The Falcone was the last of the classic Guzzi singles with a horizontal four-stroke 500cc engine. The engine first saw the light of day in 1921 with a horizontal single-cylinder pushrod motor, with the ‘classic’ Mandello del Lario bore and stroke measurements of 88x82mm. The frame is a twin-tubed cradle design with telescopic forks and a rear swingarm with a spring under the engine and a pair of friction dampers.
