A fresh take on the Rosso Corsa would be easy enough
You didn't specify anything except "small block, single disc?"I was asking a question; IMO if it's just a rehash of the small block then why bother with the fuzzy photo if it's just a paint job and a couple of doodads? The photo implies something so exciting that we want to keep it hidden until it's unveiling, and maybe (hopefully) that is what will happen. And I'm not trying to go out of my way to be negative here, small blocks are fine, they are what they are and I'm glad they are making money from the bikes at this present time but the competition is moving on. At least in the past, Guzzi tried to keep up with BMW but that is way in the distant past. Maybe they want to dominate Benelli for the time being?
Oddly enough I remember that differently , some of us were skeptical of the power claims . Dusty
Most of us would be happy with a sporting roadster platform that could be turned into a sport touring mount or left naked . 85-95 Shetlands with a nice flat torque curve , 6 speed transmission , decent suspension , that still sounds and acts like a Moto Guzzi .
I hope they make a smallblock LeMans 850 with a monoshock, USD forks, and dual-disc brakes.Mostly to annoy all the people who think they shouldn't, but also because I think it would be great!
Kinda like the racer should have been all along.
Who’s serve, I can’t remember 🤔😂😂😂
Have always held that opinion . The BB crank and rods are more robust than the SB's , and the bore/stroke dimensions of the Bellagio motor not only allow it to rev quite nicely they also help de-stress the motor . The two valve design was basically bulletproof , and while not as high zoot as a 4 valve design , what Chevrolet has done with 2 valve heads is pretty remarkable, we are only seeking 95 reliable HP , with a nice torque curve . Much simpler to do with a short stroke BB than trying to produce those numbers from an over stressed SB . Yes , it will be a bit heavier , but with some prudent application of modern metallurgy surely the weight can be kept under 500 LBS while maintaining simplicity and reliability . Water cool the heads , put modern shower head FI on it , modern cam profiles , etc . Dusty
Nothing against the small block. But I would like to see a big block sport touring machine. I was almost hooked on the 1400. Would I purchase one new? No. Given Guzzi's track record, I'd wait for a couple of years to see if they were reliable. At my age, perhaps it would be never. That's been the history for the last 20 years. Don't blame the customers for being shy.
