In 1921, Italian bike designers Carlo Guzzi and Giorgio Parodi founded a company they named Moto Guzzi. Their first motorcycle, the Normal, was actually created in 1920, one year before the company was officially formed, and hit the assembly line in 1922. The 500cc model quickly gained popularity and helped the company get a firm foothold in the motorcycle market.
The next several years were marked by other important launches. In 1928, Moto Guzzi released the GT tour, followed by the Sport 15 in 1931, the Condor in 1938 and the Dondolino in 1940. The most prominent model, however, was the Falcone, which arrived in 1950 and was updated several times until 1976, when it was removed from production.
The company kept working on new models in 1967, when it released the V7. In 1979, Moto Guzzi launched a revamped version of the bike, dubbed the V7 Special. In a couple of years, it came up with an even larger 844cc engine, which powered the famous 850 Le Mans.
Although the company seemed to flourish and kept rolling out new improved models, Motto Guzzi was heading into a financial trouble. Eventually, the company was purchased by Alejandro De Tomaso.
In 1992, the manufacturer premiered the Daytona 1000 bike featuring a 992cc engine, which was considered one of its most advanced creations. However, lack of funding prevented Moto Guzzi from updating the vehicle and continuing the development.
Things started to look up after the company was bought out by Aprilia, which paid $65 million for its expertise and achievements, allowing Moto Guzzi to resume its work on new models. In 2004 and 2005, for instance, the Italian bike maker introduced two advanced motorcycles, the Breva 750 and the Breva 1100.
