1980 - 1982
The founding of Sanvenero occurred in the '80s, in order to prepare two bikes to be deployed in the competition the following season. The 125 Class with a two stoke cylinder and the 500 Class with a four cylinder two stoke, whose engine architecture was strongly inspired by the Γ Suzuki RG 500 engine that won 7 titles in 1976 to 1982.
The debut in Motomondiale took place in the 1981 season , with the French Guy Bertin and Spanish Ricardo Tormo in the class 125 and the Italian Carlo Perugini in the 500 class. Results in the eighth-liter, after all, was decent (Bertin winning a Monza and Tormo wining the Anderstorp). The power of the engine and greater capacity, showed obvious limits improvements, precluding the riders scoring in each class.
In the 125 class at Season '82, the riders were Pier Paolo Bianchi and Ricardo Tormo and in the 500 4-cylinder two-stroke engine class, it was Sanvenero that entrusted the Swiss rider Michel Frutschi. Also in 1982, the company managed to win two races, the 125 class in Belgian GP with Tormo and the 500 class in French GP on the Nogaro circuit. The race was boycotted by most riders do to the danger of the track layout.
The projects were just too ambitious and as early as 1982 the Sanvenero operation had to closed.Pier Paolo Bianchi was able to obtain enough to put a bike together and, with a dispute in the 1983 season, ended up giving them an decent placing.
