California dealership to host European sport bike festival
Los Angeles-area dealership Pro Italia Motorcycles is celebrating its 25th anniversary on Sunday by hosting Café Desmo, California’s annual Italian Bike Show and Street Festival.
A range of European naked bikes, Ducatis, Aprilias, Moto Guzzis, MV Agustas, Triumphs and café racers will be on display at Café Desmo on Sunday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at Pro Italia Motorcycles in Glendale. Café Desmo is free and open to the public.
“Café Desmo has grown into one of the most incredible events in the country for motorcycle fans to spend quality time with like-minded enthusiasts,” said Pro Italia dealer principal Bill Nation. “It’s a fusion of diverse populations with a shared passion for bikes, celebrated in a collegial environment.”
Pro Italia Motorcycles is uniting thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts with hundreds of incredible bikes, racing celebrities, bike-related vendors, LA’s hottest food trucks, raffles, giveaways and grand prizes.
Cash prizes and custom trophies will be awarded to the top three bikes in each category: Italian Superbikes, Italian Supersports / Sport Classics, European Naked Bikes, Café Racers — including British, Japanese and American, Italian Vintage and British Vintage (pre-1987).
To mark the opening of Pro Italia Triumph in October, Pro Italia Motorcycles is offering an exceptional prize — a Triumph Steve McQueen Special Edition bike. Raffle tickets are $10 and proceeds go to the American Red Cross.
