Motorhispania Motorcycles

Motorhispania Logo

The firm evolved from Moto Guzzi Hispania which was founded by Oscar Rava in Barcelona. A former director of Fiat, he had fled Italy during the fascist era, fearing for his life as he was of Jewish descent.

The company thrived for many years in Spain, becoming a market leader. After ceasing the relationship with the Moto Guzzi company in 1979 the firm was renamed to Motorhispania and began building lightweight motorcycles using Minarelli engines.

In 1988 Motorhispania changed hands. Eusebio Gallego purchased the company and it continued to prosper, with over 100 employees producing some 16,000 motorcycles annually. The great majority of these were exported, making the firm a valuable asset for the country.

After the bankster fraud caused the GFC of 2008, exports plummetted and the company fell on hard times. They closed in 2014, and the name and assets were bought by Jovicelect SL of Seville who sold Chinese-built Zongshen motorcycles branded as Motorhispania.

Dear all,
I need the rear wheel shaft bearings of a motohispania mh 125 LC ranger 2015 model. The chassis number is LZSJDJLK6F5200077 and the part number is 6261112000116. Could you please let me know if you have in stock and if so, if it is possible to ship to me in Malta. I willtobviosly pay for the shipping costs. If you do not have, could you kindly let me know the dimensions of the bearings as the agent here in Malta does not have in stock and does not know . Maybe I can find some aftermarket parts.
Please reply at your earliest
Kind regards
Norman Brown The bearing will have a number on it. Quote that number to any automotive parts supplier. Ed.

Furia or RX50
I have recently purchased the above model of bike for my Son and although the log book states MOTOR HISPANIA MH6V-X FURIA, all the pictures of the bike appear very similar to RX50. As I am trying to insure the bike, I'm unsure whether I should be insuring an RX50 or a Furia. Can anyone advise please.
The model of bike according to the Log Book is MOTOR HISPANIA MH6V-X FURIA 49cc and it's a 2002 model. First date of registration 12 April 2002 with six gears and electric start. I have attached a photo of how it looked prior to the change of fairings etc.

Nye Rx 50 er den råeste sykkelen i klassen. I stadig hardere konkurranse øker Motorhispania avstanden til konkurrentene. Rx plasserer Motorhispania der de hører hjemme: På toppen!

Rx 50 kombinerer alt en 16-åring kan ønske: En ekstraordinær kraftpakke av en motor; Et revolusjonerende chassis og avansert aerodynamik. Chassiset er utviklet for topp stabilitet og best mulig kjøreegenskaper, samtidig som vekten skal være minimal.

Motorhispania Rx 50 har alt supesportentusiaster har ventet på! Den har mer krefter, fantastiske kjøreegenskaper og veier lite. Og hvis du trodde Rx 50 kun er laget for fart, tar du feil. Du vil bli overrasket over hvor god kjørekomforten er, selv ved lange turer.

Rx 50 gir deg utfordrende superbike Racing-teknologi i en sykkel som er ment for gatekjøring. Den samme teknologien som vinner løp etter løp på banen, kan du nyte på veien. med et rått utseende og ekstremt gode kjøreegenskaper er den blitt utrolig populær som gateracer.

Denne mopeden er utviklet både for stabilitet og de best mulige kjøreegenskaper. Den er svært lettkjørt og liker seg like godt på svingete småveier som på lengre strekninger.

The Motorhispania Furia bike pictured is a 50cc machine. I am 16 and have owned one for several weeks. You can do a lot to them in the way of engine modifications. My one does up to 65mph. Motorhispania is a Spanish company and they are the only people who make the bikes. As it is an import bike, parts are difficult to find but E.C Bates in dartford are very helpful and can order any necessary parts. You can find them in the Yellow Pages. Please E-mail me if you can give me any information on the bike. -- Andrew Lyne -- ANDREW at

I'm a proud owner of a Mh Furia :-)
I live in Sweden and bought mine six months ago here are some spec.

It has a Minarelli 1,6kW engine (2,3 horses)
Cylinder Size 49,8 cc
Compression 10, 5:1
Its liquid cooled and has a pump and is thermostat controlled
It has a cross transmission with 6 gears
It has a multidisc clutch, in oil
It has Helicoil gear in a oilbath
The carburettor is a Dellhorto SHA 14-12
Exhaust pipe is in steel with a expansion chamber
It has a 12volts electric system (no battery just a generator)
I has a steelframe (robot welded)
It has a upside down front suspension (31 mm) (SHOWA)
And a monoshock int the rear (SHOWA)
It has a 21 inch front wheel and a 18 inch rearwheel (offroad version)
It has aluminum rims
It has a 220mm disc brake in the front and a 180mm disc brake in the rear
It has a fuel capacity of 6 liters
It weighs about 85 kilos
Its 2 meters long, 1,3 meters high and 0,7 meters wide

The road version (the one one the picture on your homepage) sucks compared to the cross version. There is just one problem the rear gear is far to LARGE it makes the first gear virtually useless. With one that's half the size of the original one the moped goes around 120 km/h. That about it, hope its to some kind of use for you.

Guten Tag,
ich hab mir kurzem eine Motorhispania-Furia 50ccm (Fun-Bike Ausstattung) gekauft. jedoch ist der vordere Kotflügel oben am Federbein angebracht und es ist ein großer vom Motocross. Ich hätte gerne einen kleinen der direkt über dem Reifen angebracht ist, wie bei der Husquarna, und er sollte glatt bzw. abgerundet sein nicht wie der andere mit kannten. In Wuppertal (Germany) gibt es nichts weil es die Marke Motorhispania erst seit 1 Monat gibt. Vielleicht können Sie mir einen Katalog aus Spanien mit allen Zusatz- und Ersatzteilen die es

für Motorhispania-Furia gibt oder ähnliches zuschicken.

Über eine Zusage etc. und Diskrete Behandlung meiner Daten würde ich mich sehr Freuen.

Mit Freundlichen Grüßen

From Sheldon: I didn't do well at translating this one, so I tried AltaVista Babel Fish. This is what I got:
Good day,
I have yourself short a Motorhispania Furia 50ccm (Fun Bike configuration) bought however is the front fender at the shock strut attached above and it is larger from the Motocross. I would have gladly one small directly over the tire attached am, as with the Husquarna, and he should not be smooth or rounded off like the other one with knew. In Wuppertal (Germany) there is nothing because it the label Motorhispania only for 1 month gives. Perhaps you know me a catalog from Spain with all addition and spare parts the esfuer Motorhispania Furia give or something similar to dispatch. Over a promise etc. and discrete handling of my data I became much being pleased. Yours sincerely Thomas prince at the hedge thorn 49 42279 Wuppertal

I got into your page and read that you needed some info content ... well ill tell you what I know about Furia and I'll hope that you might be able to help me out with a question I have. I bought a Furia at 15 December 99. I got recently stolen by some idiots I guess so I will force the insurance company to give me a new one. Anyways I thought that the Furia was a really vast moped damnit! The acceleration was really great! Now when the Furias get into Sweden they're not allowed to go this fast, who cares right? well so I told the shop dealer dudes I wanted it to go as fast as it could ever go! so they promised me at least 120km/h!

Then when i had followed all their instructions by "Drive the engine in" or what to call it ... I could only get it to go in 80km/h. C'mon my pals Gilera RK50 (old version) raced me out both in top speed and acceleration .... so I was kinda sad about that but when driving it in the forest lane and in muddy stuffy places and so it was terrific. It's really high but you get used to it, kinda hard saddle but you get used to that too. Its great that its allowed to take a passenger on here in Sweden with like two extra foot sticks back and so. I just love that kawa puke green color too! But to tell you I was really really disappointed that it only did 80km/h ....

Now to my question:
Do you know any Furia that does 120km/h when its original so to say, maybe some fixed stuff, I mean with an original 50cc cylinder?

Thanks, hope the info will do!
