Despite being a little town, Mandello del Lario boasts a long motorcycling history.

The Moto Guzzi brand continues today to produce motorcycles with an unmistakable personality that are still very popular internationally.
Over the years, the unbridled rush of the winged eagle brand has made Mandello famous all over the world and has created a fertile ground for the success of other local companies.

These include Lafranconi Silenziatori, that designs and produces exhaust pipes for motorcycles and tractors of various brands; and Gilardoni Cilindri, that has been manufacturing chrome barrel cylinders since 1957 and its high quality product can be found in a wide range of vehicles.
