Is a V7 with the V9 engine. Any chance Piaggio will listen?

Hmmm interesting. I noticed a similar machine at Malibu Moto Guzzi rentals that they had modified see http://ridemalibu.com/bikes/v9-bobber/ but this still had the Bobber wheels which don't look quite right to me. Trouble is, these one offs would also be very expensive I imagine. Talking of which, do I need to seek medical help because the first chain drive bike I have fancied for more than 20 years is the new Royal Enfield Himalayan. Seems to me to be everything an honest bike should be. Simple, light, robust, comfortable(looks like it would be anyway) and go anywhere. I can just see me and my dear wife exploring the frozen wastes of Shropshire on that with a flask of tea and butties in the aluminium panniers. Makes a refreshing change from the poser 'adventure' machines that seem to be so common.

And it's probably light enough to actually take off road.

True. I would never consider taking a Stelvio or GS off road cos I am not that experienced at offroading (BSA b40 in 197?), they are too heavy and the inevitable repair bill would be enormous. In fact it could easily be more than the price of a new Himalaya at £4k if you factor in the cost of an ambulance to take me to A&E!

Came across their website on another forum and I was wistfully dreaming that maybe I could persuade she who must be obeyed to have a holiday in California and rent one of their Guzzis for a few days. (California dreaming on such a winters day ) she said it would be a caravan in Rhyl if I was lucky this year.....

I'm not sure if a caravan in Rhyl is better or worse than a day trip to Rhyl.
 
Though it was a long time ago when I last went there.

Oh sorry; thought you were boasting of a holiday rather than wistfully dreaming!

(Edit: That's about Malibu not Rhyll in case there's any confusion!)

Smaller version of Stelvio, for people with short legs. Like the Triumph 800 Explorer.
