Yes, they are still VERY cool.

I think the Racer, Classic, and Griso are still there.

 

Did you get yourself one, Scubasimon?

No I did not. The model I wanted is the V7 Special which they did not have and do not intend to bring in.

 

I also like the Stelvio NTX with the bigger tank but again it is a model they do not bring in.

True abt d NTX, it certainly has value for $ for the offroadworthiness. However, I feel that the region of SEAsia doesn't do a heavy off-roarer justice. It really starts to become meaningful once the terrain gets flat and wide like central china onwards. Otherwise a medium weight offroadworthiness circa 180-200kg dry would work better given out close terrain and tight mountain mud trails. Of course we have open terrains but they don't go for hundreds of kms. That's just my opinion which many100+ccGS owners would attest against. But everyone's got an opinion like we have A$$h01e5! ;-)

 

Here, for big bikes, road bikes do well, light and mid-weight off road do well.

 

BTW, Looi's brings in the new steel tank- totally revamped V7s. Go ask them! A Stone just came n for a very happy owner.

Hi guys..any of u know wats the price of 1200 sport corsa?n wats the pros n cons abt the bike?tanx

 

 

 

Hi Hakimi, I can't tell you about a 1200 sport the way that Sankar73 can, but I can te you what I like and know about it:

 

You already know that the 8v and less than 100cc more over the 1100 breva churns out >85horses more. That's already a major plus!

 

The ride position, compared to a breva is more sporty due to the standard handlebar o. Clamps compared to the breva's higher reach. If spot is what you prefer over upright, then you'd be sold.

 

Accessories -wise, you're in luck cause it shares the same chassis and body work as the breva and Norge. This means you have an array of pannier and box systems to make the an effective Lo g distance naked sport tourer. Woohoo!!

I did a relatively deep study of the reviews on the various pannier systems around and I believe the original panniers designe by Guzzi are far better than the Hepco&Becker ones and also large as well as well designed. (I hope to be able to write a review on it soon.)

 

I had a look and mounted one in Perth just last December. The beautiful white dials were reminicent of the sports machines and bikini fairing was really sleek. Here's a nice review;

Hope this helps! All the best in your search. In all cases, you won't regret getting on a Guzzi!

Hi Hakimi,

 

I ride the 1200 Sport 2V model (2 valve per cylinder. It has 7 horse power less than the 8V model). I am the third owner of this bike.

 

Sitting position is very sporty and not upright as you would expect from a naked roadster. The handlebar is very far forward for my model. But I have read that the new 8V model has a revised handlebar for a more relaxed sitting position. Anyway, I have changed the handlebar on my bike to an aftermarket handlebar too.

 

The bike handles beautifully and is very stable up to 210km/h when I tried it recently. It goes into corners with assurances but do not expect sportbikes handling like Ducati Monster and the Aprilia Tuono. I have installed a centre stand on mine so ground clearances in tight left corner can become an issue if I try to be too adventurous (anyway I am a very tame rider). Mine came with the original Aprilia side panniers but I have removed them as I have a ST11 for touring purpose.

 

The seat is a little low and the fuel tank is big (23lites) so it makes you sit into the bike. It would be nice if the seat is a little higher as I have a tall rider with a big ass. The bike is much heavier than the other naked bikes in its class (BMW R1200R) but it has a lot of torque that pulls its weight well.

 

I was looking for a Griso but when this came along I just grabbed it. And I am very happy with it. I think I made the right choice too.

 

I am not sure if the 1200 Sport Corsa is being brought in by Mah. I think it has been removed from MG's line-up too.

Hi Sankar73 n whitepomfret,

Tanx for ur input guys.I actualy fell in love with the sound n solid looks of the sport when i look her up on youtube.

She will a head turner for sure.1 day i will go to MAH n take a look.

Cheers

 

Hi Hakimi,

 

You may not find any MG at Mah. They only bring a few V7 models. There is only one Griso 1200 on display which belongs to a customer. You may have to approach other parallel importers if you really want a 1200 Sport. The Malaysia importer seems to be promoting the MG far better than Mah.

 

You are welcome to meet up with me to view mine in person.

I went for a ride on the Guzzi with some friends this morning. We did a lot of trunk roads.Oh boy, what a bike. It handled so wonderfully that I am falling in love with the bike. It is very stable in corners that you feel like you are riding a sports bike. The torque is so sweet that it pulls hard in all gears. i am very sure that all Guzzi riders feel the same way with their bike.

Hi guys,

 

I am riding the Bellagio.

 

Cheers.

 

Sweet sweet! I love the Bellagio - a Cali design with the CARC. I think I might just have some problems with the peg position and the saddle to peg height, being a long legged spider like me.

 

I'd love to see your bellagio in real life one day! :-)

 

ride safe!

Hi Guzzistas

 

I'm happy we've got this thread to connect Guzzistas in SG. this seems to be the most connectable thread for us. I thought the title could be tweaked (if technically possible), to remain relevant.

 

So I've asked Webmaster to tweak the thread title a bit to help this thread stay relevant to current. We must thank TS Gerd Holler for starting it back in 2006. we will carry on. This is what I sent. I hope he can help:

 

 

_________

 

 

Hi Kushinagar

 

How are you?

 

Firstly, thanks for the good work on SBF. We'd be lost without you!

 

My request:

 

Gerd.Holler started the MotoGuzzi Lovers 2008 thread back in 2006.

 

Lately, a few of us Guzzi fans have been starting to connect. I'm very encouraged.

 

The year 2008 in the thread title is misleading. It's a short thread, but it's the one we tend to turn to to discuss.

 

Would you be able to change the title that Gerd Holler started with, to a simple "Moto Guzzi Lovers" just remove the year. We still respect what Gerd started with, but it needs to meet the need of today and a yesteryear dating doesn't help.

 

Thanks very much!! :)

 

_____________

 

I hope this helps update the thread.

 

I'd like to have it connect SG Guzzista even better.

 

Cheers!
