Moto Guzzi motorcycle & its battery

Moto Guzzi is an Italian motorcycle manufacturing company in Europe. It is one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers that still continue its production to date. The company has a rich history, which also includes a series of ownership arrangements it has endured to become what it is today. The latest one in 2004 that saw it become a Subsidiary of Piaggio & C. SpA going by the name ‘Unico anzionista’, which is just one amongst the seven Subsidiary brands under Piaggio & C. SpA, Moto Guzzi is no doubt the largest European Motorcycle manufacturer, and the Fourth Largest in the world in terms of sales. Moto Guzzi’s history dates back all the way to 1921. The company was formed by aircraft pilots Carlo Guzzi, Giovanni Ravelli and their mechanic Giorgio Parodi. The three developed a close relationship serving in Italian Air Corp, Corpo Aeronautico Militare, during the First World War. Despite the different economic backgrounds they had, the three worked well and successfully put together the factory that would later grow to become one of Europe’s biggest motorcycles manufacturing plant.

Parodi was the main financier thanks to his wealthy background as the son of a wealthy ship-owner; Ravelli was a famous pilot at the time and also a great motorcycle racer, he promoted the bikes thanks to his outstanding racing skills. The company was officially formed in 1921 by Carlo Guzzi, Giorgio Parodi and Angelo Parodi’s brother. Angelo came on board following the death of Ravelli who died in an aircraft crash a few days after the War had ended. The three, Carlo, Giorgio and Angelo added the eagle’s wings in the Moto Guzzi logo as a way of commemorating the fallen pilot.

To date, the Company has over 50 different motorcycle models to its name. One of the most famous models is the Le Mans 850. The 850 was a sportier development of the 1971 Le Mans 750 V7 sport, designed by Engineer Lino Tonti. The V7 sport was meant to be the very first 200kg, motorcycle capable of speeds of up to 200 Kilometers per hour. The Le Man 850 debuted in the year 1976. It had disc brakes, bigger displacement and ranked among the top five powerful road bikes on sale then.

Another bike that ranks high amongst Moto Guzzi’s models is the V11 Le Mans. The bike is definitely a toy specifically suited to meet the needs of riders who love the power and speed of motor-sport racing. It rides on Ohlin’s suspensions and has Brembo Brake Calipers fitted at both ends. The V11 weighs 226 Kg and has a 1064 cc engine capable of 90 Horsepower and 69 pounds per feet of torque. It is a modern super-bike with an old school look. Its Digital electronic ignition engine can rev up to 8200 RPM .

At the center of Guzzi Moto’s outstanding engines lies the Moto Guzzi motorbike battery, an important component for all its combustion engines.

Greg C.

I just want to thank you for getting to my house so fast. The car didn’t want to start this morning and I needed to get to work. The guy who changed the battery was real friendly and I was able to get to work almost on time (only 12 minutes late).

Lana Wilkinson

Keero was really helpful over the phone. He asked a couple of questions and we figured out straight away that the problem was most likely a dead battery. Phil was in the area and arrived in less than 40 minutes. Got a new battery and I was back up and running again. Thanks guys.
