2012 Moto Guzzi/Aprilia at AMiD show

Moto Guzzi is an iconic Italian bike maker with a glorious history and was reintroduced to South Africa in 2012 and has experienced a resurgence in popularity. In August, the Italian brandwill display its models at the 2013 Amid Motorcycle and Quad Lifestyle show.

According to Moto Guzzi: "The California 1400 Custom is an exciting new model that is a derivative of the capable California 1400 Touring that made a huge impression on the judges at the 2013 Pirelli Bike of the Year competition."


The panniers and screen of the Touring model have been replaced by a more minimalist approach that, according to Moto Guzzi, “highlights the clean lines and cruising potential of this gutsy V-twin-powered bike”.

Both versions of the California will be on the stand at the 2013 Amid  Motorcycle Expo. Moto Guzzi also has a 1200 V-twin used in three models – The Griso, Norge and Stelvio.

Moto Guzzi said: “The Griso is a unique naked bike that combines style with performance. The Norge is a capable tourer and the Stelvio is Moto Guzzi’s interpretation of a touring adventure bike.”

“If you’re looking for a bike with a smaller engine but even more presence and style, you should check out the three versions of the V7 – a 750cc naked bike that never fails to attract crowds.”

All three models will be on display at the 2013 Amid Motorcycle and Quad Lifestyle show..
