evening all!

I am after some info on what seems to be a rare eagle!

I recently stumbled across the Moto Guzzi Quota 1100, which I really like the look of! What should I expect to pay and is it a future classic?

Any known issues?

Seems to have reasonable reviews from the press at the time, but not a lot of information around!

Thanks in advance, James

The real Issue with this bike is the seat height otherwise the engine/drive train as per other Guzzi of the same era They were ahead of the game well before the "Adventure" bike trend

Agreed, the seat is tall. I have a 1000 which is even taller, but it suits me. 

The 1100 has basically the EV engine but with a single-throttle-body injection. The suspension is good. If the height and riding position suits you it's a lovely bike. 
There is e german (with some english) forum on http://quotaforum.de/

Ciao,

The Quotas are really an oddball but interesting sideline in the Guzzi theme.

If they came up for sale more often I would probably have owned one at some point, and still own it if it was any good. As it is, I can't remember ever seeing one in the flesh.

Oddbike has a good article on its history here: https://www.odd-bike.com/2014/04/moto-guzzi-v-twin-off-roaders.html#more

That's an interesting site with some information I hadn't seen before. I must stay away from it before I waste more time.....

Not many about, but those I know who owned one all rave about it.
