    We trust you -- even though you were not entirely right about the V11 :giggle: -- but the CARK comment was a joke, following the furst -- about the eigth ;) -- in this thread. :rofl:

    Best wishes from the top of Virginia, where Italians are always welcome, especially Guzzisti such as yourself ...

    Constantly having to remind myself to use American spellings when searching for parts. Using English often limits one’s searches e.g. Centre Stand as opposed to Center Stand.

    Such is life.

    :D

    AArghhh! Now you are provoking me!!! :D

    The official Moto Guzzi PRODUCTION designations are:

    1 - "Moto Guzzi V11 Sport" in various models like Ballabio, Le Mans, Coppa Italia,
    Scura and Rosso Mandello.

    2 - "Moto Guzzi California" in various models like Stone, Titanium, Jackal, EV etc.

    MG made some variations on the name for export reasons, BUT if you talk to an Italian Guzzi fan about the V11, he thinks of the Sport, not of the California.

    Peace.

    Apropos spelling. It would be very difficult to beat Moto Guzzi for their English V7 III Manual.

    They say: “The instructions in this manual have been prepared to offer mainly a simple and clear guide to its use”

    Hmm...? Still guessing what they mean on Page 59.

    “Justering af greb til forbremse.”

    Even more strange is the manual name is described as “Aprilia”.

    :D

    Many EV's had V11 on the side cover.

    "Justering at greb til forbremse" You don't have to guess if you know the Danish (!) language.

    Yes, but they are export models. Wonder why MG made such a mess with names in foreign countries... :wondering:
