Not many words are needed to describe Axel Budde´s Kaffeemaschine creations. They are just the best real-world Guzzi builds on the planet. Full stop.

Axel is a perfectionist in both design and engineering – and a fan of old school values. His latest bike, called GT 1000 – addressing touring needs for the long run, makes no difference. With hidden USB port, glove box, comfy seat, relaxed foot rests, an innovative but inconspicuous switch unit plus heated grips, it´s aiming for GS territory.

But the bike is pumped up with loads of Guzzi love, unrivaled build quality and an engine that can amaze you without offering a million (digital) horses. It takes some confidence to admit, but a connoisseur doesn´t need more. Believe me!
