The current (2003-2006) small blocks in the 750 Breva and Nevada have been holding up just fine thank you. I have heard of no mechanical disasters with these bikes. I picked up a new 2004 Breva this spring and am enjoying every minute on this bike. I'll let you know if the engine explodes.

"..... and their reliability is light years better than Guzzi."



That statement is so full of Sh!t I'm going to need a bulldozer to clean it up. I'm glad you like your KTM though. BTW, how many Guzzis have you owned?

Got a New Holland, John Deere or International Harvester dealer around?

Maybe a bit of Martini to go with that Rossi?

The good folks a KTM sure had a bad case of fupduck bearings last year. I believe it was water pump related. Quite a few stranded Adventure riders out there.

The flip up rear fender made tire changes a tad easier on the V-7. Wooda made a good replacement for the Vdub.

I have been riding a Jackal for the last five years, and everytime I think about trading it off for a bigger cruiser, I can't do it. I'll miss the handling too much and I have as much power as a lot of bigger bikes. Though I am limited with aftermarket accessories and tires, I still think it's worth keeping, not to mention I have it equiped for touring and I love the hardbags. Guzzi's are great bikes, well put together, and bullet proof engines. I rode nothing but Japanese bikes for the last 15 years and I am feel just as good about my Guzzi as I do about the others I have owned when it comes to reliability. If I were to get another bike it would be a big tourer so my other half will ride with me, so far that hasn't happen so the Jackal (and my Buell S3) are safe for now. I can't wait for the Vintage, I may not have to send my Jackal to Mark at Moto Guzzi Classics to customized into an Eldo look alike!

Default You're right...

Perhaps I should take reading comprehension again



Too bad the sports will no longer be available and I wish the Ghezzi-brians weren't so darned expensive!

Nice photos - great job taking them and posting online for us to gawk at!



Anyone seen the Griso in the US yet? Been checking Speed's Cycle (Elkridge MD) and Winchester Motosports (Clearbrook VA) sites, but no mention of one coming in yet.



Have been waiting for the Griso so long, am now contemplating looking at the Breva since Yossef has written so nicely about both of these.



What is with these dealers and their being closed Sun & Mon? How about being closed instead on Mon & Tues so that people who have to work for a living to buy a cycle can actually check them out on the weekends.

I love Guzzi. I really do. I can't imagine not owning one. But they need to get the business house in order. I just noticed the North American importer has let their URL lapse: http://www.motoguzzi-us.com/



This ***** ain't that hard.
