In Italy, Standard by Mathieu Guyot-SionnestLeave a Comment

While trying to recover from the Japanese motorcycle tsunami, Moto Guzzi had to find new ways to attract clients. Trying to compete on technology was probably pointless, so Guzzi decided to bet on ’60s nostalgia with the release of the Mille GT in 1987.

2014 Moto Guzzi Norge GT 8V

In Italy, Touring by Mazlow PetosaLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: The seller bumped up the BIN to $6,995 and this Guzzi did not sell. As a bike enthusiast, and a relatively young one at that, most of my knowledge is skewed toward the fuel-injected late model end of the spectrum. Admittedly, I have never seen a Moto Guzzi Norge GT.

5 Miles – 2004 Moto Guzzi MGS-01

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Moto Guzzi Sport, Number 1 – that’s what MGS-01 stood for. Doesn’t matter what you called it, it was an unexpected taste of what Guzzi would be capable of if they wanted to rub shoulders with Ducati or Aprilia in the exotic, red-blooded Italian sportbike game. The first examples of the bike were called the Corsa, a 1,200cc track-only superbike …

“V5 Sport” – 1981 Moto Guzzi V50 III Custom

In Custom, Italy by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This “V5” did not meet reserve despite 12 bids up to $2,520.

Not many were sold, but this example is truly a 1-of-1 as …
