Moto Guzzi is heading to the Progressive International Motorcycle Show schedule at Long Beach, Calif., and we couldn’t be more excited!
We’ll have our entire 2017 lineup on display, highlighted by our newest models—the MGX-21, the V9 Bobber and Roamer, and the V7 III that include the Stone, Special, Racer and limited-edition Anniversario.
The MGX-21 was launched at Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in 2016, and immediately impressed journalist and riders around the world. The MGX-21 “Flying Fortress” was designed to compete with the heavy competition in the American bagger market. Built on a California 1400 platform, the bike’s 90-degree opposed twin produces 97 horsepower, and the engine is complemented with three riding modes, ABS and traction control, along with a stereo system.
The V9 Bobber and V9 Roamer will also be on display at Long Beach IMS with their 850cc air-cooled V90 powerplants that produce 55 horsepower and over 44 ft/lbs of torque. Like the cruiser lineup, each V9 model offers something unique for different rider attitudes.
The V9 Bobber caters to the urban rider who prefers blacked-out styling and small doses of chrome, whereas the V9 Roamer takes a more traditional approach with its classic colors and copious chrome accents.
LB IMS participants can also experience the V7 III, which builds on the legendary platform that debuted 50 years ago. Revamped with more powerful air-cooled 744cc, 90-degree V-twins, all three models – Stone, Special and Racer – now produce 52 horsepower and 44 ft/lbs of torque. The V7 IIIs now offer better handling due to a new chassis, a 3-level traction control system (including off), and two-channel ABS.
Staying current with the modern Moto Guzzi trend, each V7 III also caters to different rider personalities, from the subtle-styled Stone to the classically-styled Special to the café racer-styled Racer.
The Moto Guzzi staff will be on hand to educate participants on any element of these newer Moto Guzzi models.
Also on display will be our V7 II, California 1400, Eldorado, Audace, Griso, Norge and Stelvio models. Basically, a different type of ride for any type of Moto Guzzisti.
For participants, IMS offers free gear check, the popular Kid’s Zone presented by Allstate, a Stunt Show, the J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show, where you’re sure to see some Moto Guzzi customs, the Marketplace presented by Cycle Gear.
The LBC IMS show is one of seven across the United States.
