Moto Guzzi V12 X Concept

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Moto Guzzi’s second concept from EICMA is the Moto Guzzi V12 X (also check out the Moto Guzzi V12 LM & Moto Guzzi V12 Strada). Also built around the Mandello 1,200cc v-twin motor, the X is shorter and reminds a lot of the aptly named Aprilia Mana X with its banana seat and snubbed nose. Photos and more after the jump.

Not quite a streetfighter, not quite a supermoto, the Moto Guzzi V12 X manages to make a big motor look small and maneuverable. This is probably because the concept bike is almost all engine and stripped down to only the bare essentials cosmetically. Still, the V12 X is very tastefully done.

Press Release:







This is a “one-of-a-kind” motorcycle, true to the character of the Guzzi twin-cylinder. The focus is on riding fun, and is enhanced by its aggressive design. The V12 X is the motorcycle for aggressive riders that begs to be pushed to the limit. Born to show off and fun to ride, this motorcycle is in a category of its own. Its spirited personality is highlighted by the aggressive riding position, a sports-like chassis set-up, longer suspension travel and a rev happy engine.
