Moto Guzzi MGX 21 Fly­ing Fortress – £13,995

BIKE (UK) - - KNOW HOW -

Look left field and you can make some as­ton­ish­ing sav­ings, and we’d sa­lute any­one with the com­mit­ment to take ad­van­tage of the six-grand sav­ing be­ing of­fered by a Farn­ham Honda dealer on a Moto Guzzi MGX21 Fly­ing Fortress. Let’s be­gin with the price tag, which at £13,995 is a stag­ger­ing £6004 be­low list price. And it has cov­ered just 100 miles, so pre­sum­ably the pre­vi­ous owner was so shocked with his pur­chase he was pre­pared to take a mas­sive hit just to free up some garage space. Cov­ered in car­bon and boast­ing a 1380cc V-twin, if the batwing fair­ing and car­bon front wheel insert aren’t, the red cylin­der heads and Brembo brake calipers will guar­an­tee at­ten­tion. Sub­tle the MGX21 isn’t, es­pe­cially when you fire up the on­board en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem with its 25W per chan­nel amp. If you want to stand out from the crowd lit­tle does the job bet­ter than the Fly­ing Fortress. It is a re­mark­able ma­chine in ev­ery sense of the word and you won’t see an­other on the road.
