I have found MOTO GUZZI 1200 SPORT for sale on Caferacerforsale website but there is only one image. So I am not getting exact idea on the condition of cafe racer.

There are some features displayed on the website :

Model MGS-01
Build type Pro-Built
Year 2009
Engine size (cc) 1200
Mileage 5000

and the price is $22,000 USD so can anyone please check it and give advice on this bike. I am attaching image which is shown on the website. Moto Guzzi Cafe Racer.jpg

Thanks in Advance!

Not worth USD22K IMHO. It looks like a bike built from a wreck and it would run like crap without an air box.

Go buy a good Ducati, R1 or GSXR750. That Guzzi looks like an over priced bit of junk. I think it was just built to " look sexy " and " sell " .

It does not matter how much money you spend on an ancient motor design, it will never be a good modern sport bike.

The MGS-01 was somewhat of a Guzzi factory race bike. Sold for good menry when new. Some are worth $40000 now I guess.

If you are interested in a bike that they have for sale contact the seller. I appears they are in Belgium.

I also see that this bike may be a replica and not an actual MGS-01.
It was never a race bike.

They ain't worth 40K, that's just what someone might pay. You have confused worth, with value and price.

Well it wasn't a street bike.

It was a Guzzi built to be raced by individuals who had the cash and wanted a Guzzi. It was not a bike used by Guzzi to race themselves.

Yeah, definitely not a MGS-01. The swing arm is wrong and the frame isn't right. Not sure what model that was made from.

The bike that this thread is all about, is all wrong and it ain't a MGS-01. The frame is wrong for a start.

Anybody who paid ten of thousands for a real MGS-01 had rocks in their heads. Even Ducati guys with rocks in their heads make more sense than a MGS-01.
