Our Airone 250 was from 1955. It was in good condition, but not a perfect restoration. The Airone has a horizontal single cylinder, four stroke 247cc engine. The transmission was a four-speed chain drive. The external flywheel was a feature of all the Guzzi models. It's maximum speed was around 60 mph. The name Airone in Italian means Heron. Many of the Guzzi bikes were named after birds, i.e., Falcone for falcon and Galetto for rooster (the Galetto is a scooter).
