2016 Moto Guzzi V7 II Stornello – First Ride Review

Stornello_featured

No, you’re not imagining things. Scrambler-style bikes are everywhere these days. Triumph arguably got there first with its eponymous Scrambler back in 2008, while Ducati’s 803cc Scrambler has been selling like hotcakes over the two years it’s been available. Heck, even BMW’s ginned up a scrambler out of the R nineT platform. And that’s just the OEMs; Bike EXIF is ...

Moto Guzzi showed two new variants on the California 1400 platform at the Italian EICMA show that will join the Touring and Custom models in U.S. dealerships in the summer of 2015.

Retrospective: Moto Guzzi Eldorado 850: 1972-1974

web-IMG_2456

Change can be good, even when it’s incremental. When Moto Guzzi upped the ante with the 850 Eldorado, replacing the 750 Ambassador, it was all good. The new model had a slightly larger engine, another gear in the transmission, neither anything to complain about.

Road Test: 2012 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX

web-AN8E3473

If there are any stretches of paved road left in the U.S. with more than 200 miles between gas stations, I’d sure like to know about them. Highway 140 from Winnemucca, Nevada, to Lakeview, Oregon (part of the historic Winnemucca to the Sea Highway), used to be one, but now there’s gas after about 130 miles at Denio Junction. These ...
