Not to be confused with MV Agusta
1924 - 1933
Augusta (Ditta Blatto & NIRI), based in Turin and founded by Angelo Blatto, introduced their first motorcycle in 1926 (. The bike had a 350cc engine with a single overhead camshaft and three separate speeds. The engine was designed by the famous technician Angelo Blatto. That same year, the company moved from Turin to Bologna and the name became FIAB (Fabbrica Italiana Augusta Bologna). It also produces a motor bike in a 125 and 175 cc version.
In 1927, the same bike came in a touring version, and so began the slogan "Travel by Road, and Race at the Track". At the Salone Show in Milan the same year, they presented a 250 cc Augusta. In 1929, production continued with the 125 and 175 cc models in various versions and added a 175 cc model with a side valve distribution. All models, with few changes, were still listed until 1930. The following year, the last year of the company, the 175 (with two gears) and 350 (with three gears) had the overhead camshaft distribution.
