If you want to see choppers in my area look no further than CL under motorcycles for sale. Look at the TOTD slayer with only 850 pain free miles on it and for only $22,000 it can be yours
Really? How many times does his name need to be attached to failure to make it complete?
EB didn't fail HD did. The XB platform is superior to any Guzzi. Fuel in frame, belt drive, perimeter brake, 103HP
Sadly I agree with the above because Guzzi no longer build competitive motorbikes. They, or their masters, have decided that the 'Brand' should only build fashion accessories that appeal to those who like the *Idea* of a motorbike without actually knowing or understanding anything about them. It seems to be a viable business strategy as they continue to build and 'Develop' the miserable smallblock platform rather than shit-canning the whole lot and starting anew.Pete
Was the old loop frame on display inside the 1-Moto Show or parked outside by a rider attending the event?
I'm suprised people think the V7 is an "around town" bike. I must be well hard to have ridden mine (ok it is a B750) 53,000 miles with trips as far as the Pyrenees and back from Roscoff, Scotland and back from Plymouth, etc etc...
Maybe Piaggio has decided that the big block platform is too heavy to be anything but a cruiser so instead they will incrementally increase the performance of the small block - 6 spd box, head redesign, expandable engine, 2 u-joint driveshaft. Maybe a modern frame/rear suspension is next?
Im guessing that the 1400 is not a dead end. I suspect it will be put in some more interesting configurations than we have now.
Let Guzzi be Guzzi , they can't compete with the bigger companies in the high performance market . Remember , Aprilia probably sells fewer bikes than Guzzi does , and they have some serious street cred in that market . Fix the way the company interacts with its dealers , improve quality control at the origin point , and continue developing some fairly simple designs . Dusty
I think, personally, that in today's market a "WOW factor bike" would require:1) a variety of style designs around the same bones. Standard, "cafť", "scrambler", "cruiser"... but mean it. Not just styling cues. 2) fantastic emissions and fuel economy... it matters. Especially to a new generation. 3) impeccable build quality before sale, and impeccable support after sale. People want to ride... not wrench or wait for parts. "quirk" only has value to Blackthumbs.4) LED lighting all around. 5) mid-sized... 500 to 800cc tops. 6) A low maintenance schedule, with easily available maintenance supplies. 7) cast wheels. 8) good aftermarket support. 9) a solid "image" attached to brand, through marketing.10) Honda build quality, H-D mystique, R.E. pricing.
I actually feel like the v85tt at least so far has the Wow factor. I canít think of any Guzzi in recent decades that has attracted this level of attention from so many sources. Will it live up to the hype, will see, but it certainly is drawing more attention to Guzzi than anything else in some time.
Agreed. It seems to be generating lots of interest across the board.I hope it's good.
hope people can find one...
