I recall a while back getting jazzed about the MotoGuzzi Cafe Classic. As soon as I found out the "carbs" were faux, the love affair was over. I'm just curious how this new Airhead will be handled.
The same... there's no way a modern streetbike that size will meet the emissions limits w/o fuel injection and a catalyst.
And your justification for falling out of love with that Guzzi is pathetic. Think about it... you could have had the looks of "retro" carbs, but with the advantages of fuel injection.
Sorta like marrying a pretty but penniless lady who likes to ride, and then
she inherits a big wad of money.
