The Moto Guzzi California first appeared on the market in 1971 as a replacement model for the Moto Guzzi 850 GT and was manufactured until 2021. It featured a standard riding position with floorboards, a heel-and-toe shifter, and linked Brembo brakes.

Over its production period, the California model evolved into numerous versions with similar appearances and slightly different specifications, like the Moto Guzzi California Classic that debuted in 2009.

In 2009, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer launched the Moto Guzzi California Classic, a cruiser motorcycle fitted with the same engine technology as the Moto Guzzi Breva V 1100 model.

The engine technology of the Breva version made the bike lighter, featuring dual spark plugs, lighter connecting rods and pistons that reduced vibrations, and a Burgundy and Black color scheme. In addition, the bike came as simple as it gets without a windscreen or panniers.

It was fitted with standard features, such as a round headlight upfront, a wide, pulled-back handlebar, a two-piece dual seat, a luggage rack on the rear, a two-into-two exhaust system, an engine bar, and wire-spoke wheels.

A 1,064cc four-stroke air-cooled V-twin engine powered the 2008 Moto Guzzi California Classic, delivering an output power of 75 hp at 6,400 rpm and 88 Nm (65 lb-ft) torque at 5,000 rpm. The engine was fed by a fuel injection system, offering smooth and reliable power delivery.
