    It seems that Ferrari did manufacture motorbikes way back when. Any idea why they did so, why they stopped?

    Here's one such Ferrari motorbike in a private Swiss collection that I recently visited.

    This collection also had 2 Maserati bikes, MV's, Moto Guzzi's, Laverda's etc....too cool.

    I have a friend with the same Ferrari bike and there is no connection with Enzo Ferrari, just someone else with the same name. I also have several photos of his bike I took about 15 years ago and will try to find them, scan them and post them later.

    I believe that their is indeed a connection to Enzo Ferrari. But he was not the name-giver to the motor company. For what I know out of my head there was, in the time when Enzo worked with the Scuderia Ferrari with the Alfa's, he was also head of the motor team.

    I'm not sure where I read this...perhaps in Piloti che gente ...I will look it up (hope I don't forget :) ...
