Moto Guzzi launches MGX-21 at Sturgis
Moto Guzzi has launched the new MGX-21 at the world famous Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota.
The first, long voyage of the most luxurious and spectacular Moto Guzzi cruiser ever designed, reached its first destination at the legendary South Dakota event, directly in the deepest heartland of America.
The MGX-21 puts Moto Guzzi into a new market segment, the large cruiser/bagger segment, with an offer that is completely new in design and chock full of cutting-edge technological content.
The brand's strategy has been structured on two fronts for 2016: on one side, the complete renewal of the range that already enjoys the success of the V7 and V9 families, and on the other, the entrance into new markets characterized by large volumes like the American market which is the most important for cruisers.
The Moto Guzzi MGX-21 is the most non-conventional, rich and technological bike of the 1400 cc cruisers built on the banks of Lake Como. It is the best representation yet that shows off Moto Guzzi's ability to make authentically unique motorcycles, strictly hand assembled as unique units since 1921.
The MGX-21 is an example of Guzzi's recent move towards using swathes of carbon-fibre on their bikes, with the MGX-21 containing the most of any bike yet. From the mud guards to the panniers, this bike uses an impressive amount of carbon-fibre.
The MGX-21 is powered by the same the 1400 cc 90° transversal V-twin engine found in the California family of bikes, with the engine's red rocker covers standing out from a distance.
From Mandello del Lario to the edge of the world, the journey is marked by the rhythm of the enormous big block piston strokes and ridden in complete safety with the precision of the chassis characterized by the large 21” front wheel.
Total control, on the other hand, is guaranteed by latest generation electronic rider aids including traction control, abs, and rider modes.
