In 2011, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer launched the Moto Guzzi California Aquila Nera, a bike part of the California series. The 2011 machine came with the same package as the previous model without any significant modifications.

The Moto Guzzi California was a cruiser motorcycle that started its journey in 1971 as a replacement model for the Moto Guzzi 850 GT and was built until 2021. It had a standard riding position with floorboards, a heel-and-toe shifter, and linked Brembo brakes.

Over its production period, the Moto Guzzi California was available in numerous versions with similar appearances and slightly different specifications, like the Moto Guzzi California Aquila Nera that debuted in 2010.

Visually, the 2011 Aquila Nera had installed standard fittings, such as a round headlight, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank, a one-piece dual seat with a pillion grab rail, valanced fenders, side-mounted rear shocks, a two-into-two exhaust system, and wire-spoke wheels.

Suspension-wise, the motorcycle packed a 45 mm Marzocchi adjustable telescopic fork on the front and twin side-mounted, adjustable shock absorbers on the rear, offering excellent handling capabilities.

As for the power figures, the 2011 Moto Guzzi California Aquila Nera took its muscles from a 1,064cc four-stroke air-cooled V-twin powerplant that delivered an output power of 74 hp with maximum strength at 6,400 rpm and 88 Nm (65 lb-ft) torque at 5,000 rpm.
