The first Moto Guzzi Quota 1100ES was already convincing with its solid comfort, good brakes and adequate performance. Thanks to a new frame tail, the seat height shrank from 870 to 840mm after all. The Quota is still shaft-driven, but it lacks the sophistication of its road-based siblings. That aside, there's very little shaft reaction to speak of.
