Moto Guzzi Australia is offering an incentive to buy and personalise their V7 II and California models with some factory custom accessories thrown in for free and has announced the arrival of two new California models.

For a limited time, there’s $750 worth of free custom accessories for the V7 II and $1100 for the California 1400 Custom or Touring.

The V7 II Stone is priced at $14,000 ride away with lightweight alloy wheels and single colour matte paint schemes, the V7 II Special features spoked wheels, two-tone gloss colour scheme and a price tag of $14,500, while the V7 II Racer has low handlebars and a chromium fuel tank with a leather fastening strap and costs $17,000.

Moto Guzzi has introduced an online site where you can virtually create a customised V7 II and print out an image of the final customised bike plus a list of accessory part numbers to make ordering at a Moto Guzzi dealer easier.

The accessory kits turn the bike into a Scrambler, Dark Rider, Dapper or Legend.

Meanwhile, the California Custom costs $23,000 ride away with cruiser handlebars, black mirrors, minimalist colour scheme and a two-seater saddle, the California Touring adds a “Patrol” windscreen, chrome-plated headlights, 35 litre panniers, engine and pannier guard kit, touring saddle and a price tag of $26,000, and the California Touring SE adds 35-litre panniers, built-in passenger grab handle and back rest and a two tone colour scheme called Marrone Executive and costs $26,500.

Two more California variants all arrive in August, the Audace at $23,500 ride away and Eldorado at $24,000.

Audace is a dark model with blacked-out colour scheme, forward mounted foot pegs and rocker gear shift, flat style drag bars, bold round headlamp, carbon mudguards and shortened exhaust system.

Eldorado is a retro model with spoked wheels, white wall tyres, wrap-around mudguards, bull horn handlebars, chrome fuel tank accents, oversized saddle, passenger grab handles, covered shock absorbers, a gem-shaped rear light cluster and round turn signal indicators. It comes in black and red.
