Why Choose a Moto Guzzi Motorbike?

Despite going through some difficult times, Moto Guzzi is on the comeback after it was bought out by Piaggio.

Moto Guzzi has always been a famous name in motorbikes, thanks mainly to its racing prowess in GP events in the 1950s, but it needed rescuing by the ever-expanding Piaggio and it’s thriving once more.

Moto Guzzi V7 CLASSIC

None of the V7 machines can be classed as a sports bike...even the ones dressed up to look like they are. What they are is a good way to have fun on the road and keep your licence. You can forget the apparently low power figures, this is a real bike for the road and not the race track. It's quite capable of out performing most riders in the same way most cars are better then their drivers. Don't think you'll be doing much two up riding unless you're both built like racing snakes. The seat is a bit too short for that in my opinion; in fact the whole bike can best be described as compact. It does feel like a proper motorcycle with the cylinder heads poking out from under the tank, and it is a petrol tank not an air box, and it has just the right frequency of vibration so it feels like you're riding a proper bike.

The plastic tank models do have a problem with ethanol.......you've been told. Dealers are a bit thin on the ground but there are a number of owner's groups who will point you in the right direction for the saints and sinners. One problem is fuel which takes longer to get, mainly because people want to come over and talk to you about the bike. This is a Marmite bike and you either get it or you don't. Take one out for a very long test ride then decide.

The Moto Guzzi pulls strongly over a wide range of revs, making it an easy bike to ride. I have had no problems with it to date. It is a real classic bike with a 40 year old engine design and this includes minor vibration at certain revs, but nothing intrusive. When you stop there is usually someone wanting to have a chat about it. The finish is of high quality and the electrics have been trouble free, probably due to Piaggio taking over Moto Guzzi a few years ago.

Great engine, early model probs. have been sorted. Engine always feels unstressed at any speed. Good comfort when suspension is set up to suit. Gearbox is an absolute joy to use. Handling is superb. My only gripe is there is no way of lowering the seat height other than having the seat cut out. A reduction on the rear shock/ suspension set up would help those of us who are a normal height, not 6 footers. I have had 100% reliability what's not to like.

Moto Guzzi 1200 SPORT 8V
Very happy with my 1200 Sport. It does what I expected very well. It looks good, out of the ordinary and has that wonderful V-twin sound and torque. Very happy with my 1200 Sport. It does what I expected very well. It looks good, out of the ordinary and has that wonderful V-twin sound and torque.
