2014 Moto Guzzi California
1400 TOURING W ABS
The California 1400 Touring epitomizes a modern-looking bagger: long sweeping lines and curvaceous accents but nothing too loud or obnoxious in the styling department. From a performance and function perspective the 1400 Touring features all the attributes a tech junkie craves: ride-by-wire throttle control (first time ever on a Guzzi) electronic cruise control dual-channel ABS and MGCT traction control (the only cruiser in the world with all four of these technologies) which is pretty impressive based on its competition.The bike?s ergonomics are pretty comfortable. The rider positioning provides more of an on-top-of-the-bike feel and not necessarily that in-the-bike feel which bagger riders have become accustomed to. But the large seat?s shape is still cushy and positions you at barely an arm?s reach to the handlebar. The windshield also serves its purpose well in that wind buffeting is very minimal if at all. As for the foot positioning the floorboards are adequate?large enough for stretching out a bit while not being too cumbersome.To sum up the California 1400 Touring model is a great long-distance bike especially if you want to get there going like a bat outta hell!RIDING IMPRESSION:Wes DrelleshakEditor BaggersThe handling of this bike is really good mainly due to the geometric sports car-like suspension and adjustable traction control. If I were to pick a favorite thing about the bike it would be the ABS brakes. They?re fantastic! In fact I would hardly use the rear brakes because the front brakes were simply nothing short of magnificent. I could come in hot into a corner and tap the front brakes to slow down and feel completely in control. The more I rode the bike the more I fell in love with it. If I could say anything negative about the California 1400 Touring bike it would be that the large center gauge glares annoyingly and is somewhat hard to see at various times of day and I?m also not a huge fan of the white seat.
