An odd displacement for a light utility vehicle. However, it is the engine that allows this motorcycle to be the cheapest in the range: the 83cc displacement is the best compromise for two passengers and fuel efficiency.

The performance is average, but at the end of the 50’s, customers looked for simple and reliable vehicles, that would be capable of maintaining those characteristics in time.
The colour was black with an ivory tank and a red highlight.
