The Turismo Rapido series opened a new generation of 125cc 4 stroke engines, considered more interesting and with better performance than 2 strokes.
The TR was offered in several variants, one of which was the Sport that differed in the lowered position of the handlebar.
The engine was slightly more powerful (8 instead of 6.5hp). The colour was red.
