2008 Moto Guzzi Nevada Classic 750

The environmentally-friendly custom bike

What could be better than the classic Nevada 750 equipped with electronic fuel injection?
Only Moto Guzzi could surpass itself in this way, injecting a new lease of life into a motorcycle that time alone cannot stop.

The Nevada Classic 750 i.e. is an absolutely modern motorcycle. 87% of the bike, some 383 parts out of 441, have either been redesigned or replaced and the look is totally new, even if the bike maintains all the fascination of a thoroughbred custom. Side panels, shock absorber covers, seat, rear mudguard, tail light and even the rider footrests have been restyled. The resulting look is eye-catching and contemporary but still leaves that unique Nevada spirit shine on through. The brand new, ultra-modern instrumentation now includes an LCD display. The handlebars and grips have been redesigned, as has the clutch lever, which affords smoother, easier action. Riding ergonomics have been improved to give better control and easier handling in rush-hour traffic. The new profile seat has a height of only 760 mm, making for beautifully easy low speed manoeuvring in tight spaces.

The engine is Guzzi’s magnificent 744 cc 90° V-Twin of course, but electronic fuel injection has been added to improve performance in all situations and a Lambda probe catalyser minimises emissions too. Likewise, the beautifully balanced frame is still one of the Nevada’s strong points, but cornering and steering precision have been improved by a new Marzocchi 40 mm fork.

Rider and passenger comfort is guaranteed by soft suspensions and the two rear shock absorbers are adjustable to suit load. Brakes are those of a sportster, with a mighty 320 mm front disc operated by a four-pot calliper and a 260 mm disc at the rear. The Nevada Classic 750 i.e. is also backed up by an extensive range of dedicated accessories to permit individual customisation. The Nevada Classic 750 i.e. comes in a choice of two colour schemes: Nero Guzzi (black), Rosso del Lario (red).
