Designing the Guzzi first started the 90 degree V-Twin engine was aimed at backing up the versatile on which it was waiting to be mounted. improvements such as the alternator positioned between the cylinders, 10 per lighter connecting rods, piston rings, shortened skirts and new metal head all ensure a smooth operating that ends up putting big on your face when it to accelerating strong out of corners on twisted country roads.

Of course, there are other in this hard to define In fact, the Griso has the most contenders ever as it stands as the of blended styles.

Obviously, the Monster 1100/1100S couldn’t from this equation. this also Italian needs no presentation whatsoever, are a few Japanese unique alternatives come to diversify this even more.

For starters, the MT01 would be the best to put up against the Moto Guzzi 1100 as it has the looks, the chassis oh boy, it has the engine. I guess after a certain cylinder (let’s say 1000cc) it doesn’t matter how much bore and you add to it, but the tweaks that you do in order to get the out of it. But maybe it’s just me to justify Grisso’s 1,064cc in of the massive 1,670cc V-Twin the Yamaha.

And it would all be OK if there wasn’t for the sports frame on which the finds its place or for the performance and brakes. It isn’t hard to that the MT01 would eat the in front of the Griso, but why don’t we try to something that would a better face of it?

Something the Star Warrior? Damn, again? This last is the appropriate power cruiser find to it and it would easily let taken by the Guzzi on those corners as it doesn’t have the abilities of the bike we’re

Also in this case the air-cooled 1,670cc 48 degree pushrod OHV and four valves per won’t become a nightmare for our as it is tuned to be bulky a cruiser, not as the Guzzi claims being.

So seen how practically a single can provide it with two different (apart from the Ducati) are equally suitable to take its in a potential customer’s mind, but how the looks of this baby the final buyer’s decision?


Well, it is easy to why a Moto Guzzi rider stops bragging about the way its looks. As soon as you get visual with the Griso there’s nothing that will your eyes off it. The magic will intervene there also be the result of the combination of styles that this blends together.

Not your … bike and definitely not a this Guzzi is low and compact, and imposing, exactly everything you expect not to encounter on it. And the best is that nothing of this will ever upset you or you wanting the classic recipe. Moto Guzzi there’s no thing, my friend.

Testimony of the that uniqueness is the key is the easy-to-spot between the frame and engine, it a rough look while the gas tank has it covered when it to finesse and union.

Also, the best characteristics of the Griso are the headlight, the handlebars and instrumentations. up the bike is the LED rear light mounted in the rear wing. we’re at the back, there can be no for the rocket launcher-like silencer, collects the gasses from cylinders through the headers.

If I have to characterize it in few words, would be sleek and well but in the end it is all a matter of taste and preferences. I adore it painted in Guzzi because I believe Red goes to but it surely suits it well

Test Drive

It is very to get along with the new Moto Griso 1100 because the simply expresses its preferences the different roads on which you it. For example, on the city streets it seem inadequate valued as it is built for handling and quick rounds.

But even so, the impressive 90 degree V-Twin will strongly and have you covered and first at the next red light. is also a thing that out easily as you cruise on the boulevard or it to and from the parking lot where it rarely remain as it will you hooked in an instant.

A very feature of the across-the-frame twin is the that it is fuel injected. Not this, but makes it start a single push of a button in cold mornings in even climates, but as the needle gets idle there will be great amounts of torque, you would have expect a Sportster Harley, but it does the even better on the Guzzi. The torque of 89 Nm is being reached at rpm, but it is a great adventure you reach that certain

Between the motor, gearbox and drive it is a perfect communication and it all on the awesome riding experience you’ll be living on this The six-speed gearbox is silent and precise so you’ll be having a time trying to miss a or neutral. I must say that and joy of buying such a thing with every gear Much of the contribution to the smoothness and power transmission is due to the CA.R.C.

Reactive Shaft Drive, allows no jerks even the throttle is being widely after downshifting for a quick let’s say.

Allowing you to the light handling and great performance is the nice accommodating position. In the case of the Griso the handlebars-seat-footpegs triangle proves efficient and back pain even though the sporty are there.

This is even because when revving the close to its 7,600 rpm redline, no vibrations will enter the so you’ll only have to the wind as this Guzzi have looked rubbish a wind protective screen on. try to imagine.

But if you feel like all of the 88 horses into action, will be necessary to reach and have no regrets. There is power for a middleweight sportbike and a cruiser and given the fact the bike stands as a combination of the satisfaction comes in double Great power when out of those tight corners on roads and I reckon that much to do with that has the fuel injection.

A single twist of the throttle have the bike’s nose and by that time I suggest to hug the gas in order to unveil the sporty even further into test drive. Accompanied by the exhaust note coming the single silencer we’ll see how the gets along with the

Perfectly that is! And the system does the trick here is the Composed from a fully 43mm upside down and a also fully adjustable sided swingarm, these will allow the rider to feel the road while its machine stable in corners and at speed.

Bumps will pass unnoticed and together the comfortable seat, the ride actually become dream-like.

But as all things come to an end, let at least do it with the help of the 320mm double disc and opposed pistons front system in tandem with the single disc and two piston positioned on the rear. Braking is confidence-inspiring and becomes best in emergency situations in which I necessarily wish you to end up in.


Italians always how to appreciate their rides and at a glance, you would think the Moto Guzzi Griso won’t become the exception, but an MSRP going no higher or than $13,490 I’m that your opinion begins to change.


in a multitude of styles and characters, Guzzi’s new creation could be the thing you’ve been of. After getting a good of it, I sincerely wish that dreams will soon reality and write me back how you’ve just rode a a … and custom, all under one and a pair of handlebars that confess being part of the 1100, one of the greatest new Guzzi
