Pretty cool, but it's the sub-50 hp that hangs me up. If they could get nearly 60 I might be in the house, but otherwise it's just cute. Newbies should consider it i decent starter.

Cute for a knee burner.

I know that the hp nazis will make fun of it, but I'll bet that this thing would be as fun as a barrel of monkeys.

Better going fast on a slow bike than going slow on a fast bike.

La dolce vita
 
It's gorgeous. (I'd take off the bib above the headlight, but to each their own.) Flatly the prettiest bike on the market right now.

And I'm sure there are [ahem] options regarding the cams and FI chip and the like to liven it up further. But that's just the final touches on a glorious creation.

Too bad it's going to be pricey (probably around $10K), which makes for an unfavorable beginner-bike situation. But good God, it's lovely.

It's definitely got the details down. However, for my money I'd rather have the Triumph Thruxton.

A 1200cc Guzzi is a slow enough bike. :wink:

Keep in mind Kirk, all of aren't faced with the same mass accelleration equation that you are. Besides, it looks to me like there's plenty of room to hang a couple of Mr. Turbo units on those pipes. You could easily whack it up to a whopping 80+ hp!
