That is a very good looking bike. MG needs to get the HP rating up around 100 if they want to sell them.

The Carbon Dark got some serious pans by reviewers as being 50 year old tech (engine, suspension, and brake (performance)) tarted up with some carbon fiber that's incongruous to the rest of the design.

I don't think more hp is needed. Yamaha's upcoming T7 Tenere will be 75 Hp max, Ducari 950 Multistrada, Triumph Scrambler and Ducati Scrambler are all under 100hp.
 Staying under 500 pounds will be much more important, which seems to be the case. I will never say no to more hp, but I can get by! Lol. About 7or 8 years ago I was riding an old XJ750S Yamaha with 87hp and 531 pounds, and it never felt slow. We adjust.

 I agree! But if I want a light adventure bike, it has to be the small block Guzzi, and until they give us the 4 valve heads, this is the limit of the 2 valve architecture. I will live with it...
 The V7 is selling like hotcakes (okay Italian hotcakes) with 52hp, so Guzzi must know something.

That really is a cool bike. One of my riding buddies has had a deposit down on one for a long time. I think he said he is first in line in the country.

It would look much better if the colors weren't so mismatched.

The way it is would require a green meals on wheels box.

 I just can't figure out that "batwing" fairing. The front end flops side to side with the weight of it. I think it ruins an otherwise great bike. But to each their own...

 I really like it too! I'm torn between another Stelvio and the V85. For now I may go Stelvio, but the lighter weight of the V85 is a big deal. I can hardly wait to ride it!

I can’t afford any new bike just now.  But given the mix, leaset what I have Read or seen, I would ride this one first. It ticks my boxes. Owning a Guzzi, being able to easily maintain the bike, is primo where I live.
