What is the reason for not using the single sided swingarm?
That's perfect bike! Good engine size, great style and it's Guzzi :)
How many concept bikes have turn signals, switchgear, and license plate holders? And a web site.
This is the bike I've been waiting for (with the Yamaha T7).
Totally agree. Other than a few tweaks and I'm sure they'll have to put a horsey huge muffler on it to get it into country, I think this thing is basically a done deal.
You could also argue a standard swingarm is stronger on tougher terrain.
I'll await details of what resides on top of the barrels before making a judgement. It could be a truly different head design. It could just be another smallblock hash-over with a couple of extra valves.
I have never willingly given a car/bike salesman my contact info in my life... but I just called my 'local' dealer and begged them to take my email & phone and let me know the instant I can get on a waitlist
I like it. I just hope it's light enough to be manageable.
MG needs to get serious, and provide some more information !
Fine looking bike. Don't mind the spokes, but needs to have a rim that can take a tubeless tyre.
the concept at least looks like alpina spoked tubeless
It's going to be a 2018 model. The reason it's a standard swingarm is because it is using the V9 differential. It has Ohlins front and rear. Price coming soon.
Why would they do that? Speculation fuels interest on the net- the sad reality might not
Meanwhile, I'm going to keep enjoying the fantasy that this will be the elusive unicorn.
I don't care how many valves or widgets it has - so long as it's light (ish), reliable, has a decent fuel range and that magical guzzi grumble
The more I stare at it the more I like it. I'd guess the production bike won't have Ohlins, and the exhaust will certainly be different. But I like the bones. The V7 III I rode had a sweetheart of an engine; if they manage to combine those manners with the hyped 80hp, that'll be something. I really hope they can get it done with air-cooling, too.
One thing was bothering me about the bike until I noticed that it has no mirrors! Looking at the cockpit view it looks like the UFO looking things are where the mirrors attach? Still it looks much sleeker without the mirror and it has those narrow hand guards that look like they'd need replacing with actual metal backed ones.
I am quite firmly in the " Sign me Up! " category.
Depending on what the price ends up being.
You can get Ohlins on the V7III Racer, so maybe they'll make it an available option for this as well.
