Features

Features

  • The torque from the Moto Guzzi Big Block engine shines through. Its 89 ft·lbs (121 Nm) push you forward with relentless grunt at revs which leave others standing. But at the same time, a state-of-the-art electronic management with ride-by-wire throttle, selectable power maps and evolved traction control keep everything in check, letting you bask in the comfort of Cruise Control.
  • The MGX-21 is the most unconventional and technological 1400cc grand cruiser built at Mandello del Lario. Moto Guzzi is one of the greatest brands in the motorcycling world and in almost a century of history has produced motorcycles that are often ahead of their time.
  • The immediately obvious appearance of the MGX-21 is exceptional: the technical and stylistic features of the prototype, which had surprised everyone at its first presentation, have been kept totally intact. However, in the case of the MGX-21 a detail has been added: MGX-21 has become a large touring bike, with a pair of rigid side panniers that in no way distort the purity of design that the prototype boasted. The 58-litre carrying capacity and the presence of convenient, removable internal bags guarantee space and practicality for world travellers
  • GX-21 rises up as the Moto Guzzi technological banner. The new Italian cruiser boasts a complete electronics system package which, in accordance with the happy tradition Moto Guzzi adopted with the California 1400, is included as standard equipment. It is a riding accessories package that makes travelling safer and more comfortable. The refined electronic engine management includes the “full Ride-by-Wire” electronic accelerator that manages 3 different engine maps
  • Moto Guzzi has developed a new steering geometry that ensures balance and ease of riding, admirably reconciling two qualities: the comfort and load capacity of a custom with the dynamism and performance of a cruiser. Also contributing to achieving this goal is the brand new (and patented) manoeuvring assistance system that reduces the tendency (connected to the size of the front wheel) of steering to “close” in low speed and high steering angle manoeuvres, counterbalancing the weight of the steering, thanks to a system of regressive springs and particular kinematics.
