This is the new Moto Guzzi California 1400, an Italian “California Dreamin” machine, 2013 model, that will go into production this year. California 1400 was presented at Piaggio’s annual dealer meeting in Monte Carlo. For those who don’t know, Piaggio is one of the biggest motorcycle and scooter manufacturers in the world that owns several brands including Moto Guzzi.
Last year Piaggio showed a prototype of California 1400 and finally we can take a look at the production-ready model. The bike has a big V-twin engine with a maximum hoursepower of 110. Why California? The bike looks more like an American V-twin, though if you look closely, you can see the Italian design.
