2008 Moto Guzzi California Vintage | ShowCase

In tribute to the groundbreaking 1971 Moto Guzzi Los Angeles Police Department bike—the Italian factory is offering the new California Vintage. Maintaining its law enforcement heritage and image, the California Vintage is a turnkey tourer (crash bars, panniers, and triple headlights are standard) in black-and-white.

Unlike the original 757cc V7, the California Vintage is propelled by a current Moto Guzzi powerplant—a 1064cc, air-cooled transverse V-twin with two pushrod-actuated valves per cylinder. Fuel injection provides the air/fuel mixture, while a five-gallon fuel tank ensures long hauls between stops.
