Looking in the specs, it has splash lubrication?



Just like my feeftee chebie. Clever those Romans.

dont ever count on italian's knowledge of english, though in this case they got it right as it's related to the transmission's lubrication clever boy

We all have cars for transportation, Motorcycles should be all about lust. The new Moto Guzzi's are sex on wheels.

Guzzi and Triumph have both come back from near-oblivion with some quality goods. I would like to see them both do well in the US market.

Now if Bultaco would just make a comeback...

Ahhhh memories.....I remember riding my 65 pan to into the local Honda dealership and sitting on a CBX parked outside(my fading memory says it was orange>). The lust was taking over and I had just about decided to buy,when the ahole salesman came out and basically told me I was a Harley guy not worth his time and get off the bike. I went home and got my CB400F ss ,drove it to the lot and proceeded to cut donuts in the parking lot while the Ahole peeked out the window(I was younger and less mellow then). Never went back. I often wonder what different motorcycling path I would have headed down if I had bought that bike. I also often wish I had kept the 400,but by the time I was finished with it,it was pretty ragged out.

Car? What's that?



Seriously though... many of us commute daily on 2 wheels, so practical and reliable are important. Regardless, you are correct Guzzi as true lust machines.

called Mandello today and no, no US price yet.

If it's any help, In Italy it's going to be 12,200 euros. Breva 1100 is 11,600 for comparison.

This is going to be so tough - the wife wants me to wait so that we can try a Norge, the Griso is pulling at me right now, and this comes along hittin' all the right buttons.........god forbid I may have to sell the '02 LeMans, or buy a house with a 3 car gargage to fit all these bikes in.

Every few months I like to cruise the local bike shops with my 12 year old nephew. While passing the local Honda dealer he asked: "why don't we ever stop in there?" To which I replied, "there's nothing in there to see".

Anyhow, why does the Sport have such a small muffler compared to that Atlas Booster on the Griso?
