All new - Moto Guzzi MGX-21 News
 

The MGX-21 is the most unconventional, rich and technological of the 1400 cc grand cruisers built at Mandello del Lario. It is the latest distinguished representative of a line begun in 1921 when Moto Guzzi started to make unique hand built motorcycles as one-off collector's items. Moto Guzzi is one of the greatest brands in the motorcycling world and in almost a century of history has produced bikes that are often ahead of their time, whose innovations are subsequently adopted by everyone.

Presented last year as a prototype of a futuristic, seductive and powerful bagger, the current version of the MGX-21 is now very close to the final one to be delivered to dealers next year.

The design of the MGX-21 leaves little room for indifference and, like all Moto Guzzis, begins by showing off the engineering of the big 90° transverse V-twin engine. Its two large cylinders seem literally to explode out of the petrol tank, helping to significantly lower and streamline the side view. The red paint of the aluminium head covers emphasises the power this engine is capable of expressing, even in its aesthetics. With a low tail and raised front, thanks to the striking and distinctive design of the big fairing, the MGX-21 takes on the appearance of a large, technological and luxurious motorcycle able to grind out the miles with a smooth ride. It's certainly no wallflower, but rather seeks to attract people's attention with its original shape and the mysterious nocturnal appearance created by the PADC (Piaggio Advanced Design Center) designers in California. To celebrate such a personal, powerful and brave style, Moto Guzzi gave the new MGX-21 the evocative soubriquet of Flying Fortress. The Moto Guzzi bagger keeps the 21" alloy front wheel, now protected by carbon covers with small openings where the spokes intersect with the channel. This design choice also brings the technical advantage of increased stability and ease of handling due to the passage of air from one side of the hub to the other while the bike is in motion.

Behind the cowl a sophisticated instrument panel has a monochrome dot matrix display and real entertainment system. The latter includes a stereo and the intercom system. The Bluetooth module ensures full interaction with external devices such as a smartphone. The standard equipment is complemented by a sophisticated electronic engine management system, which includes the Ride-by-Wire multimap, in addition to two-channel ABS, traction control set to three different levels of operation (and excludable) and cruise control. The new Moto Guzzi also stands out for meticulous and obsessive attention to detail. The spectacular optical units use LED technology, while the electrical controls on the handlebars are made of metal. While respecting the solid century-old tradition, the MGX-21 reaches out to the future, employing materials typically used in the most advanced sports motorcycles. Indeed, many parts are made in high quality carbon, such as the front mudguard, the tank panels, the motorcycle case covers, the engine push rod and the front wheel covers.
