Riders start the bike through direct contact with a discreet and elegant wristband, which negates the need for keys.
The bikes are produced in Barcelona and a limited edition of 175 bikes will be available from April 1 – and, no, this isn’t an early April Fool’s Day joke.
Bultaco began in 1958 when Montessa director Franco Bulto created the company to continue road racing. Their first product was a 125cc Bultaco Tralla 101 road bike, but the company became famous for their two-stroke off-road machines. The company folded in 1983 and in 1998 became involved with Sherco for about three years. It is now owned by American HDW Enterprises, parent company of a parts and repair specialist for old Bultacos.
