The Moto Guzzi Magni MG (or Le Mans 1000) was born in 1985 from the collaboration between Moto Guzzi and Magni. Magni wanted an all-Italian bike, and this is why the choice fell on Guzzi engines. The MG has integral fairing, modern lines and rear parallelogram suspension system. This new system eliminates all the reactions induced by the transmission; the motorbike has cardan final drive yet all the driving features of a chain drive. The bike also has an extra-large 40 mm B 10 carburettor and a camshaft derived from racing models. The forks are stronger and the semi-floating discs smaller (270 mm).
