autoevolution

Segment: Custom/Cruiser

The MGX-21 is the most unconventional, rich and technological of the 1400 cc grand cruisers built at Mandello del Lario.

It is the latest distinguished representative of a line begun in 1921 when Moto Guzzi started to make unique hand built motorcycles as one-off collector's items. The design of the MGX-21 Flying Fortres leaves little room for indifference and, like all Moto Guzzi, begins by showing off the engineering of the big 90° transverse V-twin engine. Its two large cylinders seem literally to explode out of the petrol tank, helping to significantly lower and streamline the side view.

The red paint of the aluminium head covers emphasises the power this engine is capable of expressing, even in its aesthetics. With a low tail and raised front, thanks to the striking and distinctive design of the big fairing, the MGX-21 Flying Fortres takes on the appearance of a large, technological and luxurious motorcycle able to grind out the miles with a smooth ride.
