New Moto Guzzi California Cruiser and V7 Scrambler

Moto Guzzi has officially sent out images of the new California Cruiser and V7 Scrambler after poor quality images were leaked earlier this week. The bikes were shown to Piaggio dealers from all over the world in Monte Carlo last week. Someone who was there took a mobile phone picture and it leaked online. Since then Guzzi opted to release high...

MOTO GUZZI WHEN?

The scrambler V7 first caught my eye but i prefer after a good look the Triumph.

The CALIFORNIA however looks pretty bloody good. I don't know why but when i see a bike i like that's it and i find i LIKE this bike.:biggrin:

It looks retro yet has a certain ART DECO MEETS BATMAN'S GOTHAM flair to it. The wheels look GOOD REALLY COOL,the rear tyre looks big, hope too see 240 or at least 200 section. Good to see RAD CALS used.About bloody time, they look the part. Exhausts look good,the cylinders look massive,probably how Guzzi got the 1.4 L engine capacity stroke or big bore!?:huh:

Hope it pumps out a good 120bhp and a good helping of torque.Hope the price is sensible?

Overall big tick.......great!!!:biggrin:

Both

look nice; although I still think that MotoMorini make the best of the retro Scramblers.

Cali seems well done. Even though I've got quite short inside leg, I always end up with my knees resting on the cylinder heads. Might throw a leg over to see if this one is better; but would stop me buying one.

Good year so far for customs - new Saxon bobber; Honda Furious and Switchblades (stupid names, cool bikes), New HOG, new Victory Bobber.

Still want the Indian Chief Blackhawk though...

70s and 80s

Is it just me? or, are bike Manufacturers re-visiting the 70s and 80s for their inspiration???  250s with the same power as a Super Dream , naked retro's , Scramblers. ect ect.

I liked the original V7 whatever it was called, the one that was like a normal 70's naked. That is a sweet bike for a bimble down the pub for lunch on a Sunday. These things look daft to me.

I guess

Moto Guzzi looked at the Triumph scrambler and wanted a slice of the pie.

The V7 looks pretty good, MCN should do a back to back test of both bikes.
