2007 Moto Guzzi California

2007 Moto Guzzi California Vintage


Debuting in 1971, the Moto Guzzi California from Italian automaker Piaggio subsidiary Moto Guzzi has always stayed true to its name. Historically, the California is a touring motorcycle mechanically and stylistically inspired by United States cruiser bikes. The 2007 version comes as a “Vintage"" model, with enough 21-century technology while sticking to its retro feel. The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the ‘07 California is $14,990.

Powering the 2007 Moto Guzzi California Vintage is a four-stroke V-twin (two-cylinder) engine that produces 72.4 horsepower at 6,400 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 69.3 pound-feet of torque at 5,000 RPM. With a displacement of 1,064 cubic centimeters, the engine on the ‘07 California has two intake valves on each cylinder, a compression ratio of 9.8 to 1, and a bore and stroke of 3.62 by 3.15 inches. The engine is paired with a five-speed manual transmission.

Each 2007 Moto Guzzi California has an electric starter for a very convenience engine ignition. For enhanced braking over the regular front-disc-brake rear-drum-brake layout, the bike has all-wheel Brembo® Oro disc brakes. A Marzocchi telescopic-fork front suspension and twin-sided swing arm rear suspension promote a smooth ride when cruising.

The 2007 Moto Guzzi California comes as a black bike: with halogen lights, fog lights and rearview mirrors for improved visibility when driving. Digital instrumentation consists of a tachometer, trip odometer, speedometer and temperature warning indicator. Storage includes a rear rack, bag liner and space underneath the seat. There are guards placed on the drive shaft, engine and saddle bag. A 12-volt power outlet is available for charging a mobile device, such as a smartphone.

With a dry weight of 580 lbs., the 2007 Moto Guzzi California is 93.7 inches in length, 32.1 inches in width and 54.7 inches in height, with a wheelbase of 61.4 inches. The two-piece seat--large enough for the driver and a passenger to sit on--is set at 30.7 inches on the bike. The ground clearance is measured at 7.5 inches, and fuel capacity peaks at 5 gallons with a one-gallon reserve.
