Nice
 
Even with the lows I really like this bike. It has a uniqueness that only a Guzzi can have.

Nice!
Way to go Piaggio! enough with the small block V7 variants. More big block bikes like this please!

Too bad they felt the need to give it weight like an HD? Still those HP and torque numbers at such low rpms take the engine back to its tractor heritage. If I wanted a 750 lb cruiser this would be a good way to go. Good on the traditional tube handlebars. I hate those damm new "what you see is what you get" bars.

I like the base model better.

This could end up on the short list since we have a dealer nearby.

Touring on a bike with a limited dealer network could be tough.

An 18" front with a 16" rear? That's an interesting combination.

The saddlebags look pretty small; I wonder if they have a top case for it, or even a rack?

Did I miss the price? It's got to be in the $20k range.

Gonna put that motor into my Le Mans!

Yep on the top cases. Two sizes. No price announced for USA yet. I'll guess $18.5K.

Is there a price in euros? Just multiply it by 1.28.
