A New Guzzi Water Cooled V-Twin?
Word 'round the campfire is Moto Guzzi has a totally new v twin in the works. The 90 degree twin is not another rehash of the marques forty year old design, it is completely now from the valves to the crank. In order to comply with the ever tightening emissions regulations, Guzzi has a compact water cooled mill on the drawing board. It also is supposed to have quite a bit more power than anything the company currently offers. It is rumored to have as much as one hundred forty horse power on tap. The new engine is said to have double overhead cams and four valves per. look for the new power plant to make it's debut in 2015. Myself, I would love to see it in a modern version of the Le Mans. A friend of mine had one back in the day and I always loved the lines of that bike. The prospect of this new engine is causing beads of perspiration to form on my forehead.
