Why are bike manufactures obsessed with building pig ugly,overweight,over comlplicated and expensive bikes for the adv market, especially when BMW has that covered with their range of poser bikes. I'd like to see more lightweight 650 to 800cc bikes, singles and twins Light,cheap,basic,easy to modify and with decent fuel economy/tank range.


Cheers,
Dave

Amen - a 850cc Guzzi would make me aweful happy...especially if they shaved some serious lbs.

That fairing looks very wrong. I like the rest of it though...

Guzzi is supposed to have some surprise(s) at the Milan show this week. Maybe a new Quota?

Adventure bike???

Funny....the link describes theses as "Adventure Bikes' more like the 1050 tiger than the BMW GS. The abomonation of the word 'Adventure' has begun.
