ITA­LIAN GILERA BRAND, WHICH HAS BEEN PART OF THE PIAG­GIO GROUP SINCE 1969, MADE AN IMPORTANT ATTEMPT TO CAP­TU­RE THE SMALLENGINE MAR­KET NICHE IN THE EARLY 1990S, COMPETING AGAINST APRILIA AND CAGIVA. CX 125 WAS LAUNCHED DURING THE 1989 MI­LAN MO­TOR SHOW AND THE PRODUCTION BEGAN IN 1991.

If Gilera was trying to im­press peo­ple, it suc­cee­ded. The mo­del was des­cri­bed as a “show bi­ke” by the me­dia be­cau­se it caught all eyes during the event, not only be­cau­se of its per­for­man­ce, but al­so for new aest­he­tic and technological fea­tu­res. It was a dif­fe­rent bi­ke, par­ti­cu­larly at­trac­ti­ve, com­bi­ning the sha­pe of ra­cing bi­kes from the 1950s with up-to-da­te tech­ni­cal elements. Since the la­te 1980s, the Piag­gio Group wor­ked to di­ver­sify its production and Gilera was the brand cho­sen to ma­ke the sports bi­ke, beau­ti­ful and po­wer­ful enough to at­tract youngs­ters. Gilera had al­ready made a sa­tis­fac­tory in­cur­sion in that seg­ment with its 125 KZ mo­del.
