Moto Guzzi limited edition centenary V7 and V85 TT motorbikes take to the road, GMG event returns

Legendary Italian motorcycle maker Moto Guzzi has begun shipping its eagerly awaited  ‘Centenario’ special limited edition V7 Stone best-seller and V85 TT adventure model, as part of its 2021 centenary celebrations.

Available from Moto Guzzi direct and local dealers, their distinctive colour scheme and aesthetics pay homage to the 8-cylinder 500 Bialbero of 1955, with a satin-finished metal fuel tank, green fairing, a leather seat and a specifically crafted 100Y Moto Guzzi logo for a golden finish. 

The colour scheme also recalls the livery of the classic 350 Bialbero racer, which dominated the 350 class in World Championship GP Motorcycle Racing, with 9 consecutive world titles (five Rider and four Manufacturer), between 1953 to 1957. 

A V9 Bobber Centenario, with similar limited edition throw-back livery, will follow in July.  However, we’re told that particular edition won’t be available in the UK market.

As part of its centennial celebrations, the Eagle Brand will also bring back the GMG (Giornate Mondiali Moto Guzzi), from September 9-12 2021, in Mandello Del Lario, for the first time in 10 years. 

This event hopes to attract tens of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world (Covid-19 restrictions and travel complications not withstanding). More info about the GMG event can be found at Moto Guzzi online.

Established in 1921, Moto Guzzi motorcycles are renowned for their classic design, outstanding construction and state-of-the-art technical equipment,  ‘reflecting a construction philosophy in which style, simplicity and practicality make for an unfiltered relationship between motorcycle and rider.’
