Dark, elegant, sleek. These are the adjectives we look for in a motorcycle. So when we came across the Moto Guzzi MGX-21 Flying Fortress, its aesthetic and sheer power were something that certainly caught our eye. It’s a dark take on a cruiser that premiered at this year’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota and stole the show in terms of elegance and technology.
Featuring both Italian taste and American style, the MGX-21 pushes the limits of traditional style, crossing the common bridge into the realm of science fiction. It boasts 89 ft-lbs of torque, thanks to the Moto Guzzi Big Block engine, carbon fiber wheels, a ride-by-wire throttle, power maps, and evolved traction control for a smooth and comfortable ride across the many miles of America’s highways. The MGX-21 also comes with red cylinder head covers, a carbon fiber body, an extended flyscreen, memory foam rider and passenger saddles, and carbon fiber underseat side panels. Moto Guzzi is also rolling out their infotainment system with this bike as well, boasting the functionality and sound quality of a luxury sedan. The bike is available now for reservation and prices start at $21,990. [Purchase]
