One look says this massive air-cooled, shaft-driven, transverse V-twin--surrounded by elegantly curved bodywork and a first-class chassis--could only come from Moto Guzzi. That's exactly what Guzzi boss Roberto Brovazzo wants us to think. "The best way to boost the marque," he says, "was with a new bike that maintains the Guzzi engine layout and characteristics." To do that, he recruited Italian Guzzi specialists Ghezzi & Brian (www.ghezzi-brian.com), and put co-founder Giuseppe Ghezzi in charge of the five-man MGS-01 design team. In case you're wondering, that's MGS-01 as in "Moto Guzzi Sport number one."
