Iconic Italian manufacturer Moto Guzzi has unveiled the MGX-21 concept motorcycle at the 2014 EICMA Show in Milan, Italy. While Moto Guzzi has always been known for making offbeat motorcycles, the MGX-21 takes the concept of ‘radical’ to a whole new level. Encased in carbon fibre and sheer magnificence, the MGX-21 has been based on the Moto Guzzi 1400 California retro cruiser motorcycle.
The MGX-21 name was probably coined to represent the 21-inch front wheel of the motorcycle. To create the MGX-21, Moto Guzzi crafted a custom fairing and sweeping tail for the motorcycle and garnished the entire motorcycle in a matte black paint job, with red highlights for the engine head, brake callipers and front fender. The rear tyre is concealed by wraparound side panniers which taper over the motorcycle’s tail and converge at a point.
Moto Guzzi says that the MGX-21 ‘takes and combines elements, seeks out the influence of different cultures but drafts each foundation to lead everything back to the riding experience which belongs to every Moto Guzzi’. While this might sound like gobbledygook, we have been totally smitten by the motorcycle’s looks. Besides the MGX-21, Moto Guzzi also unveiled two other concept motorcycles, the Eldorado and Audace, at the EICMA Show.
