Still not my type of bike at all, but looks much better than I first feared from the 'spy pics'.

Cheers,

I saw this and think itís pretty neat as well. The video is cracking me up but I think this going to be an amazing bike and a tremendous seller for Guzzi( at least I hope) thanks for posting the pictures.

Great video shot on the guzzi link of the Italian eagle landing on the hand of a seated rider ..

Where have I seen this motorcycle shape before?

Honestly, I think itís a pretty good looking bike. With a set of integrated bags, it looks like a winner to me.

Wtf.
Itís all subjective but thatís the ugliest, blandest thing Iíve seen come out of the Factory sinceÖwell honestly, I dunno.  Are they taking their cues from a 2005 FZ6?  Iím genuinely baffled.  Uh.  Hope it looks better in person?  :boozing: :undecided:

Well I'd say it's on par with some of their ugliest contraptions ;)

Anyway - the engine looks nice, and might fit into a new classic line well with some appropriate valve covers.

Funny mate.
Your comments suggest youíre adamant, but your emoji says youíre undecided..
Fair dinkum, some of you blokes would whinge if your arse was eating ice cream, itís very, very, nice.
BTW.
What do you ride and for someone whoís baffled, youíre making a lot of noise..

I do love that they retained fins on the jugs... couldnt see that before. Also liking the look of the 'new carc' now that I can see more detail. Cool wheels.

Iím trying not to be biased, but add this to one of the 10% of sport-style bikes that actually attract me. Simple, sleek lines, and something about that fairing is just jazz. Hereís hoping it passes the wind tunnel test :D

And I think they did a great job in minimizing the radiator, also looks like a shorter wheelbase. I bet itís fun to ride.

Why...? :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:
. Mostly the idea this bike is taking flight like an Eagle I think is a neat concept. I do feel the video is over the top in a good way. Just when the bike takes off visually it looks like the rider is missing the turn. Maybe itís just me.

Thatís enough to get me thinking about a new bike purchase. Beautiful metallic red and styling. Not sure if the water cooling is a turnoff, and if the cylinders should look modern and smooth. The engine form conveys the heritage without the fins.

I'm excited about this.  It looks pretty sporty, but look at the height of the handlebars, they know their audience.  Nothing about price yet, but I imagine you will need at least $13,000 to $15,000 to park it in your garage, then come the bags and other accessories.  The BMW 1250RS is the closest looking beemer to it and they are more like $20,000.00. So, just as the V85 series is a relative bargain for what you get, I hope they keep this machine priced right too.  This machine may actually have a shot of some conquest sales if it gets the press reception that the v85tt got and of course, if they can deliver the bikes.  Always a question with MG.

I think the gold rims, and the subtle swoop of that swingarm look fantastic. In the video it also looks like it has active air intake panels of some sort. Pretty fancy.

It will be closer to $20K than 13-15... Glad it's not a cruiser. Not exactly stunningly beautiful but I like it - I'll bet it has a nice personality. :grin: Certainly is modern and a good way to kick off the next 100 years.
Do we know displacement? I'll bet 1200-1400cc
And why is the driveshaft on the left?

I thought it was a foregone conclusion that it was 1000 cc.....(hope it is).

Yeah, it should be 1000 so that in a couple years they'll come out with the "v100 1200" to go with the v7 850.
