Another Guzzi First: Moto Mavens Create A By Updating A Current Model

anyway, until you hop on it and hit the starter. nothing else like it is Come to think of it, the usual twitch as the engine turns feels far less pronounced in Guzzi, and it picks up revs in neutral. Could it be the new, flywheel?

Perhaps the revised ports or the reshaped pistons and chambers? Or maybe the modifications to the and ignition curves? Feels ah, sprightly in the way it revs-an adjective previously applied to a Moto far as we know-and pulling in the clutch and into first gear is a painless, nearly Japanese


Like all recent carbureted and injected, this one respond to throttle too smoothly around 3000 rpm, is only a problem of course for who insist on plodding around there. Slip the two-plate dry a tad and you’re right past and blasting off with the same swagger as an old muscle car. It’s true, the next snaps in with a simple of the toe. can this be?

The ergos are thanks, with adjustable riding on risers that them a good two inches than the ones on the 1100i. The nicely shaped; skinnyish it meets the fuel tank, and and there’s enough legroom.

The usual 40mm Marzocchi adjusts for rebound atop one tube, compression damping on the and you can reach down on the fly to adjust the WP compression damping (getting to its collar is a major tank-removal unfortunately). Both ends, and dampers, combined with the substantial heft, give up a compliant, never harsh as you burble along, sighting the classic white-faced Veglia and speedo.

We bitched about the Orto carbs’ way-too-heavy springs and Guzzi gave us fuel injection. Now they us a good gearbox, what’s to complain about?

Only From about 3500 to 5000 rpm-which equates to 65 to mph in top gear-this Guzzi sends pretty heavy vibes through those new clip-on The risers must be the culprit, other Guzzis that use the same engine and frame are smooth cruisers.

This Guzzi’s bars seem to come into sort of resonance with the engine’s secondary imbalance at speed, and an hour of cruising is about all most hands can It’s particularly tough home all shagged out after a few wrestling the bike around in the

In Europe it wouldn’t be a problem; the bike up to 95 or so and everything gets again, but you wouldn’t last in the home of the brave and the land of the riding that way unless a policeman. (Or cruise along 65-not an option for us.) final-drive gearing would but of course the shaft makes a bit of a project.

Guzzi’s already shoved pretty hefty weights the bar ends, and we were going to on more weight to experiment, but find any bolts the right and thread pitch. Guzzi the vibes get better as the engine in, and with 1300 miles it does seem to have slightly-that or our nerve endings died. In any case, that’s our complaint and it seems like a flaw.

And speaking of wrestling mountains, the works just all right in curvy-road sport mode. it’s still a heavy slightly heavier than its sibling, and in fact the i works as a sportbike.

For one thing, all Guzzis out with a rearward weight thanks mostly to the shaft we suppose, and the Sport’s higher means there’s even rider weight pressing on the front wheel. Given things, we don’t know shortening the bike’s trail to a 92mm was necessarily the way to go. Just along in a straight line bumps, the Sport’s front end of waggles to and fro like the tongue of a dog his head out a car window-never alarmingly, but like the front tire’s not what you’d call
