As dictated by the name, the Audace Carbon brings a carbon fiber front mudguard and gas tank ornaments along with an all-black theme. The “Sin City” theme gets complete with red cylinder head covers, front brake calipers, and branded rims.

“Moto Guzzi's desire to grow is perfectly summed up in the strong and uncompromising character of the new Audace,”
designer Miguel Galluzzi said at the model’s launch. “I believe that this bike, today, speaks louder than any words about the more modern soul and future of the brand from Mandello.”

“All you have to do is look at it and ride it, and all your questions are answered. Sitting astride this imposing bike, starting the powerful V-twin and riding down the road is all you need to understand what Moto Guzzi represents today. Audace is a perfect interpretation of the most genuine Moto Guzzi spirit,” he further explained.

The Moto Guzzi Audace Carbon also gets restyled bars and a secondary air system specially developed for the 90-degree V-twin to make it Euro 4 compliant along with a better catalytic convertor.

Speaking about the engine, the unit got its max torque bumped to 89 lb-ft (120 Nm), and it hits you as low as 3,000 rpm. The powertrain can be controlled in three riding modes as well - Veloce, Turismo and Pioggia (which means rain).

The Audace Carbon also can be had with the Moto Guzzi Multimedia Platform (MG-MP) which connects the bike to your smartphone, and you can view up to five parameters at a time. This includes revs, speed, power, torque, average fuel consumption, average speed and battery voltage along other things.
