Really cool bike. They fixed that giant ugly can the old one had too. If it comes in anything other than white, I'm all over it. Now, if I can just find a Guzzi dealer near me.

Yep, we all knew the 8v motor would be better in this bike. This is my style bike. Now all I have to do is wait the customary 20 yrs before I buy it. Until then I'll just bum the ATD demo bike when it comes in.

I'm also one of those guys who buys a bike years after it comes out. Well I'm 51 and I don't know if I want to wait till I'm 60 to own this bike. I would be happy to own the 4 valve. Lets see if sold the 98 Sprint , the Paso, my 850 Lemans project, I may have a down payment!
I love the looks of this bike, long, low and lean just like the LeMans and V7 sport but very up to date with out going the retro look.

What impresses me is that MO has got the scoop on reporting on this bike. The Guzzi I sat on at the Motorcycle Show back in February had nice ergonomics. I like this bike, but I don't think I'll be able to afford it anytime soon. Good thing I got my other bikes :)

It's the inimitable...

.. Yossef once again. If MO is ever stupid enough to let him get away I propose we slow roast the new management on a spit over a pile of burning MX tires.

I second that. Yossef is a joy to read. The photography is top shelf as well. Looks like Guzzi is poised to give BMW a run for the money.

Superb review from Yossef as always. Not only is he an asset to the site, he's virtually the only reason I pay my sub to MO. As for the Griso, I'm now waiting for them to put that motor in the 1200 Sport. Until then I'm enjoying the lime-green V11S I bought this summer which has brought me back into Guzzidom after six years away - and ALL the injected models are just SO much better than the old carb'd ones. Never thought, as an time-served LeMans-o-phile, that I'd ever say that, but it's true...

I'll wait for the v7 retro

I just saw a photo of the new Guzzi V7 Retro, using the Breva engine, looking like a t-3/V7 sport blend. Not to far off the look of the v50 of old. Supposed to me more info coming Nov. 6th. The Griso 8v is ok, but I'll wait for the V7. Less performance, great look. Good bike for us old guys.
