    I can't wait for it to hit the showroom. I've already emailed my dealer to find out if they've been given a rough delivery time.

    I think it is just a concept, you never know with Guzzi. Hopefully they will build it.

    Looks production ready right down to turn signals. Like goldilocks and the three bears this might be the right size bed for me. Just tore up all my Dear Santa previous requests...

    Thank Dog its not based on the V7. I like the V7 but they just need more beans to pull this sled so this perfect.

    The engine is part of the V7/V9 family with single throttle bodies. But the rest of the bike is different! :)

    Good looking cycle. Interesting no pictures of it being ridden, so maybe not ready for production just yet, late '18 model?

    I'd love to see it in just red & white like the Stornello, but I could live with it just like it is. :thumb

    It's a different motor. A 5v apparently. Definitely a different transmission and swingarm.

    I can only hope this bike results in this thread approaching the Stelvio thread in length and passion. The more I look at this the more I like it.

    Do think the camel implies V85 camel? or just a prop.
