F.B Mondial revive past Piega name for futuristic 125 naked roadster
F.B Mondial are reviving the Piega name after 21 years for a minimalist learner-legal streetfighter, complete with winglets and a TFT dash.
The Piega name was previously used in the firm’s 2001 flagship superbike, which used Honda’s V-Twin SP1 engine for power - and will return for 2022.

The new machine has been designed by Rodolfo Frascoli, the man responsible for the looks of bikes including the current Suzuki Katana and features an injected Euro5-compliant 124cc, four valve DOHC single-cylinder engine.
Claimed power is 14.8bhp at 9750rpm - the maximum output for the A1 class - and will be paired with a six-speed gear box. Electronic gizmos also include a TFT dash and ABS.
Holding those near-15 rampant horses on the tarmac are a set of wings, which protrude from below the gilled petrol tank. A complete novelty on a bike of this size, Mondial do claim they do also work as air vents.
Away from the wings, the 135kg Piega also gets non-adjustable gold upside down forks, plus a mono shock, with the rear light and number plate assembly mounted to the swingarm, like a shrunken Ducati Diavel.
There are no UK prices available at this time, however we are told it will be available in three colour options and cost €3990 in Europe. That’s around £3380 to you and me.
