Here's a photo of the new Moto Guzzi Breva 750
(below)! A new
era for Moto Guzzi, who are moving into a slightly different
market with this bike. I took this photo at the 2003 Cycle World
Motorcycle Show at the Dulles Expo Center in northern Virginia in March
of 2003. The bike looks really nice up close!

you a detailed article, I don't know the names of the parts I am going
to tell you about. For the past year my bike has been getting stuck in
2nd gear anywhere from 1 minute to 20 minutes I took it into my shop and
they adjusted the cable. The next time they adjusted the gear lever. By
the third time the owner had an opportunity to talk with other Moto
Guzzi dealers and they knew of the problem too.
In fact, so does Guzzi. Approximately 50% of the bikes made have 2 parts that were too big and
were jamming the gear drum (?). One's a fork and the other has to do
with sealing, although I don't think it is an elastomeric seal. If I had
a manual I would be more useful. Anyway, there is no recall or bulletin
but Guzzi's paying for it if you figure it out. Also, it's something
like a 12 hour job. The parts are in the back of the transmission and
there is no back plate to remove to get to them, so everything has to
A couple more things: The right exhaust pipe sits higher
than the left, which will melt your hard luggage. What I ended up
doing is taking the bracket off and elongating the mounting hole.
Also, be careful with closing the luggage, it doesn't automatically
align perfect and you end up gouging the clamp.
The idiot light for the gas comes on way too soon.
Fortunately, I have the trip-meter, so it's not that important.
The paint on the front fork assembly eventually absorbs dirt/grime.
I can't clean it. :(
I didn't say it before but I LOVE THIS BIKE!!
These problems are minor compared to how it rides!!
