The 2016 Penrite Oil Broadford Bike Bonanza (PBBB) has gained a huge boost with the announcement that the extremely rare Moto Guzzi V8 will be appearing at the event.
The V8, which will feature in the Shannon's Moto Guzzi Marquee, will be started and ridden on the road track at selected times during the 2016 Easter weekend event, and will be the only opportunity for Australian fans to see it in action during its time in the country.
The bike coming to the Bonanza next year is owned by Giuseppe Todero, who is the son of designer and Giulio Carcano‰Ûªs right hand man in the development and execution of the V8, Umberto Todero.
Todero said he couldn't wait to make the trek out to Australia.
"I am so happy to be given this opportunity to come out to Australia with our friends and our special Moto Guzzis," Todero said. "I‰Ûªve heard a lot about this country, its people, its Grand Prix riders and the ‰Û÷hoppers‰Ûª.
"I want to meet the family of Keith Campbell, one of the Aussie riders of my bike too.‰Û
