Four Extra Valves A Kick in the Pants!

Dear MO’ridians, I’m not to wax lyrical about the beauty of the Lake this time and instead get straight to the point. One stretch of the new Griso’s throttle in the first bit of clean road found was enough to convince me: The has arrived to Mandello, and how. might not be the type of Messiah going to solve all this problems, hunger or war, but a nevertheless.

Guzzi fans all over the can walk proud at last: an engine! What a peach of an This new 8V power-mill deserves a welcoming.

The renewed Guzzi has been churning fine new for the last three years the Aprilia and then Piaggio but they’ve often left me a feeling of: If only the motor had 20 hp. Childish, I know, but the agony power is over then.

wont have to search for aliens ate my sparkplugs excuses now on. The otto valvole , i.e. motor fills up a serious gap had opened up throughout the years of offerings, a gap called powa’. worry, there’s a frame, and plastic body parts and forms attached to that too.

But when you read the 110-hp in the spec sheet, first is: “What? In a Guzzi? Must be a And yet, you can really feel 110 horsies pushing you, no about that.

Even if this kind of might cause Supersport to giggle, then in the context of a bike like the Griso, 110 are a very satisfying herd. Not important, this is the strongest Guzzi has ever mass-produced, and at Guzzi can face off other 1200cc Twins like BMW and Buell without blinking.

The for obtaining this more respectable power looks on paper. New cylinder heads been grafted on top of the good old big base, and these have valves each. A high rather than a truly one is positioned to the side of the combustion and it operates the valves via tiny pretty much like in the generations of BMW Boxers.

In order to power these cams, two chain drives run at the rear, requiring heavily cases and new cylinders too, so engine has no relation to the eight-valve Daytona/Centauro motor of the mid-’90s. In to let this new engine breathe at high revs, enormous bodies of 50mm diameter been installed, but even important is the all-new geometry of the chambers.

During my first miles as I am accustomed to the Griso 8V, it’s the good pull from low that impresses. Not that the old was flat at this range, just that this one is so better from 2000 rpm and on I am tempted to compare it to an air-cooled or Ducati, just sweeter. without pushing beyond revs, you can whisk along at a fast rate and the throttle is damn near perfect.
