The V50 in General

When De Tomaso took over Moto Guzzi in 1973, he brought over his own views on how the firm should act in order to avoid the financial dead end. Noticing that the previous management was stuck in producing only big twins with increased manufacturing cost, he instructs Lino Tonti (the firm's very capable chief engineer) to develop and produce smaller capacity twinsin order to cover that gap in the market, emphasizing in reducing costs through new production methods and automations, available at the Innocenti factory, also owned by the group.

This way, the V50 emerged in 1975, the V50 II in 1977, both models with small production capacity, and in 1979 the V50 III with full capacity. Despite the split crankcase, gearbox mounted swingarm, heron type combustion chamber etc, costs were not low enough to match the competition from Far East, therefore although its handling, brakes, low weight, reliability were positively received, it didn't achieve the sales volume intended.

The factory also launched many versions adapted for public services, and the bikes  "served" them quite successfully.

Today it is one of the easiest to use, timeless and economical choices for entering the classic Moto Guzzi world.

A few words about the motorcycle on sale

It is a 1981 model, and was purchased for restoring it following many years of standstill in Athens centre. It was restored in detail and using original spares, while the engine was also extensively inspected and serviced. For its painting, the combination used for Italian state versions was chosen.

It can readily be registered as classic bike.
