Pathetic justification?

How 'bout I like what I like & you do the same.

Check out "Travels with my Airhead" on that MOA page. No need for a "Retro-Airhead". The orginals are doing just fine.

Looks to me like they're up to their ol' tricks to move on the last of the old models.

The R100RS Last Edition Motorsport 1984, R100RSR, JPS (in Oz), Outback R100, Serie 500 R100RS, R100LT mono, R1100S boxercup replika etc, etc. They all represent times of dwindling sales of models being phased out.

They do a good job of presenting & marketing them though.

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.

It'll be an
"aircooled" R1200R with a special paint job.
