1200 Corsa OUT NOW

The Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport ‘Corsa’ Special Edition has just arrived from Italy. Taking your standard Moto Guzzi 1200 Sport, and dressing it up in a special red white paint scheme with gold trim, the 1200 Sport ‘Corsa’ is an attractive take on a classic motorcycle line.

Sure the special edition model is just some fresh paint on the v-twin standard, but Moto Guzzi isn’t adding on any additional cost for the machine, which just makes this simply a very attractive option in the 1200 Sport line-up. Tastefully done, it shows that a little extra styling can go a long way.

The 1200 Sport is powered by the same smooth 1151cc V90 8v engine found in the new Stelvio NTX Norge GT, delivering 102bhp @ 7,000rpm and 77 lbs•ft of torque. Handling the bumps in the road are Marzocchi forks adjustable for pre-load, compression, and rebound damping along with a similarly multi adjustable rear shock. Marchesini 3-spoke wheels hold the tires on, while braking is taken care of by Brembo, with twin 320mm discs with 4-piston radial calipers at the front and a single 298mm disc at the rear.
