guzzisti set attendance record at mandello

Thirty thousand Moto Guzzi fans from all over Europe made the pilgrimage this year to the home of the famous Italian brand at its factory in Mandello del Lario on the shores of Lake Como.

The Open House ran from 6-8 September during which the Moto Guzzi plant was peacefully invaded by bikers and enthusiasts, but also by families and convoys of friends.

The three days were said to be “filled with love for bikes, friendship, music, travel, adventure and lots of test rides”.

As always, the central moment of the Mandello celebration was Saturday, the day when record attendance on a single day was recorded – 20,000 – and the day that began with the arrival of the “Road to Mandello” convoy, consisting of more than 200 Guzzisti who had left from Milan to reach the legendary red gates on Via Parodi, the symbol of Moto Guzzi.

As well as a multitude of older machines, including legendary models such as the Falcone, the Galletto, the V7 range, the Le Mans and Imola sport bikes – interest this year was focused on the Moto Guzzi V85 TT, the all-terrain bike which, after being introduced during this year, is already the brand’s best-seller and one of the most admired bikes this season.

The Moto Guzzi Museum, which houses and preserves more than 150 historic models, beginning with the 1950s era racing bikes, including the legendary 8-cylinder 500, was just one of the attractions, as was the wind tunnel, while the assembly lines were invaded by visitors from Friday.

Moto Guzzis dominated the glory years of motorcycling, winning 15 championship titles (eight rider and seven manufacturer) in Grand Prix motorcycle racing.
