Motogiro D’Italia: 20th - 24th May 2007


If you're a vintage/classic bike enthusiast, the Motogiro D'Italia is an absolute must-attend!

The oldest long-distance motorcycle roadracing event in Italy – the Motogiro D’Italia – is scheduled to take place from the 20th to the 24th of May, in 2007. The first Motogiro D’Italia was held back in 1914, was resurrected in the 1950s and then re- resurrected in 2001. It’s been held every year since then and today, it’s an important event for vintage motorcycle enthusiasts the world over.

Participants in the 2007 Motogiro D’Italia will start from central Italy and head towards Sicily in southern Italy, where they will have the opportunity to ride on some of the most beautiful roads in Europe. The route will comprise of five legs of about 250km each.

Enthusiasts, collectors and ex-racers will take part and hundreds of vintage and classic bikes are expected to be there for the event. All the names from Italy’s golden age of motorcycling – Ducati, Morini, MV Agusta, Moto Guzzi, Benelli, Bianchi, Piaggio, Gilera, and Motobi among others – will be represented at the event, though Ducati are the prime event sponsors.

The Motogiro is open to all motorcycles and all marques authorized for road use, and the event is divided into three classes – Vintage Racing class (for bikes up to 175cc, manufactured prior to 1957), Taglioni Memorial class (street-legal bikes, 350cc or higher, produced between 1968 and 1978), and the non-competitive Touring class, open to all bikes.
