Friday bike

SWM Gran Milano 440

Another old name from the past returning. SWM were an Italian company that specialised in off road bikes in the 1970s and 80s. The brand has been re-launched this year with a range of bikes, including the Gran Milano.

An unusual mixture of old (air cooled single cylinder engine, twin shocks), and new (fuel injection, upside down forks), coupled to unusual styling and hideous brown paint.
Not much detail other than they are built in Milan with funding from Chinese firm Shinerey, who supplied some of the parts.

Rather minimalist luggage!

It features a 445cc engine, weights 145kg, and costs £4,999 in the UK.


  1. Great looking bike, love the frame on this model. Thanks for the share!
