California Special Sport- Aluminum
|High-Speed Touring in it's Most Brilliant Form.|
For 2002, Moto Guzzi presents another new model, the California Special Sport
Aluminum. Brilliant in its appearance and its equipment, this is a bike that
immediately shows a personality that defies the norm.
The most obvious new feature is the color, with a luminescent aluminum surface on the tank, sides and the alternator cover and cradles. The handlebars are also new, showing off a racy design.
The in-depth re-styling has involved numerous other details, such as the new and more aerodynamic sidecovers that now fit closer to the frame and allow the rider's feet to rest better on the ground. The front fender is more compact, reducing weight and contributing to the overall modern look. The ergonomic design of the new side kickstand makes parking quick and easy.
Even with all of these new features for 2002, Guzzi has stuck to the distinctive design that has made the California Special Sport a favorite among Guzzi fans all over the world. For those who love to travel in style but keep an eye on performance, the V-twin heart of the California Special Sport Aluminum beats hard, with a top speed of 200 km/h that brings those horizons closer, faster. The well-padded seat is roomy
enough for two, and super-duty rear shocks provide both comfort and handling. Shifting is easier, with shorter throw and an easy to locate neutral. The frame and rear forks have been re-designed to allow mounting of a larger tire.
The 2002 California Special Sport Aluminum is brilliant to see, and even more brilliant to ride.
