whats the price? those look like alpina wheels I wonder if they are just knockoffs because alpina wheels are a fricken grand each. I love this bike, would make a great around town bike and get great gas mileage but its slow don't let the looks fool you its on par with a stock weighted down harley at best maybe get beat by a dresser if you don't hammer on it but if that doesn't matter and looks do that thing is hot.

A fine looking bike. I like it. Much nicer then say a retro Bonniville.

good god, $10-11K that a helluva lot to pay for a small step up from a scooter.

Where did you find that out? It still looks cool though.

google, one place posted 9k but I think that is for the v7 cafe racer not the clubman the clubman was rumored to be $10.9K which no one will buy for that much money. I have not found an actual set price tho I could be off but looking at the bits it can't be too cheap

Beautiful bike!! I love it much better than the Triumph but it must be really slow.
Not that that style needs mucho HP but that 750 is about 15 hp shy imo.

Nothing a full exhuast, ECU, airfilter, plugs and a new chain can't fix.

There are some really nice styling cues on this bike. Looks like the shocks are better than the Classic and Cafe models, too.

It's beautiful. Always liked the Guzzi's. Love the styling also. It would look good on the road or in a living room.

I could do without the #7 badging and the mini-windshield, and if they expect to stick with over 10k price tag its true, we're going to need some more meat out that engine.

It is VERY hard to extract any extra ponies out of a Guzzi smallblock. They have Heron heads which makes 'em pretty much un-'Tuneable'.

As for the bike in question? A plastic tank with fake 'Chrome' on it? Good luck with that. Given how vigorously it flaks and peels off other parts with the same treatment on Guzzis I'd think that it'll be a right royal PITA and will cost the factory a motza in warranty replacements and bad karma with customers.

I love the look of the bike, I would definetly lose the #7, I hope that they shell out the funds for a polished aluminum tank......but chances of that....

you shut your whore mouth ;)

those looks to be alpina wheels and believe me when I say ppl drop over 2k to get them on other guzzi's I think the wheels might be a big contributor to that lofty price tag
