Kia ora fellow Guzzisti.
We hope all is going well in your world. We are very grateful for your support this year and look forward to being able to help you with your Guzzi passion in the future.
No time like the present to get your bike ready for the summer ahead. As usual Moto Kiwi is well stocked with consumables and more to make your riding experience an enjoyable one with overnight access for many parts.
We also have some special prices on selected items until the end of December.
This includes a pair of Hepco Becker 35 litre hard panniers and frame designed to fit Nevada models and can also be adapted to fit onto 750 Breva. Contact us for a price and further information.
Also on special a crash protector to limit damage on the rear drive unit fitted to all the big block single sided swingarm models such as the Griso ,Breva 1100, Sport 1200 etc.
We also have on special a pair of Lafranconi 'Competitione' mufflers for any of the California 1100 models - these are the same shape and look as the originals and so will bolt straight on - but they do come with a stronger sound and better music than the standard ones.
Big congratulations from us to Vince Burrell who has just won the NZ Classic Race Register Open Modified title for 2015. As his fellow competitors will have noticed, Vince has really come of age this year, and for us it is really good to see how he has developed over the past few years. We have been involved with Vince from the beginning of his racing and have shared the highs and the lows associated with his endeavours. The wins, the blow ups , the odd off here and there, it's all part of the experiance. Keep an eye out for him this summer.
Also of great interest this year has been the project put together by Mike Noonan. Mike has built a V35 Guzzi to take on the 350cc world record at Bonneville Salt Flats Speed Week. Mike has developed and fitted a turbo charger and a fuel injection system to this machine.
Conditions were too wet this year to run at Bonneville and the event was cancelled. However Mike and his team did get to squeeze an unofficial run on some fairly loose salt and managed to get up to speeds well above the official record. At this stage I'm not sure what his plans are, but hopefully they'll be able to return next year and have another go at knocking it off.
Wishing you all safe riding and great rides over summer,
All the best from us, Pete and Debbie.
