Moto Guzzi Honors Its 100th Anniversary With A Suite Of Special Edition Bikes

First conceived as a wartime fantasy amongst Carlo Guzzi, Giovanni Ravelli, and Giorgio Parodi, Moto Guzzi was officially founded on March 15th, 1921 under a silent partnership known as the Società Anonima Moto Guzzi. Since that time, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer has kept its operations much smaller in scale compared to the rest of the industry, but that’s not to say it’s been any less impactful. On the contrary, with its impressive race pedigree and iconic consumer models, Moto Guzzi continues to stay relevant to this day.

In celebration of its 100th anniversary, Moto Guzzi has announced three limited-edition models — based on the V7, V85TT, and V9 — each done up in a special Centennial livery. Inspired by the colorway featured on the 1955 8-cylinder dustbin race bike, they come with a brushed silver tank, subtle olive green accents, and a handsome brown leather saddle. And in order to make the satin paint scheme really stand out, Moto Guzzi has given each bike a set of fully-blacked-out components and some golden eagle finishing. Add to that some classy commemorative logos and you have a bevy of bikes that make for a fitting 100-year birthday bash. Look for more information starting March 15th.
