The Moto Nettunia 160 Sport – With Phil Aynsley
Here is another in the seemingly unending list of obscure Italian motorcycle marques – Moto Nettunia.
The firm Busi started production of scooter frames (to be fitted with various engines) in late 1940s. In 1951 began to manufacture their motorcycles under the Moto Nettunia name (Officine Meccaniche Busi was the actual company name) in both 125 and 160cc capacities – both being two-strokes.
This is a 160 Sport. It was good for 85km/h from its 6.5hp.
While Nettunia never officially raced the bikes were a popular choice for privateers.
The company ceased production in 1964.
One of the reasons I love photographing Italian bikes – the shapes!
