Winha Motorcycles

Manufactured by Wihurin Yritykset of Teijo, near Salo, 1976-1977

The Winha was built in two versions, enduro and military. Powered by a 340cc vertical twin two-stroke supplied by Kohler of Wisconsin, they had automatic transmission with pull-start, Girling and Marzocchi suspension, and KTM wheels.

The civilian version was painted green and yellow. They were quite inexpensive as the motorcycles qualified for a tax exemption due to power take-off used for agricultural purposes.

Around 70 or 80 machines were built, 20 of which were sold to the civilian market.

The firm also built snowmobiles using the same engine.
