ASI MotoShow is ready to start again for the special edition of the twentieth anniversary, scheduled from 6 to 8 May 2022 at the “Riccardo Paletti” racetrack in Varano de ‘Melegari. After two years of off engines due to the health emergency, the event of the Automotoclub Storico Italiano will bring the history of world motorcycling back to the track, from its origins to today: thousands of motorcycles and enthusiasts are ready to invade the paddocks of the Emilian circuit , where you can admire thematic exhibitions, meet the great champions of all times and where you will experience the magical atmosphere of the most genuine motorcycling.
The partnership between ASI and Yamaha has been reconfirmed, present at the MotoShow 2022 with its official competition bikes and with the riders who have signed the sporting successes of the Japanese manufacturer. First of all, the now legendary YZR M1 used by Valentino Rossi – in his unmistakable Abarth livery – to conquer the third step of the podium at the 2007 Australian GP.
This bike – together with the 1969 TR2 and the TZ 750, also for the grand prix – will be exhibited in the ASI stand at the traditional Mostra Scambio in Novegro (Milan) from 18 to 20 February. In addition to these three Yamaha spearheads, there will also be a “centenary” Indian Twin 7HP from 1912 and, during the show, the activities of ASI MotoShow 2022 will be previewed.
Among the many initiatives already planned, we can mention the theme “100×100” and the ambitious “Charge of 101”. The first, by the ASI Centennial Vehicle Sector, provides for the gathering of one hundred specimens over a hundred years old. The second, which will be led by the Florentine Vintage Motorcycle Club, is dedicated to the one hundred plus years of Moto Guzzi. At ASI MotoShow 2022, the centaurs of the “Orange Cloud” are also expected with the parade of the “750s” of the Laverda Team, the “Challenge of the fifties”, the World Classic Racing Team with the selection of the most famous GP bikes from ‘ 50 to the 80s.
