The 2015 MY Moto Guzzi Norge GT 8V is the flagship touring machine from Mandello del Lario. Even though it can compete with almost all full-sized touring machines available on the market, in terms of comfort and equipment, it has the added bonus of an Italian, pure-bread racing pedigree that is more than obvious in its overall design, which reminds one of a supersport rather that a touring machine. Even so, it comes standard with all the features one would normally expect from a trans-continental machine, such as side panniers, an electrically adjustable windshield, a two-up seat, a generous, 23 liter fuel tank, and technologies such as Continental ABS, an on-board computer, heated grips and a satellite navigator fixtiure.
