Millepercento Alba: The Moto Griso 8V’s hotter steps out

The Millepercento Alba seems to be better in every way than the Moto Guzzi 8V that it’s based on. we like this bike much!

Until recently, was just about the only hot we knew of, but the September issue of Sport Leisure features an twin that puts the Four actress in the shadows. Cathcart rides the Millepercento for MSL and says the bike is fast and to ride hard, with and linear pickup in revs 4,000rpm upwards. ‘It’s quicker than any stock Guzzi,’ he adds.

Powered by the SOHC twin-cylinder engine from the Moto Griso 8V, the Alba is produced by one of the biggest dealers of Moto in Italy. The bike has been by Guiseppe Ghezzi, the man responsible for the MGS-01 racebike, and as an option, the is also available with the pushrod engine from the BB1.

‘When I joined Millepercento to the Alba, my first objective was to do I’d been denied at Moto which was to create a streetlegal sportbike, meeting all required and emissions norms,’ says Well, with 108bhp and of torque, and a dry weight of 206 kilos, the isn’t exactly a threat to the S1000RRs and RSV4s of this but as Cathcart found out, still a pretty capable in its own right.

‘The Alba’s carefully Ghezzi-designed tubular steel chassis uses the V-twin as a member. It’s noticeably between the rider’s knees a stock Guzzi frame and adds to the sense of agility the delivers. You sit within the Alba than on it, as on a stock Guzzi,’ Cathcart. ‘The Alba’s is quicker and more precise to the stock Guzzi Griso] and you notice the greater responsiveness of its wheelbase and more radical geometry,’ he adds.

‘Ghezzi’s integration of the Griso’s aluminium shaft final housing and parallelogram rear into the Alba’s chassis works well. This probably be the best handling Guzzi sportbike I’ve yet even better than the paragon, the MGS-01 ,’ says

So what’s next, for the Millepercento ‘We must go racing with it, to the marque as well as to learn how to the design. We hope to do that year,’ says Ghezzi. we certainly like the Alba – have done some work here in producing a Guzzi -based sportbike Guzzi themselves should but for some strange reason, shy from doing so.
