Default Re: A better looking Moto Guzzi

Sorry, but these are totally different bikes. The 750 at the URL you specified is a real production model due out next spring.

If Buell didn't exist I'd be on a Guzzi. There aren't too many air cooled v twins that are on the sporting end of real world bikes. I hope Aprilla doesn't drop the line.

Actually, it makes 8.8 kgm of torque at 8400 rpm, based on the peak HP figure.

I agree whole heartedly. I have considered piecing a similar bike together from current Guzzi bikes. The engine from a Centauro, the frame, transmission and suspension from the Scura, and the performance mods available for the motor through Magni for their America VWW

Default Gilera CX125

The Gilera CX125 from some years ago (Eurpoe only) had a single sided front and single sided rear.

Default STR750

My honorable Captain

The mentioned rendering of the STR750 has been seen in different italian publications and internet sites.

It is based on the "small block" V-mill, same engine as in the Europen only Nevada 750 cruiser and will have fuel injection. It is indeed planned as an entry level Guzzi. Will let you know more when I'll see it in the flesh in two weeks time.

Yamaha did and it was awesome, yet nobody bought it. The GTS 1000

Thank you Aprilia for purchasing Moto Guzzi. They are obviously rejuvinated and introducing some neat machines with real world attractiveness (reference to functional improvements made to the V11 Sport). Let's see the h20 cooled engine while continuing to develop the air cooled models. Great to see the 4 valver again too. Might have to upgrade my '73 Eldo (that's a Guzzi in case ya don't know) with something to accompany my '97TLS streetfighter
