first off accept it's not a sport bike by any means but it is a very good all rounder,had guzzi's for 20yrs and this is the most refined with very good finnish on quality components,good tank range but annoying back lash at low speeds from rear transmission,with panniers and top box you could tour anywhere two no problem,have had zero reliability issues other than slight misting of clocks,all in all a very good machine (read more)

I have had Guzzi's for 25 years and they have always been good, with their own little idiosyncrasies but it is nice to see a Guzzi straight from the crate which is a brilliant local back road machine.
Stick on the top box and panniers and install my wife on the pillion and tour the Scotish highlands. The ride is predictable and it is a machine which fully ticks all boxes for a machine which can do most things well.
I have many bikes over my biking life but nothing quite beats the Breva as... (read more)

Old world styling, love those brakes! I've had my Guzzi Breva almost two years now, and truth be told, am quite impressed with the handling and power, but that transmission......YIKES!!
My wife and I have both decided that a cement block in place of the stock seat would be an improvement. Horrible dealer network, learn the maintenance yourself. (read more)

Traded in my 54 plate BMW R1150RS for the Moto Guzzi Breva 1100 and I've no regrets. Handling is superb and you can ride it all day long without getting a numb backside. Can't find anything to fault apart from the bit of condensation inside the clock face but apart from that perfect! (read more)

Not to compare with earlier models. It's again a new generation Guzzi.
Think about the differences between V7 -> T series, T-series-> V11 and now it is V11->Breva V1100/1200
If the drivetrain had a good transmissiondamper I would rated the bike a 10. (read more)

This Moto Guzzi Breva is brilliant on twisty b roads where its grunty engine and planted handeling encourages swift progress if you want to go for it. On the other hand it will tour all day 2 up without problems. The big seat is comfotable and with large grab rails its easy for pillions and for you to haul it onto the center stand.
The trip computer is useful if you take the time to learn how it works and is easy to use with gloves on.
The finish is really impressive and with the shaft drive... (read more)

I've had the bike 12 months from new and have done 20,000 miles and expect to do another 20,000 this year, that includes a trip from the UK to the Polar Circle in Norway to be repeated again this year.
I use the bike every day, whatever the weather, doing 60 miles a day on twisty "A" roads and it's proved itself a good performer. Only problems apart from a bit of rust on the forks, I think due to stones hitting the bike at very high speeds, has been a battery failure and a broken horn... (read more)

I've had the Moto Guzzi Breva for 4 months now and really love it. Leaves a big smile on your face and tonnes of feelgood factor. Mine has a screen which is effective, but upright, so you get wind noise and turbulance, especially if you don't use ear plugs (I would recommend using them). For mainly touring use, the Norge with it's full fairing is better, but you will suffer in summer at low speeds or stops as the heat wells up behind it. In this respect the Breva is better, being more open... (read more)
