At the recent annual Piaggio Group international dealer meeting in Monte Carlo on the 27th and 28th January there were a couple of surprises in store. A brand new Moto Guzzi California and a Scrambler version of the V7 were unveiled by the Group Chairman and Chief Executive Roberto Colaninno as a sign of the group’s product strategy for the future: Moto Guzzi concentrating on GT, Trail and Custom whilst the sister brand Aprillia will concentrate on hypersport and supersport models.
Boasting a 1400cc transverse V90 twin-cylinder engine, new wheels, brakes and suspension the new Moto Guzzi California is sure to continue the popularity it has already gained across five continents. Synonomous with a generously sized tank and saddle the California offers a very comfortable ride together with reliability and of course performance and the new valve covers heighten the style making the new version even more irresistable.
Another “classic” looking new model is born in the V7 Scrambler which is equally as interesting and pleasing to the eye! Built on the famous V7 Classic frame and fitted with a 750cc small-block engine the Scrambler’s chrome trim, spoked wheels and sporty look echoes the 175 Lodola and this is amplified with the low headlamp and fully integrated instrument panel. A distinctive feature of the new V7 is the exhaust system with two raised side-by-side silencers adding to the overall aesthetic appeal!
