Moto Guzzi Café Racer Designer's Cut by Oberdan Bezzi
Moto Guzzi Café Racer Designer's Cut by Oberdan Bezzi

Oberdan Bezzi is a Italian motorcycle designer that is already common to see on these pages. We remember that you use the Obiboi name when you work for pure pleasure and you do not have projects in the hands of any of your clients. He is a fan of motorcycles as well as designing them. Yeah it seems hard to believe but there are motorcycle designers who do not believe in the world of motorcycles as a hobby, this is not the case. Luckily the opposite is true here.

He likes to pilot his pen around the drawing board where many café racer cut designs have passed. This Moto Guzzi is a good example of it. The lines, as you can see, are very pure in this Latin coffee maker. Nothing to do with the few models in that segment that we can acquire in our market. Let's see another model loaded with coffee of Moto Guzzi itself and compared their riding postures.

Moto Guzzi V7 Racer

Taking the V7 saga as an example, The differences are obvious. This family of Moto Guzzi classics can be perfectly scrutinized in the complete article that our colleague Luis Font wrote at the beginning of April this year. It must be recognized that Moto Guzzi has put all the meat on the grill with these three motorcycle models in a segment of classics that is very minority. But looking at Oberdan Bezzi's design and putting some fault to the Moto Guzzi V7, I would have kept in the cafe racer model, an aggressive geometry like the one proposed by the Italian designer.

To circulate comfortably we already have the Stone and the Classic but you cannot ask for everything. Looking at the profiles of the photographs, even the Moto Guzzi V7 Racer seems comfortable, contrary to Oberdan Bezzi's proposal that triangulates the footpegs, the seat and the semi-handlebars in a "deliciously painful" posture for the back but that should be so, without concessions. For the record, I would not disgust one Moto Guzzi V7 Racer, of course!
