11 Moto Guzzi Breva 1200 ABS discussion forum:
|crocket said 2012-08-12 10:39|
I´ve owned a 2010 Breva 1200 for over almost two years and am becoming apprehensive about keeping it beyond it´s 2 yr warranty period. I really love it´s raw l-twin character, it´s ponderous but neutral handling, it´s styling, and comfort etc. but I´ve had three warranty issues that haven´t really been addressed soon enough and adequately enough for me to have confidence in remaining an owner. I had a fuel sender that was defective from first delivery, then a part was ordered and it arrived some eight months later but turned out to be the wrong part, so it took a month or so for this to be rectified. Nine months and near 20,000 ks later I was riding home near midnight, in the middle of winter, and my gear shift lever has broken into a few peices, at the shifter spline, and fell off. It took amost a month for this part to arrive, and I´d tried contacting Australian dealers interstate, who couldn´t help me any more. About this time my side stand safety ignition cut off began to stay on, such that I couldn´t start it unless I was aboard the bike or using it´s centre stand. I asked that this be sorted at my 20,000 service and it hasn´t, and the problem remains, but will, hopefully be fixed over the next couple of days, I hope. Over the last few months my idling speed has jumped from the normal 1200rpm to high teens once the motor is warm to hot and I´m hoping that it´s sorted over the next few days. I´m really feeling interested in an alternative that will give me reliability with a special character and am seriously wanting a Honda vfr800 at the moment to satisfy this expectation. I´ll leave my brief review there. I´m interested in anyone else who either has these concerns who could offer me some assurance that I´m just becoming unduly anxious about unreliability that could be less common with Guzzis, or even more common with Japanese bikes, or bmws, for instance.
