sa lain nga bulok: Moto Guzzi Norge

The Moto Guzzi Norge has been on the periphery of my awareness of touring bikes for some time. Usa sa mga sibaw nga mga modelo sa merkado, kini usab mahitabo nga ang usa sa labing maayo nga presyo ug labing praktikal nga - kon usab ang usa sa mga labing bug-at. Uban sa usa ka bag-o nga model nga gipagawas sa miaging tuig, ingon nga bahin sa usa ka walay puas nga paningkamot sa pagbutang sa Moto Guzzi sa mainstream, ang Norge imposible sa dili bisan sa crowded touring karon sa merkado.

Sama sa daghang mga Italyano kompaniya motorsiklo, Moto Guzzi mao incredibly mapahitas-on sa iyang panulondon, ug ang Norge adunay usa ka ilabi espesyal nga usa. Kini ginganlan human sa GT Norge, groundbreaking sa kompanya 1928 modelo - sa iyang kaugalingon nga ginganlan alang sa airship nga mao ang una nga molupad sa ibabaw sa North Pole. 500cc Ang GT Norge nahuman sa usa ka 4,000-milya test ride gikan sa Italyano HQ sa kompanya ni Norway Lapland, sa sulod ngilit sa Arctic Circle.

Kini ang matang sa ride pud kita pagklasipikar ingon nga usa ka epiko krus-continental nga panaw bisan karon, ug sa 1928 kini bisan pa labaw pa sa ingon nga gihatag sa kahimtang sa mga dalan. Ang kompaniya adunay usa ka punto sa pagpamatuod sa: ang ilang mga likod swingarm suspension setup - ang una sa iyang matang - masangyawan, ug makahimo pagpanaw sa mas dako nga distansiya kay sa mga kon dili masagubang. Engineer Guiseppe Guzzi naghimo sa biyahe sa upat ka semana.

Sa diha nga ang Norge si gisugdan pag-usab sa 2005, kini mitumaw uban sa hangin-tunnel-gidisenyo fairing ug sa usa ka modernong v-twin engine ug accoutrements, ug nahuman nga kaayo mao nga ride. Ang pamahayag sa katuyoan mao ang tin-aw, though it was not without its issues. Reports of an uncomfortable seat, vibration-happy handlebars and an overheating engine clouded an otherwise solid release.

ang 2011-2012 release cycle has seen a heavily redesigned model released, sporting a new fairing, lingkoranan, exhaust, mga basket nga gikargahan, electronically adjustable screen and eight-valve engine. According to press reports, up to 80% of the bike is new. Torque is up by 20% on the old model, alongside a 7% horsepower increase.

With great power also comes great comfort; the suspension is fully adjustable (and a tad firmer) and by all accounts of good quality, and the new seat has redressed the issues of the old.

The upgrades are much needed for a bike in a market dominated by old lineages of sport-tourers. It’s clear that Moto Guzzi are angling for the Norge to go toe-to-toe with Honda’s VFR1200, Triumph’s Sprint GT and other practical all-rounders that double as competent touring bikes. The Norge certainly sports the weight of a tourer – at 257kg without fuel, it is heavier than most competitorsbut it also boasts an impressive array of accessories.

With a standard set of luggage, heated grips, ABS and a bluetooth-enabled Tom Tom GPS, the rather painful-looking £11,549 price tag doesn’t seem so bad. This makes for an especially interesting comparison with BMW’s higher-tech and higher-price R1200RT. Though a full 24kg lighter than the Norge, the BMW is also a thousand pounds moreand that’s without heated grips or a GPS.

With this said, I can’t help feeling serious doubts about the Norge as a genuine all-rounder. The incredible weight and new seating position – an uneasy compromise between high, sporty pegs and upright handlebars – mean that if weaving through traffic is your everyday life there are a thousand other bikes that will make your life easier. Ingon nga miingon nga, if you have the upper arm strength to handle it and favour touring, the new Norge’s minimal nods to fun and performance may give your long ride the extra enjoyment a purebred tourer might fail to provide.

The final trick to making the most of the Norge’s considerable attributes is, alangan, money – and perhaps more of it than you have concerns about depreciation. ang 2012 edition has undergone changes large and small, and all are significant and go a long way towards justifying the “new bike” premium. To buy an older Norge would be to resign yourself to the constant knowledge that you aren’t experiencing the bike at its best.

This may not be a problem, alangan, and indeed you can find models over five years old for between five and seven thousand pounds. Even better, they don’t tend to venture above 20,000 milya, with 10,000-strong odometers a common sight. But they won’t be quite as spectacular and polished, and you’ll need to budget in 6,250-mile service intervals in any case.

The new Norge is a compelling motorcycle, and indeed a surprisingly practical one. On the basis of research alone, how highly I recommend it comes down in large part to how much you fancy your chances hauling it around a u-turn in the middle of nowhere halfway across Europe. If it passes that test, it might just be one of the best deals on the grand touring market today.
