Italian motorcycles are renowned for their pleasing aesthetics, innovative and elegant designs and superior performance. Italian motorcycles derive from a rich heritage passed down through generations. Marque brands such as Ducati, MV Agusta, Benelli, Piaggio, Aprilia, Moto Guzzi, and Vespa have held waved the Italian flag high for many years, delivering some of the most well-known motorcycles ever to have graced the road.
Moto Guzzi Le Mans
This cafe racer classic paced the pack in performance but defined itself by its styling. As a souped-up response to the trend towards increasing engine displacement, it looked light and sleek but the 71hp engine pushed this beast past 120mph.
A big fast bike, even for a company known for its big fast bikes, these were the strongest, fastest production cycles you could buy at the time. At 1000cc’s you’d expect power and speed, but with its iconic racing orange finish you also got an eyecatcher.
Ducati 900 SS
The bike that defined the 90’s for supersport cycles. Sleek, smooth lines, bold bright red, yellow, white and black full fairings along with ride-all-day comfort. Like Hunter S. Thompson said, “it looked like it was going 90 miles an hour when it was standing still.”
Lambretta LI 125
It takes something special to make a scooter iconic, but this little machine defined fun, zippy style in the 60’s. Sleek, art-deco styling made the Mods go mad.
