Not for nothing, but I haven't read Luap's story. Where is it?I read one thread where he put 17,000 miles on a MGX and another saying he had 600 miles before he traded it in?
Did he have two of them?
IIRC, 17k miles and it ate some very important bits of the motor. Took months and months and months and finally the dealership got his bike fixed. 600 miles after getting it fixed it derped out again, which was the last straw. If I was independently wealthy I woulda bought it and encased it in cement so it couldn’t harm any other riders.
Computer modeling is no replacement for the old "test to destruction" method of determining weak spots . Dusty
Wow 185mph. For 24 Hrs.non stop ! That be some fuel tank!!!
Statistics...need to really see what % of the motorcycles built are having serious life threatening issues. Writing off an entire brand due to less than 1% major failures is an emotional reaction, not a fact based on. Cannot extrapolate that new V7's, V9's or vV85's are all going to fail just because 1 or 2 MGX's bit the dust.
No, the new Guzzis aren't all going to fail. Isn't the real take-away from Luap's tale the fact that Piaggio did NOT step up as it should? And that parts availability is just miserable? And that communication from the dealer was very poor as well?And this is not the first story about bad treatment from Piaggio, just a rather extreme one.

Not for nothing , I made a living for 25 years fixing “brand new cars” . I don’t care if you’re buying a Porsche, Cadillac, Rolls Royce , Yugo , Tesla etc, They all have a Service Dept. & a warranty. And some will “Fail to live up to their design potential “. IMHO lean production , A lack of “beta testing “ & bean counters are the largest bunch of culprits . Oh and lets not forget engineering faux pas . Huh , it worked great in the lab . Nobody intentionally builds bad product , I hope , but it’s not uncommon for stuff to slip through the cracks . I could go on but that discussion is best left for a rally campfire
Paul,My post was referring to the company that owns Moto Guzzi, and some dealers, not the machine themselves. When I purchase a new vehicle, with a new vehicle warranty, my expectation is that the company and its dealerships will hold up their end of the contract. I’ve purchased a new Moto Guzzi in the past, 2000 V11 Sport. I had a dealer refuse warranty work, even back then.
