I have had my eyes on them but they are rare and very few dealers.

I wish Victory would put the throttle by wire and cruise control on all baggers and touring bikes. I like the idea of switching between maps too. Seems like the
Americans are slow to get on that band wagon.

Very nice Guzzi. Have an old one. Fun to ride when everything is working right. The one I have seems to break something new every time I get it running. Seriously they are fun when they work right. The old 850T3 I have has well over 120K on it. One of my friends wants a Grizzo. Talked to him about the deals he can get on a Victory,nope he has his heart set on a MG. I personally think he will be happy with it.

You have a good attitude about owning an exotic. Hopefully your friend will too. For me Grizzos are as ferociously ugly as this bike is gorgeous, but to each his own.

A lot of guys get a wild hair for bikes that require a high level of commitment and when push comes to shove they aren't up to the challenge.

That is one well designed beast though. Flowing Italian styling layered over an iconic American type. Footboards even. If MG's test drive truck ever gets anywhere near me, I'm going to get me some of that.

Triumphs, Harleys, Guzzis, Jap bikes.... everyone had issues back in the day...i dont think any company could survive very long in this day and age without putting out 1/2 way decent bikes. Between technology and communication...it woulld make or break them. I went right to the Vic forums when i was looking at them....if it was nothing but complaints...id be riding a new Triumph right now...

Maybe more to come? The Italian answer to the Cross Roads?
