The Moto Americano V1000 was created by gearhead Steve Vergano out of a deep passion for motorcycles and a desire to build something truly original. Steve has spent the past 10 years assisting with the development of the 90 degree V Twin with Wescoa Engine Technologies. My goal was to put our engine into a bike. After reviewing many different styles of motorcycles, we felt the 2001 Moto Guzzi Lemans was the ideal choice offering modern suspension and brakes. The new engine represents a significant power increase and is tuneable to produce different powerband characteristics as well.
