A 'GMG' is all very well, but we wish Moto Guzzi were doing a street version of their 1950s V8-engined racebike for their 90th Anniversary celebrations...!

Established in March 1921, Moto Guzzi are celebrating their 90th Anniversary this year and Piaggio, present owners of this famous (if a bit quirky…) Italian motorcycle brand, have announced a special edition of the Giornate Mondiali Guzzi (GMG), which will be held in Mandello del Lario in mid-September this year.

More than 20,000 Guzzi fans are expected to attend the 90th Anniversary GMG, where the company will also launch the new 2012 Stelvio 1200 8V and 1200 NTX, and the Norge GT 8V. The new California and V7 Scrambler, unveiled in Monte Carlo in February this year, will also be showcased at the GMG.

Here, at Faster and Faster, we wish Moto Guzzi a very happy birthday. We love some of their bikes – machines like the 1980s 850 Le Mans and the 1950s 500cc V8-engined GP racebike. And while we don’t believe every Italian motorcycle manufacturer has do their own version of the 1198SP or the RSV4 Factory, we do hope Guzzi will do a slightly more performance-oriented machine at some time in the near future.
