Moto Guzzi Norge Review

The Norge 1200 is the recent (since 2005) “sport-touring” motorcycle offering in our brought to us by Italian maker, Guzzi.

Side note: might argue that the Concours14 is the “ newest ,” “ purpose-built ” in the motorcycle world, since it was in July 2007.  But that lineage goes back a 20 years earlier with the Concours it replaced.  However, the would follow that the is such a radical upgrade to the that it represents a completely bike.

  Anyway, for the purposes of article, we’ll accept intent that their C14 is, in an evolutionary progression along the Concourse lineage in spite of all its

OK, back to the Guzzi, which has itself firmly in the history of the universe as one of the oldest manufacturers in motorcycle production (begun in

Note: the term “ Sport-Tourer ” can be nebulous, due to the liberal categorizing of any moderately, performance-oriented bike, set up to go for a getaway. However, by my definition, a sport tourer needs the equipment:

Large fairing and to protect the rider from the

Saddlebags with generous capacity for rider and passenger

gas tank to go longer distances less fuel stops

drive to eliminate chain-drive while on the road

Hence, the Moto Guzzi 1200 has adequately defined within this category.

the very end of 2004, Moto has been owned by the Italian Piaggio . as one of its seven two-wheeled ( Aprilia, Derbi, Gilera, Guzzi, Piaggio, Vespa . and ), making scooters and motorcycles. The of those seven companies Piaggio the fourth largest of scooters and motorcycles in the world,

The depiction gets its name the earliest GT Norge made for enduring a difficult 4,000 test ride — in 1928 no — from the Moto Guzzi headquarters in Italy to just the Artic Circle of Norway’s Nord.  (“Norge” is synonymous “Norway”). This was a ride to call attention to, and prove the of the world’s first rear suspension. (Since then, swingarm suspensions have established their place as equipment the world over).

The Norge hearbeat pulses a 1200cc, 90° V-Twin.   And on the other of that equation, it can be brought to a with its standard ABS (which can be turned off).

I found the Guzzi Norge 1200 to be a and enjoyable ride.

Considered by most any owner of a Norge would enjoy riding bike any distance over and dale. The fairing offers protection, the saddlebags can store a amount of luggage for a rider and (in comparison to other sport-touring and the shaft drive will for low-maintenance riding for tens of of miles.

However, as a purpose-built, “sport-touring” it does not exist in a vacuum and of it would need to be compared to the sport-touring bikes in our world, of there only a handful:

to this cadre of compatriots . the 1200 does not really anything exceptional enough for performance-oriented riding to distinguish for a practical rider.

The fuel is only 6 gallons, which it one of the smallest tanks amongst the of purpose-built sport-tourers . which more stops for a fill-up, to its brethren.

At 71.3 horsepower (per Consumer News ) it it also one of the performance-oriented motorbikes of its class.

All by its this is a very enjoyable And if you happen to be love-struck by its design, is the bike for you.

But within the of its other European and Japanese it does not stand out as compelling in any specific area for a true, enthusiast, to warrant preference what else your can buy ($15,590 MSRP for the Norge And when you also add into the that Moto Guzzi has the dealer network of its sport-touring it would take a real to mark this machine as a for long-distance, sport-touring, motorcycle
