Moto Guzzi California EV V1100
The Moto Guzzi California is a cruiser motorcycle produced and sold by Moto Guzzi since 1971. It has a standard seating posture, footboards, a heel-and-toe shifting, and connected (discontinued for the new 1400 versions) Brembo brakes.
The first California was created in collaboration with the Los Angeles Police Department Traffic Division to replace the department’s Moto Guzzi V7s. It possessed a left-foot shifting, a bulletproof Lexan windshield, and a spring sidestand, as well as the obligatory siren, radio, additional police lights, and a standing quarter mile time of less than 16 seconds. Later, they were utilized by other police forces, notably the California Highway Patrol.
Moto Guzzi has practically continually produced a version of the California from 1971 to the present day, with the newest iteration being a 1400 cc variant. Moto Guzzi produced an 80th anniversary special edition California model designed by Italian furniture manufacturer Poltrona Frau in 2002.
In the 1990s, the motorcycle industry’s trend toward increasing generalized displacement led to the evolution of the engine from 948 cm3 to 1064 cm3 (cubic capacity that has reached today). The California 1100 and California 1100 ie (injection) were introduced in 1994, with upgrades and modifications to over 200 components in addition to the engine, while staying cosmetically very identical to the previous model. The 1064 engine was initially designed for the 1100 Sport, and it complemented the California chassis and characteristics admirably. Despite its modest power and torque at low rpm, this became and stayed the world’s fastest cruiser for a long period. The California I’s exceptional handling and road holding were enhanced on the III.
In 1997, the Tourer specialized to lengthy excursions was renamed California EV, and the entire range was equipped with electronic fuel injection. The California Special debuted in 1999, and was quickly followed by the California Special Sport.
