Montesa, founded in 1945, is the brand with longest history of motors in Spain and one of the longest-running in the world. To celebrate this event, Montesa is surprising us once again with a new and unprecedented exhibition that has little or nothing to do with the recently closed "Montesa, the forging of a legend" which was housed in the Palau Robert in Barcelona.
In the exhibition "Montesa, 75 years of an unforgettable adventure" the visitors will be able to enjoy authentic collector's pieces, many of them never seen before, grouped by categories: touring, motocross, trial, enduro, competition,...
Among all the exclusive and important motorcycles that fans will encounter in the exhibition is a unique display of competition machines, including three Sprint models (1954, Leif Smedh; 1956, J. R. Eizaguirre; and 1958, R. Quinanilla), two models that participated in the Isle of Man TT (including the XLE-51, which managed to reach 135 km/h.), the first Montesa to participate in the ISDT (the D-51 Varesse), the 250 twin with a rotary valve engine (1966), the popularly known as "Uruguay" (1959) or a water-cooled Brio (1957).
On the other hand, the exhibition also includes some never seen before prototypes, such as the scooter Fura (1958), a concept of innovation advanced for its time, as well as unreleased engine units, bicycles, and other products. Obviously, during the exhibition, fans will also be able to enjoy the most emblematic models of the brand, such as the Impala, the Brio, or the Cota.
The exhibition "Montesa, 75 years of an unforgettable adventure" is now open to the public until April 11, 2021.
