MANDELLO DEL LARIO SEES THE RETURN OF THE GMG – GUZZI WORLD DAYS AND THE CITTÀ DELLA MOTO GUZZI INTERNATIONAL MOTORCYCLE RALLY AN UNMISSABLE DOUBLE DATE FOR EVERY MOTORCYCLE RIDER AND ALL MOTO GUZZI LOVERS, WITH THOUSANDS EXPECTED FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

After a year’s wait due to the restrictions preventing celebrations for a century of Moto Guzzi in 2021, the great, most eagerly awaited party is finally here in Mandello del Lario.

The weekend of 8 to 11 September will be an unmissable occasion for all fans of the L’Aquila-based brand and every lover of motorcycling and beautiful bikes.

Over the second weekend of September, Mandello will turn into the global epicentre of motorcycling passion, because Moto Guzzi represents an unrivalled heritage of history, technology, style and allure, capable of engaging and thrilling every generation.

It’s a double date, in recognition of such an important occasion: eleven years after the last edition, the GMG – Guzzi World Days are back, and they join the Città Della Moto Guzzi International Motorcycle Rally.

These two spectacular events promise to cover every single moment of a weekend set to be unique, for a worthy celebration of a hundred years of fantastic history, made up of beautiful, exciting motorbikes that have made us – and still make us – wild with joy, and to celebrate the rite of Moto Guzzi passion, both in the historic Via Parodi 57 factory and all over Mandello del Lario.

The GMG – Guzzi World Days and Città Della Moto Guzzi International Motorcycle Rally for the 100th Anniversary will represent a natural, irresistible attraction for every Guzzista, who won’t want to oppose the return of their Moto Guzzi, from every era, to its birthplace on the shore of Lake Como, which will be the focus of celebrations with a packed calendar of events starting on Thursday 8 September.

Together with the International Motorcycle Rally Committee, Moto Guzzi is preparing a festival that deserves the title “not to be missed” like never before.

MOTO GUZZI FAST ENDURANCE EUROPEAN CUP 2022

23 November, Milan, Italy – Six spectacular Fast Endurance races, featuring the best Italian circuits starting in Vallelunga and finishing in Misano. The new Moto Guzzi V7 with 850cc engine, outfitted with GCourse racing kit and Pirelli tyres, makes its track debut. The tried and true V7 III bikes are also on the grid in a separate category.

 

After three extraordinarily successful seasons with no fewer than 30 teams on every starting grid in 2021, the Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance Trophy – dedicated to riders who want to venture into riding in spectacular “fast endurance” races inspired by the legendary races of yesteryear – is back in 2022 with a big addition. For the fourth edition of the Eagle single-brand championship, the new Moto Guzzi V7 “racing” version will make its début.

 

With a market launch in early 2021 and wildly popular with the general public straight away, so much that it was one of the most sold bikes in Italy, the latest generation of the best seller from Mandello – equipped with the new 850 cc twin-cylinder and revamped chassis architecture – will be the protagonist of the Cup, promising even higher performance and more fun for all participants.

 

The equipment package that transforms the new Moto Guzzi V7 into the racing version, compulsory to participate and the same for everyone, is developed, as always, at the skilled hands of the Guareschi brothers, the historic Moto Guzzi tuners who created the GCorse Racing Kit dedicated to the new V7.

The result is an even faster and higher performance bike with better frame and suspension qualities that make it more stable and precise. This increases performance and the thrills on the track, but the features which have made the Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance so successful remain unchanged, making it possible for anyone to get into racing: the new V7 “Trofeo” is still easy, accessible, and suited for any rider.

 

In the 2022 edition, riders will still be able to use the “racing” version of the Moto Guzzi V7 III, protagonist of the first three years of the single-brand championship. An easier and more accessible alternative for anyone wanting to have fun on the track or for those who want to get one more year out of the investment made in the previous seasons.

The teams on the “seven-fifty” from Mandello with GCorse Racing Kits will race along with all the others, but a specific race and championship category will be dedicated to them.

 

Last, but not least, for 2022, the invaluable collaboration with Pirelli has been confirmed, sole supplier of the single-brand trophy. All the V7 machines on the grid will be shod with Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp RS, racing tyres developed specifically for the Moto Guzzi V7 and which have proven to perform extremely well in any condition.

 

The new Moto Guzzi V7's track début is not the only significant change in the 2022 Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance. After a three-year period of constant growth which culminated with the recognition of the prestigious FIM European Cup title, assigned for the first time precisely in Moto Guzzi's centennial year, the Eagle single-brand championship is ready for another significant step up in quality, scheduling rounds on four of the most spectacular and fascinating tracks in Italy. These “new entries” are the Cremona Circuit and the fantastic hills of Mugello, the temple of speed for any motorcycling enthusiast.

 

The cup will feature six “mini endurance” races:

  • Vallelunga (14, 15 May): two 60-minute races
  • Cremona Circuit (17 July): 90-minute race
  • Mugello (28 August): 90-minute race
  • Misano (15, 16 October): 90-minute night race (day 1), 60-minute race (day 2)

The first Misano race will be held at night with the floodlights (and V7 headlights) illuminating the track. The new addition of the night race will give participants the opportunity to experience another type of thrill usually reserved for a few lucky riders.

 

Every race weekend includes two timed practice sessions, 20 minutes long each for every rider. The average of the best times achieved by the two riders on the team will determine the starting position of each team on the grid for the race or for both in the case of weekends with double races.

A clear throwback to the legendary endurance races of old is represented by the race start, which takes place in “Le Mans” style, in other words, with the bikes lined up on one side of the track and the riders having to cross the asphalt at the start to jump in the saddle and begin the race.

In the race, each rider can ride for no more than 15 minutes (plus 5 minutes to return to pit lane from the time the special “change” board is displayed). This means that the race is livened up by at least three or five rider changes on pit lane, depending on whether it is a 60 or 90 minute race. Refuelling is not permitted. At the end of the race, points are awarded to the top 15 teams.

 

Participating in the Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance championship is the most fun way to discover your competitive side and to get a taste of the great sense of belonging generated by the Moto Guzzi brand. In total “Guzzista” style, the format of the race weekends combines sporting competition with an extremely social atmosphere. They will be weekends to cultivate friendships and sharing, which have always characterised the healthiest of sports. The Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance championship is made for everyone to have fun, from track novices all the way to the most seasoned racers.

THE MOTO GUZZI V100 MANDELLO EXCLUSIVELY UNVEILED AT EICMA

23 November 2021, Milan, Italy – The first bike in the world to offer adaptive aerodynamics; the first Moto Guzzi to feature semi-active suspension, an inertial platformcornering ABSquick shift and, as anticipated, a liquid cooling systemCompact, sporty and dynamic, it rides like a roadster, but with the comfort and travel vocation typical of the best tourers.


 Moto Guzzi paves the way for future motorcycle innovation with a complete, powerful, comfortable, fun bike, packed with first-rate technology. Starting a brand new chapter in the story with a bike that refuses to fit into just one category. Marking its centenary in 2021, Moto Guzzi does not just celebrate a milestone but rather a starting point – the beginning of a new century which will continue to see magnificent motorcycles, authentic and strong in character.

 

Oozing with charm and cutting-edge technology, these modern bikes will be proudly made in Italy, as ever, at the Mandello del Lario factory. The factory itself will also benefit from a new look, the result of an ambitious project to reconstruct, expand and develop over the coming years – including opening to the public and promoting efficient use of resources for environmental sustainability.

 

The “V100” name signifies several important themes for the Moto Guzzi brand: Firstly, 100 years of history, passion, skill, innovation and success. It refers also to the next century that has just begun, and finally, indicates the displacement of the very modern new engine, which will become the basis for a family of new generation motorcycles.

 

V100 Mandello features an innovative design that focuses on showcasing the unique and inimitable twin engine. Far from nostalgic, the lines offer a modern take on the very cornerstones of Moto Guzzi style. A 21st-century bike in style and technology, V100 Mandello still continues to embody the character and authenticity typical of all Moto Guzzis.

 

It will also be the first Moto Guzzi powered by the new “compact block” engine, with its sophisticated technical characteristics. An innovative design has allowed for the development of an extremely compact and lightweight engine, which is 103 mm shorter than the V85 TT small block. The new twin stands out from all the engines recently built in Mandello del Lario for its cylinder heads, which are rotated by 90°, a decision that increases onboard comfort and rationalises the positioning of components in the intake and electronic injection systems.

Its actual displacement equates to 1042 cc, while timing involves a double overhead camshaft with finger followers and four valves per cylinder, which are chain driven. It also flaunts a wet sump lubrication system, a liquid cooling system, and a hydraulically-controlled wet clutch.

 

Performance is also second to none, with power in excess of 115 HP and torque of more than 105 Nm. Also, the shaft drive employs a long aluminium single-sided swingarm, now positioned on the left. This, along with the lower drive shaft exit position, makes for a much smoother ride.

 

The sports character of V100 Mandello does not just have to do with the performance of the new engine, but also the qualities of a compact and manageable chassis, which offers excitement through the turns and fast sections but also real stability over more long-range trips, with that inimitable front wheel feeling, synonymous with fun and riding pleasure. This is also thanks to the steel tube frame.

 

Its touring attitude is boosted thanks to the significant comfort that the generous saddle and active, relaxed riding position afford. Two-person travel is at the base of the project, the passenger able to count on a significant, well-padded portion of the saddle and practical grab handles, with a posture that ensures a relaxing trip.

 

Moto Guzzi technology also contributes to increasing both comfort and air protection, with the world-first adoption of an adaptive aerodynamic system that automatically adjusts the position of deflectors on the sides of the 17.5-litre tank depending on the speed and selected Riding Mode. The fully raised aerodynamic appendages reduce air pressure on the rider by 22%, which brings V100 Mandello close to the level of air protection afforded by more voluminous and less sporty tourers, thanks also to the protection provided by the top fairing, the height of which can be electronically adjusted.

 

This system contributes to what is a first-rate electronics package, including:

  • The Ride by Wire electronic accelerator
  • The advanced Marelli 11MP ECU
  • The six-axis inertial platform for management of the electronic controls
  • Cruise control
  • Cornering ABS to ensure active safety when braking through turns

 

Four Riding Modes are available, namely Travel, Sport, Rain and Road. Each of these manages three different engine mappings, four levels of traction control, three levels of engine brake and (in the version that introduces them as standard) also calibration of the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension, which can adapt automatically, minute by minute, to suit the type of riding and the road conditions, for the best possible bike behaviour in any situation. Electronic parameters can also be personalised so that every rider can find their preferred settings.

Also included as standard is the 5″ colour TFT instrumentation, full LED lighting with DRL and the “bending lights” system with a pair of additional lights that illuminate the entire corner, increasing visibility when leaning.

 

V100 Mandello is available in two versions, which differ in terms of their trim. The more comprehensive version includes Öhlins semi-active suspension as standard, but also the quick shift, heated handgrips, and the Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia platform that allows a smartphone to be connected to the instrumentation via Bluetooth to extend its functions. Moto Guzzi MIA includes both the infotainment system for management of the voice assistant, phone calls and music via the intuitive handlebar controls, and the GPS function, which allows the rider to view directions directly on the instrument panel once a destination is set on the smartphone.

 

GMG GUZZI WORLD DAYS AND THE CENTENARY MOTORCYCLE RALLY POSTPONED TO 2022

GMG GUZZI WORLD DAYS AND THE CENTENARY MOTORCYCLE RALLY POSTPONED TO 2022

THE SITUATION CREATED BY THE PANDEMIC HAS MADE IT NECESSARY TO RESCHEDULE THE EVENTS THAT WAS DUE TO BE HELD IN MANDELLO DEL LARIO FROM 6 TO 12 SEPTEMBER

Mandello del Lario, 30 July 2021 – The 2021 edition of GMG Guzzi World Days and the Centenary Motorcycle Rally will not be held as planned from 6 to 12 September in Mandello del Lario, due to the situation created by the Covid-19 pandemic.

 

With great regret, and based on the indications of the authorities and the advice regarding the health situation, Moto Guzzi, the Mandello del Lario Town Council and the Motorcycle Rally Organising Committee have had to take the very difficult decision to cancel the event.

 

Current conditions, and the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, would have severely limited the possibility of organising an event to match the expectations of the many thousands of enthusiasts who would have arrived from around the world.

 

The centenary celebrations have only been put on hold, however: the Mandello del Lario municipality and Moto Guzzi will make sure that this important anniversary can be celebrated freely and safely, to everyone’s enjoyment, in 2022.

 

The Mayor of Mandello del Lario, Riccardo Fasoli, said:

We continued hope right until the end, but the current situation of the pandemic means the anti-contagion measures cannot be relaxed as we would have wished. Conditions are such that we are unable to offer an event in line with expectations for an unforgettable celebration of the centenary. The postponement will enable enthusiasts all over the world to celebrate a completely safe and happy motorcycle rally with us in Mandello.”

 

Bikers will therefore not find the events, entertainment and attractions associated with this type of celebration in Mandello. For visitors who decide nonetheless to come to the area in early September, Moto Guzzi will keep the Museum open, but, in accordance with the protocols, visits must be booked in advance and will take place with all the precautions required by law.

Additional information will be provided in August.

NEW MOTO GUZZI V7

                                          

More than fifty years after the launch of its first unit, Moto Guzzi is proud to present a new and important evolution of the V7.  As well as a total revamp, this model will for the first time since 2007 be known as simply V7 and will drop the previously used Roman numerals from its name.  The adhering character and authenticity of this bike will remain intact, as these features are classic, will not date and are part of Moto Guzzi's make up.

After years of great success, a new V7 is born.
The new, high-performance, 850cc, 65HP engine makes its début

The new V7 is faster, more comfortable and better equipped, whilst maintaining all the character and authenticity that every Moto Guzzi boasts

V7 will also be available in a reduced-power version, in line with  A2 license restrictions and is ideal for new Guzzisti. It will also come with adjustable MGCT traction control as standard (which can also be disabled).

Two versions are available, V7 Stone with its strong minimalistic style, is joined by the V7 Special, with its classic and elegant lines.

V7 Stone is available in four satin-finish colour schemes: Nero Ruvido, Azzurro Ghiaccio and Arancione Rame to which is added the special Centenary graphic, commemorating the first hundred years of life of the Larian brand, born in 1921.

V7 CENTENARIO

Half a century of incredible emotions

The V7 is never afraid to rewrite history, even after more than 50 years since it roared onto the scene.  The world-revered Italian motorcycle icon maybe getting a celebratory makeover, but fear not the character and personality that’s made it such a timeless masterpiece will remain untouched.


A new Moto Guzzi engine makes its debut on the new V7, a close derivative of the one that powers the V85 TT.  This is the most recent and modern drive built in Mandello, which guarantees better performance and overall greater efficiency in order to provide maximum riding pleasure, fun and reliability.

Compared to the previous version, the new addition from Mandello is generally more complete in terms of equipment and demonstrates superior maturity, also evident in the aesthetic impact of the larger engine, which stands out for its generously sized exhaust pipes in a different layout; the view  from the rear highlights the larger cardan final drive, the wider rear wheel and the robust Kayaba shock absorbers.

The frame has been enhanced with the addition of steel elements in the headstock area.  The new shock absorbers have greater travel and the new two-tier saddle / rider foot pegs ensure greater comfort.

V85 TT MY21

                                                  

A dream on two wheels

There’s simply no other way to describe the V85 TT and the V8 TT Travel. The Euro 5-compliant engine with greater torque in low and medium speeds delivers a performance that is more powerful and thrilling than ever. Five riding modes mean even the most accomplished riders will find something to set their pulse racing. On the aesthetics front, there are stunning tubeless wheels and striking new graphics that show off every curve of the bike, to say nothing of the effect they’ll have on passers-by as you swoop round the curves of the road. Admit it, you’re already itching to don your helmet!

A bike for living, not simply riding

Sleek, practical and sporting the famous Moto Guzzi style, the V85 TT is the perfect companion, whether we’re talking about every day commuting or intrepid adventures. There’s no compromising on comfort and performance, and this is something not to be sneezed at in a market that is becoming increasingly cookie-cutter. The V85 TT has certainly delivered on its ambition to combine iconic design with all the bells and whistles of a modern enduro touring bike, and definitely earns the title of First and Only in Class when it comes to a classic enduro.  

Distance poses no problem

The V85 TT Travel includes all the tech updates of its V85 TT sibling. It comes with all the features that you’ll need on a long trip, such as the Touring windshield, Urban series side panniers with increased capacity and reduced bulk, LED auxiliary lights, adjustable heated handgrips and last, but not least, the Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia platform available as an extra.

Looks that pack a punch

The V85 TT comes in three brand-new graphic options, developed to show off every curve of its stylish frame. Choose from Nero Etna black, Giallo Mojave yellow and the striking red Rosso Uluru version.

Embrace the luxury of freedom

There is no doubt that the V85 TT has inherited the Moto Guzzi love of travel. It’s all about adventuring and exploring, and no bike more than this evokes vivid memories of the famous desert competitions of years gone by, such as the Paris-Dakar rally of the 1980s. And, even if the V85 TT is not quite a time machine, it comes close, recreating the freedom and thrills that have made the Mandello eagle so revered over the decades.

V9 MY 21

                                             

RIDING IS EASY, BUT DISMOUNTING IS ANYTHING BUT

Packed with new technology and engineering excellence, this is not a bike for anyone trying to keep a low profile.

With the completely overhauled twin-cylinder 850cc, 65 hp, 73 Nm engine and advanced frame, riding thrills are taken to a whole new level, while on the looks side, new finishes, foot pegs and saddle deliver all the style you’d expect from a bike sporting the Mandello eagle.
After all, it’s not by chance that Moto Guzzi custom bikes have been among the world’s most popular and beloved for over 100 years. Generations have revered their unique design and of course, at the heart of each is the legendary twin-cylinder 90° V-engine engine.
A century of tenaciousness, passion and testing come together in the V9 Roamer andV9 Bobber, to deliver an unbeatable combination of outstanding riding pleasure and showstopping style.

MODELS

Both models are available in a reduced-power variant to meet the criteria of a learner's or beginner's licence, meaning even young riders can enjoy the thrill of a V9. However, be warned, it may be hard to prise them off the saddle!

V9 ROAMER

An intuitive and universal custom, the V9 Roamer is a dream to ride, packed with unique features and stunning finishes.

V9 BOBBER

The dark soul of Moto Guzzi, the V9 Bobber sports oversize tyres and alluring, sleek lines.

A remarkable engine

The most evident change is the new 850cc, 65 hp and 73 Nm engine. Sharing the same pedigree as the V85 TT, it delivers lively performance and is ably abetted by an improved frame that has been strengthened in the headstock area to increase stability and riding precision.

Sheer sophistication

Vibrations are a distant memory, with comfort taken to the nth degree. There is all you could ask of and more, with functions such as ABS and MGCT adjustable traction control, which you can also choose to disable. On top of this, the V9 Bobber boasts new a new digital instrument panel and a full-LED lighting system that highlights the silhouette of the Mandello eagle

All you need for great adventures

And of course, there are plenty of accessories to add that extra wow touch to both models, starting with the Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia system that connects your phone and bike to create a multi-functional onboard computer.

Colours

Style in abundance

The V9 Roamer comes in Grigio Lunare, an elegant shade of grey with glossy mudguards, fuel tank and side panels. Whether parked or in full flight on the road, it’s sure to attract admiring glances.

The V9 Bobber is available in Nero Essenziale, in keeping with its dark, nocturnal spirit, a characteristic that is further emphasised through the absence of any milling on the cylinder fins which are also totally black.
