The scrambler is cool and I believe I even mentioned when the v7 came out that I thought it'd look cool. But I really like the Cali. Why? Don't know. Tank, jugs, backend???? Something is very intersting about it.

Default Chasing a trend

IMHO, Guzzi is just chasing a trend. The Triumph model is sooo much better styled and thought out, versus this model. Even the H-D XR1200 is better styled and more honest that this thing. Just my $0.03 (adjusted for inflation).

Oh Lord no! Visions of 75 lbs. of chrome sidepipes above the center of gravity rear up like an old CL350 crossing a road berm. That thing is mui peligroso. "Scrambler" indeed. More like scrambled thoughts after picking yourself up off the dirt "Whahappen?"
A gun is a tool, Marian; no better or no worse than any other tool: an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.
