Aquila Nera: this evocative moniker has been chosen for a new trim level for MY 2010 created for Moto Guzzi's custom models. The new variants will go on sale ahead of Eicma 2009 Milan Motorcycle Show, during which Moto Guzzi will be presenting even more additions to its product range.
With the Aquila Nera range, Moto Guzzi has, for the first time ever, applied the same unique and bold styling cues to a range of legendary models evocative of some of the most significant successes in the history of the brand.
Moto Guzzi California is unquestionably Moto Guzzi's most famous custom model and is one of the best known and best loved bikes in the world. Conceived in the early 1970s for the American market, it made for a name for itself in all five continents, earning universal acclaim for its bold image and impeccable road manners. It became famous for its legendary reliability - as testified by the fact that it was used as an official police vehicle by the NYPD (New York Police Department) for over a decade - and for its performance, which increased progressively through a continuous process of evolution of the engine that took it from 750 cc to 850, 1000 and eventually 1100 cc.
