This one's been listed in Florida, a little over two weeks ago, 18k miles, looks really clean. 

Moto Guzzi Centauro 1998 - $5500 (Bradenton).

Not sure what makes it a "sport"

So, help me out here. I have always been under the impression that the Centauro had a short travel (rear) suspension. Or, maybe, that it was lowered? Could that really be?

And is the Centauro motor in the same state of tune as the Daytona? What differences?

TIA, always learning . . . :mg:

I remember riding a Centauro back in the day while I was regularly riding my T3 850. Had it on a test ride from 3Cross in Dorset UK. I remember it as harsh and horrid.  Felt like the crankshaft was being turned by sledge hammers hitting the pistons down, the whole bike seemed to bounce along the road, or rather proceeded in a series of jolts. Getting back on my T3 was a relief.  The Centauro was also as ugly as I am.  Doing anything to turn it into something else would be a blessing, perhaps to weight a yacht buoy down would be apt.

Have been posting on the other forums and thought I might check in with you folks as well.

Considering a Centauro sport.

Would be looking for one as usual low mileage ,excellent condition unmolested.

If any one of you might know of such a creature would be good to hear from you.

PM or other.

Ciao

There is one for sale in NZ.
