Three Special Editions
2021 V85TT Centenario
From 0 to 100
15 March 1921 was a momentous date in the world of motorbikes as it marked the beginning of a seemingly outrageous idea, that proved, however, to be brilliantly visionary. It was the creation of Moto Guzzi, an extraordinary bike that was light years ahead of the rest of the world when it came to motorcycle manufacturing. But it wasn’t only performance that set Moto Guzzi apart, there was also the striking, elegant colour and its glorious form, inspired by legends of motorcycling history. Now, one hundred years later, the Moto Guzzi concept of the motorbike lifestyle is as compelling and beloved as ever.
Arriving This Spring!
NEW MOTO GUZZI V7
More than fifty years after the launch of its first unit, Moto Guzzi is proud to present a new and important evolution in the history of the V7, a prominent symbol of Italian motorbikes around the world. The revamping is so profound that the progressive numbering in Roman numerals, which had characterised the various evolutions of the model since its return to the market in 2007, is gone. But the character and authenticity remain intact, as these values are destined to last over time and embedded in the genetic code of every Moto Guzzi.
New Moto Guzzi engine
It has 25% more maximum power, going from the previous 52 hp at 6200 rpm to the current 65 hp at 6800 rpm. Maximum torque has also increased significantly, going from 60 Nm at 4250 rpm to the outstanding value of 73 Nm at 5000 rpm, with more than 80% of the torque already available at 3000 rpm.
A new Moto Guzzi engine makes its début on the new V7, a close derivative of the one that powers the V85 TT. This is the most recent and modern drive built in Mandello, which guarantees better performance and overall greater efficiency in order to provide maximum riding pleasure, fun and reliability.
Compared to the previous version, the new addition from Mandello is generally more complete in terms of equipment and demonstrates superior maturity, also evident in the aesthetic impact of the larger engine, which stands out for its generously sized exhaust pipes in a different layout; the view from the rear highlights the larger cardan final drive and the wider rear wheel, as well as the more robust pair of Kayaba shock absorbers.
The frame has been evolved with the addition of steel elements in the headstock area, whereas the new pair of shock absorbers with greater travel and the new, two-tier saddle ensure greater comfort. With this same goal in mind, brand new rider footpeg support are used

Bethel motorcycle shop its own destination
Dirk Perrefort, Updated 9:34 pm, Friday, June 20, 2014
In less than two months, Hamlin Cycles on Grassy Plain Street is already becoming a destination for members of the motorcycle community. That’s because owner Jim Hamlin has been in the business selling and outfitting motorcycles for more than two decades. During that time, Hamlin, who specializes in several motorcycle brands including Triumph and Moto Guzzi, developed a growing customer base that will drive from Buffalo and beyond for his services
Bethel shop bucks recent trends

One new motorcycle dealership in Connecticut does not make a trend, but after several years of witnessing dealers vanish, it’s certainly pleasing to be able to write about the opening of Hamlin Cycles.
Jim Hamlin’s store at 44 Grassy Plain St. (Route 53) in Bethel began welcoming riders last Saturday and expects to begin selling Triumph motorcycles within a month, once a franchise application gets approved.
Hamlin Cycles’ debut ends a string of closures within the past five years that includes Willow’s Motorsports in Cheshire, Canton Cycles in Winsted, Midtown Kawasaki in Rocky Hill, Fritz’s Bridgeport Harley-Davidson in Stratford and Branchville Motors in Ridgefield.
