Moto Guzzi MGX21 Concept unveiled
Reworked California 1400 revealed at EICMA
MOTO Guzzi has unveiled its MGX-21 concept at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan.
Essentially a customised Moto Guzzi California 1400, the prototype is adorned with large amounts of carbon fibre, matte black paint, exhaust wrap and red highlights on the brake calipers, front fender and 1380cc V-twin engine.
It’s unclear if Guzzi has plans to ever put the bike into production or whether the project is merely a styling exercise.
Here’s what the Italian firm said about the concept:
‘MGX-21 is the emblem, the most extreme summary of this fascinating and courageous project. It is a surprising idea that opens up a new path to touring according the Moto Guzzi. MGX-21 takes and combines elements, seeks out the influence of different cultures but drafts each foundation to lead everything back to the riding experience which belongs to every Moto Guzzi.
‘Only those who have very deep roots, those who do not suffer from an identity crisis can afford such an extreme style. Moto Guzzi can dare, can look forward, even far into the future, without uncertainty, without the fear of venturing beyond the frontier. Here is the spectacular 21” front wheel, extraordinarily evocative, here is a new and comfortable environment for the rider, but above all, here is the legendary rideability of a Moto Guzzi.
‘And so the MGX-21 project is born with an unmistakable goal: to be a Moto Guzzi “inside,” to always feel the road running beneath its wheels, to always feel the rhythm of the large 1400cc Twin-cylinder between the rider’s legs which, as has been the case since 1921, is hand built on the shores of the Lario and ready for any frontier in the world.’
