It’s rare that a company treads the line between ATV and motorcycle so closely that we’re not sure what to classify their creation as. With that being said, check out the Moto Guzzi, a 3 wheel motorcycle built in the early 1960s that looks like a motorcycle and ATV in one.
The vehicle was designed for the Italian Army, and it uses a full-time 3WD and a six-speed transmission. In Italy, it’s called the Autoveicolo Da Montagna, which translate to “mountain car.” The idea behind it was to build a vehicle that could eliminate the need to feed the mules that were used before it. It used a chain-driven front wheel and rear caterpillars that could be adjusted to the terrain. Crafting a vehicle that could carry enough weight—it carries 1,100 pounds—while still being able to traverse steep mountain roads was a tough feat to accomplish, but this mechanical mule did the trick.
