Though many of you may be alien to this fact, Piaggio owned motorcycle brand- Moto Guzzi ,has a pretty formidable line-up in India,and the numbers are only set to improve. Founded in 1921, the Legendary Italian brand has up until now remained relatively silent (or rather was forced to do so), among the bigger brands.But that is all set to change , with the launch of their Moto Guzzi V7 Stone ABS in the country.The bike was earlier imported for R&D purpose here , and was recently showcased at the 2015 Indian Bike Week .
Moto Gucci Line up in India include:
- Sports 8V
- California 1400
Moto Gucci Griso
The 2015 Moto Guzzi V7 Stone is a pretty good motorcycle , and comes equipped with a 744cc, air-cooled V-Twin that produces 50 BHP of power at 6200 RPM and 58 Nm of torque at 5000 RPM. Features like dual channel ABS and Traction control will be on offer. No doubt the motorcycle looks good but the power figures are something to worry about , and affordability will be the main make or break factor here.
With only two outlets located in Delhi and Pune , the manufacturer also suffers from limited visibility , especially from the bike crazy south Indian customers.Piaggio is heard to be working on ways to increase the number of dealerships in the country , we only hope this happens sooner than later.
