Shot in the dark, but I need help finding a certain manufacturer

So a few months ago I came across a motorcycle manufacturer that I had never heard of. Their bikes seemed to mostly resemble this style. This is a complete long shot, but I am trying to locate them again, and I cant seem to. As I said, their bikes resembled that look, but were a little more sport/street bike styled. I also remember them using a lot of red/white/green in their designs so it could possibly have been an Italian company.

Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

I assume you've heard of Ducati, so maybe Bimota?

Thank you all so much for the assistance. I think the website that I was looking for was Moto Guzzi

Very possible that you are right about being guzzi. The trumpet you posted is often compared against the V7's. Not a great comparison imho, but they do both go for the retro cafe style.
