To most modern day motorcycle MotoGuzzi is almost unknown. has been fighting for to keep doors open for almost Guzzi’s problems can be clearly at the feet of it’s previous 2

But the real … blow to the came during the early when it became clear the the had been gutted and left for Guzzi had been in similar bad when in the early 1970’s the of the Iconic Guzzi V-Twin saved the company. Making the 90 degree shaft drive as legendary as Ducati or Harley

Today young motorcycle of today do not realize that was really a company that most of it’s racing on the back of … single bikes. Or even that Guzzi ever was a championship house. However much Alfa Romero, Moto built almost every engine layout possble. The proof of this is the legendary V8 Also during the pre-WWII Guzzi was the most dominant company in Italy.

I could be claimed more important and than it’s rival

Guzzi was again dealt fatal blow to it’s when after the take by Aprilia, the steep down in motorcycle sales ripped the out of Aprilia and it’s over underperforming sales forced into controlled recievership. But for there has always been one thread that has allowed the to creep forward even out of money. Which was often of the 20 years.

So we need to skip back to the 1980’s to find the real point for the foundations of the MGS-01 we see today. Also by looking at the we will see how far the shadow of MGS exceeds any concept by Guzzi in the last 30

All we have to do is look at the cylinder of the MGS-01 to know that engine did not come from the Because the Centauro’s engine was the Daytona engine in a detuned The 4 Valve twin was created for the superbike project.

The Centuaro got the the basic engine because the was to make a highly stylized bike to support the development and costs of the Daytona engine Only one problem and that was MotoGuzzi was not making any effort to get of the Daytona for the USA as they expected to everything they could to the German and Japanese markets. A any fan knows almost none of the were ever imported.

though MotoGuzzi’s did bring Dr on board to help with a racing program. The Daytona’s died due to lack of funding.

Guzzi also had another that it refused to acknowledge and was the success of the new superbike the legendary 851. The 851 sucked out all of the potential for the Daytona. As Raymond Roche winning and after the first superbike championship victory of Guzzi’s superbike hopes wipped out in total.

DeTomaso did not fill the orders by racers who Daytona’s with full kits.

Now we skip ahead to 20 years and see how the Daytona 4 valve program has been reborn a 6 speed gear box from the program. Again what we has real possibilities IF. the factory to make a production street version for the world in quanity. As any Guzzi race bike is a completly different concept as to how to get it to victory circle.

So Fast to 2002, the new Guzzi management the Style Laboratory in order to new products using the talents of industrial designers motorcycle such as Ghezzi Brian the sole aim of designing motorcycles new technology and modern style that have a true Guzzi flare.

So Ghezzi were also put in the hot seat as given little time to a fresh concept and have it to present for the Intermot 2002 in Munich. That was a total of months!

As so often is the case in design less is more. Guzzi’s bikes have always without frills, and very With a umistakable sense of and mission.

Just look at the 850 LeMans 1 and you will also see a forward of basic line.

Any motocycle design is wrapped in the of the primal mission of motorcycling. It be easy to ride and have the raw of mechanicals exposed in a blend of before form. Then the result will be a form communicates the personality of brand and that give Guzzi’s a distinct from any other period.

In the case of the GSM-01 this has been done sense of poetry that no can overshadow.

When the Intermot opened to the public the MGS-01, was the darling of the show. Public was enthusasticly wild. Press of the show reflected a similar and excitement.

The biggest question would this concept actually see production. Needless to say we now that the publics strong pushed the Moto Guzzi to breath life into the

The public’s demands for the MSG-01, the Guzzi boys back in del Lario with thousands of Now the next big question is if when an actual street legal of the MSG-01 make it to both the USA and the Once again the biggest here will be getting the to customers. That has always the down fall of Guzzi in the The Ghezzi Brian development also has other exciting new that are in theory heading production.

Only time will

MGS-01 Corsa has dramaticly power than any version of the old motor, even in a stage 3 kit. This motor is a air-cooled 1,256cc four-…, 4 in Nymonic. Also there is a bit of F-1 that has crept into monster.

A set of high compression Cosworth Pistons, matched up to cylinders, and bushings, replaced bearings.

Needless to say air cooling is stone-age technology but in this it supplies the required cooling out the need of additional water-cooling This engine is a powerful which pumps out both from the very lowest end of the and like any V-twin it delivers delivery without any sudden Yes this is a shaft drive Is that a problem?

Not really as the 2 shaft is devoid of the shaft problems that caused to racers some 30 years

Ok, now lets take a look at actually makes the MGS-01 a race ready package. Now this is a race only So that means there is no for headlights, tale lights. So now we why it comes with race

But what makes all race successful is it’s suspension Guzzi starts off on the right

First we have a very wheel base attached to Magnesium race wheels. are hooked up to Brembo’s best floating disc’s and gold brakes. To make sure the has pin-point raod holding at any Ohlins upside-down forks.

In the we find an extra long Alloy box section swingarm. the rear suspension is driven by a shockabsorder in a vertical position, just behind the engine, creates the opportunity for a 15 liter

Also we would like to time to thank our friends at County -Motorsports. These treated us great and made feature story on the MSG-01 We suggest that if your a Guzzi or Triumph addict, or looking for a first class Visit these guys as are located in the heart of the OC. Just off the Freeway at Edinger, Santa

About one block east of the BMW They have a strong of Guzzi’s best. Don’t to tell them your a reader!!

The engine is being held in by a very rigid rectangular steel spar frame. what we see is a focus on keeping the down and due the the basic operation of the Guzzi V-twin design a complex frame is not required. So as is the case.

You can actually gain speed by having a better to weight ratio, while higher cornering speeds and handling.

I would be a good to our younger readers that Baldwin won the AMA championship on an 850 Le Mans, giving up some 50 horsepower. though that was back in the the rules of math and physics do not As proven by our friends at Ducati and the number of superbike victories, and

The MSG-01 look more up the challenge of AMA class racing on levels.
