History[edit]

Ghezzi & Brian was founded in 1995 by Giuseppe Ghezzi and Bruno (Brian) Saturno to develop racing motorcycles using twin-cylinder engines.

Starting in 1999, the company began to also sell motorcycles for street use. A fundamental characteristic of all the Ghezzi & Brian machines is sportiness and personality derived from Moto Guzzi V layout twin-cylinder engines.

The first model put in production is the SuperTwin 1100, derived from the Championship 1996 machine.

The Furia is a "sport naked".

The Pro-Thunder has been developed exclusively for the participation in the American A.M.A. Championship. It has a Moto Guzzi 1225 cc motor.
