Segment: Custom/Cruiser

The House of Mandello del Lario has designed and launched one of the most bold and aggressive designs up to date, in the embodiment of the 2015 MY Moto Guzzi Audace.

It is based on the California 1400 platform, but that's where the similarities with all other models from Moto Guzzi end, this machine focusing on aggressive and head-turning visuals, that are also translated in its riding position and power delivery.

Unlike the other new model from Guzzi, the Eldorado, the Audace has relinquished all traces of chrome plating, and has all of its parts in a matte black, which make it one of the boldest power cruisers with an European pedigree.
