The Moto Guzzi MGX-21 is a faired touring motorcycle. While Moto Guzzi has always been known for making offbeat motorcycles, the MGX-21 takes the concept of ‘radical’ to a new level.
The name, MGX-21, was coined to represent the 21-inch front wheel of the motorcycle. To create the MGX-21, Moto Guzzi crafted an aerodynamic fairing and sweeping tail. The matte black paint job with red highlights for the engine head, brake callipers and front fender give the motorcycle a sinister look. The rear tyre is concealed by wraparound side panniers which taper over the motorcycle’s tail and converge at a point. The fenders, fuel tank and radiator cowl are made of carbon fibre.
Powering the MGX-21 is a 1400cc transversely-mounted V-twin engine, delivering 96bhp and 121Nm of torque through a six-speed gearbox. It gets electronic aids like ABS and traction control. It competes with the Yamaha VMax, Harley-Davidson Road King and Indian Chief Dark Horse.
