Bultaco – The legendary Spanish Motorcycle Company.
Renowned for its incredible history and inspirational designs, Bultaco has become one of the most sought after motorcycle brands of all time.
The story begins in Spain 1944 when Pedro Permanyer and Francisco Bulto created the motorcycle brand Montesa. This was a pinnacle moment for the brand as it was introduced during a time when entrepreneurs began to emerge, seeking to break through the political barriers of the state.
Then in 1958, something happened that would change the history of Spanish motorcycling forever. Permanyer and José Luis Milá – Count of Montesa, announced to Bulto that they were to stop sporting activities and spend more time focusing on commercial models. As more motorcycle companies, including great Italian and English brands, were abandoning sporting activities and shifting towards commerciality, Permanyer and Mila argued that in order to maintain their reputation and position within the industry, they must also make amendments. Furthermore, the government of Spain unveiled The National Stabilization Plan in June 1959 which was very restrictive.
Feeling betrayed Bulto came to the conclusion that he would leave Montesa. He felt the decision of abandoning the competition at a time when the brand was doing particularly well in terms of popularity and financial growth, was an attack towards him, believing that they wanted him to leave his leadership role within the company.
Having no interest in continuing working at Montesa, he left the brand with no intention of returning or creating a new business. Yet on May 17 1958, a legend was born. Twelve faithful employees arranged a dinner with Bulto to discuss an exciting new business venture. Already willing to leave Montesa, the employees sat down with Bulto and created the most legendary Spanish Motorcycle Company, Bultaco.
On March 24 1959 Bulto launched his first bike, the road-going 125cc Bultaco Tralla 101.
Bultaco’s notable products include road racing, road, motocross and trial models. The brand has become so iconic that it has launched a variety of commercial merchandise including watches, helmets and clothing.
