SWM at First European
1 December 2017
SWM are the Italian motorcycle manufacturer you’ve probably never heard of. Back in the 1970’s SWM made off-road competition bikes with some success culminating in winning the Italian 125cc motocross championship.
Production ceased in 1978 and the brand lay dormant until its revival by Apelio Macchi in 2014. The range of bikes now manufactured by SWM is headed by the 650 Superdual GT, which as its name implies is an adventure style motorcycle with Givi hard luggage and at a very competitive $12,990 (plus ORC) is carving itself a nice little niche within the Kiwi motorcycle market and it’s LAMS (learner) approved to boot. To accompany these bikes are a trail style bike and a very sexy looking Motard along with two smaller 440cc models, a retro style scrambler and a very well appointed café racer.
