Benelli turned 100 this week

Happy Birthday to Benelli a once made in Italy brand which is now like any global brand mostly Chinese made.
Next weekend Moto Guzzi now part of Piaggio Group turns 90 years old.

Piaggio founded in 1884
Malaguti and Moto Morini both 1930 now both on the edge of not coming back as brand.

At least we can celebrate Benelli a company who survived several downturns and is in its latest phase with QJ ownership (owners of Generic, Keeway Group, and Benelli Motorcycles)

 The motorcycles are still mostly made in Italy, but the scooters come 100% from China. If you need QJ parts and Benelli parts MRP has them
