ok eccovi il testo dell’intervista in

You’re familiar with Galluzzi’s work, even if you recognize his name. He created the Ducati Monster and, recently as Piaggio’s vice of design, penned both the Dorsoduro and RSV4. Now, been tasked with Moto Guzzi for the 21st

We sat down with him at the 90-year old in Mandello del Lario and talked where Guzzi is going.

A with a history.

“The of the first Le Mans is something someone who is into motorcycling can not The V7 Sport, those kind of they stay in your forever. To me Guzzi represents a of very dynamic sport is not the same as what we see today in The riding you do with a Guzzi you enjoy the landscape while having fun at the same time, but having to slide the knees on the

Guzzi under Piaggio.

first project when I got to was the Dorsoduro. That was the first designed for Piaggio with me as the Then, the big project at the time was the That took a lot of time and to get this thing with a beautiful engine done, but we got a superbike that was able to win a Championship its second season.”

that moment on, Piaggio’s decided to concentrate everything in one center in Pontedara for the scooters and one center in Noale, where is, for the motorcycles. So, we have been on the two brands and now we are very, very on Guzzi.”

Designing for the present.

“When we do we have to understand what we are We are choosing to go in a very, not simple, but forward way for Guzzi. Because has always been like

You don’t need to get too fancy, you need to get too technological like does. Aprilia is the top of the technology, has to keep a certain tradition, one to the enjoyment of riding a motorcycle.”

V7 Racers, that was the first we really did for Guzzi. We saw at the Milan the reaction from people ‘Wow, that’s pretty So, we thought of making 150. sales are coming from all the world. It became a huge

“We had a lot of aftermarket parts we wanted to so the Centro Stile, we said, don’t we do a special bike and put all the on it and get the feeling of a classic Guzzi. remembers this tradition, it is not the of superbikes that we have

“We were looking this at the V7 Sport from the ‘70s and we that this was the first to reach the 200kmh mark. It was the superbike. But, look at we have today, something wrong.

If we were able to that much fun at the time, why are we the stuff we do now? So, the V7 Racer and other things we are working on in direction are going back to feeling.”

“We need very little to enjoy a ride on a motorcycle. few things. We know there is craziness about cafe right now, but we are thinking Guzzi as the simplest way to have fun on a and that is going to create its own It’s not going to be retro, not going to be vintage, it’s to be something that is Guzzi all the

“On the other hand, we are working on the the real future. Guzzi is to go through a new engine, go through a new of performance. The motorcycle technology works attached to the motorcycle department, which is one of the best in the All these energies are getting in order to create a new Guzzi as you’re seeing, a new Aprilia.”

are very exciting times for For the first time, we have the we have the people and we have the to do the project, so we are working very on that.”

The first new products of the new Guzzi.

“We presented in February the new which everybody saw, I’m on the Internet. That was a mockup, but now we have the first prototypes We are thinking variations on the same so we will not only have the From that moment on, we are into a new engine that is to be the future for Guzzi for the next 10

“That’s going to be a lot of fun because we are not concentrating on making nice bikes, but everyone knows weight is a big problem. A big, big Especially with all the laws we to comply with in order to motorcycles. We’ve got a lot of electronics and so bikes are becoming really

Our goal now is to try and go in the other direction losig all these technologies gained over the last 10 That’s our new challenge for Guzzi.”

new California will have a engine. The Guzzi engine need a big displacement to have high torque, so we are going to a lot of fun with this bike. like having a big block in a motorcycle. Production of the California begin around the end of 2012.”

execs displayed this on the new engine during a recent conference.

“We are also working on a new that will be lighter and The new Guzzi product range is to be simpler. We are going to have the displacement (750cc) as we always we are going to have something in the that is going to be 1,200 or and we are going to have the big block. these three lines of we are going to work to develop new

The middle is going to be a big middle. is about big torque engines, is not going to be a small displacement, like that.”

The importance of color.

“We are going a time of color blindness. want things in black or and, if they do choose a they go for grey. Working for and Guzzi, we don’t think that. We try to push new colors and the Stelvio is a good example.”

I that orange Stelvio some dirt roads in the It was a bit top heavy for the rough stuff, but it looked nice.

“Having on concentrating on the two brands and having center in Noale, Aprilia has long history with and finish and whatnot. This is the direction of Guzzi. So, the experimentation colors that used to be for Guzzi is going ahead. The orange was intended for another of vehicle, but we tried it on the Stelvio and this is great.

And now it’s the selling Stelvio, because of the Color can make the bike be better.”

“The way we decide the is a big process that starts two years before the bike into production. We have an with people from the world and look at the trends of We try to be as close to the fashion world as it is to get, but we first have to the colors to see if they work.

In the of the Stelvio and Griso, the colors developed way ahead of production they are very special that need a special Experience with Aprilia with this development.”

Guzzi and Aprilia under one

“The concentration of all these in one place, in this technical has made the Guzzi and Aprilia have very good Not only that, but the whole from the first piece of the to the last bolt and nut, are as a whole.”

“The new Norge and eight valves are the first that the technical center has care of and everyone is saying this is a big improvement to what has had in the past. There are a whole of people, very professional taking care of these Not only on design and making bikes, but also in the mechanics.”

The NTX.

“We had the possibility of making a big bike. That was the idea it. We already had a very freeway-oriented in the Stelvio, so the actual NTX prototype was not civilized. It had big knobbie tires and

But, in the end, that was not to do. But, we didn’t lose the that, when you see it, you know you go around the world. No matter nobody’s going to stop With a 32-liter tank, now you can all over the world without for gas.”

The new Norge.

“Everyone the new Norge is the same bike as But, if I tell you that we everything, you wouldn’t believe it. But what we’ve done, The fairing looks the same, but the thing we kept was the interior of the The bike is completely new.

We not only improved the engine and the of the engine — we now have the oil-cooler, makes the engine run more — but even the riding position was Even the possibility of having a which is softer and more

“We were surprised because, we got the Norge two and a half years it was not a great bike. Now, here fights to get one because it is a you can really enjoy riding. We are better bikes for everyone to
