THE PIAGGIO GROUP AT EICMA 2022
THE PIAGGIO GROUP IS A PROTAGONIST AT EICMA 2022 AS THE MAJOR REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ITALIAN TWO-WHEELER INDUSTRY
THERE IS NEWS FOR ALL THE BRANDS IN THE GROUP, WHICH COMPRISES THE EXCELLENCE OF ‘MADE IN ITALY’. FOR EACH BRAND A RESPONSE TO MEET THE INCREASINGLY DIVERS AND DEMANDING MOBILITY REQUESTS OF THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE, THE RESULT OF THE VISION AND GREAT INVESTMENTS IN INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY THE PIAGGIO GROUP HAS PUT IN PLAY
The Piaggio Group arrives at EICMA consolidating its position as top European and Italian two-wheeler group. At 30 September 2022, the Group had sold 490,400 vehicles all over the world (including 410,000 two-wheeled vehicles), recording a turnover of €1,626.9 million and net profits of €70.9 million, the highest values ever in the reference period. In the first months of 2022, the Piaggio Group confirmed and consolidated its leadership in Europe in the scooter segment with a share of 23.5% and it further reinforced its position in the North American scooter market, reaching a share of 34.9%.
The scooter sector increased to double digits in global sales, driven particularly by the Vespa brand, which recorded turnover increasing to double digits and the record sales volume for the period, and by the Aprilia brand scooters.
The motorcycle segment was also extremely positive: both Aprilia and Moto Guzzi filed record sales in the first nine months of the year with the highest ever volumes and profits, thanks in part to the significant popularity of the new Aprilia 660 units (RS, Tuono and Tuareg) and the Moto Guzzi V7 and V85 TT.
The iconic Piaggio Group brands accepted the challenge of a changing world, introducing a vast offer of vehicles capable of meeting any mobility needs.

Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello
Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello opens an entirely new chapter in Moto Guzzi history; a bike that shuns being catalogued in a specific category, combining agility on curvy routes with the innate travel vocation that every Moto Guzzi has; a door that opens up to the future of the brand thanks to the innovative technical and aerodynamic solutions implemented. V100 Mandello is innovative starting with its design which, as always, begins with the enhancement of its unique and inimitable twin-cylinder. A turning point in the brand’s history, leading to the introduction of extremely significant technological innovations: the very first motorcycle to offer adaptive aerodynamics, and the first Moto Guzzi to be equipped with advanced electronic solutions such as the six-axis inertial platform, cornering ABS, semi-active suspension and the quick shift, to cite just a few of the most important features. And it is the first Moto Guzzi to be powered by the new “compact block” engine, with its refined technical characteristics. Tradition is respected with the 90° transverse V architecture of the twin, which guarantees that unique torque delivery and inimitable Moto Guzzi sound, but the project is in fact all new and boasts decidedly brilliant performance: it has 115 HP at 8,700 rpm and maximum torque of 105 Nm at 6,750 rpm, with 82% available already at 3,500 rpm and the limiter set at an amazing 9,500 rpm. Its sporty character is supported by a compact and agile chassis architecture, whereas Its touring attitude is boosted thanks to the significant comfort that the generous saddle and active, relaxed riding position afford. Moto Guzzi technology contributes to increasing both comfort and air protection thanks to the electrically adjustable top fairing and with the adoption (for the first time in the world) of an adaptive aerodynamics system that automatically adjusts the position of deflectors on the sides of the litre tank depending on the speed and selected Riding Mode. The electronics package is first-rate, comprising the Ride by Wire electronic accelerator for precise performance and consumption control, the advanced Marelli 11MP ECU, the six-axis inertial platform for effective management of the electronic controls, cruise control, and Cornering ABS to ensure active safety when braking through the turns. Four Riding Modes are available, namely Touring, Sport, Rain, and Road. Each of these manages three different engine mappings, four levels of traction control, three levels of engine brake and (in the version that introduces them as standard) also calibration of the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension , which can adapt automatically, minute by minute, to suit the type of riding and the road conditions, for the best possible bike behaviour in any situation.
Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Special Edition
The V7 is one of the most beloved and best-selling Moto Guzzis; it is authentic and rich in character and it is the representative of the classic Italian motorcycle par excellence. The V7 Stone Special Edition is the first brand new proposal of the V7 Stone with a decidedly dynamic character. It forsakes the matte shades typical of the Stone version – the most contemporary of the V7 family – to flaunt a special Shining Black colour scheme, enhanced on the tank with graphics and red details that recall the style traits of the Eagle brand’s sportiest models. A sports attitude that is also highlighted by the red painted shock springs and the contrasting red stitching of the saddle, also specific to this unique model. A plate on the handlebar riser identifies its special edition status. This equipment package also includes the “bar end” rear view mirrors and the anodised black billet aluminium fuel cap. Customisation even extends to the Moto Guzzi 850 twin, complete with head covers in a brand-new graphite colour and throttle body protections in black anodised aluminium.
The more ‘muscular’ look is emphasised by the Arrow exhaust system with Moto Guzzi tailpipes, thanks to which the Moto Guzzi V7 Stone Special Edition gains in performance, both in terms of power, which climbs from 48 to 49 kW (66.5 CV) at 6700 rpm, and maximum torque, which grows from 73 to 75 Nm at 4900 rpm.
Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Special Edition
This is the special version of V9 Bobber, the sporty custom from Moto Guzzi that introduced the medium displacement bobber genre, characterised by the almost entirely total black of every components and wide oversize tyres that guarantee ample contact with the ground, just like the ones mounted on the motorcycles in the second post war era in the States which race on fast dirt tracks. The V9 Bobber Special Edition equipment package is a true custom job and boasts, first and foremost, special Workshop twin-tone black and grey colour scheme that enhances the metal teardrop fuel tank (which has a billet aluminium cap) and it also extends to the aluminium side panels. The bar-end mirrors mounted at the ends of the handlebar, along with the fork seals and the short front mudguard complete the equipment, amplifying the truly high sensation of perceived quality. The unmistakeable sound of the Moto Guzzi 850 twin cylinder is highlighted by the street-legal slip-on exhaust painted matte black, with the bottom in aluminium and characterised in the terminal part by a sleek, oblique shape.
