New Moto Guzzi California breaks cover

Moto Guzzi’s eagerly-awaited, all-new 1400 California has just been unveiled in Florida, USA.

Nice.......shame about the exhausts mined.

Much muchness

Seems much like any other guzzi except for that tail pipe what a stonker of a tail pipe that is!

 

My word that tail pipe is huge and uggly, let's hope in the interest of all our minds and sanity they do something about it, else the female pillions will be losing their heals melted all over that pipe, or is it only to be a single seater, if it is then they won't sell many as many riders like to have their babe in tow especially on those weekend trips out.

Is Miguel Galuzzi Stevie Wonder's alter ego?  That's not styled, that's just hideous! Bring back the 850 T3, not this horror...........

The engine looks superb but the styling is questionable.

The bike is to be publicly unveiled at the Milan show??? Looks to me like it already has been or are these not the public standing round it, for a picture for the benefit of the public? Or am I just being cynical?

That is truly, spectacularly ugly

It looks like they started with a solid billet, started to machine out the outline of a child's drawing of a motorcycle, but got bored and said "Eh, oblong with a wheel on front, that'll do,".  How anyone can orbit within its gravity well and pretend to be proud to be associated with it boggles the mind.

I can only assume that the target market is the "Yeah, I've got a bike, it's not a hawg, big whoop, wanna fight about it?" sector.

And to think that Moto Guzzi made its name from low, light, narrow, nimble motorcycles. The designer(?) of this abomination should be shot as an example to others. It looks as if it fell off an ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. God help Moto Guzzi...
