Moto Guzzi Celebrates A Century
The Italian brand is marking the occasion with a range of limited-edition motorcycles.
The famed Italian motorcycle manufacture Moto Guzzi is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a slew of new, limited-edition bikes inspired by the Otto Cilindri.
Originally introduced in 1955, the Otto Cilindri pushed the limits of motorcycle performance to new, unseen levels. Guzzi’s 500cc V8’s would go on to win nine world titles from 1953 to 1957 split across rider and manufacturer.
Here, the 100th-anniversary line intends to celebrate that racing heritage by reinterpreting the design elements of the ‘50s into its new models like the V7 Stone, V9 and V85TT Adventure.
These bikes feature matte finish fuel tank with a gold Moto Guzzi eagle and licks of green – which was the first colour adorned by a Moto Guzzi and is the most iconic of the Eagle’s colours – which complement the brown leather saddle.
The bikes are expected to arrive in Australia around the middle of 2021 with pricing yet to be set.
