Summary:

An excellent, very underrated motorcycle, I love it!

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Excellent bike for commuting and touring. No problems.

I ride in all types of weather, still looking great.

Always starts first time, but the most time it has been left unridden is only 2 weeks.

Seat very comfortable and plenty of room for luggage options.

Fuel light flickers at 120 miles, but I look for petrol when it stays on at around 160/170 miles.

I've had it at 180 kms and still gaining. 48 bhp; more go than you'd expect.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Original reviewer here. Now at 17000 miles. Slight leak in the shaft drive, but otherwise still going great. Have toured twice round the South Island of New Zealand, and have faced some terrible off road situations, thick gravel and mud. I think this bike is a keeper, as it just keeps on going no matter what. (Sport demon tyres on) Now I have a 2003 Ducati Supersport 1000 for extra fun as well, but I always enjoy my rides on this Guzzi.

Hi. I too covered all of south and all of north island completely on a Guzzi Nevada 750, two up. The bike was 1999 model. The bike is still in New Zealand, it gave no problems at all. From Milford Sound to the Bay of Plenty, to the great surf coast to 70 Mile Beach, the bike just kept going. On returning to the UK, I purchased a 750ie Breva, again at 9000 miles. This bike is superb; faster, more fuel efficient, and attracts attention on the road.

Very good moto bikes.
