斑点: モトグッチノルゲ

The Moto Guzzi Norge has been on the periphery of my awareness of touring bikes for some time. 市場には多くの印象的なモデルの一つ, また、最高の価格と最も実用的なの一つであることを起こる - 最も重いの1にもならば. 新モデルではこの1年間にリリース, 主流でモトグッチを置くために絶え間ない努力の一環として、, ノルゲは、今日の混雑したツーリング市場でさえも無視することは不可能です.

多くのイタリアのオートバイの企業と同様に, モトグッチは、その遺産の非常に誇りに思っています, そして、ノルウェーは、特に特別なものを持っています. それは、GTノルゲにちなんで命名されました, 同社の画期的な 1928 モデル - 北極の上空を飛行した最初の飛行船にちなんで命名さそのもの. 500ccのGTノルゲは、ノルウェーのラップランドのに会社のイタリアのHQから4,000マイルの試乗を完了しました, 北極圏の内側エッジに.

それは私たちが今日も叙事詩クロス大陸トレッキングとして分類したい乗るのようなものです, そして、で 1928 それはなおさら道路の状態を与えられました. 同社は、証明するためにポイントを持っていました: 彼らのリアスイングアームサスペンションのセットアップ - その種の最初の - 加工さ, そうでなければ許容したよりも長い距離の旅を可能にすることができます. エンジニアジュゼッペGUZZIは4週間で旅行をしました.

ノルゲはに再導入されたとき 2005, それは風洞設計されたフェアリングと現代のVツインエンジンとの着用で登場しました, その非常に同じ乗り心地を完了. 目的の文は明らかでした, though it was not without its issues. Reports of an uncomfortable seat, vibration-happy handlebars and an overheating engine clouded an otherwise solid release.

ザ・ 2011-2012 release cycle has seen a heavily redesigned model released, sporting a new fairing, シート, 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. そうは言っても, 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. ザ・ 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 マイル, 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.
