Another Guzzi that’s been around for a while but not currently available in Canada is the 1200 Norge. It’s the fully faired sport touring Guzzi that for 2011 will come with the 8 valve motor, that offers a claimed 102 hp (@7,000 rpm) with 77 ft-lb of torque (@ 5,500 rpm).
There’s also revised suspension, a new one-piece fairing, (with electronically adjustable screen), sportier ergonomics (thanks to a new saddle and lower bars) and a set of new side panniers.
Claimed dry weight is 257 Kg with a seat height of 810 mm (though there is an optional lower gel seat that reduces that by 30 mm). It also comes with ABS as standard.
Oh, and did we say that it will be available in Canada as of early to mid 2011?
