Praise for the build quality was unexpected. Price competitive IMHO considering it is a niche product. Inexplicable to me how they complain about engine vibrations (thank you, Guzzi!!) and absence of quickshifter. 

When they make a touring version of this is when I stop sleeping at night.

Strange, this is the link from the "review" section but it does notopen when I click from the posted one. 

Best is to access directly from the Bike Review section using the drop down menu

Aka "bum stop", I think it's trying to ape the ones on the maxi scooters.

It will hinge to the side to reveal the 'modern' tool kit...... consisting of,
 
 1, screwdriver, which of course has a removable shaft with a posi on one side and a blade on the other.
 
 1, 10mm & 11mm spanner made of cheese, which will fit virtually nothing on the bike.
 
1, Fuse
 
All contained in a lovely pouch with the Guzzi logo on it.
 
2017 Ducati Supersport
1958 Wife
1965 BSA Lightning Clubman

It wisnae me, a big boy done it and ran away!

Maxi scooters? My Stelvio has a seat like that, I think you have been on the dark side too long Mike, you need to get back on a Guzzi again.
