Bike sure does have some presence. I like it as it is beautiful.
It does seem to have some of that....much to the contrary of my earlier comments in the thread after seeing pictures. I think the cylinders in the way of highway pegs might dissuade some tourers a bit, but maybe that's cancelled out in the minds of those riders by the fairly neutral foot placement. It seems like a very well thought-out and way-cool bike. Hope Guzzi sells a bunch.
