Virtually all of the Japanese manufacturers have ceased production of two stroke motocross bikes, but in Europe there are new signs of life for the all but forgotten two stroke 125.
Entrepreneur Roberto Giliberti breathed new life into the Ancillotti Motor Cycles Factory when he purchased it in 2005. In association with master technician Mario Baglioni, they have shepherded the rebirth of the historic Tuscany Italy brand, with the introduction of the Ancillotti GA125.
The fit and finish of the machine exudes a factory works bike aura. All areas of the machine have been attended to with great detail. The fuel tank is hand-crafted of aluminum, as is the airbox. The detail lavished on small areas really shows. Something as simple as the swingarm bolt screams of world-class craftsmanship, it’s rounded edge, square shape is recessed perfectly into the frame rail.
These details are either overlooked or non-existent on machines spit out of a robotic assembly line.
The frame is built using various diameters and thickness of tubular Cromoly steel, with the double cradle meeting just above the engine to the single downtube. The welding of each joint is impeccable, created by artistic craftsman.
While the engine for the pre-production unit is built with a derivative of the KTM 125, a complete, newly designed engine is being built specifically for this machine by Mario Baglioni.
The GA125 is being tested by Andrea Ballerini throughout the summer of 2009 at the Tuscany Championship of Cross.
Then the bike will be formally announced in November 2009 at Milan and made available during the first quarter of 2010.
