Fowlers add Moto Guzzi

Italian marque join the offering at Fowlers for the first time in 85 years

MOTO GUZZI and Aprilia motorcycles will go on sale at Fowlers for the first time in over 85 years.

Fowlers motorcycles opened their doors in 1926, just five years after Moto Guzzi produced its first bikes in a factory close to Lake Garda, but this will be the first time that the two companies have worked together in 85 years.  

In addition to Moto Guzzi, Fowlers are also adding Aprilia motorcycles and scooters to the range on offer in their 40,000 square foot showroom close to Temple Meads railway station.

This brings the total number of franchises held by the West Country dealership to eleven, including Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Triumph, KTM, Piaggio, Vespa, Gilera and Derbi.  

Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, models such as the V7 and California draw on Moto Guzzi's heritage, while Aprilia offers many machines featuring race-bred technology, such as the RSV4 superbike and eagerly anticipated RS4 125cc learner legal machine.  

Bristol has a long history with Italian motorcycles, as Vespa scooters were made under licence at the Douglas factory in the Kingswood suburb from 1951-65.
