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.

The Transverse layout just plain makes sense being shaft drive. Guzzi makes great riding motorcycles and the engines are practically bullet proof.

I'm no fan of metrics but,..MG must know that cruisers have inline, not transverse V-twins.
MT667 -Nice bike and good sound  November 7, 2010 06:38 AM
I have always enjoyed a Guzzi, especially the wonderful sound. Lets not get into comparing this Guzzi to a Harley. The outdated Harley sportster in no comparison to the Nevada.

Classic & unique, Would take one over a Sportster any day.
Gritboy -Good weight and nice looking  November 3, 2010 08:05 AM
Glad to see Guzzi still putting out their cruiser. With good power to weight and decent handling compared, it should be fun to ride if it's your cup-o-tea. Reminds me a bit of my first bike with those classic side-jutting cylinder heads.
