Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE – Ride Lasting character.

by Jeff Allen

When the Guzzi Griso hit the market in 2006, the sporty …’s styling and visceral twin-cylinder offered timely promise the classic Italian bike had landed rubber side and would forge full-speed under its new Piaggio Group The second-generation Griso that maintained this momentum its “Quattrovalvole” 1151cc transverse V-Twin supplanting the original’s Breva-based mill.

Our full test of the jet-black Griso 8V (March, 2009) left doubt as to the positive headway made within the revitalized “The all-new eight-valve in this version boosts in a big way, especially beyond rpm,” we proclaimed. “Four-valve allow a compression ratio to 11.1:1, and they let this surprise Ducati Hypermotards the light turns green the usually boring evening

While the few weeks of commuting and riding aboard our Special test Griso failed to a grudge match, it proved an social exercise on wheels. The SE a sense of class with its treatment: Tenni matte-green blacked-out frame and ancillary wire-spoke wheels and stitched saddle skin. Wherever ridden, random men, and children—many of whom appear to not a clutch from a brake either inquired about or gawked over the Griso.

While I can’t profess to what these curious may have been thinking, I suggest what they are by not snatching up a 2012 model— due to Euro fluctuations (in our favor), are to drop in price to $12,490 supplies last.

From its superb fit, and attention to detail, to the relaxed in which it gobbles up highway and backroad apexes, the Griso the goods. The engine starts ease and idles steadily its characteristic side-to-side rocking that is quite soothing stopped at traffic signals. The injection responds to throttle like Swiss clockwork, and torque is ready and willing just above idle to the rev limit.

Upshifts through the six-speed are both light and precise, back-shifting retains a hint of old-school action. Casual within town and an 80-mph pace call for no more 4500 rpm to be dialed up on the large-faced tachometer. Engine vibration is primarily through the tapered anodized superbike bar, yet it subdued throughout the lower of the rev range.

The saddle is as comfy as come, and the riding position you in a posture that’s ideal for cornering without extracting a on the lower back, forearms or when you simply need to get here to there. Chassis is exceptional, as is steering feel, also proved relatively While the suspension provided a degree of support and control, fully adjustable at both thus allowing for a firmer or ride if desired.

The more miles I put on the Griso, the I came to appreciate its finer The bike is undeniably unique and with character, yet it puts ahead of form, and that is an trait in and of itself.
