Moto Guzzi Scrambler for 2012

Not "Old School", but I thought some of you might like to see the Moto Guzzi Scrambler which was shown at their International Dealers Show. Scheduled to be sold in 2012.

The V7 Classic is about $9,000 list... I'd imagine $9,000 to $10,000 for the Scrambler (extra cost will most likely be due to slightly longer suspension).

That's in USD by the way.

I still can't find out if the new 2012 California is Tonti-based or not. Looks like dual shocks, so maybe not a CARC, but all I have seen are the same fuzzy pics everyone else has.

I like those tires on the Scrambler, though. Pirelli whatsits? I was thinking about putting Distanzias on my Monster, but what are those lovelies?

IMO that is ridiculous and looks silly. And it needs a skid plate.

Gotta agree with your call about the skid plate, too much belly hanging out on that beast, don't mind the overall look though.

I think it's a bit silly too! Trying alittle too hard to get in on the scrambler thing and look like something it's not. I do like guzzi's and that V7 is quite nice!!

Shape of the R/H pipe is good, if they did the same on the left it might look half-decent then, wonder what size fuel tank?
