Country of Origin: Italy

That is a Nuovo Falcone Civile (Civilian) which is the same model as mine. They were produced in limited quantities from 1971 to about 1974. I've seen mention made that Guzzi may have continued the white/red version as late as 1976. The red frame/white body was the standard color. In 1974 they made a limited number, only 74, of maroon bikes with different decals and chrome fenders like mine. From '74 to '76 my understanding is that production focussed on the Sahara model, a semi-military version in tan.

The Nuovo Falcone (new falcon) was a redesign of the original with a flat single cylinder 500cc engine. It has a top speed of about 85 mph. It didn't take off like its predecessor, with only 26 HP and 450 pounds, but it was used by every police department in Italy who appreciated its ability to carry extra weight — police gear, luggage, leg shieds, etc. The dark blue paint is the original Carabinieri, Italian Police, color. This one came with the leg shields, which was standard to the model, but they aren't mounted in these pictures. Many of the Guzzi bikes were named after birds, i.e., Falcone for falcon, Airone for Heron and Galetto for rooster.
