Moto Guzzi Ercolino

Manufactured 1956-1970

The 1956 Ercolino was powered by a modified Galletto 192cc engine fitted with fan cooling and a four-speed gearbox with reverse gear.

Wheels were 14 inch front and 15 inch rear, and it could carry 350kg.

The 1958 model was fitted with smaller 10 inch wheels and wider tyres, and electric starting was available as an option as was a low-ratio gear and an increased payload of 590kg.

The Ercolino tray had folding sides, and some versions were fitted with a full cabin similar to that of the Piaggio Ape and others.
