There's going to be a big party on the shores of Lake Como this September, and you're all invited!

Moto Guzzi will be celebrating 100 years of building motorcycles. Despite a worldwide pandemic, the factory at Mandello del Lario has been gearing up for this since last year. Each year the Eagle-faithful trek to Northern Italy for Moto Guzzi World Days (or Giornate Mondiali Moto Guzzi as it's called in Italian). Of course this year will be special.

Three special Centenario edition motorcycles will be available through 2021. The special versions of the V7, V9 and V85TT feature a color scheme inspired by the incredible Otto Cilindri. This 500cc eight-cylinder motorcycle was the winner of the 1955 World Championship.

According to the press release the special livery represents Guzzi's origins:

Green was also the first colour “worn” by a Moto Guzzi with the Normale, the first model, and probably the most iconic of the Eagle’s colours. The Style Centre reinterpreted it in a modern approach with a matt finish and associated with metallic colours the express the solidity and authenticity of the Larian brand. The body colours are matched with a saddle covered with a natural coloured material, like that of leather, to highlight the typically Italian attention to detail.
