Not that they didn't think about it, before the first ST came out.
I rode over 300,000 miles on two ST1100's . Loved the way they covered miles on long trips and 300 mile gas stops. Then I found a Guzzi CalVin and fell in love with the Guzzi motor. The Honda motor is flat reliable but you love it just like you love any other appliance. It just works. my thinking was that if I had the CalVin motor in the Honda it would be a perfect bike. Then I bought a Norge thinking I would get the best of both worlds. I think the Norge is a great bike but the motor isn't at all like the CalVin and the handling and comfort is not like the ST Honda. Guess there is a reason many of us need more than one motorcycle.
Hello Folks, Its the middle of the monsoon season here in southern Arizona, and I have been catching up on maintenance on my newish Honda ST 1300 sidecar rig. When I removed most of the "tuppeware" for a brake system flush,inspection, and generalized detailing, I realized how much like a Guzzi the bike is/ and also how different....If Guzzi made a water cooled V 4, this would be the "Norge". This bike is very overbuilt, and tough. Made to last for the long haul, like a Guzzi. Honda barely changed anything, at all in many years, also like a Guzzi. I keep going back and forth comparing things,and some differences are interesting, such as how Honda located the clutch at the front of the engine, and the alternator between the "V". I can see why many police depts. used these bikes, they were made to take abuse, and keep on going.Rick.https://www.google.com/search?q=honda+st+1300+engine&client=firefox-b-1-d&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj4tsaTueTqAhVBJzQIHeU8C74Q_AUoAXoECAsQAw&biw=979&bih=469#imgrc=Nj091WgsUqkwbM
If Guzzi made a liquid cooled anything ... it would't be a Guzzi anymore !
