    Outstanding work Todd, like many others I have had a Facebook bypass so continually monitor this post to see what you have in the pipeline.
    A big thanks for your commitment to the Guzzi community.

    The reviews have been awesome. I really hope I can see and hear the bike one day in person. Think you'll ever get a video up on it? I know the sound will never capture the complexity of your exhaust work, but it'd sure be nice to see the bike in action.

    I've been literally trying to do video for months. Nothing was cooperating on the timeline with my video guys, then the weather, then the fires, now the rains... One day is the answer, yes.

    Hey Todd!
    Now that you have had a chance to put some miles on the 01 I am curious to know what RPM & MPH range it likes.
    Where is the sweet spot?

    Most all Guzzi's I've had seemed really comfortable in the 5000 rpm range altho the Griso seems to like it best just under 6000.
    Seems like 80 mph is the groove where they all seem to handle, ride, sound the best.

    I had a chance to see, hear and sit on this bike this weekend.
    The photos don't do it justice, and there is no way that they can covey how light the bike is.

    I think one sees this bike and presumes that it approaches the question of speed through raw horsepower. That is not just the only case. Yes, this bike delivers enormous rear wheel horsepower, but it's approach to speed and performance is rather based on a high degree of sophistication: the sophisticated engineering of the platform and the sophisticated lightweight design of the entire package. The bike is stunningly simple, and it is the combination of this and the level of design that got the bike to this point that makes it so outstanding.

    Best to everyone for the Holiday week.

    As an early gift, below is a rendering of our up and coming GTM-02 1380 LeMans. It can be ordered normally aspirated or blown, all the way down to a stock Griso 1100 motor.

    Please don’t steal the image, instead appreciate a link here.

    Happy Holidays!

    Assume you mean MGS-01 (Moto Guzzi Sport). The exhaust will stay low, and likely exit as shown below. The round under the seat is the brake light. The 8V engine doesn’t like long exhaust systems on the dyno once they are free-flowing.

    The translucent red wine frame is beautiful. I have a car that color. It's a '97 Subaru SVX and they call the color Bordeaux.
