Moto Guzzi relança la production d'après guerre avec une gamme de types d'avant-guerre modernisés, ce qui, dans le cas de l'Airone 250 cm3 signifia une fourche avant télescopique, des freins de diamètre supérieur et un cylindre et une culasse en aluminium. Ajoutée à la gamme pour 1949, la plus puissante Airone Sport qui offrait une vitesse de pointe de 117 km/h et la faculté de croiser à 95 km/h pendant des heures demeura un best-seller jusque dans les années 1950. Cette Airone Sport fut achetée par le vendeur à la fin des années 1990 et restaurée en 2004. Régulièrement entretenue par les spécialistes Moto Guzzi de la région de Munich alors qu'elle faisait partie de la collection du vendeur, la machine, présentée comme étant en bon état général, est offerte avec les photos du jour de sa découverte, ses papiers d'immatriculation allemands et son contrôle technique du TüV.

    Moto Guzzi recommenced production post-war with range of updated pre-war designs, which in the case of the 250cc Airone (heron) meant it gained a telescopic front fork, larger diameter brakes and an aluminium-alloy cylinder barrel and 'head. Added to the range for 1949, the more powerful Airone Sport offered a 117km/h top speed and the ability to cruise at 95km/h-plus all day, and remained a top-seller well into the 1950s. This Airone Sport was purchased by the vendor in the late 1990s and restored in 2004. Serviced regularly by Moto Guzzi specialists in the Munich area while in the owner's private collection, the machine is described as in generally good condition and offered with German registration papers and TüV.
