Moto Guzzi: The V100 Mandello, fighter jet style

Back when we were covering motorcycles in “Top Gun: Maverick (2022),” we were looking at Team Green’s cute parts in a movie about planes.

Now we have a motorcycle whose special edition is literally inspired by the F-35B fighter jets of the Royal Italian Navy.

Want to try the brand that brought it to the motorcycling community proper?

“The event was an emotional occasion, which included the world premiere of the Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello Aviazione Navale, a special numbered limited edition of the latest addition to the Moto Guzzi family.”

“A tech-rich motorcycle made even more striking in this exclusive version bringing together two great names with inseparable ties to Italy’s history.”

The special Mandello comes in a fleet of 1,913 units (celebrating the founding year of the Royal Italian Navy), with insignia on both sides of the hood (9with the typical “water intake” stripes), a “low-visibility tricolor rosette on the sides of the fuel tank, the emblem of the Italian Naval Aviation and the logo of the embarked aircraft unit.”
