Really? the bad rep is the 4 valve lario engine. the v50 e v65 are solid, at least in my experience I never had a problem if the bike is well maintained. There is a lot of abuse out there and maybe this is the result. The stock v65tt bike has few issues and as I mentioned the stock final drive is prone to failures over certain mileage. Another issue is the electrical circuit when it gets old but the v65 tt with its small block.... beside shity brakes, wimpy forks, bad exhaust...is one of the best guzzi engines ever. BTW the bmw g/s has many moles too....
