Guzzi's plans for 05
Moto Guzzi`s future direction may have been in doubt all year, but that hasn`t stopped it ploughing on in developing a line up of bikes for 2005.
They were revealed in Munich on Tuesday morning (Sep 14) and include the MGS-01, first shown two years ago is nearing production in its “Corsa” race form. A road version is planned for 2006.
The line-up in full is:
The Griso “techno-custom” – a prototype first revealed in 2002. It uses an 1100cc V-twin making around 100bhp and has upside-down forks, big discs and Brembo calipers.
Breva 1100: Finally ready for production in 2005. Instrument panel incorporates an LCD display controlled by bar-mounted buttons. ABS will be offered as an option.
V11 Scura R: The engine should offer a little more than the other V11 bikes’ 90bhp, thanks to high-compression heads. Ohlins suspension and carbon abound. Expect to pay around £8500.
MGS-01: Track-only “Corsa” form, the MGS-01 has gained a bellypan, and should go on sale to racers this year in this form.
