Moto Guzzi Eldorado Overview
One of the most well-known Moto Guzzi’s is the Moto Guzzi Eldorado. The Eldorado is based on the platform of Moto Guzzi California. It has been built with the engine of California but for a more refined purpose. It’s said that the Eldorado seeks to recreate its namesake’s luxurious fit and finish rolled into a “lounge chair” ride. The uniqueness of the Eldorado arises from its white and black vintage wheels, which are 16-inch spoke twins. The signature white wall colour on wheels makes an Eldorado easily recognizable in the crowd.
Moto Guzzi Eldorado Engine & Transmission
The Eldorado is a bike with the perfect persona of a cruiser, which is powered by the signature Moto Guzzi 1380cc V-twin engine. The engine is liquid and air cooled, and heating shouldn’t be an issue because the cylinder head pops out. The engine delivers a good 96 bhp of power at 6500 rpm and 120 Nm of torque at as low as 2750 rpm. The motor is mated to a 6-speed gearbox, which is not chain driven but shaft driven.
Moto Guzzi Eldorado Mileage
The Eldorado tanks up at 20.5 L and the Moto Guzzi claims a mileage of around 15-20 kmpl. The bike hosts a whole bunch of features, like daytime running lights, flat board foot pegs, removable pillion seat surrounded by a chrome grill and tubeless tyres. Coming to safety, you have twin 320 mm discs from Brembo up front and on the rear, a single 280 m disc again from Brembo with ABS comes as standard. Coming to the other electronics, the bike gets a ride by wire with 3 engine maps, 3 stage traction control and cruise control. The available colours are Rosso Pregiato and Nero Classico.
Moto Guzzi Eldorado Performance and Handling
The 1400 cc engine is as enjoyable as 3 other California-based bikes. Yes, there is a bit of throttle abruptness. The covered rear suspension has brought a new head for complaint. Although it is great on smooth pavements, but if one encounters a sharp bump, the force is directed straight up the rider’s spine. Despite of the torquey engine, the comfortable seats and easy steering along with the ergonomics make a good deal.
