Moto Guzzi’s Galletto offered the superior handling qualities of a true motorcycle. For the engine Guzzi kept with tradition, specifying an overhead-valve, air-cooled ‘flat single’ with outside flywheel. The frame consisted of a tubular steel spine combined with sheet metal pressings, a leading-link front fork and single-sided rear swinging-arm. Launched in March 1950 in 160cc/three-speed form, the Galletto was upgraded to 175cc and four speeds in 1952 and then to 192cc in 1954.
The Galletto on sale today was restored in the 2007 and has since remained in a private Italian collection. Alongside the Vespa and the Lambretta , the Galletto is one of the most iconic Italian Classic Scooter, arguably this example is the best on the market today. Ready for summer fun.
