The successor to the legendary 850cc Le Mans, the Moto Guzzi LeMans II CX100 was created to satisfy the American mantra of “no replacement for displacement” and as competition to the BMW R100RS. Guzzi took the engine and lower fairings from the 1000SP sport tourer, and threw them on the LeMans. Unfortunately, the bike was slower by some accounts, and it’s been since relegated to an odd footnote in MG history.
