Gilera show off Corsa Version of GP 850 at Eicma 2008

Gilera at the Eicma Show in Milan put it best sporting foot forward by introducing the GP 850 Corsa concept.

Sharing a few components from sister sportsbike manufacturers like Aprilia the GP 850 celebrates Gilera's 100 years of racing history.

And it sure does do it in style with front upside down forks and radial caliper brake whilst finishing it off at the rear is an ohlins race ready shock.

Colour wise Gilera have stuck with the "100 Year" theme with a splashing of carbon fibre and gold painted wheels. A Ram-Air style nose cone and twin up-swept straight though pipes scream track use only. 

Up the front end in the cockpit we have a digital race dash and a "Push Button Start" feature.

All to attract attention and interest in a "Race It" culture country such as Italy, Gilera's interpretation of a track scooter has to be on the money.
