Audace

It attacks the asphalt and shows its charismatic personality with every detail, popular with bikers of character.
Few frills, elongated riding position, drag bar handlebars and muscular lines: this is the bike to ride alone, accompanied by the roar of the powerful engine, without a destination.
Ostentatious, muscular and fierce, the Moto Guzzi Audace can be picked out immediately by its front end, made stylistically lighter by the circular headlight unit and the carbon mudguard mounted on a fork without any telescope covering.
Audace has no chromium plating: every mechanical detail, each small exposed metallic part is dark as night, an ideal condition for fully enjoying a bike in solitude with the striking beauty of this new Moto Guzzi 1400cc.
