A very limited edition of the V11, the Coppa Italia was very well spec’d, with Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, an optional $2,000 titanium exhaust, and more.

In Italy, Standard by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Moto Guzzi Astorino is a rare find in its home country of Italy, let alone here in the US.

1989 Moto Guzzi Mille GT

In Italy, Standard by Mathieu Guyot-SionnestLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This Mille GT got no interest at the opening ask of $4,999. 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.
