If you’ve never looked up the Moto Guzzi brand name, you should. Founders (and friends) Carlo Guzzi and Giorgio Parodi, served in the aeronautical arm of the Italian Royal Navy during World War I, with their story inspiring the rise of the Moto Guzzi name we know today.
“It was during the war that the two friends and the pilot Giovanni Ravelli decided to start manufacturing motorcycles once the conflict was over.” says a Moto Guzzi press release.
“Ravelli was killed in an accident in 1919 and could not fulfill his dream. Guzzi and Parodi chose the Eagle as a symbol in memory of their companion.
Today, Moto Guzzi is proud of the following goal: “Escape conventional categorization, combining brilliant performance with the vocation for travel that is at the heart of every Moto Guzzi two-wheeler.”
