Before the Moto Guzzi V11, recent Moto Guzzi’s had often been little short of atrocious. Thanks mostly to Aprilia, that all changed markedly will the V11, especially later ones. Paint and finishes are rich and creamy, compoinentry is excellent and general build quality is fabulous. Reliability is much improved, too. On the slight downside, spares can be difficult to ovtian for the Moto Guzzi V11 (a common Aprilia complaint).
