    what are you talking about? That's WAY better looking than the strom, multistrada or GS. and although I don't think Uly's are that ugly, they are plain. This Guzzi's much more fun to look at. a single sided swingarm with spoked wheels? a bit odd, but I like it!

    Looks a bit like a Caponord to me. I like it.

    I wonder about the following though, having owned a Guzzi in the past.

    How much will it weigh?
    How will it shift?
    How will the swingarm hold up?
    How will the clutch perform?

    I agree that the looks are fine, but what is it going to DO BETTER than a Strom, GS, Uly, or Multistrada. Time will tell.

    Yes. I wondered about bags as well. IMO it is a good looking bike despite the old style dual headlight setup. And I'm glad to see the 19" front wheel. That motor has got to be one of the best looking designs I've ever seen. Seems extremely well balanced. Hate the exhaust can, but not a dealbreaker by any means. Price may be.

    I like it except for the huge can, but that'd be easy enough to change. Imagine the sound with an Akra on it :evil

    I personally like it a lot. Only thing that puzzles me is why the frame tubing is so small (diameter) and will it hold up in the rough. Other than that, I could get very interested in adding one to my garage.:wink:

    WOW, well braced meaty forks, dual lights, spoked wheels, confort looking seat, large looking tank, seems like good wind protection, 110 horses, beautiful Italian styling and its a GUZZI.
    Its a winner, bring it my money is waiting. :clap

    headlights are old school ugly. With a poor service network in the USA, this bike will struggle to get to market.

    Since when is old school ugly, check out the MGNOC.COM network and compare to suzuki, bmw or any other. Germany is motoguzzi no.1 market for a reason, they understand good enginnering.

    Looks alot like the new Tiger from some angles. I also question the dealer support, but I hope Guzzi does well in the US.
