Last year, the Piaggio Group unveiled the prototype of the successor to the legendary Moto Guzzi California. This year is the 1400 California reproduction point the bout its twin, through pictures “stolen”. First observation: contrary to rumors of cooling water, Calif. remains faithful to the good old fins. However, the future standard Euro4 – which should be implemented between 2016 and 2018 – will largely complicate the progress of manufacturing this type of engine.
Moto Guzzi, the fins are abundant, and technicians of the brand we explain that the breech of the future California will have a unique ventilation system for the brand. The large oil cooler on the photos this will also help cool the oil. Besides the completely new engine, transmission final drive will also be revamped. On the menu: to reduce strokes, and win in silence.
The future California will also have the ABS and a traction control system in series. Note that this innovation will also respond to the logic of platform, the future California 1400 will be available in standard, probably close to the pre-series version of this here, but also touring version, with windshield and saddlebags, and a nastier, covered with dark shades and lighter equipment. Otherwise, this advanced version is quite close to the prototype, with its scalloped tank to let the huge cylinders, aluminum rims with multiple ultra-thin sticks, and full digital counter (although basically unreadable).
We will remain cautious against the two lights embedded in the rear fender combined or separate rear cylinder. Now have to wait to see the final version of this – eagerly awaited – Moto Guzzi 1400 California, whose official presentation should no longer delay: if the timing of Moto Guzzi is respected, the new Calif. should be presented during September, with a market before the fall of 2012.
