Had the chance to put a deposit to reserve a HP4 Competition yesterday. Leaving the checkbook at home probably saved my life.




I'm in love with this bike. I know it's more bike than I need but I still want it.

I'm sooo smitten for one of these. If only my income would comply again!
I really need to test ride one. Or maybe not!

There must be a resurgence in desire for classic bikes. This is a model I walked by in the dealership a hundred times and never gave it a second look. Then one day it was: wow, that's a good looking motorcycle.
Took delivery of a 90th anniversary edition a few weeks ago. What a fun ride.

I can't agree with her gear choices (not even gloves?), but I'd love to have the bike.

These things are beautiful, simple to work on and maintain, and very capable.

I had a Guzzi and love the Calis but that new 1400... I don't know about the tank cut-outs for the heads and the squared off bags don't seem to match the rest of the bike. If it looked a lot more like the Cali Vintage I'd be game for one.

I'm not seeing "squared off bags".

For the longest time I figured if I got a touring bike it would be a Road King. Now, it would be one of these. Gorgeous.

If they were a little cheaper I'd love to own a California. So nice!

The bag of the bag doesn't have an organic appearance like the vintage. More like a square bag with the edges rounded off, IMHO.

+1

I like Moto Guzzi stuff but have absolutely NO INTEREST in the cruiser
market, and I almost wet myself when I saw that bike in person for
the first time.

There's one aspect of it that doesn't show that much in pictures - that
bike is HUGE.
