Moto Guzzi announced the revised 2009 Bellagio at the 2008 EICMA show in November. It's one cool-looking ride, with more bling than the subdued 2008 Bellagio.

Here's an edited version of the Moto Guzzi press release, including more photos and also the specifications on the 2009 Bellagio (below).

December 23, 2008 - The new Bellagio symbolizes the depth of the relationship between Moto Guzzi and its surrounding territory. This relationship is so strong that the immense beauty of the Lariano area affects both the ideas and creativity of man and in a sense leads him to create works of natural beauty in all his endeavors.

This empathy between the local environment and human inventiveness can be clearly seen in the new Moto Guzzi Bellagio that identifies a place known the world over for its beauty with the free spirit of those that revel in motor cycling.

Individuality and sheer style are embodied in a reserved, but sophisticated design that displays highly advanced innovative technological solutions balanced with a trendy image.

The CARC (Reactive Shaft Drive System) is a good example of this advanced technology. This system transforms the might of the new 940 cc engine into silky smooth acceleration making this machine Moto Guzzis most powerful cruiser bike.

Other indicators are seen in the presence of the progressive rear suspension system, in the Brembo floating caliper brake system that act on 320 mm discs, in the rear shock absorber and the fully adjustable forks.

These technical high quality solutions favor active safety, set a dynamic equilibrium and provide such riding pleasure that the Bellagio is the new point of reference in the category. The Bellagio has the temperament of a sportbike under the skin of a custom machine.

The spoked wheels, drag bar, rear-set saddle and forward positioned foot pegs are just a few examples of the details of a style that concentrates weight on the rear wheel giving the impression of a bike that is fixed to the ground, ready to take off at the drop of a hat.

The new 940 cc engine is more than capable of making this machine fly. While the engine is docile and vibration-free, it puts out huge power with immense torque from even very low revs. This power can be heard in the legendary engine note emitted from new twin silencers that sing a song called Bellagio.
