Dr. John Wittner made a name for himself in the late 80’s thanks to his ability to modify the hell out of MG’s – his bikes won consecutive US Endurance Championships, among other racers. Due to his success, the Guzzi factory asked him to come to Italy and help develop a superbike unlike anything the Italian firm had produced before. The Moto Guzzi Daytona 1000 was born, and it was the most powerful Guzzi ever built at the time.

The 992cc V-Twin produced 95 horsepower, good for a top speed of 145 miles per hour. Unusually for a sportbike, the Daytona retained the traditional MG shaft drive, though they utilized a system similar to BMW’s Duolever to counteract shaft-jacking. Realistically, it was a bike that didn’t feel as nimble as the Japanese competition, but die hard Guzzi fans and riders looking for something a little bit different found it be charming, and relatively easy to ride thanks to the torque.

From a Cycle World review in 1993: “The Guzzi is a polished and thoroughly updated version of a machine many had left for dead. It probably won’t ever win a world roadracing championship, but there is no more charismatic motorcycle on the market today. Both the 888 and the Daytona are expensive. Both are exclusive. Both are exciting. Both speak to the emotions. And both are very easy to fall in love with.”

Manufactured in September of 1992, this example is VIN: ZGUKAAKA6PM100024. The seller acquired the bike seven years ago from a private party in New York.

The odometer shows 923 miles.

In preparation for the listing, the seller had us replace the battery, the engine oil and oil filter, the transmission oil, the final drive oil, as well as the spark plugs, the fork seals, and the air filters. We also flushed the brake fluid, adjusted the valves, rebuilt the master cylinder, rebuilt the fuel pump and repaired the fuel pump wiring, cleaned the injectors, and installed new Metzeler Roadtec Z8 tires with date codes of 0422 and 1222.

Finally, we sent out the tank to be lined by GTL.
