2009 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 CUSTOM BIKE FOR EVERYONE
Fantastic to see, easy to drive, easy to recognise with its retro look that is always popular, the Nevada Classic 750 is the custom bike par excellence. The philosophy of relaxing riding is represented excellently in this model whose design and technology has been constantly improved over the years.
Details such as the LCD display show that this motorbike has come a long way since it first appeared on the market. One of its strong points is still how easy it is to ride, together with the extent of control at low speed, aided by the nearness of the saddle to the ground: just 760mm. There are no problems, therefore, for city riding, where the motorcyclist’s balance makes him more agile.
The equipment on the motorbike is top-level, with the Marzocchi fork at the front and the dual, adjustable shock absorber on the rear axle. The brake system is extremely safe, with its 320mm diameter front disk with a clamp with 4 opposed pistons, aided by a rear 260mm disk. The engine’s positive characteristics are emphasised thanks to the precision of the electronic injection that has been remapped to reduce emissions. The new catalyst converter, with its higher concentration of noble metals (from 70 to 140 g/ft3) also contributes to results.
The Nevada Classic 750 also has new upholstery, with new designs and new colours. Racing Red; Guzzi Black, Sport Yellow and Pearly Blue/White.
