While Moto Guzzi introduced its Nevada motorcycle to the United Kingdom in the 1990s, it wasn’t until 2004 this bike became available in the United States. Not too many changes were made to the Nevada in the intervening years, though in 2002, the Classic 750 was given new front forks and a different headlight. The big changes, however, took place the 2007 model, when Moto Guzzi estimated it changed almost 90 percent of the Nevada Classic 750. The Italian manufacturer redesigned or replaced 383 of the motorcycle’s 441 parts, giving the cruiser a totally new look. Perhaps the biggest change was in the Classic 750’s fuel management system. Moto Guzzi replaced the Dell’Orto carburetors with a Weber-Marelli fuel injection system. Other replacements included side panels, rear mudguard, tail light and shock absorber covers. A lower seat made it easier for drivers to get through tight spaces at low speeds.
The Classic 750 bears resemblance to other Moto Guzzis, mainly the look of the Classic California and the engine used in the Breva. Yet, this motorcycle retains its own distinctive look, feel and ride. Riders give the Nevada Classic 750 high ratings for performance, quality and reliability, ride and comfort, and value. The Nevada Classic 750 is as comfortable driving in rush-hour traffic as it is on the highway, where it can reach speeds of up to 110 mph. Riders say the cruiser easy to ride and handle. The Classic 750 would make a good entry motorcycle. It does a quarter mile in 16.1 seconds from a standing start. The 2008 Nevada Classic 750 comes in red and black.
