斑: Moto Guzzi Norge

The Moto Guzzi Norge has been on the periphery of my awareness of touring bikes for some time. 作為市場上較為引人注目的車型, 這也恰好是一個最好的價格和最實際的 - 如果也最重的一個. 隨著新車型在過去的一年發布, 作為不懈的努力把摩托固斯在主流的一部分, 挪威將是不可能在當今擁擠的旅遊市場甚至無視.

像許多意大利摩托車公司, 摩托固斯是非常值得驕傲的遺產, 和挪威有一個特別特殊的一個. 這是在挪威GT得名, 該公司的開創性 1928 模型 - 自己命名,這是第一個在北極飛行的飛艇. 在500CC GT挪威完成了從公司總部意大利對挪威的拉普蘭4000英里的試乘, 在北極圈內邊緣.

它甚至今天的那種騎我們會作為一個史詩般的跨洲際跋涉分類, 在 1928 有人更是這樣給出的道路狀況. 該公司有一個點,以證明: 他們的後搖臂懸掛系統 - 的先河 - 工作, 並能實現比在其它方面容忍更大距離的旅程. 工程師朱塞佩固斯在四周做了旅行.

當挪威在被再 2005, 它出現了風洞設計的整流罩和一個現代化的V型雙缸發動機和裝備, 並完成了同樣的車程. 意圖的聲明非常明確, though it was not without its issues. Reports of an uncomfortable seat, vibration-happy handlebars and an overheating engine clouded an otherwise solid release.

該 2011-2012 release cycle has seen a heavily redesigned model released, sporting a new fairing, 座位, 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. 話說回來, 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, 當然, money – and perhaps more of it than you have concerns about depreciation. 該 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, 當然, 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 英里, 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.
