Hornet Motorcycles > Vehicles > Ancillotti

Originally founded in Florence at the beginning of the 20th century by Ernesto Ancillotti, the company began focusing on motorcycles shortly after the end of the Second World War. Ernesto’s son, Gualtiero along with his grandsons, Alberto and Piero, were keen to create off road racing machines of the highest calibre. And so the Scarab came to be … wooing some of the greatest Italian motocross and enduro riders in history. By 1971 Ancillotti secured the first three places in the Italian Championships. By the end of the 70s the company were manufacturing 3,000 motorcycles per year but sadly fell into sharp decline in the mid 80s due to Japanese competitors and a waning interest in motocross and enduro. Ancillotti diversified into bicycle production – which exists to critical & customer acclaim to this day.
