Single Cylinder Exotica: 1992 GILERA SATURNO PIUMA CORSA (U.K.)

It looks like Gilera was taking its’ racing version of the Saturno very serious.  It was specifically  created for “Super Mono” racing throughout  Europe.  A simple glance tells you  there isn’t much in common with the Saturno road bike other than the name.  These bikes were bumped up to 569cc’s and apparently some factory supported riders got versions that were 620cc’s.

Time to go racing, so the street bikes trellis style frame had to go.  Instead it has a pretty darn stout looking twin spar unit.

  • It is amazing what you can do with a single cylinder motor . They aren’t so powerful but very torquey ! Still 620cc is a Big single ! I like this bike . I never even knew that they made as exotic a race version of the Saturno as this one . Want !
