Moto Guzzi GT Norge (replica by Moto Agostini), 2000, Italy
The bike kept in the museum is the replica of a Moto Guzzi GT Norge, built in the late 20s.
Also known as “the bike of the feat” the Moto Guzzi GT was the protagonist of a successful raid done by Giuseppe Guzzi in 1928, who left Mandello and arrived in North Cape after 28 days, burning 182 liters of gasoline and three tires. Honoring this trip, the model was named Norge after the famous airship that explored the arctic region.
The GT was the first bike using an elastic frame and offered a more comfortable ride to the driver, without compromising stability. The engine was a 4-stroke single cylinder and the gearbox had 3 speeds.
