The California Titanium is a limited-run custom version of Moto Guzzi's acclaimed cruiser, bringing forth the traditional cool looks of the family but dramatically upping the ante with an awesome titanium look to make people drool. A more unique and personal approach to custom cruisers, the California Titanium also symbolizes the technological advances made at Mandello and a new era in motorcycle manufacturing.
California Titanium -- Custom powercruiser with the legendary, updated 90º V-Twin with hydraulic self-adjusting valves. Brembo Gold Series brakes. Integral braking system. Aerodynamic sport fairing. An easy-riding, dynamite performance cruiser in the ultimate high-tech titanium metallic finish.
Titanium is light and exceptionally strong. It is commonly used in alloys for the aerospace industry and in advanced technical applications where a combination of strength and light weight is essential. Titanium is the symbol of advanced technology. For 2003 it is also the high-tech inspiration for a very different motorcycle.
Naturally, the chassis, shared with the Aluminium, is an exceptional piece of engineering too. It is designed to keep the bike stuck to the road, whatever the surface, while the powerful Brembo disc brakes ensure totally safe braking.
