IN VERONA THE EAGLE BRAND CELEBRATES ITS RETURN TO RACING WITH THE LAUNCH OF THE REGISTRATION CAMPAIGN FOR THE NEW MOTO GUZZI FAST ENDURANCE TROPHY. THE STAR OF THE MOTORCYCLE SHOW IS THE MOTO GUZZI V85TT, THE CLASSIC TRAVEL ENDURO, ON THE EVE OF ITS MARKET LAUNCH. ON THE APRILIA STAND, THE FOCUS IS ON UNCOMPROMISING RACING, WITH THE NEW 217 HP RSV4 1100 FACTORY.
Verona, 17 January 2019 – Today is the first day of the 2019 Motor Bike Expo, at the Veronafiere exhibition centre, until Sunday 20 January. An important event giving Moto Guzzi and Aprilia an opportunity to welcome into their world of passion, sport and authenticity a public sensitive to the many facets of the motorcycle world. The two Piaggio Group motorcycle brands are at Motor Bike Expo with their latest product entries, and that’s not all: a range of engagement activities are on offer for visitors, organised by the communities of followers of the two brands, Moto Guzzi The Clan and Aprilia #bearacer Club.
MOTO GUZZI. The Moto Guzzi stand is showing the V7 III Stone with the Racing Kit, which will be on the racetrack with the new mono-brand competition. In addition to the eagerly awaited V85 TT, space has also been made available for personalisation, with the exclusive special models created by the top Italian customizers and Moto Guzzi Garage accessories.
The Moto Guzzi exhibit (Hall 4) centres on the brand new Moto Guzzi Fast Endurance trophy, the easy mono-brand competition for everyone who wants to try their skills on the racetrack and experience the legendary atmosphere of the classic races, but in a youthful spirit of pure enjoyment. Coinciding with the Verona motor show, FMI and Moto Guzzi are unveiling full details about the trophy and opening the registration campaign; in the Moto Guzzi area visitors can also admire the V7 III Stone fitted out with the racing kit developed by Guareschi Moto, for people wanting to take part in the trophy. The Guareschi brothers, highly regarded Moto Guzzi outfitters, will illustrate all the features during a talk show on Saturday 19 January at 11 a.m.
Also present, of course, is the eagerly awaited Moto Guzzi V85 TT, the first classic travel enduro, which promises to open up new horizons for Guzzi bikers, accompanied by the V7 III Stone Night Pack, the V7 III Rough and the “bad” V9 Bobber Sport. The passion for customisation is celebrated with a superlative range of original accessories from Moto Guzzi Garage, which, for the duration of the Motor Bike Expo, can be ordered in the Moto Guzzi area with a special 20% discount on the list price.
The Moto Guzzi stand is completed with a number of outstanding special models, dramatically modified by some of the top customizers, notably the V7 interpreted by Officine Rossopuro and the V7 from South Garage for the Proraso brand.
THE CLAN COMMUNITY. Community fans can collect the exclusive Eagle gadgets from the The Clan desk (while stocks last). All Moto Guzzi owners who show a The Clan card at the stand shop will have a 20% discount on lifestyle items and official merchandising. The Clan Winter Pack: Dry Bag, Historic Moto Guzzi Jersey and leather Gloves at a special price (while stocks last).
APRILIA. The RSV4 1100 Factory, the fastest, most powerful and lightest bike ever, is the standard bearer for Aprilia’s incomparable sporting pedigree, supported by other thrilling new products, including the hypernaked Tuono V4 1100 Factory with electronic suspension, and the RS 660, an exciting concept created to meet the needs of the new generations of motorcyclists.
On the Aprilia stand (Hall 6), the spotlight is on uncompromising performance: the undisputed protagonist is the new Aprilia RSV4 1100 Factory, the latest evolution of the 7-times world champion superbike, powered by a new 1078 cc V4 engine to deliver a top power of 217 hp. A superlative weapon on the racetrack, flanked by the hypernaked Tuono V4 1100 Factory, featuring the most advanced electronic suspension system currently on the market.
A different interpretation of Aprilia racing is presented in the shape of the futuristic RS 660 Concept, representative of a new concept in performance that combines exuberant but easy-to-manage engine capability, a chassis of absolute excellence and the light weight of the two-wheeler. Noale’s highly regarded twin cylinders, the eclectic Dorsoduro 900 and the versatile Shiver 900, are on display too, in the new colour for 2019, Challenging Red.
MBE also provides an opportunity to find out everything about the upcoming Aprilia Racers Days 2019 season (information from the special area on the stand), when bikers will be able to try out the new RSV4 1100 and Tuono V4 1100 on Italy's most exciting race-tracks, free of charge.
