Remembering the 125 class: Gramigni’s 1992 title

Remembering the 125 class: Gramigni’s 1992 title

motogp.com recalls the most memorable and exciting races of the last 20 years in the historical 125cc category.

62 years after its first appearance in the World Championship, the 125cc category completed its term in 2011 with a final race in Valencia, as the category makes way for a new class of Moto3 race machines in 2012. From Nello Pagani, winner of the first 125cc title, to Nicolás Terol, the recipient of the last ever 125 crown, the class has experienced over 60 dramatic and exciting years of racing.

motogp.com pays tribute to this historical category with the most memorable moments of each season over the last 20 years. Don’t miss out on our review of the greatest 125cc battles, the traditional breeding ground of future champions in the World Championship arena.

We start the 1992 season with an "Italian affair" comprised of four compatriot rivals in the top five. Alessandro Gramigni claimed the World Champion title aboard an Aprilia despite winning only two races all season, with Fausto Gresini claiming the runner up status.

The race of choice is the final round of 1992 in Kyalami, South Africa. Gramigni only needed to finish third behind the Spaniards Jorge Martínez and Carlos Giró Jr. to be crowned 125 champion.
