Moto Guzzi’s California 1400 Touring in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains

Lone Pine and the almost-dry Owens Lake

Back roads make me happy. Two lanes, little traffic, preferably with lots of curves and undulations, rather like the better parts of California Routes 58, 120 and 178. Lots of gear changes, lots of lean, maybe a little braking on occasion when the yellow and black warning sign says 30 mph and the speedo... Read more »

2014 Moto Guzzi California 1400 Touring Road Test

The California 1400 Touring offers a classic style.

Flashback to 1970. Richard Nixon is in the White House, American troops are in Vietnam and the AMC Gremlin is in dealerships. Little known in the U.S. at the time, Moto Guzzi captures a slice of the lucrative police market with a full-dress version of the Eldorado 850, which was more powerful, more maneuverable,... Read more »

2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Stone: Ridden & Rated

The Stone carries on the V7 tradition in fine, simple style, with upright seating, monotone paint and cast wheels.

The trio of V7s in Moto Guzzi’s 2013 lineup starts with the low-priced Stone, a gutsy name choice meant to convey the bike’s utter simplicity and strength, as in Stone Simple and Rock Solid. No argument there. Although its analog speedo and tach each have LCD readouts for the odometer, tripmeters,... Read more »

Retrospective: Moto Guzzi Eldorado 850: 1972-1974

1973 Moto Guzzi Eldorado 850.

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. This was a big, comfortable motorcycle... Read more »

Road Test: 2012 Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX

Holy handling, Batman! The masked Moto Guzzi Stelvio NTX carves corners like a bike with a wheelbase much shorter than it’s 60.4 inches.

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... Read more »

2011 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer Road Test

Good power, suspension and brakes made the Guzzi a joy to ride.

Vintage motorcycles are incredibly cool, but most riders are reluctant to put up with their drawbacks that can include meager power, lack of reliability and the potentially dangerous inconvenience of anti-stop brakes. What we would really prefer is a classic that performs like a modern bike—or a modern... Read more »
