There is no pricing on the dual sport, but the off-road comes in three prices, $4K, $8K and $12K. Pricing is under Bikes|How Do I Get One?

I don't see US or Canadian flags, so I assume FX Bikes will not be available in N America?

Looked at this nice older Guzzi California today. Could be a fun local two-up cruiser.

You're referring to the language selector.

Regarding the bikes...
For me the coolest aspect of them is, because of their light weight, the ability to lift over obstacles. Or, undo them from a bad spot.

The website is pretty weak on information. They indicate 125lbs for the high end model but don't say what the $4k model weighs, as just one example.

The standard motor looks to be the ubiquitous Chinese Lifan motor of which one can buy for roughly $250., complete.

I'd have to be awfully flush to want to spend $12k on something like that, or even $8k. Maybe 4.

It is a '97 with ~34k miles and at a dealer, they are asking $3k. I don't think that's too far out of line.

I do like the mid-positioned floorboards. Not nearly as goofy a seating position as most of the other stuff I've looked at (including the Triumph America, which I thought would be a touch more standard).

Supply and demand. Most people hold onto their Guzzis, thus at any given time, there aren't too many for sale. Look at the price of used Harleys of the same year, and you'll see that the Guzzis aren't too unreasonably priced.

Based on the condition which appears to be stellar It seems a good buy, but I bet they have a little wiggle room. Let us know if you get it.

Sounds reasonable to me too,but I don't really know that much about Guzzi's.
I was eyeballing an 04 EV11 California with less than 8,000 miles for 5K.

Yep. I've wasted 3 grand on a lot worse machines. That's a peach.

These are really starting to grow on me. That could be expensive.
