Additional photos of this Cagiva Freccia C9 are available here for your perusal.
Italian for Arrow, “Freccia” is the perfect model name for the Italian firm’s lithe two-stroke sportbike that was designed by the legendary Massimo Tamburini. It was also the predecessor to the fascinating Cagiva Mito.
The diminutive 125cc engine (which was paired with a 7-speed transmission!) was impressively able to put out 27 horsepower, enough for a claimed top speed of 97 miles per hour – a speed normally reserved for engines twice the size.
The styling intentionally aped the full-fairing bodywork of the Paso, which almost completely hid the engine and the chassis.
This example is VIN: ZCGCCXAX2HV005003. This is one of over thirty motorcycles that we will be auctioning off from the Alan Wilzig collection over the next couple of weeks.
Alan has not ridden this bike at all. The odometer shows 6,157 kilometers (3,825) miles.
In preparation for the listing, we detailed the bike and flushed the front brake. Olly did the work, he notes that the rear brake bleeder is broken. Per the video up top, we wanted to show that this bike is a runner but it will need some minor work (hydroflush, new tires, etc) if the next owner would like to ride it.
Super Bike grips, rubber covers on the levers.
