Introduced at the 1973 Milan Show, the Chott was manufactured 1974 to 1975. The 5 speed 247cc twostroke engine had a bore/stroke of 68 x 68mm, it had dual ignition with a twin-plug head, a Dell'Orto 32mm carburettor, and produced a respectable 26 horsepower. The machine ran Ceriani suspension with forks adustable for rake, it had magnesium crankcases and wheel hubs and ran 300x21 and 400x18 tyres.

The Chott was followed in 1976 by a dedicated off-roader sans instrumentation and lights, the 250 TR2.
