I'm thinking I'd like a nuove falcone
« on: January 16, 2017, 08:36:55 pm »
Hi.

I currently own a 1982 Moto Morini 500 sport, a Morini 1972 Corsaro 125 special and a 1961 Lambretta Li 125.
I'm a big fan of Guzzi's having owned a V65 and a Centauro.
I'm really getting an itch for a nuove falcone.
The only stumbling block is the price, with dealers asking around 5k for one.
I was really looking at spending around 3 - 4k max for one, selling the Morini to finance it.
Can a good one be had for that kind of money?

Clive

I can't help you with pricing Clive, sorry, but if you feel like torturing yourself further, I have lots of Nuovo Falcone videos on my youtube channel:  https://www.youtube.com/user/nick949eldo/videos

Good luck

not sure how much of a problem it is to get a imported bike registered, but on the continent a nuovo falcone can be had for  3500-4000 euro...
having said that , you might try one before comitting , the falcone is about as fast as your corsaro , and weighs as much as the two morini's put together....
i have been out accelerated by trucks on mine, not everybody can adapt to that...

Prices have risen, but that's a good thing; better to invest your money in bikes that increase in value than sticking it in the bank. You still see tatty ones for under 3K, and that Civile at <3K has to be a good buy if it runs and shifts.

I paid 2 7 for mine and it's only needed setting up and consumerables. Bought it a couple of years ago. Don't think anyone else was interested

John Fallon of https://www.madeinitalymotorcycles.com/ has two very nice Military ones at the moment - not cheap though.
I've done deals with John a lot over the years and he's a decent bloke - but these NF's were too steep in my opinion.

Very nice bikes. I actually don't find the prices to be absurd, as long as the internal quality matches the exterior (eh Jake?!).

I know nothing about those machines, but I know if John says they're good, then they're good.

Indeed Nick, but that's the same with any old bike.
I can't complain; it may have a rusty bore, but it ran for 15 years without burning oil, and the valve gear issues, could probably happen to any machine. Buyer beware is a fine idea, but if it's impossible to check, and it usually is, then you pays your money and you takes your chance... ;)
