About GIVI

THE BEGINNING

GIVI began with a passion for motorcycles. The founder, Giuseppe Visenzi, was a talented Italian racer, winning the silver medal in the 1969 World Championship. After retiring from racing, his passion for motorcycles drove him to focus on improving the riding experience for other motorcycle lovers. He believed that motorcycles could be used for much more than racing and began to create products to encourage people to interact with their bikes in new and exciting ways. Working from a small factory in Brescia, Italy, he invented the first motorcycle top case, the GIVI E34, in 1983, thereby revolutionizing travel on two wheels and launching the modern day motorcycle accessories business. Since then, GIVI has continued to use the latest materials and technologies to create new and innovative products, always keeping the same goal in mind: to provide motorcyclists worldwide with a safe and enjoyable riding experience.



PRESENT DAY

Today, GIVI is a brand that requires no introduction, being both appreciated and recognized by motorcyclists throughout the world. From that first factory in Brescia, GIVI has expanded rapidly to have production centers on every major continent as well as a global distribution network that carries its products to motorcyclists all over the world. At the same time, the product catalogue has grown rapidly to include a wide range of hard cases, soft bags, windscreens, helmets and specific accessories that aim to meet motorcyclists’ every need. From the very first top case to the current catalogue of more than 2000 items, you can find the same three core principles at the root of each product: innovative technology, high quality materials and Italian design. Despite the company’s global expansion and vast international presence, Mr. Giuseppe Visenzi still personally manages all the activities from the headquarters in Brescia, Italy, and is still driven by the same determination and passion as that very first day.
