Designer Galluzzi Discusses the New Moto Guzzi California 1400 – Video

Share this Article

Moto Guzzi released a video featuring Marco Lambri, director of Piaggio Group style, and Miguel Galluzzi, vice-president of design discussing the new Moto Guzzi California 1400 and Piaggios’s planned Advanced Design Center in Pasadena, Calif.

Galluzzi says the model displayed at Piaggio Group Americas’ dealer convention in Miami last week is just one variation for the California. Galluzzi says Moto Guzzi will release a full dressed touring version this autumn, with the single-seat version to follow, as well as at least one more.

“I think we were able to create something that is still appealing to many, many customers in the world but with the Italian flavor that Moto Guzzi has.” says Galluzzi.

Speaking of the new Piaggio design center in Pasadena, Galluzzi says California is a hotspot for new trends which will help influence the design of future models.

“It’s a melting pot of cultures and it’s a melting pot of engineering and new thinking,” says Galluzzi.

We hate to pick on a man’s accent, especially when speaking a non-native language but in the future, Galluzzi might want to refrain from using the words “exploding” and “gas tank” in the same sentence.

    Thats a cool lookin’ bike! I wish there were some specs on it. The old California with the white striped seat is/was a nice looking bike too.

    Spiacenter di constatare che la nuova California non ha niente a che vedere con la tradizione Moto Guzzi. Ed in particolare la presentazione video data da due persone “Anonime” hanno dato l’impressione di due manager consumati sui libri contabili piuttosto che due motociclisti. La moto guzzi non è un numero, la moto guzzi è il numero uno della moto in europa e nel mondo.. Non la si può relegare ad una moto sterile e amorfa come aprilia.. Le Aprilia lasciatele fare a “tarallablence” o come si chiama ( Non mi interessa )Le guzzi sono moto degne di uno stilista di un’altro rango che tiene conto della passine pura tralasciando le strategie di marcheting.. Dopo tanta attesa mi vedo uscire un modelo che lascia il tempo che trova,, potevano scrivere Kawasaki o Honda era la stessa cosa. Peccato una vera delusione…
