it who recognized this prototype while it was undergoing some testing nearby Belluno, an Italian town close to the Alps.
Actually, in the comparison with the version revealed in the United States, the pictured model shows quite a few differences: it has a two-tone seat, a chrome grab handle for the passenger, two end cans instead of one (and with a pretty different design) white LED rear lights, and a pair of nice support lights at the front.
The definitive, final version of the Moto Guzzi California 1400 should be introduced to the world at the upcoming autumn motor shows, while the arrival on the market should happen at some point next year.
