Miguel Galluzzi’s Top 10 Favorite Motorcycles

This week’s Top 10 comes to us courtesy of Miguel Galluzzi. Mr. G is best known for designing Ducati’s original Monster and starting the modern naked-bike movement, but before that he also penned Ducati’s early ’90s 900 Supersports. He’s been a busy man ever since, and is currently director for PADC (Piaggio Advanced Design Center), in Pasadena, CA, where he – together with another design team in Noale, Italy – cooks up new Moto Guzzis, Aprilias and other Italian delicacies. —John Burns


I’ll tell you a story, maybe it will help us shorten the list. I grew up in a family that was involved in motorsports in Argentina since my grandfather raced Harleys and Hendersons in the 1920s and 30s. Because of that, my father and uncles were involved in many kinds of racing, from bicycles in the ’40s, motorcycles in the ’50s and ’60s to cars in the ’70s and ’80s. My upbringing was around machines with engines, two wheels or four, it didn’t matter.
