South Africa News Breva. by Cynthia Tolmie

My is getting older and I would like a new bike. Jimmy and I invited to the opening of the Guzzi in Johannesburg. They had the full of bikes on the floor.

During the I spotted a couple of bikes might fit the bill, but the shop was with people and no chance to a closer look at what had to offer.

Not to be put off we were back at the at the first opportunity. I looked at the new EV, right I just looked, I never be able to handle a of that size, being challenged, my choice was very The only two bikes that my fancy and looked as though might fit my requirements were the Special and the Jackal.

The Sport Special was ideal, the height and balance, but when I aboard, the bike was too wide, the covers just stuck out a bit too the wider the bike the less the cross the Sport Special off the very disappointing.

The Jackal was a bit than the Sport, but I’m I could get used to the height the Jackal was not as wide as the Sport, could definitely be my next I tried to lift the bike off the stand and found that the of the bars made it extremely if not impossible, so scratch the Jackal off the

The Moto Guzzi 750cc was out of the question, I did not like the chopper and it was a bit on the tall side.

Would I ever get something I really liked and could without any problems, the prospect to be getting further and further

Then, out of the mist rose the this would certainly be the bike, everything about it was for me, size, height, and styling. the Ippogrifo project was cancelled, now.

Jimmy contacted those had ridden them and all the reports were positive, the bike was low if it was fitted with the low seat, it like a bicycle, all feedback positive.

Luigi Riva the Italian representative did a factory and a test ride on the Breva, with positive results. felt like the bike for me.

One day we a slip from the post to collect an envelope from the it was too large to deliver, it was from On opening it, it was a brochure from mille gracia Luigi, on the Luigi mentioned in his letter it may help me to decide, little did he this was the straw that the camel’s back. I had to have

The deciding factor was the Breva a magnificent colour.

Things are we are in the process of securing an Italian to ship to South Africa, we are of the dealer that Jimmy got his from, he supplied service to none, without any problems, so we support him if he can deliver the goods.

we can proceed with anything we to be in possession of an Import Permit, an has been submitted and depending on the of the application, will decide happens next.
