2011 Moto Guzzi Black Eagle | Quick Look

2011 Moto Guzzi Motorcycle

Fitting somewhere in-between the Royal Enfields and purely modern bikes, the 2011 Moto Guzzi California Black Eagle is an accessible step back in time.

The ergonomics and feel of the naked version of the venerable California Vintage is a cruiser like no other.With high floorboards for good ground clearance and a strong, torquey motor, the 1064cc Eagle is ready to fly gracefully through the canyons.

Modern conveniences such as fuel injection are tempered with a manual fast-idle handlebar control.While the suspension may not look high-tech, the forks and shocks are fully adjustable. Linked brakes are particularly effective.
