The Racing Bikes, 1991, Haynes Publishing Group,

Running on a 13.1 compression ratio it produced 25 bhp at 11,600 rpm and was capable of 185 km/h (115 mph). Other technical details included 34 mm Bing carburettor, six-speed gearbox, Marzocchi suspension, 170 mm Fontana double-sided 2LS front brake, Motoplat electronic ignition and full cradle duplex frame. A production version was offered for sale to private customers in 1975 and 1976.

In 1975 Gori introduced the 125 cc Sport Valli Replica. This was derived from an earlier Gori racing machine which was extremely successful in hillclimb events. photo & info from:

By 1980 the Gori concern was concentrating practically all its efforts on off-road machinery, either motocross or enduro, using Hiro engines. Typical was the 125 RG. Its impressive specification included: a six-speed gearbox; Sachs Hydracross rear shock absorbers; Dell'Orto PHF30 carburettor with fully sealed air filter; 35 mm competition forks with rubber gaiters; Metzeler tyres; Magura levers; and unbreakable plastic for the mudguards, tank and side panels. All in all, it was a high class off-road racer with lights. photo & info from:
