MGR 1200 rider “Lightning Sepp Leitl” finished 3rd place.

Germany / Glemseck, September 3rd, 2016 – When the motorcycles of the Essenza-Design-Competition put their power on the track to compete on the 1/8 mile sprint races at Glemseck 101 a tang of scorched rubber was in the air. Astride his powerful Moto Guzzi MGR 1200 customized by Radical Guzzi from Germany rider “Lightning Sepp Leitl” did not give a chance to his rivals up to the semifinal. During the start to the penultimate race his MGR 1200 just for a moment lost its grip on the rear. Test rider Francesca Gasperi / Kawasaki took the chance winning by a blink of an eye while the cool Bavarian finished on his Moto Guzzi third place on the podium. During the final heat the sympathetic Italian rider was defeated by former four time Superbike world champion Carl Fogarty on a Triumph.


On Saturday October 8th, 2016 during Intermot Customized event the 16 bikes of the Essenza project will have their second sprint competition. Exciting races and breathtaking sound will be guaranteed during the event on the Kölnmesse fair ground.
