History

A legend, for more than ninety years.

Those who know us can tell a story of ingenuity and passion, style and victories, written by legendary riders and bikes. They can tell of a pleasure without compromise, where the journey is not to arrive at the destination but the pretext to continue to ride. Those who know us can tell a story... those who are part of it can write it.



Wind tunnel

Moto Guzzi has the world's only wind tunnel for testing the aerodynamics of motorcycles. The wind tunnel enables testing at the highest speeds mechanically attainable by the bikes themselves.

The wind tunnel is primarily used to define the fairings fitted to race machines to reduce wind resistance, and the results are immediately apparent in the significant gains in speed recorded during subsequent track testing. During bike testing in the tunnel, the rider also experiments with the poses he will assume during a race, to define the ideal position at different speeds.

Once wind tunnel testing is complete, the bike is aerodynamically optimised and the rider knows precisely what positions to assume on the bike itself to achieve the highest speeds possible during the race.
