Eerik Oja receiving the first Moto Guzzi V88 TT Centenario in South Africa

Moto Guzzi, one of the world's oldest motorcycle brands, turned 100 in March this year. The Italian manufacturer has decided to launch a centenary livery on their V7 and V85 TT models to celebrate. To make it even more special, the Centenario colour scheme will only be applied to 2021 bikes.

Italian Motorcycle Importers (IMI), the local distributor of Moto Guzzi and Aprilia, has established a reputation for ensuring that we don't miss out on special models locally. The Centenario models are no exception. The first of these - a V85 TT - arrived in Moto Guzzi's showroom in Bryanston on 6 April. Joburg resident Eerik Oja has the distinction of being the first South African to own a Centenario model.
