This non-standard 850 T5 is one I am drooling over as of late:

Man that Nevada is beautiful. Don't believe I've ever sen one in person. I'm a Life member of the MGNOC and have owned 13 Guzzi's. Had a V50 111 and a V65 SP. Don't know much about the Nevada. Do they still make it today? Try to go to the Kansas MGNOC Rally every couple years. Good to see a Guzzi thread.

Too bad that the mods didn't weed out the shite posts from the Bavarians, and merge it with the other Guzzi photo thread...



But hey, it's another Guzzi thread and no one uses the search function anyway!

Buying this from a friend don't know where he got it. Waiting on the title right now. Not sure if they make a Nevada here in the states. I did a search on the internet and they make a 2012 Nevada. Information on them seems a little scarce.

Now looking for a service manual and accessories. I'm not going to do much cause I like the classic style.
Been told it's a girly bike since it's light, sits low and is relatively slow. But I'm getting old now so I think it will suit me. I'm comfortable with my manhood

I was looking at some other Nevada's. All of them seem to have the pipes blued. Do you need to
buy one of those efi kits to change the mixture.

It's in my garage. Bought it from a friend in Indianapolis who found it languishing in an Asian dealership in suburban Chicago last year. Just over 8,000 on the clock.

This was my Nevada that I bought new in 2006 and sold to a friend last October so I could buy my Harley:



Moto Guzzi has updated the Nevada this year, getting rid of the only thing I didn't really like about the bike, the fake chrome airscoops under the tank.

It's pretty much the same bike as the V7 Classic and Racer, just different cosmetics. The are light and low to the ground. I'm 5'10" and 185 lb, and found it slightly cramped for rides longer than an hour or so. It wouldn't be my first choice to cross the great plains, but it's well-suited for twisty mountain roads in Central Europe.
