The traditional mid-September event Moto Guzzi hosts each year managed to gather around 25 thousand fans from all over the world this time which can be considered already a record. Thousands of bikers rode their Guzzis to the plant in Mandello, coming from Europe as well as Australia, China, Japan and the United States.

As always, Moto Guzzi opened the doors of its factory and historic museum between 9 - 11 September, for fans to see how their favorite bikes are made as well as have a look at the brand’s past. The program also included concerts, live music, street food, and even test drives with the company’s latest models.

Bikers had the chance to ride the current Moto Guzzi range, and More than 700 riders threw a leg over the V7II bikes (Stone, Racer, Special and brand new Stornello), the powerful California 1400 SE Touring, the luxurious Eldorado, the aggressive Audace, as well as the fledgling V9 STI Bobber and Roamer versions.

But the true star of the event was the extraordinary MGX-21, the most spectacular bike produced at Mandello. The model made quite a sensation at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally this year in August and was defined by the American public as “the fastest bagger ever.”

One of the most visited locations was the engine assembly line, the very place where Moto Guzzi bikes are born for all markets around the world. Second came the Historic Museum that houses more than 150 motorcycles, from the GP bikes of its origins to the MGS-01, as well as the first Normale model produced in 1921.
