2018 Long Beach International Motorcycle Show


We are pleased to share, we have just wrapped up another successful event with, Progressive International Motorcycle Show, in Long Beach, California.  For the second time in its history, Piaggio Group Americas had the opportunity to activate at this great show, showcasing all four of its brands; Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, Vespa and Piaggio.

Moto Guzzi had a line of customers rapidly forming in a valiant effort to throw a leg over the highly anticipated V85!  We overheard, consistent feedback about, “this V85 is the coolest adventure bike on the floor this year”!!  There was a ton of enthusiasm around the updated engineering of this powerful 80+ horsepower engine and impressively light weight of 441 lbs.  “I love the lower seat height without jeopardizing the travel, as well as a nice 5.5 gallon tank”, was one of many comments.


V85 TT Adventure

Almost a century of tradition, passion, and significant commercial and sporting success; almost a century of magnificent motorcycles all built in Mandello del Lario, combining the best technologies with first-rate Italian manufacturing techniques: Moto Guzzi values since 1921.

Moto Guzzi V85 TT is created in keeping with this strong identity, skilfully balancing that classic, evocative style with cutting-edge technical equipment. Presented at EICMA 2017, and having kept to its development and production schedule, the new Moto Guzzi reflects a construction philosophy in which simplicity, practicality and lightness make for an unfiltered relationship between motorcycle and rider.


V9 Bobber Sport

A strong personality matched with an enduringly tenacious spirit. This is the philosophy behind the new custom Special Edition of Moto Guzzi, a homage to the mythical racing bikes of the 1950s.

It's aggressive, quickfire temperament sets it apart from its V9 “sisters” with whom it shares the muscle power of a true custom bike.

Its unique design is seen in every curve and its detailing in total black contrast with an orange base for a highly original and striking dual colour aesthetic. With its classic bobber style oversize tyres, the V9 Bobber Sport is set to deliver a coup de foudre to all who set eyes on it!
