Steering geometry, suspension and tire choices are designed to enhance stability and road holding. The chassis spans a wheelbase of 60.4 inches and offers an ample seat, adjustable in height between 32.3 and 33.1 inches. At the front is a very solid and functional multi-adjustable Marzocchi inverted fork with massive 50mm chromed tubes—no expensive TinAl plating here. The steering axis is set at a 27-degree angle and, in combination with the tall, 110/80-19 front tire, returns a substantial 5 inches of trail. The rear suspension is entrusted to the well-honed Moto Guzzi CARC single-sided-swingarm monoshock suspension. The rear tire is a 180/55-17, a versatile Pirelli Scorpion Sync radial. A generous 6.7 inches of front-wheel travel and 6.1 inches in back are intended for a high level of comfort on bumpy pavement, but a glance at the scale indicates that off-road jaunts might not be in the program: Claimed curb weight is 563 pounds. Stopping is via twin 320mm Brembo discs and the latest radial-mount four-piston calipers.
