2013 Moto Guzzi California: first official pic!

These are the first official photos of Moto Guzzi’s all-new 2013 California 1400 released in advance of next week’s unveiling at the Milan Show. As expected it’s a classic, transverse V-twin, shaft-drive cruiser but it’s  fabulous styling, mouth-watering finish and class-leading high tech has taken everyone by surprise. It comes in two forms – the California 1400 Touring pictured here, complete with...

Many USians

think a Honda Dullsville is a BMW, until they get close enough to see the Honda logo.  Or they think it is a maxi-scooter, or even a ST1300 (aka Pan European).

I look at this and think...

why?  Yes, there was a Guzzi California all those years ago, but it's 2013 soon and retro may have some appeal to some people but this doesn't look like it will be a successful project.  People like retro due to simplicity and sex appeal. This bike has neither.

I am not sure if they end up selling even 5 of these.  Unless they force each dealer to buy one, then they'll wholesale a couple of hundred, but as for retail, I don't think it'll go anywhere.

At risk of being labelled as continually contrarian I think it looks great.

I'd ride it.

Not my usual cup of tea but for a cruiser it's beautiful and there's nothing wrong with a bit of Eagles Snev.

@ snev

New bike for me?

Sorry, but Honda is not importing the Integra for 2013.  But maybe a Husqy Terra for all of our roads, including this one: sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/166966_2725062577245_2008732787_n.jpg
