Moto Guzzi motorbikes have been in production since 1921, the oldest European motorbike company in continuous production. Many iconic brands have come and gone, but Moto Guzzi remains in spite of the huge Japanese competition. Piaggio now owns Moto Guzzi, so they have kept their Italian roots. As with most things Italian, there is a distinct style, but they also innovate. For example, they have a close relationship with the University of Perugia. Here, aerodynamic programs are combined with wind tunnel tests, to make sure that optimal wind resistant results are produced. It is possible to purchase a Motto Guzzi, with companies that have Moto Guzzi for sale supplying different models.
