The company "Società Anonima Moto Guzzi" was founded in Genoa for "the manufacture, sale of motorcycles and all other activities related to or connected with metalworking" on March 15, 1921.
The company's first motorcycle was the legendary 8 HP Normale. This was followed by successful models such as the 1928 Guzzi GT, nicknamed “Norge” to commemorate the Arctic Circle trip, and the Airone 250 (1939), which remained Italy's best-selling medium-capacity motorcycle for 15 years.
The company launched new models such as the Guzzino 65 ("Cardellino"), Europe's best-selling motorcycle for over a decade, during the years following World War II. It was followed by the legendary Galletto (1950) and Lodola 175 (1956). In the late 1960s, Moto Guzzi presented the 90° V-twin engine that would become its symbol. This engine was used as the basis for models such as the Guzzi V7, V7 Special and yet another iconic Guzzi V7 Sport. The majestic V-twin was also produced as smaller capacity V35 and V50 variants.
On December 30, 2004, Moto Guzzi became part of the Piaggio Group, the European leader in the two-wheeled vehicle market and one of the world's most important manufacturers in the sector.
As proof of the great passion that unites all Moto Guzzi owners, 15 thousand Guzzists from more than 20 countries flocked to Mandello del Lario for the fourth edition of GMG ('Giornate Mondiali Guzzi' - World Guzzi Days) from September 15 to 17. Countless Guzzi owner associations around the world run by Moto Guzzi Club have unique loyal followers. There are more than 25,000 Motor Guzzi motorcycle club members worldwide (the largest in the USA with 52 clubs) and more than 70 websites dedicated to the brand.
Since 2016, Moto Guzzi has been serving its customers with the assurance of Doğan Trend Automotive, a subsidiary of Doğan Holding, and a wide network of authorized dealers and service centres in Turkey. You can find detailed information about Moto Guzzi at www.motoguzzi.com.tr
