    Moto Guzzi is once again the protagonist and is now aiming ... Le Mans?

    The eagle flies. And it does so on the two-wheeler market. There are about 8300 Moto Guzzis sold between Italy and abroad in the last five months and, considering the period from March to today, that is when the first V85 TTs left the production line, between Italy and abroad the Classic Enduro totaled more than 3,300 bikes delivered, making it also one of the most appreciated endurons on the Italian market. More than encouraging results for the Larian house, which after difficult years seems to have taken the right track to restore luster to its glorious coat of arms.

    But don't stop there. New proposals are coming in the near future and many will revolve around the new V85. On the EICMA catwalks we will almost certainly see what Guzzi's 2020 will be and more: in 2021 the centenary of the foundation is celebrated. It was 1921, in fact, when Carlo Guzzi and Giorgio Parodi founded the house that in almost one hundred years of history has known how to cut itself into an important place among the great industries in the history of the two wheels. And just to pay tribute in the best way to this important anniversary that could see the light of a proposal for a "sports" mold. Mind you, you don't expect monsters from 200 and more horses, but something more inherent to the spirit of Moto Guzzi, while not denying a past made of superb racing achievements (the V8 of the engineer Carcano of 1955 is unforgettable). The V 85 engine lends itself well, for example, to the revival of a myth of the history of the second half of the 900: does Le Mans tell you anything?

    The programs for EICMA talk about a naked or a café racer that will be based on the technical basis of the V85 TT. The return of a legendary motorcycle, which will be side by side with the 850 displacement that is well suited to a bike that re-evokes the sport (for the period) Le Mans, and that in Milan will peek out as a concept and then be launched at the 2020 Show in sight, precisely of the centenary.

    A bike with a strong character, with all the Guzzi glory to show off on the sides. And so much is waiting for the autumn to understand how much the eagle is willing to fly high. However, the premises are definitely interesting.

    This is what I've been hoping for. A new 850 LeMans. Just a V7 frame with the TT850 motor tuned better for more power and torque to give SOME power to weight fun. A good throwback styling based off the MKIV ....With LED lighting... Not rocket science or too groundbreaking but just a cool bike that is legitimate to its roots.. But they can't screw this up. It's that easy. Just give the job to Miguel Galluzzi. He knows.. I told him one night when he was at Pro Italia a few years ago!!!
