Introduced in the mid-Seventies as an evolution of the V7 Sport, the 850 Le Mans is one of the most renowned Moto Guzzis of all time.
The development of the model was closely bound up with the concluding chapters of the firm’s works racing team. The features conceived for endurance races were in fact incorporated in a model presented as a “race-ready” production bike.
The immediate success with the public, who appreciated the performance of the V-twin engine, consecrated the 850 Le Mans as the finest Italian sports bike of the period.
It enjoyed a relatively long career that was to conclude with the controversial 1000 cc version, as enjoyable for its engine as it was disappointing in its chassis.
A flat end to a career that took nothing away from the overall prestige of the model, still today considered to be a legend by the enthusiasts of Italian sports bikes around the world.
This is because the Le Mans is a rare combination of performance, versatility and mechanical robustness, with most of the examples built between 1976 and 1993 are still on the road today after having covered grand tourer mileages.
