**About Moto Guzzi: **
For 90 years, Moto Guzzi has maintained a reputation as one of world's most prominent manufacturers of motorcycles. The company was founded in 1921 on the shores of Lake Como in the village of Mandello del Lario, Italy, where the motorcycles are still manufactured today.

As Europe’s oldest motorcycle manufacturer, Moto Guzzi has notched up no fewer than 3,300 racing wins including 14 world GP titles, 22 world records and 11 Isle of Man Tourist Trophy wins in the course of its long history.

Moto Guzzi established its tradition of unique technical solutions and bold styling early in its history with innovations such as the swing arm suspension in 1928, the V8 race bike in 1955, and the unmistakable 90-degree V-Twin, a legend the moment it was introduced in 1967.

Moto Guzzi will continue to be the classic Italian motorcycle with superior quality and design.
