2017 Moto Guzzi MGX-21 Flying Fortress

21,990.00

The Italians have their own interpretation of almost everything, in motorcycling they have chosen to express most of their passion for cruisers and baggers with the Moto Guzzi line of California models. In that uniquely Italian way, they have definitely gone the road less traveled with the Moto Guzzi MGX-21, the worlds first and so far only carbon fiber "Bagger" class bike. Truly the net result is like nothing ever before to haunt the interstates and back roads of the planet.

The MGX21 is motivated forward by the 1400cc motor common to the California line of bike but with red valve covers for a little taste of Italian flavor if the carbon bodywork did not give you enough!  The motor is a single throttle body, ride-by-wire fuel injected machine with true electronic cruise control. The fenders, bags, tank panels and a lot more are carbon fiber, not a wrap or carbon-look plastics but the real deal. Long has the joke been that carbon fiber is "Italian Chrome" but never has the statement carried such impact.

The chassis sits higher by almost two inches than the rest of the 1400cc line, this makes the bike feel a bit heavier than it's 1400cc siblings but in reality it weighs no more, what it does have a LOT more of though is cornering clearance! This is a full size bagger equipped with ABS, Traction Control and smartphone connectivity plus a bitchin' stereo, plenty of other baggers can claim these things, what they will never do is dominate corners and twisty roads at the pace or with the ease of the MGX, it flat handles.  Brakes are off the shelf Brembo superbike items, this is no porky HD where applying the brakes is a disappointing experience, when the pads bite into the 320mm Brembo disks the MGX stops or slows with an aggression that no bike of this size can match!

I seldom gush about cruiser style bikes but, this ladies and gentlemen is a rather different machine, it has a dominating presence that cannot be ignored, just as happy at full lean at a track day as it would be a Sturgis (where it got rave reviews btw) or Dayona Bike Week or the ROT rally.  Truly a motorcycle that must be ridden to be appreciated. I love how it feels like it looses 200 lbs by the time you hit a mere 10mph. If you are looking for something different and like standing apart from the crowd while riding a faster, smoother, cooler running, better braking and wicked handling machine then you truly should try this bike out! We have a demo for a reason!
