The Nicolis Museum in Verona will be present from 18 to 20 June at Motor Bike Expo 2021, the largest exhibition dedicated to the customisation of motorbikes, involving all sectors: from street to racing, from off-road to adventouring. An unmissable appointment for all enthusiasts.
Thanks to the exceptional contribution of the Nicolis, the exhibition will be enriched by a precious Bianchi “Freccia Oro” from 1933, which will be taken out of the museum for the occasion. The Freccia Oro, elegant in design, with careful attention to detail and an excellent price-quality ratio for the time, was a real sales success, also guaranteed by the possibility of driving it without a number plate and licence.
The Nicolis is a member of the Consorzio Lago di Garda Veneto, which promotes the eastern shore of Lake Garda, the so-called Riviera degli Olivi, which runs from Peschiera del Garda to Malcesine, and its immediate hinterland around Verona.
Noteworthy technical features included a three-speed manual gearbox, operated by a lever mounted on the frame next to the fuel tank. The tank had a capacity of 7 litres and allowed the Freccia d’Oro to cover almost 280 km on a full tank. Only one instrument was available to the rider: the ammeter on the front headlight. Maximum power of 6.5 hp allowed it to reach a speed of 80km/h. With this motorbike, Bianchi became the largest Italian manufacturer of light motorbikes.
Visitors will be able to admire this magnificent specimen at the Stand of the Consorzio Lago di Garda Veneto hosted by the Veneto Region.
A unique opportunity to retrace the history of the motorbike with 100 rare pieces: the first velocipedes, the first scooter, the first generation motorbikes, the recent breathtaking racing bikes. A route for enthusiasts, for romantics, for experts, for those who dream of Easy Rider or love the thrills of the track.
Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy and with its breathtaking landscapes and suggestive panoramas it is an enchanting destination for lovers of two wheels. It is included in the main motorcycling itineraries for the charm of its coastline, the suggestion of the hills that surround it and the grandeur of the mountains that overlook it: in just a few kilometres a multitude of environments that make this area unmissable.
The Nicolis Museum, just a 10-minute drive from the fair, will be open to the public for the entire duration of the fair from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. non-stop (on the remaining days it will be open by appointment for groups of 35 or more with a guided tour). All those who present their Motor Bike Expo ticket at the Museo Nicolis ticket office during the days of the event will be granted special treatment (3 euro discount on the full ticket and free admission for children up to 10 years old).The museum is pet friendly.
