First Guzzi Breva 750 Bike

The Breva 750ie was one of the first new to emerge from the Mandello on the shores of Lake Como, the take over of the ailing Guzzi company by the Aprilia a couple of years ago. in the UK at the beginning of 2003, the Breva was a new of Guzzi that maintained the traditional values in a package had design cues that aimed at a younger market.

At its is the trade mark 90-degree V-twin engine that appeared way back in 1967 in the V7, although it’s been refined and updated since but the 2-valve head is still operated although the fueling is now by a Magnetti-Marelli injection system. retained is the shaft drive to the wheel and the double cradle frame. All of these visual leave you in no doubt that is a Moto Guzzi, but the whole has very contemporary look to it.

The that I had on test was fitted two optional extras, a plexiglas that replaced the standard bikini fairing, and the Lady that lowered the seat from 790mm to 760mm. The windshield did an excellent job of keeping the of the weather off me and deflecting the airstream my helmet, but at the same time some extra wind The lowered seat would be an addition for those of a shortened leg but being just under 6 tall myself and having a normal leg length, I found the position a bit like sitting in an and my knees were well-bent both feet flat on the

The whole package looked well finished and put together, and the bike was first registered 12 months previously, there no signs of corrosion on the fasteners and and everything looked to be in almost condition. But it’s also pointing out that the bike had done 1,100 miles new so it hadn’t really had a very life.

It’s an easy of the leg over the low well-padded saddle, and you turn the ignition key all the lights on and the analogue dials swing to the stops to let you know everything’s OK. A prod of the starter button and the rumbles into life. The chrome exhausts look but they and the 3-way catalyst are far too at meeting the euro-noise limits, and the thing sounds a little

Don’t worry too much as this is a bike that you can through every part of body and you don’t really a noisy pipe to release its Get the bike on the move and the engine throbs through the frame, you in no doubt that this is a The wide bars on the Breva it great maneuverability and all the controls easily and without fuss.

The bar-mounted mirrors give an view to the rear and are clear and at all speeds.

Guzzi’s have a bit of when it comes to gearboxes, and the one on the is no exception. However, instead of plagued by false neutrals as is the case, this one had a false On too many occasions, selecting from neutral when simply extinguishes the neutral Release the smooth and light — and nothing happens. Try — zero movement.

trial and error I found the method was to blip the throttle in and while the revs were pull in the clutch and bang it first. This nearly worked, but a couple of times it out of gear almost as soon as it moving. The whole thing was a bit of which was a shame because as as you got into second the gearchange was a — clutchless upchanges smooth and slick and traveling up and the ratios was a pleasure.

Not that you to play with the box that as this engine develops so torque right across the that it will pull no matter what the speed and And the injection system was flawless.

Assuming that you can get it into gear, the Breva has an impressive trick up its sleeve. Find level ground, put your hand behind back (or in pocket), gently release the and the bike will move off only a small dip in the tickover Now release the clutch fully and the will chug along happily at about 5 or 6 mph on tickover.

The is far too soft and under-damped while the is the exact opposite. Small will really jar the backside warning as the front wheel has over them without a

Not a real problem, as the well-padded will soak up a lot of the impact. if you catch a bump mid-corner the bike well leant then the front gets shakey and on one occasion almost the bars out of my hands. This too clever, especially as the most purchaser of the Breva is a rider a great deal of riding

The soft front forks mean that the front quite dramatically under as the four pot Brembo caliper the single front disc However this is easily by sharing the braking load the powerful and progressive rear

For a ‘modern’ design, the Breva is with strangely narrow rubber, 110 at the front and 130 at the rear. The bike came with BT45s, and while they gave any worries as far as grip was they did have a tendency to over imperfections and joins in the surface. I can’t help that 120 fronts and 160 rears cure this problem and at the time improve the appearance of the

But the real solution is not to ride the as if it was a sports bike, something it quite obviously isn’t. is a bike that ‘s for relaxed and easy-going travel A and B, although with it’s handling, low centre of gravity, steering lock and smooth, torque, it would also an excellent commuter. It’s a that there are only two points on the bike, although Guzzi can supply hard if you want to go touring.

The Breva 750 will cruise happily, effortlessly, and comfortably all day at 85-90 mph, and if you really the throttle wide open the bike will get into low speeds. But the Breva isn’t happy at these kind of so back it off and get back to more rates of progress.

The single headlamp gives a wide, beam when on dip, and the beam is good enough for mph night time travel. I the Breva for an overnight run down to Devon along a lot of unlit during this test, and I had no in seeing where I was going. the blood-red instrument illumination some getting used to and the … lights on the dash a little too bright for nighttime

Especially annoying was the bright red warning light button in the

Much less annoying, in positively welcomed was the fuel I’ll admit that I pootle along on the Breva the test and yet in spite of this I managed to get 57 mpg. With a tank this means a respectable 160 miles before the light comes on, and then still got a further 50 miles to a petrol station.

I’ll that this is the first that I’ve ridden a and I approached the test with a of scepticism that had largely fueled by apocryphal tales of bikes powered by tractor that were ridden by old duffers. The Breva 750 puts preconception well and truly touch. This is a modern Guzzi for the 21st century.

I can honestly say that I really riding the Breva. OK, it’s not and if I had one then I’d get the front revalved and resprung, and I’d the rear dampers as well Guzzi can supply uprated but that V-twin engine is a gem and the whole package is a very ride for the less press-on of progress. Having said I can’t wait to get my hands on the 1100 when it comes out this year.
