Moto Guzzi turned 100 years old on March 15, 2021, and ever since the company has been celebrating in style. From offering a 100-year anniversary V7, V85 TT, and V9 special-editions to releasing a commemorative photo hinting at a new model, Guzzi has owned its centennial. Now, the company is taking the show on the road with an Italian tour featuring its most celebrated models.
Partnering with the Automobile Club of Italy (ACI Storico), the tour will emphasize Guzzi’s importance within Italy’s history, culture, and social growth. Exhibits will highlight models that influenced the style of the era through innovative engineering and technology. Showcasing many of the motorcycles included on our list of Moto Guzzi’s most important, the lineup will feature classics such as the Galletto 192, V7 Sport, and Griso 1100. Earlier models such as the Sport 500, Falcone, and Guzzino will also be on display.
