They’ve been trying to destroy us for 50 days, but the UA people are heroically resisting. We fear nothing, we know what we’re fighting for. We are brave enough to put an end to evil. Stop feeding the RU military machine. Help UA with weapons. Then peace & good will win faster. pic.twitter.com/WdDbZsvZ4e— Володимир Зеленський (@ZelenskyyUa) April 14, 2022
A Brief History of the Marque
Manufactured: 1926-1950 1
Founded in Modena by Vittorio Guerzoni whose first motorcycle was powered by a Train engine, Guerzoni partnered with Vittorio Bellentani to build the Moto Mignon. Later (1932-33) there was an associaton with Enzo Ferrari who commissioned a DOHC 500cc engine, after which they produced the quite famous Taurus, one of the very best Italian motorcycles of the day, by all accounts.
After the Second World War the MG company was acquired by the Bergamini brothers who built motorcycles of 250 and 500cc under the Centaurus brand.
1. Dates appear incorrect, as there is a Mignon dated 1923 in an Italian article.
