Uku: Norge ni Guzzi ni moto

The Moto Guzzi Norge has been on the periphery of my awareness of touring bikes for some time. E dua na tale vakasakiti saraga ivakaraitaki vinaka ki na makete, e yaco talega me dua na priced vinaka duadua kei na vakayaco ka – kevaka talega e dua na kemudou. Vata kei na dua na ivakaraitaki vou vagalalataki oqo yabaki sa oti, me tiki ni dua na sasaga ni vakacauoca me ra vakaliuca na Moto Guzzi ena na matau, e sega ni rawa meda vakawalena sara mada ga ena makete ni itavi vakakodineita sinai nikua na Norge.

Me vaka ni vuqa na firms ni motovai Itali, Sa dau dokadoka na kena iyau na moto Guzzi, ka vakabibi ni digitaki e dua na Norge. E a vakayacani na Norge ni GT, na kabani vakasobuduru 1928 ivakaraitaki – vakaikoya vakayacani na airship e a imatai me vuka yani na kau ni Vualiku. Na 500cc GT Norge vakacavari vodo lori veitarogi ni 4,000 na maile mai VL Itali na kabani me nei Norway Lapland, e loma na bati ni na iwirini ni Arctic.

Sa ikoya na mataqali vodo eda na classify mada ga nikua me vaka e dua na ilakolako ni kauveilatai-veivalenivulagi epic, ka ena 1928 a soli vakalevu cake sara kina na ituvaki ni ena gaunisala. Na kabani o ya a dua na tikina me vakadinadinataka: a cakacaka na nodra ituvatuva ni vakalewenilotu ni susugi ni swingarm – na imatai ni kena mataqali –, ka me rawa kina na ilakolako ni veiyawaki iLutua ni noda bula mai na kena a kevaka e sega ni vosoti ko. Guzzi ni Guiseppe ena Idinia ni a gole ena va na macawa.

Ni na Norge a tivi e vakavurea tale ena 2005, sa basika na cagi-qara-caka fairing kei na e dua na idini ni vei-drua gauna oqo kei na accoutrements, kei na vakacavari ni vodo vata sara ga. A matata sara na itukutuku ni inaki, though it was not without its issues. Reports of an uncomfortable seat, vibration-happy handlebars and an overheating engine clouded an otherwise solid release.

Na 2011-2012 release cycle has seen a heavily redesigned model released, sporting a new fairing, veilewai, 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. Having said that, 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. Na 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 na maile, 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.
