History will look kindly on these bikes
3. 2004 Moto Guzzi MGS-01
When you think of an Italian V-Twin with Ohlins suspension, forged pistons, forged wheels, dry clutch and gorgeous styling, it’s usually a Ducati that comes to mind. But don’t overlook the Moto Guzzi MGS-01. Only a handful of these machines were ever made, but the lucky few who own one have something special in their possession.
Powered by a 1225cc Twin, the sporty Guzzi has eight valves, Marelli fuel injection, forged pistons, and produced somewhere in the ballpark of 120 horses and 83 ft-lbs. of torque. All delivered to the rear wheel via shaft drive, in typical Guzzi fashion.
The MGS-01 was an impressive performer, capable of holding its own against other sporty Twins of its time. It surprisingly excelled in the twisty stuff thanks to its sharp 23.5-degree rake, 95mm trail and 55.9-inch wheelbase. Finding one today won’t be easy or cheap, but if the opportunity comes to get a hold of one, don’t pass it up.
