Rosso Corsa register


Recommended Posts

In response to popular demand I am starting a Rosso Corsa register, so we can get an idea of how many bikes were made, and which countries they ended up in.

 

Everyone who knows anything about bikes knows that the Rosso Corsa is the ultimate edition of the V11, with proper Swedish suspension (not like the cheap and nasty stuff they fitted to the Tenni and Rosso Mandello), and proper clip ons unlike the effeminate high rise bars of the Cafe Sport and Coppa Italia (Grandma has a bad back so she needs high bars!). There are even rumours that the Rosso Corsa had a slightly higher compression motor.

 

And obviously red is the colour you need on an Italian bike- anything else (black or green for example) is simply wrong.

 

So let me know who you are, where you are, year of bike and your frame number. Feel free to post a pic too!

 

I'll start with mine:

My pork chops look like a 10 yr old with a chipping hammer had an afternoon to play with them . Perfection ? You drag a tool box drawer across a four coat of clear on a CF front fender . I went from K

Looking at other's pics of their RC... yes, the valve cover should be red. Kane, aside from some minor imperfections (paint nicks on left porkchop, dents in right canister) it seems to be relativ

Guy, you forgot to mention the tasteful draped flag pinstriping as there's no wear to hang your fluffy dice unlike your Saxo (any small hot hatch or even better base model tarted up with body kit and drain pipe exaust)

 

 

Any way the pictures are looking good - well those with the fairing still on :)

BTW, I have been told - and I agree - that I need to lose the pink helmet to do the bike justice, but aftermarket pipes are a little higher on the priority list right now.....

It was a gas on the track!!

Well, i don't know about the "hot" part, but thanks for the sentiment!!

And apparently, I'm in good company with the helmet - thanks for posting that!!!

The RC is actually down in LA as I write, getting some custom pipes made for it by a Guzzi friend and welding wizard. Then it will go to Todd E. for a complete "physical", PC III installation, and mapping. Can you imagine how badly I cannot wait to get it back??
