Rossi tests 4-valve Guzzi “official” racing bike

Recommended Posts

Well, well, well - here’s a turn up for the record books! 


The Genesis of the GOAT drifting a race prepped Guzzi!!

“Excited” and “lot’s of potential” superlatives abound - was this the seed of an idea sown by a 4-valve Dakar prepared racer which germinated years later... giving birth to the chiselled Zaeta?

Does this Dakar Guzzi spirit hover over hallowed Tavullia ranch dirt? 😇

The Butterfly Effect really is real. 
Have you ever experienced it?

That is a true, but misleading topic title. Good on you for the "made you look" effect.  I got all worked up thinking Valentino would be on a new 4V LeMans. Still a great article. Thanks for sharing that blast from the past. I am enjoying my 4V 1200cc Stelvio, which undoubtedly owes something of its existence to this early "butterfly" race effort. So yes, I have experienced the butterfly effect. Although the butterflies in the carbs have been replaced by fuel injection.
