Riding impression: Moto Millepercento BB1

With 50% more than the standard Griso the Millepercento BB1 is looking good

shown earlier this the Millepercento BB1 features a bored-out, 1420cc version of the air-cooled opposed-twin used on the Moto Griso 1100. A different system, Ohlins suspension and brakes complete the package, and we the bike actually looks cool – in a lean, mean, way.

Motociclismo recently had the opportunity to the bike at the Monza circuit, in and here are some excerpts what they have to say the BB1:

When you see the Millepercento BB1 for the time, the first thing likely to notice is the radiator, from which the bike quite similar to the standard Guzzi Griso 1100. The is masked by strips of carbonfibre and harm the aesthetics at all.

The 1420cc liquid-cooled engine, has two spark plugs per cylinder and valves, is a perfect fit for the stock Guzzi chassis, which unchanged. The increase in power, the standard Griso 1100, is With 117bhp in place of the bike’s 77bhp, the BB1’s engine is about 50% more than the air-cooled Guzzi

The BB1 feels roomier the stock bike, and is more at higher speeds. The new fuel system made cold a bit difficult, and this needs to be On the move, the bike feels though its low centre of gravity things manageable.

Power delivery is not really or very consistent – the throttle is like an on/off switch. when you try to accelerate gently. the comes in all at once – the amount of that goes to the rear is just not proportional to how much you the throttle. This makes it to control the bike, especially in corners, where it becomes to feed in the power gradually.

On long straights and fast however, the power delivery impressive. The BB1 is stable at high and though turn-in isn’t quick, once you pick a through a corner, the bike much sticks to it. The brakes excellent, very powerful.

And finally, yes, the bike vibrates, though no more the standard Griso.

The Millepercento BB1 be available in Moto Guzzi from February 2009 at a price of around US$32,000.
