2016 Moto Guzzi MGX-21 Prototype

2016 Moto Guzzi MGX-21 Prototype

Plenty of sources have been spotlighting the new 2016 Moto Guzzi MGX-21 Prototype along with the minimalist retro design of the Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber series. The flavor that Guzzi gives to this MGX is unique by combining the essence of California joy and Italian taste. Based on the draft from the engineers and designers for this particular series – there are strong hopes that this bike can rule the world with its class. Let’s look at why there is a “21” badge on this vehicle, and the meaning behind it. The number stands for Experimental 21 which refers to the 21 inches front wheel size. Unlike the rest of the 2016 upcoming release breed – this series has massive displacement class. The exact measurement will be around 1,380cc with the 90 degrees of the V-Twin engine.

This engine can produce around 96 KHP, and some may say the engine is outside the normal boundaries of the Guzzi breed. Meanwhile, the torque can reach 120 Nm at 2,750 RPM. Based on its shape and size, the engine looks big and we predict that Harley fans will consider this bike an alternative. When we examine every detail of the components that this bike uses, we note that it will unfortunately no longer use carbon fiber, and has instead switched to enhanced plastic materials. The main reason for all the material changes come from the careful consideration of the brand. It is simply to reduce the cost of making the bike. However, no need to worry, because the quality and performance remain at its best high standards.

In case you dislike the 2016 Moto Guzzi MGX-21 prototype, you can try the Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer, with its compact size. Upon its release– there have been a lot of comments about this bike. Some think that the size makes the rider feel limited when making a maneuver or cornering. On the other hand, some people even bluntly add that this bike has an unnecessary tail that is only a wasted design. Regardless of the uniqueness that the bike has – all perspectives may be true because personal taste is the underlying benchmark of any viewpoint.

2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer Specs and Colors

2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer Specs and Colors

Strange but true, the new series of the 2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer edition will use the same engine as the Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber model – that is the 850cc displacement engine. This engine will have the 90 degrees with the V-Twin engine that the Bobber also has. For those of us who look for the differences between those series, we should attend the upcoming EICMA International Auto show in Milan. Standard specs cover some new features, such as adjustable traction control, standard ABS, and the USB connectivity port. According to an official statement we received from Moto Guzzi, both series include the stunning visuals and reliability of medium-size of custom bikes.

Extraordinary visuals will appear different for this upcoming Roamer series because– there is a glossy white paint on the fuel tank area. The exterior looks even sweeter with the two red lines that accentuate the fuel tank. The best way to describe the tires is beefed up to maintain its masculine power. Rumor has it that this Italian retro bike maker will add two more models for the EICMA event. Another exciting fact about the series is that they are in the Superbike class. For lovers of old-fashioned bike design, we recommend you choose the Bobber edition rather than the Roamer. There are no differences between the two in the exhaust placement or configuration. Both series have the dual exhaust placement on the left and right side.

Despite the detailed specs that the 2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer and the Bobber will offer – as usual, the automaker still provides extraordinary options for customization. These options cover all the specs and features that can be taken off and added based on our personal interests and preferences. What Guzzi has always offered for every breed is more than just a special package, it is the wide of options for any purchaser to describe their dream bike. Higher suspension can be added to personalize the comfort of riding this bike.

2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Top Speed and Price

Within just two days, the new 2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber series will have its debut performance, so we have gathered the full specs and details, including top speed and price. There are rumors that the top speed of this bike is as fast as 70 KPMH. However, let’s wait until the official word comes out. Since the Moto Guzzi will be celebrating its 95th anniversary – the promising news for the global market is that the new bike will be available soon. The prestigious international auto show event that will host the celebration is the EICMA 2015. So, we should be patient to wait only two more days when all the specs and details will be revealed for public consumption. The target market for the Moto Guzzi is fans of the medium-size custom cruiser.

This new series of the Moto Guzzi features the 850cc V-Twin engine with massive displacement and calibration. This bike has met the Euro 4 emission standards. Recent updates show that the horsepower can be as high as 230 HP, while the torque can be 45 lb-ft. However, all of this is based on the estimation calculations. For safety features, this vehicle will contain the brand new ABS standard, traction control, and USB port. Estimation of the total weight is around 410 pounds. The retro style that has always been inherent in every production of the Motto Guzzi breed continues in this upcoming series with the latest designs. Adding the 22-spokes wheel type, single front disc, and thin seat – and other features makes this bike break out of its conventional design look into a high-performing retro bike.

Riders who love the shortened fenders will be grateful because the new 2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber series will have that feature, as well as great exhaust capability. At this time, the only color option that Guzzi has for this new series is matte-black paint. Besides those specs, this bike has the distinctive characteristic of chrome and gloss paint in the tank area. The only negative comment is related to its body shape; some riders find that the engine block placement is uncomfortable for their legs.
