The first Moto Guzzi MGS-01 to arrive in the UK came straight to MCN on December 22 and drew an instant crowd of admirers as it was pulled out of the crate.
You can share in the moment by downloading our video clip to experience the sound of the beast's first breaths.
The £16,000 track-only transverse V-twin looked stunning on its slick tyres. But it was when we took it outside on a dark evening to fire it up for the first time that we were most impressed. Download the video clip to hear for yourself the straight-through Termignoni tune.
