165 Miles – 2002 Ghezzi-Brian Furia

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

Ghezzi-Brian is an interesting shop that produces Guzzi-powered specials. Their debut model was the SuperTwin, a production version of the racer they won the 1996 Italian SuperTwin championship with. Their second model was what you see in front of you, a naked variant called the Furia. It had the same drivetrain and proprietary frame, plus Paioli forks, Ohlins shock, OZ wheels, and a gigantic 420mm peripheral disc front brake.

It’s rare, it’s funky, and it weighs almost 80 pounds less than a Moto Guzzi V11 Sport. The looks sure are polarizing, but you’re not going to see another one at your local bike night. The Furia’s light weight, compounded by the capable chassis and 59.3 ft-lbs of torque (at 3,500 rpm) made it an incredibly agile yet powerful bike (not just “for a Guzzi”). Its impressive power-to-weight-ratio also afforded the thing a top speed of 135 mph. At the height of production, G-B was only building a few units every month, making Furias very rare finds, especially on US shores.

This example is VIN: FF1170 and it’s been with the seller for roughly fifteen years. He’s covered about 100 miles, and the bike has just 165 in total. It’s completely stock and claimed to have no mechanical or cosmetic issues.
