Best description I've seen of Italian V's

Recommended Posts

While not a Guzzi, the description nails Italian V's:

"I’ve recently grown fonder of Italian Vees, and the 900 motor is the star of the show for me. While the Americans seem to be chasing the elusive power curve of a Caterpillar dump truck and the Japanese are hunting some kind of 20,000 rpm torque-free dream, the Italians are developing engines that punch you in the face with power at a useable rpm, and breathe deep enough that you don’t need 15 gear ratios to keep the bike in the powerband. The Dorso’s 900 V-Twin delivers a perfect example of a wide and smooth—but not bland—power curve that has a useful, enjoyable hit down low but carries you long through the shift point."
