    The Moto Guzzi dealer, Europa Macchina in Lewisbury, PA is no longer as of mid-December 2017.

    After many months of deliberation, we have concluded that we are unable to sustain a viable Moto Guzzi franchise in Central Pennsylvania. Sales requirements and the debilitating auction market, combined with the Harley-centric territory in which we operate have resulted in significant losses for our small company.

    This has been a difficult decision for us - we are Moto Guzzi enthusiasts and have been very proud to carry the brand. We appreciate the many friends we've made over the past 10 years. We've enjoyed your company as you've stopped in to browse and to purchase, or have your bike serviced.

    We will no longer provide new bike sales, warranty, or general service work, but our restoration shop is in full operation for European classic cars and motorcycles. If you have a classic European bike in need of repair or restoration, please contact us - we'll be glad to hear from you.

    Thank you for your business, your time, and your friendship. Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and many blessings in 2018!

    Dennis, Lori, and Walter

    Another one bites the dust!
    The only Guzzi dealer in the Ottawa Canada area with a population of over a million people, stopped selling them last year as well. Slow sales was the reason.

    That is a shame. We bought our Lario from them (used). I enjoyed going to their shop. It is a worthy destination for any gearhead.
    Coincidentally, I was just talking about them yesterday with my wife, wondering if they were still a Guzzi dealer. A co-worker had bought his Stelvio from them, and being the weather was nice he had ridden it in.
    I don't even know where the nearest Guzzi dealer to us is now.....

    A classy farewell.

    I've only been there once; stopped in and got a tour from Walter, Dennis, & Lori. Pretty impressive operation.

    As for dealers "in the area," suppose these are closest, tho hardly next door for either of us:

    https://www.lamotowashington.com/, and

    https://www.motorichmond.com

    Have no experience with first, but Moto-Richmond was mighty fine in sales, service, and warranty work for my brother and me. I

    I called one morning to ask about a potential warranty issue. They contacted Piaggio and had approval that afternoon. That was a first for me with Guzzis.

    I did not know about the La Moto Washington. I do hate Northern Va, however. I think I would rather go to Richmond.....
    It is funny, it doesn't seem like it was that long ago that I lived two blocks from Speeds Cycle, where I bought the first Griso 1100 sold in MD.
    I must be getting old. Get off my lawn, ya damn kids......

    Loud music, loud exhausts, pushing limits etc.......

    I have a slogan to offer to Moto Guzzi U.S.: "Moto Guzzi; You're never more than 500 miles from your nearest dealer"

    Likewise, I did not know of La Moto Washington. I do think I would rather ride to EuroSports than to deal with D.C./NOVA traffic.
