Why is Moto Guzzi the best loved Italian motorcycle manufacturer among collectors and enthusiasts of the two-wheeled world? And why is Carlo Guzzi considered an innovator in the world of the motorcycle? And how did the sensational racing bikes designed by Giulio Cesare Carcano and his assistants come to dominate the sport in the 1950s? Leafing through this book, readers will find not solely an introduction to the “Guzzi phenomenon”, but also an explanation to why, after almost a century, the Eagle of Mandello continues to fly. Part of the secret is having always remained true to itself, never foregoing certain fundamental motifs: the single-cylinder horizontal engine that with its beat lent a rhythm to the first fifty years of its history and the later V-twin that still today, in various displacements and fitted to a broad range of models, continues to set the enthusiast’s pulse racing. This authentic almanac of the historic marque from Mandello del Lario was first published in 2011 and has now been updated with the most recent Guzzi models: from the latest versions of the Stelvio to the California 1400 Touring, from the V7 II (2015) to the V7 III (2017), by way of the Audace, the Eldorado, the V9 Roamer and the futuristic MGX-21. All the latest jewels in a never-ending story. The book includes a systematic catalogue of all the Moto Guzzi models, complete with technical specifications and historic and modern photos.
