Crystal ball 2012: Moto Guzzi

Guzzi's V7 Scrambler and California were unveiled at a Piaggio dealers meeting

IT'S not often that we can be 100 percent certain of the new models coming from any manufacturer this early in the year before they go on sale, but Moto Guzzi has already released pictures of its two main machines for 2012.

One is a straightforward scrambler-style retro based on the firm's V7 and simply called the Scrambler. Rivalling Triumph's similarly-named machine, it should be relatively cheap and stylish, if not breaking any new ground when it comes to performance or handling.

The second is more radical – a big cruiser to rival Harley Davidson. Although it will carry the California name, its 1400cc, water-cooled engine is a radical departure for Moto Guzzi.
