2008 Moto Guzzi 1200 Breva Sport Blends Naked Style, Cruising Comfort
This sporty edition of the "Italian Eagle" attacks the asphalt mile after mile – with Italian style, more power and a smoother-than-ever ride.
The new 2008 Moto Guzzi 1200 Breva Sport is the most aggressive sibling in the Breva family of Naked bikes, which includes the Breva 1100 and Breva 750. With added horsepower and more torque available at even lower revs, lowered gearing and a host of other performance enhancements, the Sport is also the ideal Moto Guzzi for the rider who wants to log cruising miles in comfort while having an arsenal of performance features on tap. And, while the tech specs point to the Breva Sport’s penchant for setting a pulse-quickening pace, this V-twin Naked also sends a serious message while standing still, thanks to classic racing graphics, a racing exhaust and standard equipment like a tubular, low-rise handlebar, titanium-treated forks, a café-racer style fairing, aluminum foot pegs, sports seat, sport tires and powerful wave front disc brakes. A full Racing Kit for optimum performance is an added option.
When Carlo Guzzi engineered the first Moto Guzzi over 85 years ago, he wanted to shatter the notion that motorcycles should sacrifice function, reliability and comfort for pure speed. His philosophy that the perfect motorcycle offers a balance of all these riding qualities has inspired every Moto Guzzi designer and engineer since, and the 1200 Breva Sport again celebrates the company founder’s unique point of view.
