New Moto Guzzi Scrambler 750 displayed

Moto Guzzi v7 scramblerMoto Guzzi displayed a V7 Scrambler along with a new California prototype, at the Piaggio international dealers meeting held in Monte Carlo at the end of January 2011.

The Scrambler is another cool looking and practical variation of the proven V7 platform.

The most notable new feature on this Scrambler is the high mounted dual exhaust from Arrow.  It has the traditional vented heat shield, but the shield is not overly large like on other brands of scramblers.

The tires fitted on the chrome spoked wheels of the new Guzzi Scrambler appear to be Pirelli Scorpion MT 90 S/T, which are intended for about 95% on-road use.  If these Pirelli tires come on the production model, then we feel this is a very good choice since this motorcycle is about the traditional scrambler style and riding comfort, not actual off-road adventures.

As with the new California, there is no word yet on when the Scrambler will be available at dealers.  Unlike the prototype California, the Scrambler does appear to be ready to go and relatively easy to produce since it apparently is based on the existing V7.
