Description

Additional photos of this Moto Guzzi MGS-01 Corsa are available here for your perusal.

Moto Guzzi Sport, Number 1 – that’s what MGS-01 stood for. Doesn’t matter what you called it, it was an unexpected taste of what Guzzi would be capable of if they wanted to rub shoulders with Ducati or Aprilia in the exotic, red-blooded Italian sportbike game. The first examples of the bike were called the Corsa, a 1,200cc track-only superbike with a MSRP of about $25,000. It was supposed to be the predecessor for a more civilized street version called the Serie.

Even if the Corsa was track only, the bodywork was clearly ready for a headlight and the other components required to be street legal – Guzzi’s intent was to create a milder version with a 992cc engine. The street legal version Serie would have had a MSRP of approximately $17,000, but as you can tell from our word choice, it never came to be. Long story short, just 150 (that number is up for debate) Corsas were built.

Basic numbers were 122 horsepower, 83 pound-feet of torque, and 420 pounds of dry weight.

It was equipped with Ohlins suspension, radial-mount Brembo brakes, forged aluminum OZ wheels, and a Termignoni exhaust.

For an excellent story on the Corsa, check out this article on OddBike.

Manufactured in November of 2004, this example is VIN: ZGULRRA004M10016, Engine #: KW040132.


The odometer shows 105 kilometers (65 miles).

The seller is the original owner – he “rode it for a couple of hours at Willow Springs to break it in” back in 2004 and never rode it again.

Modifications:
Guzzi-Tech head protectors.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:



Inside of the tank:

It is riding on the original Michelin Pilot slicks.

The sale includes the factory MGS-01 bag with owner’s guide/spare parts catalog.

It also includes a NOS set of bodywork and a Pit Bull stand.
