The Moto Guzzi Norge has been on the periphery of my awareness of touring bikes for some time. Ny iray amin'ireo modely manaitra kokoa eny an-tsena, izany ihany koa no mitranga ho iray amin'ireo tsara indrindra sy tena azo ampiharina priced - koa raha iray amin'ireo mavesatra indrindra. Miaraka amin'ny modely vaovao nivoaka tamin'ny taon-dasa, izay tafiditra ao nitsahatra ezaka hametraka Moto Guzzi ao amin'ny mahazatra, ny Norge tsy azo tsy miraharaha na dia eto amin'ity tsena be olona eran'i Boligaria.

Toy ny maro môtô orinasa Italiana, Moto Guzzi dia mampino mampirehareha ny lova, ary ny Norge manana tena manokana iray. Ny atao hoe taorian'ny GT Norge, ny orinasa fangadiana 1928 modely - mihitsy ny atao hoe ho afaka manidina izay no voalohany hanidina ambonin'ny Tendrontany Avaratra. Ny 500cc GT Norge nahavita iray kilaometatra 4000-fanandramana avy amin'ny orinasa Italiana HQ an'i Norvezy ny Laponie, ny ao anatiny lelan-Faribolan-tendrontany Avaratra.

Izany ny karazam-mitaingina isika Te manasokajy toy ny hazo fijaliana Epic-kontinanta diany na dia amin'izao fotoana izao, ary amin'ny 1928 dia bebe kokoa no nomena ny toetry ny lalana. Ny orinasa nanana teboka mba hanaporofoana: ny aoriana swingarm fampiatoana setup - ny voalohany amin'ny karazany - niasa, ary mety afaka nandehanany ny lehibe lavitra noho ireo raha tsy izany moramora. Injeniera Guiseppe Guzzi nanao ny nandeha tamin'ny herinandro efatra.

Rehefa Norge dia Naverina tany an- 2005, dia nivoaka tamin'ny rivotra-tunnel-natao fairing sy maoderina V-kambana maotera sy ny accoutrements, ary vita ihany fa tena mitaingina. Ny fanambarana ny fikasana dia mazava, 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, seza, 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, mazava ho azy, 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, mazava ho azy, 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 kilaometatra, 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.
