We are pleased to announce the iconic Italian SWM brand of motorcycles (on road and off-road) has joined us as a website sponsor in addition to being an event sponsor for the annual Auto Icons Event in Carlton.
Mojo Motorcycles were appointed the Australian distributors in late 2015 and now intend to market their range of bikes nationally. SWM bikes have a long history and success with Endurance races.
This Sunday’s Italian Auto Icons event they will be displaying 7 of their newest SWM models. Superstar rider Ryan Taylor will be present with his SWM 500SM machine.
We look forward to working closely with SWM and the team at Mojo Motorcycles in developing their brands in Australia.
THE SWM STORY
SWM was formed in Milan, Italy in 1971 by two off-road racers. The model range initially consisted of 3 models – 50cc, 100cc, 125cc with Sachs engines. The company enjoyed success in off road racing claiming the 125cc Italian Motocross title and a bronze medal in the European 125cc Endurance class. The company went on to produce a range of motorcycles until it ceased production in 1984.
In the early Seventies, during the now denominated Endurance races, the fabulous Italian 4stroke bikes started to struggle competing against the more powerful foreign 2stroke. To face this merging hegemony, two riders and friends with the same passion for off-road decided to build their own motorcycle, establishing SWM, that stands for Speedy Working Motors.
