Morini Franco Motori
Morini Franco Motori S.p.A is a company based in Bolgna, Italy that designs and manufactures small engines for scooters, light motorcycles and mopeds.
Established in 1954 by Franco Morini, the company was the result of a split in the business partnership between Morini, and Vittorio Minarelli. Vittorio Minarelli and Franco Morini set up a factory together in 1950 called "FBM (Fabricca Bolognese Motocicli SrL)" to produce motorcycle and moped engines. They then parted ways and each founded their own engine production companies; Vittorio Minarelli formed "Minarelli" and Franco Morini formed "Morini Franco Motori".
Currently, Morini Franco Motori produces 50cc air- and liquid-cooled two-stroke engines, 125cc air-cooled four-stroke engines, and 400cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engines.
