    I donít know if this link will open properly, but Moto Guzzi just anounced a sharp looking new Sport Tourer with the first of its kind active aerodynamics.

    And its shaft drive!  :028:

     Tramp. It looks nice on the screen. My only question is it appears to lack the protection from the elements that is a Trophy's big attribute. Then as always [am I showing my age] it's made in Italy. But I would hope that the electrics have improved, a bit like the old English Lucas [Prince of darkness] problem. I'm sorry if I've offended all the Italian bike owners out their.  :164: :164:

    I put a larger Windscreen on my Trophy soon after I purchased it. An easy fix.

    On the face of it, my biggest concern is the smallish fuel tank. Moto Guzzis are typically fairly hefty as well...

    Let's just say that it will be interesting to follow developments...

    A Guzzi?  No thanks, I like to shower and comb my hair on a regular basis.

    I don't care for the negative comments about Italian manufacture or electrics - I traded my Sprint ST for a V85TT, and couldn't be happier. Sure there is more turbulence, but the throbbing engine, and exhaust note of a V-twin puts the triple to shame. The fuel range matches that of the Trophy, and I can comfortably go for hours, without worrying about an oily forecourt, or a suitable parking spot. The pleasure and ease of handling of the Guzzi means my Trophy is now idle, waiting for a continental tour (whenever that may be!). The announcement of Guzzi's new tourer happened a couple of months after my trade, but I'll certainly be looking at it closely. BTW, some of the worlds best engineers are or were Italian (as is Sophia Loren....)

    I understand all that, but based on the specifications, it does appear that Moto Guzzi is finally embracing the Modern Age, with liquid cooling, lean sensitive ABS & TCS, Ride Modes, Quickshifter, the first Active Aerodynamics, and adaptive suspension. Mind you, I definitely won't be first in line to buy one, but if the weight comes in around 500+ lbs. as I suspect, it makes a pretty good case as a Sport Touring platform, short of the questionable fuel Capacity. And I know that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, but to these old eyes, it looks gorgeous.  :015:
