Former Belstaff Owners Take Control of Matchless Motorcycle Brand

Manuele and Michele Malenotti have a thing for British brands, and motorcycles.

ROARING AHEAD: Manuele and Michele Malenotti have a thing for British brands — and motorcycles. The former owners of British label Belstaff have taken control of Matchless, a motorcycle label founded in 19th-century London. The passion for bikes runs in the family, as their father Franco Malenotti, founder of the family business Clothing Company, is an avid motorcycle fan.

In 2011, Labelux Group bought Belstaff, known for its waxed cotton biker gear, and has been relaunching and expanding the brand globally.
