An engine design that originated in the early post-war years, Moto Guzzi's venerable 90-degree V-twin is still around today powering the company's latest generation of naked/custom and adventure bikes, tourers and cruisers. Guzzi's take on the 'naked' first appeared actually in the mid 1970s in the form of the 850 T3 California. The styling was unashamedly American inspired: fat 'buddy' seat, cow-horn 'bars, king-size mudguards, foot boards, panniers, screen and lashings of chrome, all of which conspired to make it look like Italy's answer to the Harley-Davidson Electra Glide. The design has changed in detail over the years, the engine growing to 1,064cc and the cycle parts being upgraded with the latest kit, but the concept remains unchanged.

94 horsepower at 8,200rpm, 65-ft-ib of torque at 5,800rpm with Weber Marelli Digital Electronic fuel injection power a chrome moly backbone frame with the engine as a stressed member. 5-speed, shaft drive, WP suspension and Brembo brakes add familiarity to the package; it's the styling that makes an unfamiliar statement from white faced clocks to unusual bodywork. Penned by Luciano Marabese of Marabese Design, outside of Milan, Italy, a studio that has worked with Aprilia, Gilera, Morini, Piaggio, Triumph and Yamaha among others, it is striking in its modernity and functionality, and it cannot be mistaken for any other brand or model.

This Centauro GT is in truly excellent condition. Stock apart from its exhaust and fly-screen and clip-on handlebars, it has been recently serviced and is ready to ride.
