This 1955 Maserati 125 Turismo Veloce is a very rare model of Maserati’s 125cc two-stroke single-cylinder motorcycle.
The TV was the sporting version of the 4. 8hp 125 Turismo Lusso and as well as benefiting from a 6hp engine, it gained a forth gear within the standard sized transmission case. As the standard case was designed to hold three gears, in order to fit a forth gear the gears were made thinner, which due to their fragility often caused them to fail. When the even more sporty 7. 2hp GT Super model was launched in 1957 it had wider engine cases to accommodate a more durable four speed gear set.
I acquired this beautiful machine in early 2019 from a classic motorcycle specialist in Italy and brought it to England. It is NOVA registered but does not have any UK or Italian registration documents as it is thought to have been in storage in Italy for many years prior to being restored (vehicles in Italy that are no longer in use are de-registered to save licence costs and the documents are often then lost).
I believe this TV was restored in around 2017 in Italy and has been in storage at the restorers premises since. During the restoration it was found that the fragile TV gears were damaged so a stronger and more reliable three speed gear set from a Turismo Lusso was installed.
With the exception of a couple very minor chips in the paintwork from storage, this Maserati is in excellent restored condition. The engine starts easily and runs well but would possibly benefit from a carburettor tune to improve it further, and it rides well with the three gears selecting as they should.
I have experience of sending classic cars and motorcycles to many world-wide destinations (especially America and Canada) and are able to assist with shipping where necessary.
