Light, powerful and nimble? What do you consider a heavy bike?

Far from light...
Far from nimble...
Not bad on power...


But I agree with the looks. It looks better than the competitors in it's class.


But I'd rather have the Guzzi above (even though I'd look like a gorilla on a moped-6'5", 250lbs).

Hey Justin, I rode my Megamoto over to the dealer to check out a Guzzi Griz...I'm only 5'11 and it felt cramped- Maybe 'cause the MM has so much room! The MM is a keeper dude!

I think it's a great cruiser even a sport cruiser, much nicer than Harley's but definitley not light and nimble.

light and nimble compared to a sportbike? you're right. standing on it's own though? terrible bit of fun
