Moto Guzzi shows off new MGX-21 Prototype cruiser bike on the floors of EICMA 2014 in Milan, Italy.
Meet the new Moto Guzzi MGX-21 Prototype revealed just hours ago at the on-going annual EICMA 2014 bikes show in Milan, Italy. Essentially, this prototype is a reworked Moto Guzzi California 1400 underneath its sleek, minimalist, and predominantly black exterior.
Clearly, the designers at Moto Guzzi were out to create a bike that could rival against notable American brands such as Harley-Davidson, Victory, and Indian. Much of the MGX-21’s exterior is a melting pot of carbon fibre, matte black paint, and several subtle red highlights.
What looks mighty impressive are the MGX-21’s carbon fibre disc wheel measuring 21 inches up front, followed by the Victory-esque sweeping tail design. What is unmistakably ‘Guzzi’ here is the brand’s signature longitudinally-mounted 90-degree V-twin engine placement.
Has Europe’s oldest motorcycle maker got what it takes to take on Harley-Davidson, Vicitory, and Indian? The MGX-21 seems as if it wants to.
