OSSA Motorcycles History



In 1960, OSSA created a four-stroke model under licence from Morini: the 175 Gran
Turismo. It had a Morini engine that ENMA (National Aviation Engine
Company, formerly known as Elizalde) was subcontracted to manufacture at
its headquarters in Barcelona where Paseo San Juan meets Calle Riera San
In 1963, Sandro Colombo designed the 160, which gave rise to the 160 T and 160
GT versions. Colombo was a great engineer and a great person, who worked on this
and other projects but did not live to see the famous 160 go into production.
