An update about new Moto Guzzi models

After four low-res images found their way to the net,
Piaggio Press released an official artical about two new models.
I will just quote the text from their own artical:
The new California prototype, with an original 1400cc transverse V90 twin-cylinder engine, carrieson the tradition established by a bike acclaimed in five continents for its comfort, reliability and performance, delivering a re-styling that enhances the architecture of the powertrain and the comfort assured by a enerously sized saddle and tank. Fitted neatly around the cylinder unit, the tank heightens the impact of the new valve covers, helping to create a new style element on this irresistible California. All the technical components –wheels, brakes, suspension – are new too, proclaiming the California’s membership of an eagerly awaited new generation of Moto Guzzi bikes.
Much more of a classic but equally fascinating, the Moto Guzzi V7 Scrambler is built on on the famous frame of the V7 Classic fitted with a 750cc small-block engine. Chrome trim, spoked wheelsand sports tyres create a bike that, in the 1960s, would have qualified as a "Regularity" model like the famous 175 Lodola, which this Scrambler recalls with its low headlamp and integrated instrument panel. The exhaust system with its two raised side-by-side silencers is a distinctive feature of this Moto Guzzi Scrambler.

Images their published officialy, for public, are also low quality, but, of course,
journalists from the highly rated magazines got some hi-res photos.

The best quality photos (I managed to find) are released by,
so you might want to check out their artical too.

Besides these, I found two more images in decent quality (at least for the web).
For best viewing open them in new tab or download and open in some photo viewer.

New California looks fantastic to me, that's why I made this update - I love it.
