Moto Guzzi has officially taken the wraps off their 2013 California 1400.
They’ve been teasing the bike for months, but at their Miami dealer’s convention yesterday, the Piaggio group finally set the new cruiser out in broad daylight, for all to see.
They didn’t take the opportunity to release much more technical information about the machine, though – it still appears the machine will be oil- and air-cooled, but rumors of a water-cooled version of the new 1400cc motor persist.
The new California wasn’t the only news at the dealer convention, though.
The Piaggio group also announced they’re going to be setting up what they’re calling the Advanced Design Center, in Pasadena, California.
The idea behind the center is to implement ” ‘intelligence globalization’ policy to create an international system of competences in the areas of product marketing and style,” according to company president Roberto Colaninno. In other words, they hope it’ll help them build better, more appealing bikes, that people want to buy.
