batik-batik: Moto Guzzi Norge

The Moto Guzzi Norge has been on the periphery of my awareness of touring bikes for some time. Isa sa mga mas kapansin-pansin na mga modelo sa merkado, ito rin ang mangyayari sa maging isa sa mga pinakamahusay na napresyuhan at pinaka-praktikal na - kung din isa sa mga heaviest. Sa pamamagitan ng isang bagong modelo na inilabas nitong nakaraang taon, bilang bahagi ng isang hindi humuhupa pagsisikap upang ilagay ang Moto Guzzi sa mainstream, ang Norge ay imposible upang huwag pansinin ang kahit na sa masikip na paglilibot sa araw na ito sa merkado.

Tulad ng maraming Italian firms motorsiklo, Moto Guzzi ay hindi kapani-paniwalang maipagmamalaki ng kanyang pamana, at ang Norge ay may partikular na mga espesyal na isa. Ito ay pinangalanang matapos ang GT Norge, groundbreaking ng kumpanya 1928 modelo - ang sarili na pinangalanan para sa airship na ay ang unang upang lumipad sa ibabaw ng North Pole. 500cc Ang GT Norge nakatapos ng 4,000-milya test ride mula sa Italian HQ ng kumpanya upang Norway Lapland, sa loob gilid ng Arctic Circle.

Ito ay ang uri ng ride gusto namin-uri-uriin bilang isang astig na cross-continental trek kahit ngayon, at sa 1928 ito ay kahit na mas kaya ibinigay ang estado ng mga kalsada. Ang kumpanya ay nagkaroon ng isang punto upang patunayan: kanilang likuran swingarm suspension setup - ang una sa uri nito - nagtrabaho, at maaaring paganahin ang mga paglalakbay ng mas higit na distances kaysa sa kung hindi man ay matitiis. Engineer Giuseppe Guzzi ginawa ang biyahe sa apat na linggo.

Kapag ang Norge ay reintroduced sa 2005, ito lumitaw na may wind-tunnel-designed pagpapatas at modernong v-twin engine at accoutrements, at natapos na napaka-parehong biyahe. Ang pahayag ng layunin ay malinaw, though it was not without its issues. Reports of an uncomfortable seat, vibration-happy handlebars and an overheating engine clouded an otherwise solid release.

ang 2011-2012 release cycle has seen a heavily redesigned model released, sporting a new fairing, upuan, exhaust, panniers, electronically adjustable screen and eight-valve engine. According to press reports, up to 80% of the bike is new. Torque is up by 20% on the old model, alongside a 7% horsepower increase.

With great power also comes great comfort; the suspension is fully adjustable (and a tad firmer) and by all accounts of good quality, and the new seat has redressed the issues of the old.

The upgrades are much needed for a bike in a market dominated by old lineages of sport-tourers. It’s clear that Moto Guzzi are angling for the Norge to go toe-to-toe with Honda’s VFR1200, Triumph’s Sprint GT and other practical all-rounders that double as competent touring bikes. The Norge certainly sports the weight of a tourer – at 257kg without fuel, it is heavier than most competitorsbut it also boasts an impressive array of accessories.

With a standard set of luggage, heated grips, ABS and a bluetooth-enabled Tom Tom GPS, the rather painful-looking £11,549 price tag doesn’t seem so bad. This makes for an especially interesting comparison with BMW’s higher-tech and higher-price R1200RT. Though a full 24kg lighter than the Norge, the BMW is also a thousand pounds moreand that’s without heated grips or a GPS.

With this said, I can’t help feeling serious doubts about the Norge as a genuine all-rounder. The incredible weight and new seating position – an uneasy compromise between high, sporty pegs and upright handlebars – mean that if weaving through traffic is your everyday life there are a thousand other bikes that will make your life easier. Having said that, if you have the upper arm strength to handle it and favour touring, the new Norge’s minimal nods to fun and performance may give your long ride the extra enjoyment a purebred tourer might fail to provide.

The final trick to making the most of the Norge’s considerable attributes is, of course, money – and perhaps more of it than you have concerns about depreciation. ang 2012 edition has undergone changes large and small, and all are significant and go a long way towards justifying the “new bike” premium. To buy an older Norge would be to resign yourself to the constant knowledge that you aren’t experiencing the bike at its best.

This may not be a problem, of course, and indeed you can find models over five years old for between five and seven thousand pounds. Even better, they don’t tend to venture above 20,000 miles, with 10,000-strong odometers a common sight. But they won’t be quite as spectacular and polished, and you’ll need to budget in 6,250-mile service intervals in any case.

The new Norge is a compelling motorcycle, and indeed a surprisingly practical one. On the basis of research alone, how highly I recommend it comes down in large part to how much you fancy your chances hauling it around a u-turn in the middle of nowhere halfway across Europe. If it passes that test, it might just be one of the best deals on the grand touring market today.
