Its renewed stylistic and chassis solutions is designed to offer unique riding pleasure. The double-cradle frame features a reinforced front and a new steering configuration for more dynamic performance on bends and greater manageability. The shock absorbers are said to deliver a progressive, controlled response at all times. The legendary Moto Guzzi transverse V-twin engine is claimed to have received an enhancement in performance by 10%.
The dual-channel ABS and MGCT traction control system, which can be deactivated by the rider, govern braking and guarantee grip on any road surface. The design is a contemporary take on classic lines: the dual-tube exhaust and outsize cylinder heads convey a sense of power, the injector covers and saddle have been restyled, and the side panels streamlined. Easy and accessible (the seat is 20 mm lower than on the previous version), this motorcycle satisfies even the most demanding Guzzi bikers.
