Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello

Moto Guzzi’s New V100 Mandello. A new V1000 engine signals a new era for the grand Italian marque. As with so many other gatherings, the pandemic disrupted Moto Guzzi’s plans to celebrate its 100th anniversary (March 1921–March 2021). Guzzi’s traditional worldwide gathering of thousands of Guzzisti was supposed to happen this September in Mandello del Lario, Italy. Now that’s been moved to September of 2022. Now, Moto Guzzi has announced plans for a new factory and museum in Mandello del Lario. Along with that announcement comes images of the first of a new generation of models: the V100 Mandello. All the details will officially come off at EICMA, the motorcycle expo held in Milan from November 23–28. Meanwhile, we already have some inside info. And the news is especially exciting, because those next-generation Guzzis will use a radically new V-twin, one designed along the traditional 90-degree layout with cylinders jutting out on each side. The overall engine design makes a lot of sense. Although it wasn’t invented by Moto Guzzi, this engine architecture has become a fundamental part of the Moto Guzzi brand over the years, much as the opposed “boxer” twin has for BMW, the 45-degree V-twin for Harley-Davidson (for how much longer?), and the fore-and-aft 90-degree V-twin for Ducati. All three of those companies have kept their iconic layouts while modernizing their engines.
