The Piega 1000 is a true work of Italian craftsmanship. Hand-built using the Honda SP1 V-Twin, liquid cooled 999cc V-twin engine, this is exotica with real racing history and fantastic looks.
Whilst not as famous as MV & Benelli, Mondial is no light-weight in racing history. The Bologna based minnow won a string of road-racing world championships in the 1950s and showed Honda the way round when the latter first entered Gp racing. Ordinarily Honda wouldn’t bother with such requests to supply engines to boutique builders, but almost 50 years ago Mondial had given one of its all-conquering race bikes to Honda, when the ambitious Japanese firm was starting out in Grand Prix racing. 50 years on Honda wanted to repay the favour, which is how the Piega came into reality.
Superb handling, stability and precise steering are features that Mondial has conferred on its Piega. Using a tubular trellis frame in chromium-molydenum - vanadium steel supplies excellent lightness, strength, and resistance to torsional flex. Excellent steering geometry combined with distinctly racing suspensions, the engine's fulcrum is on the frame resulting in a weight distribution of 52% to the front. Together with an Öhlins superbike-style steering damper, the Piega literally falls into corners.
The heart of the Piega is its water-cooled, 4-V twin-cylinder power unit delivering 140 hp at 9800 rpm, and 10.2 kgm torque at 8800 rpm. Body parts are manufactured by Carbon Dream and most items are constructed of special materials, particularly autoclaved carbon. The Piega is as good as it looks, combining the Honda’s fiery performance enhanced by Mondial Moto refinement of the ECU.
This particular example is showroom new, 0 kilometres on the clock! Obviously a one owner and with frame number 118, one of the last produced. New these bikes sold for 30,000 Euro!
