Athena Sprinter, 94cc Dragster


We thought we would give you a chance to take a look at Athena’s sprint bike “scooter” and let you see what thinking out of the box can lead to. After only 4 months they have beaten some of the strongest competition in Europe with an engine hybrid Moto X meets Auto scooter. Take a look at the carburettor manifold position, hopefully all of this testing leads to some interesting cylinder kits in the future.



The project to create an ATHENA dragster “sprint bike” began a few months ago from an Italian-French team including Athena’s Technical Chief Mr Luigi Vangelista and the French mechanic Mr St├ęphane Fort with the support of Athena’s Mr Matteo Mancassola and Athena French sales representative Mr Jean-Paul Bourdoux.

The Athena cylinder kit fitting Minarelli engines is a prototype based on a KTM 65cc cylinder kit, fully revised in its porting as well as diagrams and of course using special racing parts in order to reach a displacement of 94cc.

• Engine: Minarelli Horizontal engine - long type MBK Ovetto”
• Piston: diameter 50 mm
• Cylindre kit: Athena DRAGSTER Prototype BIG BORE cylinder kit, bore size 50mm
• Displacement: 65cc
• Crankshaft: Athena Prototype crankshaft 48mm stroke
• Rad valves: BOYESEN
• Carburetor: Dell’Orto carburetor VHST 30 MM
• Variator, clutch, transmission and belt are all Athena prototypes
• Rear brake: drum
• Front brake: disc
• Radiator: Fluidyne Radiator
• Current power @ the wheel: 29.5 HP tested on a DYNOJET bench, the target is to go over 30HP
• Total weight: 42 kg




When Athena began its sprinting adventure they promised they were there to win.
And so it is, after only four months from Athena’s first appearance at the 150-meter track they have taken to the highest step of the podium in Salbris where it all began with an excellent third place in July.

The competition, which took place on October 27th and 28th, was particularly intense. Riders were welcomed to the track by a winter’s day with an icy road bed and lashing winds, all of which made it difficult to control the drag bikes road holding on the start. In qualifying Athena demonstrated it was heading for success, reaching the first place with their rider Guillaume. With competition much more challenging than expected changes were made in the team-play, from the rider to all the technical staff and of course things were made a little easier due to the power and reliability of the Athena engine.

So with the final sprint came the victory with the time of 4.8 seconds.
