1976 - 1978
Elmeca-Gilera was derived from the marque combinding Gilera and Elmec. In 1972, Gilera enters the world of off-road with a 50 cc and a 125 cc two-stroke engine. Despite the many successes, Piaggio blocks the production of a series of new models for the races, in 1974. Meanwhile, in 1973, the marque Elmec was born and the basis for the merger of the two companies were drawn during a meeting between the owners of Martini and engineers of the Elmec of Piaggio.
In 1976 they have sold more than 600 copies of the Regular and Cross. The motorcycles were valued for their engine and chassis by Gilera Elmeca. At the end of 1976, as the renovation of the engines of all other properties, the sales begin to decline and also resulted in sports competitors not being very expected. In 1977, Al Motosalone of Milan, presented a new motorcycle, completely updated with a much improved engine. The engine of the Regular 125 was a single-cylinder two-stroke, air cooled that produced 23.5 hp at 10,000 rpm. The production of the Elmec Cross and Regular 125 cc continued until 1978 when Elmec-Gilera ceased all activities.
