Like its predecessors, the 2013 Moto Guzzi California 1400 Custom offers an interesting mix between the classic style of the old cruisers and modern technology. Among the modern features offered by the new Moto Guzzi California 1400 Custom you’ll find a brand new powerful 1400cc engine in the classic transversal V2 architecture, ride by wire, cruise control, ABS and traction control.

The company says about its new California 1400 Custom that is “the “bad” sibling of the California family, in total contrast in terms of temperament and style.”

Talking about style, the motorcycle features a classic cruiser design: two catchy wheels, shiny engine, comfortable saddle and imposing handlebars. All merging together to form a typically Italian design language which inspires power and sportiness.

Other notable styling details include the two-seater saddle boasting the hot-pressed Eagle logo, the drag bar handlebars with light-weight supports and the original rear shock absorbers with external tank.

The 2013 Moto Gruzzi California 1400 made its official debut at the EICMA. The bike is offered in two versions, namely Touring and Custom and features a tasty mix between the retro and luxury styles.

Unfortunately Guzzi’s reputation is not exactly stellar as its past motorcycles weren’t able to make a good impression due to their poor reliability and doubtful mechanics. The new California however, seems to have the potential to repair the company’s reputation.

For the starters, it features a gorgeous design and it’s powered by a strong 1380 cc oppose-twin 8 valve engine which delivers a maximum output of 96 hp and 120 Nm of torque at 2750 rpm. Power is sent to the rear wheel through a six sped transmission. Other notable features include ride-by-wire, traction control and selectable engine mapping - Turismo, Veloce and Pioggia.

The Moto Guzzi California 1400 is built on a fresh double cradle steel tube chassis and sits on front 16 inch and rear 18 inch wheels wrapped in with 200/60 and 130/70 tyres. The bike is kept in check by a set of Brembo brakes with ABS.

The best competitor for the police Harley, this Italian custom is a filled-with-heritage piece of machinery especially designed for the wistful rider in every one of us. It is the first European bike to have ever said a word about its maker on other continents and it did it first with the V7 Special and the legendary 90-degree 757 V-twin engine. Today, a modern-day replica cheers nostalgics and leaves the impression of a restored classic two-wheeler.
