– 2005 Moto Guzzi California Titanium
California Titanium — Custom powercruiser with the legendary, updated 90º V-Twin with hydraulic self-adjusting valves. Brembo Gold Series brakes. Integral braking system. Aerodynamic sport fairing. An easy-riding, dynamite performance cruiser in the ultimate high-tech titanium metallic finish.
The conquest of distance
Titanium is light and exceptionally strong. It is commonly used in alloys for the aerospace industry and in advanced technical applications where a combination of strength and light weight is essential.
Titanium is the symbol of advanced technology. For 2003 it is also the high-tech inspiration for a very different motorcycle.
The California Titanium defies definitions. As a motorcycle, it is in a class of its own.
With its breathtaking top speed and precision cornering it rides like a supersport.
With its upright riding position and forward mounted footrests it has the comfort of a cruiser.
With its unmistakable styling, colour and graphics, it fears no rivals as a CafÃ© Racer.
And its 90° V-Twin engine, with hydraulic tappets and catalyzed exhaust, give it all the character of a Moto Guzzi.
The California Titanium is all of these things, because it establishes a uniquely personal feeling with its rider, based on equally personal sensations. The gear change for example inspires confidence instantly, thanks to its precise action, easy engagement, and quick-to-find neutral. The comfortable seat makes two up travelling a pleasure. And the sports windshield affords an impressive amount of protection.
Naturally, the chassis, shared with the Aluminium, is an exceptional piece of engineering too. It is designed to keep the bike stuck to the road, whatever the surface, while the powerful Brembo disc brakes ensure totally safe braking.
