Moto Guzzi California 1400

By Kevin Ash - 09/11/2012

Moto Guzzi has released the first picture of the all-new California 1400.

The bike, powered by the biggest production V-twin to come out of Italy, offers an appealing modernised take on the traditional California look, characterised by huge tank cutouts to make room for the cylinders.

The bike is longer, lower and sleeker than before, and is likely to come with switchable engine maps, traction control, ABS and cruise control.

Full details with lots more pics here at on November 13.
