Test Ride: Moto Guzzi 1200 Norge
For our first motorcycle road test in this series we wanted something a little unique. Moto Guzzi's new entry into the sport-touring category seemed like a perfect choice. European chic, V-twin grunt and large carrying capacity. Advertised as the "gran turismo" motorcycle for the 21st century by the factory- we set off to find out just what that really means.

The Moto Guzzi Norge is a 1200cc twin with a six speed and shaft drive. The Norge was introduced in 2006. Originally the factory claimed the bikes would be outfitted with a GPS as standard equipment. That idea didn't fly, but they do come with other neat bits, like hard luggage.
We hope you enjoy our video review of the Norge, feel free to click the Comments link below and post your opinion.
