Ferrari Motorcycle

I've seen 2 so far but 'Did' Ferrari actually ever commission one. Here's the latest one I've came across. 1953 Fracelli Ferrari 125 2 stroke. It is lovely though.

As far as I know, Ferrari the car company has never built a motorcycle, or commissioned a motorcycle from a motorcycle manufacturer. However, Ferrari is a very common name over there, so seeing the name on the side of something other than a beautiful sports car isn't a complete surprise.

I would agree very much but it does look odd to see the name on a bike.

I thought one of the Italian makes was allowed the Cavallino on it's gas tank for a few years, but then 'asked' to remove it. Can't remember if Ducati or ??

But Ferrari only authorized its name on some scooters and a segway IIRC and did not mfgr any two wheelers.
