The Moto Guzzi California is probably one of the most sunning takes on a power cruiser ever. The lines and the curves with that boxer engine thumping proudly as it gives the bike its iconic one off appearance. The California 1400 is everything what Moto Guzzi is, Iconic, Classy and Legendary.

For EICMA 2014, Moto Guzzi has presented three variants of their California 1400 joining the returning Custom and Touring models. Taking the stage at this years EICMA were the Eldorado, the muscle bike styled Audace and the California 1400 Touring Special Edition. 

Moto Guzzi Eldorado - 
The Moto Guzzi Eldorado is a tribute to the classic model of the same name introduced to the U.S. in the late ’60s. The new model sports classic touches such as wire-spoke wheels, white walled tires, chromium sides to the fuel tank, an oversized saddle, gem-shaped taillight and bullhorn handlebar. The Eldorado has a lower setup than the other California models, thanks to its 16-inch wheels. The white wall tires (130/90 up front, 180/65 at the rear) spin under large wraparound fenders paired with covered suspension shocks.

The seat is positioned just 28.5 inches from the ground which, combined with the large footboards and pullback handlebars makes for a relaxed riding position. The classic styling is paired with the California’s modern technology such as ride-by-wire throttle, three ride modes, traction control, the polygonal headlight with LED daylight running lights and a multi-function dot matrix display.

Moto Guzzi Audace - 
The Audace sports a more muscular posture and stands out from the other California models with its blacked-out styling, round headlight and carbon front fender. The footboards and rocker shifter were removed in favor of forward mounted pegs. The seat is lower than on the California Custom, combining with the new foot position and the drag handlebar for more stretched-out riding position. An oversized 200/65 rear tire helps complete the look. The engine is unchanged but the Euro 4-approved megaphone exhausts and a few pounds in weight saving should make the Audace quicker off the line than the rest of the California 1400 family.

Moto Guzzi California 1400 Touring SE -
The special edition version of the Moto Guzzi California Touring adds a passenger backrest, chromium grab handle, chromium-plated sealed fork tubes and a two-tone paint scheme. Otherwise, the SE is identical to the regular California Touring.
