Looks like it's located under the gearbox, in front of the rear tire. Bit small lookin' battery though? Maybe 20-24Ah?
My smallblock will not kick himself to life with such a tiny batt. I have 30Ah under gearbox, but it's maybe bit colder here in Finland at spring/autumn..

The battery is located where the center stand would be, in an aluminum box. I basically went to napa and bought a battery with the same cca as the stock battery and it is much smaller. Works great by the way.

The Three Girls

After recently buying a modern bike (2007 Breva 1100), I'm now spoiled for choice. Each bike has its own strengths, weaknesses and distinct character so its my mood which dictates which bike gets hauled out of the garage.

I test rode a Norge a year back and loved the bike, its an all day rider for sure and the handling was excellent. I hope you enjoy it!

I would very much like to try out a Norge. I've sat on a few and like the ergos and many things about Guzzis. I didn't gel with the Stelvio too well but maybe the Norge might hit the spot???

Otherwise, I've always lusted after a LeMans Mrk 1.

Give me a shout sometime and you can take mine for a spin. I'm just down the road from you a bit. I may be up that direction on the 9th as we (PGR) may be doing a welcome home that evening.
