The story, the bikes, the Drivers

the fans from all over the world

RUMI owes its success to Donnino Rumi, an artist before being an entrepreneur. His was the idea of producing lightbikes in 1948 and his were the drawings of all the motorcycles to which he dedicated the passion of the painter and the sculptor he really was.

The engine, the legendary two-cylinder 2-stroke horizontal engine of 125 cm3, is an invention by Pietro Dossena, great inventor and RUMI’s first engine designer. The engine will be the basis of all the production of RUMI twin cylinders from 1949 to 1962

The most modern and complete equipment of the RUMI complex has contributed to the creation of the original RUMI motorcycle creatures. The impressive equipment available to the technicians and the direct and constant collaboration between them and the various production departments have allowed the achievement of the most perfect results in the creation of products that have satisfied the multiple needs of the Italian and foreign popular motorization.

Starting from the Turismo up to the Gentleman, many have been the models that have conquered for their shapes and the unmistakable “sound” of their engine.

The shapes designed by Donnino Rumi and modeled by him by hand with clay become one of the peculiar characteristics of RUMI.

Many are the pilots to whom RUMI owes its successes.

Thanks to all of them for bringing RUMI to the top positions and giving RUMI ever greater prestige.

Sport RUMI engineering

Donnino’s son, Stefano has always had RUMI in his blood. Expert in engines, enthusiastic and enterprising, he has created two RUMI masterpieces, completely designed and built in-house, re-proposing with strength and determination the innovative spirit and the pursuit of excellence that characterized the original RUMI.

First the 125, two-stroke, which took part in the Italian and European championship between 2009 and 2012 and more recently with a brand new Moto3.

Look at the facebook page, you will find many signs of Stefano’s genius and skill.
