That is REALLY gorgeous, one of the best looking Moto Guzzis I have ever seen.

Buy one and let us know how it rides!

Actually I just might. Been missing a Guzzi ever since I sold my Griso 1200 two years ago.

That is a really good looking motorcycle. 1,000 CCs? Now we're in the game.

Notice that they rotated the intake and exhaust 90 degrees (smarter orientation IMO). No knee-knocker FI. Also, the horn is right in line with the front tire so it will get soaked in the rain. Can't last long that way I assume.

Good observation. Maybe it is listed in the Moto Guzzi parts manual as "rock catcher"!

If they design the cover to sound like a cowbell every time a rock hits it, it would add a bit of personality to group rides.

Remember the golden rule when pronouncing Guzzi …

There is absolutely no T in the word Guzzi

It’s a Moto Guzzi

Not a Motor Gutsi

Definitely prefer the green "centenary" paint job ---  very pretty bike either way though.....  and the  SS swingarm and short pipe is one of prettiest straight from the factory rear quarters I've seen...

Blue may have to get a new bike....   Smile

I also noticed they swapped sides on the shaft drive. The Griso pictured above has the shaft on the right, the V100 on the left.

Just like BMW did a few years ago. I think the R9T was still on the right side after the wet heads changed over.
