Motocross rider Andrea Mosconi built his own Eurocross 125 motorcycles using Aermacchi Harley-Davidson two-stroke engines.

In 1973 he founded the Hiro s.a.s. based in Origgio (Varese) which built engines used by other motorcycle marques.

Two-stroke engines of 175, 250 and 350 cc were constructed, and in the nineteen eighties produced 125 and 250 cc powerplants for motocross, enduro and road use, and a 320cc trials engine which powered the six-speed Sammy Miller developed by Tau.

The engines were sold to a variety of other manufacturers including Acrosssato, Ancillotti, Aprilia, Barbiero, Cagiva, GKD, Maltry, MAV, Trans AMA (Tau) and TGM.

Hiro also built a sport aviation engine of 23hp

Production ceased in 1986.
