Moto - News: Moto Guzzi Open House 2016


In its most complete edition, the Moto Guzzi Open House event is back. The programme for the 95th anniversary of the Larian brand is at once a celebration and the launch of a path that will lead toward the Moto Guzzi centennial. The Moto Guzzi Open House will be a great weekend celebration at Mandello del Lario (Lecco) – from Friday the 9th of September to Sunday the 11th of September – that will give the 10,000-plus bikers and their families who are expected to attend an unforgettable programme that is enhanced for this 2016 edition with a range of new initiatives. The absolute star of the 2016 event will be the new Moto Guzzi MGX-21, the most spectacular bike ever produced at Mandello, protagonist – just recently – at the 76th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the most important rally in the world, being held in South Dakota (USA). The arrival of the MGX-21, a luxurious cruiser powered by the classic Moto Guzzi V-twin with a record displacement of 1400 cc, marks the launch of the five-year period that will lead up to the centennial in 2021.

The Lord of The Bikes troupe will also be at work during the Mandello weekend, immortalizing images for the next edition of the lucky TV talent dedicated to customising on SKY that, in the 2016 season, had Moto Guzzi starring in a challenge between the best Italian customizers. But the surprises do not end here. Since every event, in addition to its traditions and locations, also has its cult objects, for all those who want to experience the Moto Guzzi Open House as protagonists, a special kit has been prepared specifically for the occasion that can be purchased online ( The kit contains everything you need to enjoy the three Larian days in full Guzzi style. The 2016 Moto Guzzi Open House will begin on Friday, 9 September, at 3:00PM with the opening of the Museum and the Shop. On Saturday the 10th the programme will already be in full swing. Beginning from 9:30AM visitors will also be able to tour the production lines, engine assembly where the legendary Guzzi twin cylinders come to life, and the historic Wind Tunnel. The Moto Guzzi range exhibit will be the prologue to test rides (registration on site) of the sporty Griso, the adventurous Stelvio, the versatile Moto Guzzi V7II (Stone, Racer Special and the new Stornello), the powerful California 1400 Touring SE, the luxurious Eldorado, the aggressive Audace and the latest arrivals: the Moto Guzzi V9 in the Bobber and Roamer versions.

Those who adhere to this universe of values, style and excitement, will find themselves at home in The Clan, the official Moto Guzzi community that reserves exclusive benefits for its members. On the occasion of Moto Guzzi Open House 2016, in a space specifically dedicated to welcoming Made in Mandello bikes, membership in the community will be offered (online registration at as well as the privilege of accessing the related benefits such as dedicated test rides, personalised Museum and plant tours and the opportunity to take advantage (following online booking) of a free check-up on their bikes, right in the Mandello garage. The programme will continue in full swing until the afternoon of Sunday the 11th of September when with the last tour of the plant scheduled for 5:30PM, it will be time to bid one another farewell and the Guzzisti will get back on the road home, enriched with new memories and great excitement.
