2007 Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 | Motorcycle Preview

Gran Turismo for the 21st Century. 

Moto Guzzi is once more taking the plunge into the fully faired sport touring market with the new Norge 1200. Powered by Guzzi’s traditional transversely mounted air-cooled, two-valve, pushrod motor, the 1133cc Norge is a grand touring bike, with the expected accoutrements—a 6-speed transmission with shaft drive, 6-gallon fuel tank, electronically adjustable windshield, ABS and dual saddlebags. EFI and a catalytic converter keep the emissions civilized, while the optional, integrated TomTom GPS system ensures you get to your intended destination without any unintended, unguided side trips.
