– 2005 Moto Guzzi California EV Touring

California EV Touring –The flagship of the Moto Guzzi touring line. Updated with our newest 90º V-Twin with hydraulic self-adjusting valves. Brembo Gold Series brakes. Integral braking system. Behr steel spoke tubeless rims. Distinctively decked out with a rider’s dream list of standard accessories, including an aerodynamic color-matched fairing and lowers, plus color-matched hard saddlebags, heated hand grips and a 12V accessory plug. Black and Chrome, Red and Black, Blue and Chrome or Dark Silver and Black.

Designed to satisfy

Most people set a limit to what they want. Some of us, however, when we reach that limit, want something more. This is the type of touring rider for whom Moto Guzzi has produced the California EV Touring.

This special version of the Guzzi touring flagship has everything you could possible want (and more!) to turn every journey into an unforgettable touring experience.

All the Guzzi chromosomes are there. The engine is the powerful and tireless Guzzi V twin with hydraulic tappets and catalyzed exhaust.

The design is timeless, with a relaxed riding position and the shiny chrome of a true cruiser. The massive braking system can stop you effortlessly. And the suspensions are what comfort is all about.
Yet the California EV Touring can still amaze with its extra features.

The California EV Touring embodies the same innovations as its twin sister, the California EV, but is even better equipped. The protective windshield is coloured to match the tank and bodywork, as are the stylish inserts on the elegant 40 litre panniers that come as standard. The refined blue colour scheme is also brand new.

And good looks can be functional too, as the new stainless steel pannier racks prove. These new racks will keep their good looks over the years while their new shape gives an improved riding position and aerodynamics.

Everything about the California EV Touring is designed to remove riding limits. Even the handlebar grips are heated to help you break through the cold barrier, for all year round long distance riding pleasure.

On board the California EV Touring you can even charge your mobile phone from the practical 12 V accessory socket.
