Moto Guzzi 2001 California Jackal

Moto Guzzi 2001 California Jackal

Moto Guzzi is proud to announce a new addition to the California range: the California Jackal, a more "bare", essential version of the California Special and California EV, aimed primarily at a dynamic, young market, thanks also to its remarkably competitive price.

Nevertheless the Jackal has a character all of its own, personal and decisive, fitting the new "back to basics" concept aimed at rediscovering the fundamental pleasure of motorcycles and motorcycling in the purest sense.
