Together with his brother Walter (four time World Champion for HD-Aermacchi in the 250 and 350 classes) they introduced their own range of bikes, all using advanced two-stroke designs.
While most were race bikes they did produce some road bike models, one of which was this 125cc Seebring.
Originally introduced in 1982, this particular bike is a 1987 model and was supplied for testing for Austrian homologation. It has only 191km on the clock.

The bike is a part of the Peterborough Motorcycle Museum, SA.
