Actor and motorcycle enthusiast Ewan McGregor introduced the all new Moto Guzzi Eldorado in a brand new video, which you can see below. McGregor talks about the Guzzi bikes he already owns and why likes his Italian motorcycles in addition to where he’d like to go on his next motorcycle trip.
The Moto Guzzi Eldorado is meant to compete with large cruisers on the market. The bike is based on the company’s California 1400 platform as they try to expand their offerings in the marketplace. You get a 96-hp V-Twin engine with 88 ft-lbs of torque. Since it weighs in at 693 pounds, that’s a good power-to-weight ratio.
Even with the classic design, it comes fully equipped with:
- Cruise control as a standard feature
- Full floorboards for riding comfort
- Huge wide seat
- LED running lights
- A smartphone ready system
The Eldorado’s price is $15,990, which is in line with other heavy cruisers on the market. It will be interesting to see how Moto Guzzi competes in this segment.
