The '13s feel different, but they're not really any more powerful.

Steel fuel tanks started in '12. So, the '09-'11s will have plastic fuel tanks, some of which have had problems with swelling. ...

Guzzi's website shows a weight gain from 395-lbs to 417-lbs on the listed weights.

Unless things have changed for 2016 models, Guzzi's have the speedo drive on the transmission. It's been that way for the past 48 years.

The tone rings only report wheel speed info to the ABS.
