I was wondering why I didn't see a byline on the review, but I think I've figured out why. One or more of us readers will get so envious of the lucky SOB that gets to ride that kind of bike and write about it that he's in great danger; there are a LOT of us that would like to shove him aside and ride the bike ourselves.
yes, I have a BMW. And yes I have a Ducati. But I'd swap either of them for that Guzzi in a microsecond. When and where is it coming to the US?
Excellent....We Guzzi owners Know that there is more to motorcycles than speed and power(although it never hurts) Owning a Guzzi requires one to become one with his motorcycle, it demands attention from the owner and so the bond is formed. Besides just look at it!!! it's sexy! it's Italian!
It's pretty, but does anyone else think that the whole underseat-exhaust thing is getting a bit old? As much as I've revered the 916 and its descendants since I first saw one, and as much as it makes some sense as far as keeping them from scraping, still....
Nice to see someone small doing it all really well, though. It's inspirational, even.
Very nice. Would it be asking too much to test the new LeMans? Performance Bikes tested it this month, but I would not consider their opinions very highly seeing that the big photo of them wheelying it shows both the front right indicator smashed, the front left torn off and a little fairing damage to boot.
Interesting review. A couple of pieces of info are missing, though. Is it, or will it be, available in the US (yes, I know, MO has a worldwide audience, but I'll bet most of us are in the US)? And how much does it cost? If you have to ask, you can't afford it?
As tonight's lovely first poster pointed out, there's a nice site at Ghezzi-brian.com, with a complete list of dealers. Britalia, in Capitola, CA, has one of these bikes left, and more Ghezzi & Brian specials on order. The new Furia looks very cool, and gets the much better six-speed gearbox.
Long live these little independent guys. While the big guys have millions and millions to spend on R&D, very often it's the little guys who implement a really neat idea that the big ones would never consider. The use of the frame as an airbox to ensure a flow of cool air is brilliant. Look for the Japanese to copy the idea at some future date.
Correct. Even my Husaberg 501 that I used to race desert on used the frame as the airbox. Again, that was a small company that used innovation and mostly original thought to come up with what was, at the time, the lightest and most powerful four-stroke moto/race bikes around.
'Furia' and 'SuperTwin' are Officially Distributed in the Americas by => www.cyclonemoto.com or go to 'Dealer' Page at => www.ghezzi-brian.com ,for their Address and Contact Info. These were the Guys at Daytona with that groovy Yellow and Blue 'SuperTwin' Demo-Byqe. The Guy said they are very affordable and directly available too... Expect to see a lot of Buells in the Gravel Traps! Those are TWIN full-perimeter Discs, so you can see the 'dime' your stopping-on!
