What an achievement, bravo!

Celebrating the century of motorcycling for the Italian manufacturer, and the landmark is (hopefully) due to be celebrated at the Moto Guzzi World Days event at Mandello del Lario from the 9th to the 12th of September - keeping our fingers crossed that it still goes ahead as planned! 

Two new colourways were announced earlier this year for the Moto Guzzi V7 and Moto Guzzi V85TT, two bikes that are also a key part of the success Moto Guzzi and the Piaggio Group are experiencing in recent years. 

Bravo, 100 years of Moto Guzzi!

Piaggio Group Chairman and CEO Roberto Colaninno said: 

“The Moto Guzzi centenary is a proud moment both for the Piaggio Group, which was joined by the Eagle brand in 2004, and for Italian industry as a whole, not just the motorcycling sector. A capacity for innovation, boldness in moving ahead of the times, a competitive spirit, love for the product and meticulous attention to production quality are the skills that over the years Moto Guzzi has combined with its unique relationship with the local community. 

"Ever since 1921, every Moto Guzzi bike that has gone out into the world has been built at the Mandello factory, the place where the company was set up exactly one hundred years ago. All this will continue through its second century of history. Moto Guzzi is an example of all-Italian excellence.

“It has gone down in our country’s history without ever losing its youthful spirit and continues to inspire genuine passion among thousands of Guzzi bikers all over the world.”

“Moto Guzzi celebrates a century of motorcycling history.
Forever faithful to its values, timeless and always fashionable,
it represents an authentic passion for motorcycles.
Being a Guzzista isn’t about the bike you choose, it’s about who you are”

I think that’s something we can all get behind.
