Didi Group, the official distributor of the Moto Guzzi brand in Malaysia, has recently introduced the groundbreaking Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello. This new model boasts an array of record-breaking technologies: it is the world’s first motorcycle to feature adaptive aerodynamics, the first Moto Guzzi equipped with semi-active suspension, inertial platform, cornering ABS, and quick shift functionality. The V100 Mandello introduces a modern and sophisticated compact block engine, a twin with impressive performance that embodies the renowned Moto Guzzi character. This motorcycle is designed to be a versatile all-rounder, offering a compact and sporty yet comfortable riding experience that combines the agility of a roadster with the touring capabilities of a tourer.
“We are proud to launch the Moto Guzzi V100 in Malaysia as part of Piaggio Asia Pacific’s regional media test ride program, showcasing not only the new V100 Mandello but also Malaysia to the attending regional press,” stated Mr. Rewi Hamid Bugo, Chairman of Didi Group. Moto Guzzi celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2021, and rather than simply marking a prestigious milestone, the company sees it as a foundation upon which to build its next century of history. Moto Guzzi envisions a future of crafting magnificent motorcycles that are authentic and bold in character, catering to both Guzzisti enthusiasts and those aspiring to become part of the Moto Guzzi family. These modern motorcycles exemplify charm while incorporating cutting-edge technology to ensure both enjoyment and safety. Proudly manufactured in Italy at the Mandello del Lario factory, which remains the epicenter of Moto Guzzi’s passion, these legendary production facilities are set to undergo an ambitious restructuring and expansion project in the coming years. The aim is to create an open location that fosters a shared passion for the eagle brand, incorporating an industrial vision focused on environmental sustainability, efficient resource utilization, and the delicate balance of tradition, engineering, and design.
The Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello represents a bold step towards the future, symbolizing the beginning of the second century for Moto Guzzi. As tradition dictates, the name “100” not only signifies the previous century but also represents the modern new engine’s size, serving as the foundation for a series of next-generation motorcycles to be unveiled in the coming years. Starting from a blank canvas and with unrestricted creative freedom, Moto Guzzi has created a bike that embodies both innovation and unmistakable style. It seamlessly combines the traditional Moto Guzzi values of sport and travel into a single vehicle. Thus, the V100 Mandello ushers in a new chapter by redefining the sport-touring segment with its innovative approach and fresh perspective. It cleverly blends the compact dimensions and dynamic sporty riding characteristics of top-notch roadsters with the comfort and protection expected from a touring bike, thanks to its advanced technology and aerodynamic solutions. The V100 Mandello stands out for its originality, defying classification as a mere compromise and instead representing the ultimate synthesis of categories that were previously considered diametrically opposed.
The two versions of the V100 Mandello, namely the Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello and the Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello S, differ in terms of graphics and content. While the standard V100 Mandello comes packed with a comprehensive set of equipment, the Mandello S takes the level of equipment and technology to even greater heights. Both versions prioritize character and authenticity, exhibiting a timeless design that combines elegance and sportiness. This enduring design aims to transcend passing trends. Just like all Moto Guzzi motorcycles, the V100 Mandello’s design highlights the unique and unmistakable engine, but with a forward-thinking twist that breathes modernity into the brand.
V100 Mandello & V100 Mandello S is now available from all MotoPlex and Welly Sg Buloh. The selling price for V100 Mondello is from RM99,900 & Modello S is from RM117,900.
