euli: Moto Guzzi Norge

The Moto Guzzi Norge has been on the periphery of my awareness of touring bikes for some time. merkatuan modelo gehiago deigarrienetako bat, gertatzen da ere bat izan onenak tasatuak eta praktikoena - ere bada astunena bat. eredu berri bat kaleratu azken urte honetan, ahalegin nekaezinean bat Moto Guzzi jarri korronte batean parte gisa, Norge ezinezkoa da, nahiz eta ez ikusi, gaur egungo alpinismo ibilia merkatuan.

Italiako beste hainbat motozikleta enpresek Like, Moto Guzzi da oso bere ondarea harro, eta Norge bat bereziki berezia du. It GT Norge jasotzen du, konpainiaren aitzindari 1928 eredua - izeneko airship hori izan zen lehen Ipar poloan gainetik hegan egiteko bera. 500cc The GT Norge amaitu 4.000 miliako proba konpainiaren Italiako HQ batetik ibilaldi bat Norvegia Laponia, barruan Arctic Circle the ertzean.

Konpainiak puntu bat frogatzeko izan: Beren atzeko swingarm esekidura konfigurazioa - bere mota lehenengo - lan egin, eta distantzia handiagoa bidaietan hartutako jasangarriagoa ziren baino gaitu liteke. Ingeniari Guiseppe Guzzi bidaian egindako lau astetan.

Noiz Norge batean berriro zen 2005, sortu haize-tunel diseinatutako fairing eta v-bikiak motor modernoa eta accoutrements batekin, eta bukatu duten bidaia bera. asmo adierazpen argia zen, though it was not without its issues. Reports of an uncomfortable seat, vibration-happy handlebars and an overheating engine clouded an otherwise solid release.

The 2011-2012 release cycle has seen a heavily redesigned model released, sporting a new fairing, eserlekua, exhaust, panniers, 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. Hori esanda, 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, of course, money – and perhaps more of it than you have concerns about depreciation. The 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, of course, 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 miles, 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.
