Except that prices in Europe don't have a direct correlation to currency conversion when US MSRPs are set...

Another cool bike from Moto Guzzi! One of these days I'm going to buy one, be it a Norge, Stelvio or V11 Coppa Italia, one of the most beautiful pieces of eye candy ever built, I just love 'em!

I remember the original Ambassadors and certainly see the lineage to this one, very nice indeed. The leg warmer cylinders would be a blessing around here given the monsoon I rode in this morning to get to work, even with my Genuine HD Engine Protection Bar Covers (w/ reflective Bar & Shield logo tm.) my boots got wet.

The engine in this bike sounds fantastic for it's mission. They are a little quirky, but I have really enjoyed my rides on Moto Guzzis. 90 degree twins sound great and have a connected feel no mattter which way the cylinders face. I bet this big boy would sound very satisfying with some proper exhaust cans on it.

The power output suggests that perhaps HD should hire some of Moto Guzzi's engineers...
