Moto Guzzi California 90th Anniversary Edition
The Moto Guzzi California is now available in a special two-tone anniversary edition celebrating 90 years of Guzzi heritage.
The ‘California 90 Anniversario’ sports a two-tone red white paint job, featuring retro decals and a genuine leather saddle.
It will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the Guzzi World Days event in Mandello del Lario on September 16-18 (www.gmg2011.motoguzzi.com).
As well as the large ‘Guzzi’ logos on the tank, the bike has lacquered ‘California 90’ decals on the side covers plus a numbered aluminium special edition plaque.
The steel mudguard and leg protectors fitted as standard are also finished in matching two-tone paint.

It also boasts the same all-encompassing accessories package as standard. This includes a large windscreen for maximum protection and waterproof hard panniers. Both the panniers and the engine are protected by chrome guards.
Fog-lights come fitted from the factory and a matching chrome luggage rack provides extra storage capacity.
Braking is taken care of by Brembo, with twin 320mm discs with 4-piston radial calipers at the front and a single 282mm disc at the rear.
