Produced from 1946 to 1948 in two series which differ in some improvements, is characterized by the fact that light instead of on the steering wheel was on the front fender. As an option, you could put a speedometer, but unlike other wasps had the handlebar coverings in sheet metal and could therefore be subject to vandalism or theft. Required maintenance, but at that time was designed to survive the long journeys to the possible dangers of the war, like the piercing of a tire. Had no rear suspension, and this function was performed by the springs of the seat.
