The styling of the new Moto Guzzi Breva 1200 Sport (www.motoguzzi-us.com), a 95 hp street bike that exceeds 130 mph, recalls the Italian manufacturer’s 1950s-era race bikes. But its engineering is up-to-the-minute. Among the $13,590 bike’s technologies are a wave-shaped brake rotor that increases the front brake’s surface area and thus its efficiency; adjustable, titanium-treated forks that enhance steering; and a single-sided shaft drive that delivers a smooth ride. You can boost the bike’s power by about 10 hp with an optional track kit that includes a racing exhaust system and reconfigured electrical controls.
