This Moto Guzzi special edition by Filippo Barbacane, called the “Coppa Acerbo” is based on the beautiful Moto Guzzi V11.
The ‘Coppa Acerbo’ name refers to a race that was held in Pescara, Italy, from 1924 to 1961, which was then renamed (Circuito di Pescara) as the creator of the race, Giacomo Acerbo, was a government minister during Italy’s fascist period.
The race was more than 25 kg long, and much of it was on a city track.
Barbacane dedicated the ‘Coppa Acerbo’ to this race, in a Guzzi which apparently disappeared from the sales list a few years ago.
This special edition Moto Guzzi features “Alpine” spoke wheels, hand-built chrome exhaust, aluminium front mud guards, and an Ergal transmission shaft.
The seat is wider than that of a classic V11 and the rear lights are also new.
This particular Moto Guzzi Coppa Acerbo has a few extra modifications from Rossopuro, specialists in Moto Guzzi accessories.
