SWM Motorcycles is a new motorcycle Company inspired by the past, originated from the passion and the technical and industrial competence of Ampelio Macchi and Daxing Gong. Ampelio Macchi, creator of the history of prestigious Italian brands as Cagiva, Husqvarna and Aprilia where he was the technical manager and obtained 51 World titles, 46 with Husqvarna and 5 with Aprilia; Daxing Gong, successful Chinese businessman leader of the majestic Shineray Group that operates in two wheels and four wheels vehicles, industrial products for agriculture and electricity generators.
Two opposite worlds put together by the same vision and the same will of building high quality motorcycles with an Italian soul, identifiable as time goes by, in a state of the art headquarters and with support of an experienced technical staff grown in a territory rich of motorcycle history and driven by a great motivation.
The encounter between Ampelio Macchi and Daxing Gong has been almost accidental, but the mutual understanding was immediate. Locked by the same love for motorcycles and the identical dream to build a new motorcycle centre in the heart of Europe, a solid centre with wise but ambitious plans.
