2008 Moto Guzzi Breva 750

2008 Moto Guzzi Breva 750

The Breva is a comfortable “naked” whether you are alone or have a passenger. Like all Moto Guzzis it is rock solid and seems like a 21st century version of an idea by Carlo Guzzi: To build a motorbike for all, using technology to ensure comfort, ease of riding, reliability and a long life. All of this would of course have to lie beneath an attractive exterior with clean lines that form an unmistakeable style. The beauty of the Breva doesn’t hide but enhances its high-tech soul.

The jutting cylinder heads and the bulk of the Moto Guzzi patented shaft drive system only add to its beauty. They sit perfectly in the overall design where weight is distributed with dynamically efficient balance and underlines the sporting character of a bike that is all substance. The engine and frame confirm what the look suggests.

The latest generation 90 degree V twin is a modern engine with low down torque to spare but offers smooth delivery thanks to the fuel injection system. Uptake is fluid and emissions meet Euro 3 standards. The engine finds a perfect mate in the frame and specially designed suspension. The end result is superb performance along with impeccable handling and road holding. In simple terms this means great fun on the busier roads where the massive 45mm forks guarantee excellent cornering characteristics and, on exiting curves, the single adjustable shock absorber keeps you glued to the road. Braking is more than looked after by powerful twin floating 320 mm front discs and a 282mm disc at the rear. The new version of the Breva 1100 ABS increases safety margins on difficult or slippery surfaces. Both models share the same colour schemes - Racing Red, the legendary Guzzi Black or the new mother-of-pearl mica finish Other items worth mentioning for 2008 are the new electric controls that are shared with the Norge flagship model.
