TEL 125 and 125 Epoca difference...?

So I am searching this Italian site, looking for a tel/ lurking...and find an Epoca. What is the difference between the two?

There was never a bike sold by MV with the name 125 Epoca.
Epoca means in Italian something like vintage, yesteryear, ...

Yes, very much what Ralf said above for all intents & purposes - vintage in the English sense works best as it doesn't translate exactly. Epoca is period & normally they are described as D'epoca which is 'of the period' and refers exclusively to older, cars, bikes, furniture - anything really.
Having had a fair bit too do with seeking and importing bikes for my collection from Italy. ..
You'll usually see 125 - 175 etc d'epoca when the seller knows they are selling an old bike but don't really know what they have. Many of these bikes I now find are sold by the next generation as next of kin & they really know very little about them as they never really had an interest in them in the first place.

If you are interested in classic MVs then you should probably invest in MV Agusta by Mario Colombo & Roberto Patrignani. It is a good general guide to particular models. it is readily available through Amazon and comes in a few languages.
