This is a scale model kit to be assembled by an adult; it includes all the parts as indicated, but it does not include glue or paints.
Another spectacular model full of details made of high quality resin by Brach Models. The model reproduces the motorcycle used in 1968 by Battisti, and which is currently in perfect condition. In fact, Zanzani is still active today, and among the products in its catalog are perfect replicas of this same model. How about first at 1/12, and then at 1/1?

MotoBi was born in 1948 after a family disagreement between the Benelli brothers, Giuseppe Benelli deciding to go his own way. We had to wait until 1962 to reunite the family, when Motobi was acquired by the Benelli company, giving birth to the Gruppo Benelli-Motobi, MotoBi models began to be exported from then on to the United States with the Benelli models.
The Motobi 250 6 tie rods was probably the maximum evolution of the famous "egg" engine of the Benelli brand designed by the engineer Piero Prampolini, and of which only 15 units were manufactured between 1966 and 1972. The nickname of 6 tie rods comes from of the characteristic 6 engine tie rods, 3 for each crankcase half.
In the 1966 model, a power of 33 CV at 10,500 rpm was declared.
With the advent of the 250 6 tie rods, Zanzani not only upgraded the glorious old 175cc or 250cc engines with 4 speed gears, but you could say they made a truly new engine. In fact, in the old 250 engines, the increase in diameter caused the displacement of the 4 tie rods, which caused the problem of poor sealing of the head gasket, since the compression ratio had also increased at the same time. After many headaches, the solution was to increase the number of tie rods from 4 to 6. In this way the famous motor was born that took the nickname of "6 tie rods". What was not done was to take advantage of the old crankcases, opting to make a completely new crankcase. The cylinder and head also had larger cooling fins, and inside the camshaft, the timing bushing and a new removable shaft were redesigned, a robust connecting rod with roller bearings was mounted both in the head and in the foot, and the compression ratio increased to 11.5: 1. In short, a completely different engine from the starting one.
