Moto Guzzi is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its popular Nevada model with an “Anniversario” sports custom version. The Nevada has a long and storied chapter in the Italian marque’s history, providing a “worthy alternative to the American custom” combined with the performance of a more expensive motorcycle. With a claimed dry weight of 405 pounds and a compact frame, the Nevada is said to provide a light, nimble ride.

The “Anniversario” version includes a new two-up saddle, a healthy-sized rear tire covered by a rear fender with two-tone paint and an all-new chrome-plated taillight. The revised look of the rear is completed by new chrome-plated grab handles.

To place as much focus as possible on the Nevada’s signature transverse-mounted, 90-degree V-Twin, the side fairings have been re-designed. The 3.7 gallon tank has an attractive two-tone paint scheme, black on the bottom to complement the darkened features of the engine and covers and white on the upper portion. To make the bike more sporting, the Nevada “Anniversario’s” handlebars have been narrowed and lowered.
