Summary:

It's a great machine designed to last a long time

Faults:

Tail light burned out twice.

General Comments:

This is the most comfortable 750cc bike that I have ever been on. I have taken it on long trips across the USA and never a problem. I have gotten as high as 58 miles per gallon on trips.

The straight line high speed stability could be a little better, but it's not bad. The handling in the city is so good that it seems like the bike knows where I want to go.

This is the perfect bike for a mature person that just likes to ride and not have to fuss much with maintenance.

Everyone that sees it compliments me on how nice my bike looks.

Summary:

The perfect commuter

Faults:

When I first got the Breva, it had an idle problem. When I stopped at a light or stop sign, it would sometimes die. I took it in for the 600 mile service and the dealer found that a couple of hoses to the gas tank were not connected properly. The dealer fixed it and I have not had any other problems.

General Comments:

The Breva is a very nice commuter bike. I just started riding it to work. My commute is around 45 minutes to an hour. About half of it is in stop and go traffic. I get around 50 miles to the gallon. It is easy to maneuver and comfortable.

I don't see too many Moto Guzzi bikes where I live. I have not seen any other Breva's. So the bike is very unique.
