Moto Guzzi V11 EV 1998

Moto Guzzi V11 EV 1998

The California EV is the natural development of the most successful Guzzi model of the last twenty years. Technically and style-wise, the California EV lives up to the highest expectations of all those who admire it.

The approach to style is unchanged, but enhanced by new colours. Braking system, suspension and many other components have been comprehensively re-engineered. If anything could be improved - in an already successful motorcycle - Guzzi has done it.

The end result is this marvellous Eurocruiser that is going to take the legendary California spirit well beyond the third millennium.
