Moto Guzzi celebrates its 100th anniversary in December
Motociclo and Moto Guzzi Owners NSW team up to celebrate December 5
Moto Guzzi’s 100th anniversary celebration arrives in Sydney, as Motociclo and the Moto Guzzi Owners Association of NSW team up for a day in honor of the iconic brand.
Sunday 5th December is the date set and will start with an informal meeting and bicycle exhibition at “Harrys CafÃ© De Wheels” – Tempe, starting at 8:30 am. From there, a social group will travel down the coast (through the Natio) to the Headlands Austinmer Hotel, for an early lunch and more bike poses.
The riders can then return home at their leisure. The event currently has the green light pending possible complications related to Covid, but with so many events postponed to 2022, it will be a very special event for Moto Guzzi.
It’s a big year for the brand, or ‘Buon Compleanno’ (Happy Birthday) for Moto Guzzi, which celebrates 100 years since its inception in 1921 in Mandello Del Lario, Italy. The oldest motorcycle company in Europe, its origins were born from the dreams of three Italian WWI fighter pilots – and the legend still lives on.
With a long history, this authentic brand celebrates this momentous achievement, which includes the current continuous releases of new models that remain true to the history and origins of the manufacturer.
In 1921, Giorgio Parodi founded Moto Guzzi with the mechanic Carlo Guzzi. The company’s goal was to design innovative motorcycles at the Mandello del Lario headquarters on Lake Como, where the factory still stands today.
Moto Guzzi a brand which, a hundred years after its beginnings, continues to embody the values ââof its far-sighted founders. Since 1921, every Moto Guzzi motorcycle that has been used on the roads of the world has been assembled by hand, with love, in the factory in Mandello del Lario.
The Moto Guzzi century is a moment of great pride for the whole Italian industry and the celebration marks a history that has always been lived by looking to the future, with a capacity for innovation while remaining faithful to the talents and traditions of the company.
Moto Guzzi has also won triumphs on all world circuits, winning 14 world championship titles.
It was the motorcycle of speed records, the symbol of the growth of an entire nation, the motorcycle of the Italian police and army, a vocation that she extended to the international scene by equipping the California police and, more recently, police forces in Berlin and many other European cities.
It has also always been the motorcycle of the Corazzieri, the elite guard of honor of the President of the Italian Republic. Moto Guzzi has accompanied the economic growth and social development of Italy, its motorcycles are part of popular culture and today continue to inspire the passion of thousands of bikers around the world.
