Gilera GP850 Corsa shown at the EICMA


The Gilera GP850 Corse. Cool!

Starting with the Gilera GP800, already one of the funkiest, fastest scooters around, the Piaggio Group added more style, Öhlins fork and Serie Oro Brembo brakes with radial-mount four-piston callipers, to create the Gilera GP850 Corse. With this new, special-edition scooter, Gilera are celebrating 100 years of operations and the 250cc GP racing world championship title won this year by Marco Simoncelli.

The GP850 Corse, which can seat two people (the rear seat cover is removable), has the same asymmetrical swingarm and chassis as that on the basic version, but the plastic bodywork has been redesigned and some carbonfibre bits have been added. A new exhaust system and twin halogen headlamps complete the racy little package.


Also shown at the EICMA were these Gilera Nexus and the Gilera Fuoco 500 scooters...

Now while the GP850 Corsa is very nice, wouldn't it be just brilliant if Gilera could make these supersport 600s? Oberdan Bezzi, we wish your flights of fancy come true...!
