Moto Guzzi Furghino

Compared to the Dingotre, the Furghino that replaced it in 1968 featured final drive by shaft, giving increased rider saftey and lower maintenance costs. The engine, which was derived from the three-speed Dingo 50 with fan cooling - was mounted below the driver's seat and arranged transversely so that the transmission shaft remained in axis with the gear train.

The Moto Guzzi Furghino, in production from 1968 to 1971, was offered initally without doors and was very affordable.

The N version had doors as an option. Production ceased in 1971, largely due to slow sales.
