Ercoli & Cavallone Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque


Motorcycles built in 1922 with a two-stroke V-twin 500cc engine.

The cylinders are offset so as to each have their own pre-compression chamber in the crankcase.

This also allows better cooling of the rear cylinder which is almost as exposed to the airstream as the front cyclinder.

Primary and secondary transmission are chain, and it has expanding brakes parallelogram forks. The machine is produced until 1923.
