Hispano Villiers

Huracan
Huracan Motors, SA of Barcelona was established by Duran Valet. The firm produced motorcycles and motocarros from 1955~1965.
These were powered by Hispano Villiers engines of 125cc to 250cc. Some 2000 were built.
The firm also built microcar prototypes in conjunction with Nilo Masó of Alpha but the project did not come to fruition partly because, it is said, of obstruction by the Francoist government and that this was par for the course at the time.

Husor

Félix Huarte formed a partnership with Ricardo Soriano and built a modified version of the Soriano Puma named the Husor at the Imenasa works in Pamplona. Production figures were low, in the vicinity of 30 or 40, built from March 1953 to September 1954. It is believed to be the first Spanish scooter.

Soriano left the motorcycle business in 1954, whilst Huarte went on to create a new scooter named the Iruña 202. Powered by the Hispano Villiers 125, the better part of one thousand of these were produced between 1954 to 1957 - although only 400 were sold.
