Even thought the Nevada Classic retains the Moto Guzzi look that has gone around the world over and over again, the 2009 bike is an absolutely modern version. Fuel injection is being used for a less-polluting engine and a stronger bang while its design makes it perfect for nostalgic riders. These will definitely appreciate the 87% brand new bike. Let’s see what it’s up to!
Moto Guzzi has just presented their official promotional video of the new V7 Café Classic launched by the Italian maker at the end of 2008 at the EICMA Saloon in Milan.
The bike in the video is actually a special edition of the V7 Classic and which stands out thanks to the café-racer seat, rubber gas tank pads as well as due to the two-tone color scheme.
If you’ve been searching for the closest thing sounding like symphony on two wheels, this Moto Guzzi might be it.
Moto Guzzi has presented the first official pictures of the new 2009 Guzzi 1200 Sport 4V, an improved machine which determines the Italian maker to claim an increase in performance of up to 10hp and 10Nm while, stylistically, the bike remains the same.
The engine is still the “Quattrovalvole” V-Twin with eight valves that can be found on the Stelvio 1200 4V, only that now performance figures go as up as 105 hp at 7,500 rpm and 110 Nm at 6,500 rpm.
Clearly, the performance upgrade makes the 1200 Sport 4V one of the most desirable naked bikes that Europe has to offer and as you will read about features such as the tubular steel frame, Marzocchi suspensions and Brembo brakes featuring 320mm discs on which 4-piston radial calipers apply the braking power, there isn’t much more you can ask from it
The only changes you will notice if familiar with the previous model years is the new taillight and the stylish redesigned exhaust which now blends perfectly with the bike’s smooth lines. Just make sure you won’t confuse it with the 2008 model year.
When it comes to early days Moto Guzzi bikes I always seem to have a soft spot and the video that I am now presenting to you comes as a consequence of that. The Moto Guzzi V7 Special California needs no presentation and the splendid exemplar that is the main character in the video looks like it just got off the production line.
