Design

The new Moto Guzzi 2020 MGX-21 Custom Motorcycle features an attractive design that that leaves a little room for insignificance and, like all Moto Guzzi’s, begins by showing of engineering of the big 90’s transverse V-twin engine with two large cylinders that seem to explode out of the petrol tank that helps in making a side view considerably lower and streamlined. The red paint of the aluminum head covers shows the power that comes out of the engine. Slightly soft in the back and raised at the front section, the new Moto Guzzi 2020 MGX-21 Custom Motorcycle gives the sense of comfortable riding pleasure. It attracts people’s attention due to its original shape and the mysterious nocturnal look created by the PADC (Piaggio Advanced Design Center) engineers in California who conceived its appearance. Particular attention was offered to the study and definition of the “Batwing” design; the sizeable top fairing makes it an essential contribution to the motorcycle’s futuristic appearance.

The motorcycle is the perfect mixture of form and function: the careful fluid dynamics analysis, including CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations and the various wind tunnel tests, have led to optimum air protection capacity. The shapes at the rear also stem from the same studies, and they improve carbon profiles and the new dual series of built-in LED lights.

The new Moto Guzzi 2020 MGX-21 Custom Motorcycle comes with a powerful and brave style Flying Fortress that stands out from meticulous and obsessive attention to detail. The spectacular headlight cluster has LED DRL lighting technology, while electric controls on the handlebar are finished with metal shells.

The accessories package makes traveling safer and more comfortable. At the same time, the advanced electronic engine management consists of the full Ride-by-Wire electronic accelerator that manages three different engine maps, easily selected from the handlebar controls to adapt power and torque distribution under all situations.

The new Veloce exploits all the available power and torque to improve performance and response with every throttle twist. It is perfect for a dynamic ride and getting the most out of chassis features for skilled riders. The Turismo offers smoother power distribution for smoother riding during long rides, while Pioggia is suited for low grip conditions that decrease the torque and engine brake management.

The cruise control, including multiply features, makes its debut on the MGX-21 that allows the rider to preserve the selected speed without touching the throttle or fluctuating the cruising speed using a toggle button on the left-hand handlebar control. The speed can be temporarily enhanced by twisting the throttle; once released, the motorcycle returns to its cruising speed. The system automatically disengages, not only by braking or by pressing the selector switch but also by twisting the throttle in its opposite way. Once disengaged, the rider can return the motorcycle to the last cruising speed set simply by pressing the resume button.

The top fairing hides a highly sophisticated instrument cluster with a monochromatic dot matrix display with a wealth of information, including the fuel level and engaged gear indicator, average, clock, and instantaneous fuel consumption and air temperature indicator.

Engine Features

It is the largest V-Twin ever produced in Europe that can provide more than 120Nm of torque with ease and accuracy from very low revs and has earned EU4 certification, and has an exhaust unit with horizontal log terminals. It is an ultra-modern powerplant that features four-valve-per-cylinder heads driven by an overhead cam per bank through a system of rockers and rollers to reduce losses due to friction. The modern character of the engine is demonstrated by dual ignition to ensure perfect combustion and the dual lambda sensor that creates a uniform mixture at the cylinders in any operating conditions, resulting in improving consumption and harmful emissions.

Chassis

An all-new Moto Guzzi 2020 MGX-21 Custom Motorcycle comes with a secure double cradle tubular frame structure, stiffened thanks to large-diameter tubes in the front section and reinforcing plates in the rear part, uses an ingenious elastic-kinematic engine mounting system developed by Moto Guzzi to eliminate the vibrations transmitted to the rider during ride. However, at a standstill rider will still feel those pulsations generated by the decisive action of the two 104mm diameter pistons in the Moto Guzzi big block that excite even the most experienced biker, amplifying the living character of the bike.

The motorcycle comes with 21 inches of front wheel led to a significant evolution of the frame that guarantees high levels of comfort and riding pleasure. The brand has developed a steering geometry that guarantees balance and ease of riding, admirably reconciling two abilities, the comfort and load capacity of custom with the dynamism and performance. It contributes to achieving the goal is the patented maneuvering assistance system that reduces the tendency of the steering to close in low-speed and high steering angle maneuvering, counterbalancing the weight of the steering, thanks to a method of regressive springs and particular kinematics.

The engineers put their attention toward the riding position to make it comfortable. The new two high semi-handlebars that lean toward the rider and the forward footrests and very comfortable seating position just 740mm from the ground ensure dominating posture in the saddle that is comfortable and extended for the rear. It helps in giving maximum control to the rider but at a standstill and during the ride. Dark and luxurious, the flagship of Mandello can provide a comfortable seat for a passenger to be enjoyed alone. In the latter case, the portion of the saddle dedicated to the pillion can be easily removed so the rider can travel like a solitary knight in perfect harmony with his mount. In place of the passenger saddle, one can install a carbon fiber cover or the top case mounting bracket. Both are available in the rich Moto Guzzi accessories catalog dedicated to the MGX-21.

The braking system comprises a trio of large diameter discs, and four-piston front calipers and radial connection painted red to highlight the MGX-21’s exhibitionist personality. The suspension system boasts quality elements featuring the fork of 45mm diameter stanchions that works with the pain of rear shock absorbers with adjustable hydraulics in extension and spring preload through the convenient remote hydraulic preload.
