2005 Moto Guzzi Breva V 750 IE


Introduced in 2002 by Italian manufacturer Piaggio under the brand Moto Guzzi, the Breva was apparently named after the breeze that blows across the company’s factory. The Breva entered its fourth year of production in 2005. The Breva was still produced as a standard motorcycle, with power coming from a four-stroke, V twin engine displacing at 744 cubic centimeters (thus a ""750"" suffix in some references). For the 2005 model year, Moto Guzzi introduced a second model, which is larger, heavier, and has a larger engine. It is called the Breva 1100, after its 1,064cc engine displacement. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for the original version, officially known as the Breva V 750 IE (Breva 750), was $7,990. The MSRP for the more powerful Breva 1100 model was $11,990.

With two intake valves on each of its two cylinders, the engine on the 2005 Moto Guzzi Breva is fueled by a Weber-Marelli carburetor. The bore and stroke and compression ratio are 80 x 74 millimeters (3.15 x 2.92 inches) and 9.6 to 1 on the Breva 750, and 92 x 80 mm (3.62 x 3.15 inches) and 9.8 to 1 on the Breva 1100. The engine is paired with a manual gearbox: five-speed on the Breva 750 and six-speed on the Breva 1100. In addition to the extra gear, the Breva 1100 got the larger gas tank: 6.3 gallons (24 liters), versus 4.5 gallons (17 liters) on the Breva 750.

For stopping power, each 2005 Moto Guzzi Breva uses an all-wheel disc brake system. The Breva 1100, in particular, uses a dual disc at the front instead of a single one, and it has a thicker disc brake at the back than that of the Breva 750. Moreover, the Breva 1100 has the thicker telescopic fork and lighter swing arm and shock absorber combination for its suspension. All 2005 Moto Guzzi Brevas ride on 17-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in tubeless tires.

Designed as a half-fairing bike, the 2005 Moto Guzzi Breva has a plastic shell covering its upper half, with a steel frame providing sturdiness. Dressing up the bike are front and rear fenders, exterior covers, fork guards, and a spoiler. A kick stand provides the driver with the ability to park the bike with ease. Each 2005 Moto Guzzi Breva comes in a black, red, or silver color finish.

Standard digital instrumentation on the 2005 Moto Guzzi Breva consists of a trip odometer, speedometer, and temperature and fuel-level warning lights, with a clock and tachometer added on the Breva 1100. Also included on the bike are tinted windshields as wind repellants, lockable compartments for storage, and halogen headlights and side mirrors for enhanced visibility.

For the most out of the 2005 Moto Guzzi Breva, the 1100 model is highly recommended. However, with the nameplate offering strong, sporty performance, you can’t go wrong with either model.
