It was 15 March 1921 when the "Società Anonima Moto Guzzi" was established with the goal of "Manufacturing and sales of motorcycles and any other activity pertinent or connected to the metal mechanical industry". And it was precisely in that moment, in memory of one of the founders’ brothers in arms, that the eagle with spread wings was chosen as the new company’s symbol. Since then, the eagle, which quickly gained notoriety all over the world, has been Moto Guzzi’s symbol.
A century of history later, one hundred years of spectacular motorcycles, victories, adventures and iconic characters have built the legend of the Eagle Brand. Moto Guzzi celebrates this extraordinary birthday with a 2021 full of initiatives that will culminate in the GMG. The Giornate Mondiali Moto Guzzi is scheduled to be held in Mandello del Lario from 9th- 12th of September this year.
These get togethers, the GMG, are always a must-attend event for any ‘Guzzi enthusiast. They are back ten years after the last one was held. Tens of thousands of enthusiasts will flock from all over the world to experience, what will be, a unique and unforgettable event. This is made possible by the collaboration between Moto Guzzi, Motoraduno Internazionale Committee as well as the local municipality.
Moto Guzzi Centennial Livery - Limited Series
For such a special occasion, Moto Guzzi will produce a limited series of their models in a special Centennial Livery. This will be available on V7, V9 and V85 TT only throughout 2021. An exclusive, elegant and attractive colour scheme which is evocative of a unique heritage. It draws its origins from the aesthetics of legendary bikes which made motorcycling history.
This milestone in motorbike history has an extremely elegant colour scheme. It is purely racing essence. It combines the satin-finished metal of the fuel tank with the green of the fairing and leather on the seat. Colours that also characterised the 350 Bialbero, one of the most victorious bikes in history, the unbeatable dominator of the 350 class in World Championship GP Motorcycle Racing, with the amazing record of nine consecutive world titles from 1953 to 1957.
Green was also the first colour “worn” by a Moto Guzzi with the Normale. This was the first model, and probably the most iconic of the Eagle’s colours. The Style Centre reinterpreted it in a modern approach with a matt finish and associated with metallic colours. Other distinguishing details are the eagle in gold finish and the dedicated logo that graphically celebrates Moto Guzzi’s 100 years.
The full range, including the ones celebrating the 100 years of Moto Guzzi, are available in Ireland courtesy of Megabikes. Call any of the team on 01478 4200 for more information.
