15,000 Visit Moto Guzzi Open House in Mandello
Moto Guzzi Museum

Over the weekend, the famed Italian brand Moto Guzzi held an open house at its hometown of Mandello del Lario on Como Lake.

More than 15,000 fans showed up – most of them on Moto Guzzi motorcycles – to celebrate the open house for the brand that was founded in 1921 in Mandello

The Piaggio-owned brand reports that fans and family came from all over the world to the open house, with license plates from all over the world – England, Germany, Spain, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Poland, Hungary and even Russia.

More than 9,000 visitors toured the Moto Guzzi Museum, and more than 400 participated in test rides, which included rides on some unique models such as the Moto Guzzi V7 II collection, the California 1400, the Eldorado and the Audace.

Besides rides and visits to the museum, Moto Guzzi reports that “Hundreds of new members joined The Moto Guzzi Clan, the official community of bikers where members can share the pride of being a Guzzista. Guests were excited and fascinated by the famous wind tunnel, built in 1950 (the first in the world of its kind) and it was three days of non-stop work for Aryk Old Paint, the well-known artist who decorated helmets and jackets with the Moto Guzzi eagle for dozens of enthusiasts.

“The complete and free bike check-up also met with enormous success among the Guzzisti in attendance, carried out directly in the plant workshop: a return to their birthplace for these machines, to have a check-up conducted by the same skilled hands of the mechanics that build Guzzis every day.”
