When we were looking for new motorcycle trends, we drifted off a little again. As always. But we’re sure you know it - a little Instagram here, a little Facebook there and bam - an hour passed. But this time we are quite happy about it, because we stumbled upon the Facebook page of Officine Rossopuro. And we spent quite some time there.

The page is full of customized Moto Guzzis. One more beautiful than the other. When you ask Filippo Barbacane, the founder of Officine Rossopuro what persuaded him to do what he does, the word passion comes up again and again. The history of the design forge starts back in 1993. With creativity and for love of design Filippo Barbacane decides to turn his passion into a career and settles down in the region Abruzzen near Pescara. Another 5 years later the “Firestarter Garage” was founded. Customizing and design - typically italian with a touch of American influence.

From Enduro and Racer up to the Cafe Racer everything is being customized - well, customizing or complete design prototypes. Filippo has taste when it comes to beautiful and coherent shapes and one can see that immediately. The bikes appear authentic. No folderol. He likes to reduce - what’s left is the essence - the character of every single bike.

Since 2015 Officine Rossopuro has a new showroom - with more than 300 square meters. And yes, the shop of Filippo is on our trip list. Enough of the words for now, see for yourself. Enclosed are some snapshots of the two-wheelers from Pescara.

In southern Nepal, there is only one single highway heading east. We approach the Indian border and dive into the crowd again. We drive along the road; the sunset in the back, left and right the tea fields. The density of people is diminishing and we are passing through a village where a white person has never been seen before, at least according to the owner of the restaurant where we take our lunch...

KAWASAKI H2 SX – QUICKLY AT FULL BLAST

Published by MOTORRADMAGAZIN - Clemens Kopecky at 19 febbraio 2018 in Reviste
A motorcycle is only fast enough when you are standing in front of it and are afraid to get on. I personally am sincerely convinced of that. Because in addition to many practical, clever arguments, by means of which one tries to be convincing in a conversation with critics of the motorized two-wheeler, one particular property certainly makes motorcycles incredibly desirable to me: the sheer unreasonableness of their existence.
