Moto Guzzi launched a special edition of its iconic Griso 8V model. The new model stands out from the crowd thanks to its new color schemes namely the Tenni Green and Rosso Mandello red, both combined with a blacked-out powertrain. We also need to send a shout at the chromed, anodized and satin-finished components, displays and commands which further enhance the unique look of the motorcycle.

Power comes from a V90 four-stroke engine, capable of 110 hp at only 7,500 rpm. The engine has a tubular twin cradle chassis in a larger format, with a wheelbase of 1,554 mm, rake of 108 mm, and steering rake and angle at 26.30° and 34° respectively.

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 new Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe Classic is a testament to what happens when you combine old-school looks with new-school technology. The result is a cafe racer version of the V7 Classic retro roadster that was introduced last year.

In terms of design, the V7 Cafe Classic packs plenty of unique features, including a 31.7" seat height, high pegs, and café-style bars that make for a comfortable ride courtesy of the bullet seat. Speaking of comfort, riding the Cafe Classic won’t give you the speed thrills you’re looking for, but what it does give you is a comfortable and classy ride on a bike that exudes retro awesomeness. Even the contrasted instrumentation and the elegant, aero-inspired filler cap exudes that old-school look that has become en vogue these days.

Speaking of the engine, the V7 Cafe Classic isn’t the most powerful bike on the market, but it does have a powertrain that’s more than capable of holding its own. The bike is powered by Guzzi’s small block 750 Nevada V-twin powertrain in an old school twin shock chassis. This engine comes equipped with twin shocks, spoke wheels, and period Veglia-esque clocks, all of which add to the Classic’s vintage virtue. While the blacked-out frame, fenders, drivetrain, fork lowers, and a fast idle lever show more modern style, the combination of styling and performance makes for a bike that’s perfect for a ride out in town.

What makes the Moto Guzzi V7 Racer such a desirable bike? Lots of reasons, if you know what you’re looking for.

Built in 2008, the V7 Racer comes with a design inspired by its predecessors - the V7 Special and Sport from the seventies - but combined with the technology of a modern Moto Guzzi . The result is a bike that’s well worth owning.

The seat leads into an aerodynamic tail fairing that also incorporates lateral race number panels in true Seventies style.

In terms of power, the Guzzi V7 Racer doesn’t hold back, thanks to an updated 745cc V-twin engine with more than 70% of its internal components being all-new, and twin intake manifolds and throttle bodies being replaced with a single Y manifold and single 38mm Magneti Marelli throttle body. All these components help the bike not only improve its fuel economy, but also reduce CO2 emissions.
The updated engine of the V7 also gets a redesigned fuel tank with the tank now lighter than the earlier unit and made of metal instead of polyethylene. All told, the bike can hit 51 horsepower and 58 Nm of torque, enough numbers to make it a worthwhile cafe racer.

Moto Guzzi had to deal with a lot of financial problems and for a pretty long period of time its uture was uncertain. Luckily the Italy’s oldest motorcycle-maker managed to stay alive and continues to built motorcycles.

However, due to its difficulties the company was starting to lose our confidence in its products as most of them were starting to show their age and were unable to compete against their modern rivals. Fortunately the new Breva V1100 proves us that the company is still able to built a capable and modern V-twin motorcycle. Moto Guzzi’s new Breva combines with success a traditional layout and character with style, comfort and performance to create the factory’s best and most advanced roadster.

The Guzzi Breva is powered by the latest generation 90° V twin engine which delivers smooth power thanks to its modern electronic injection system.

A far as design goes, the new Breva 1100 sports oval front and LED rear lights. You also get a robust 45 mm fork and an adjustable rear monoshock.
