First Impression: Moto 1100 Sport

When you large-displacement Italian sportbikes, people think Ducati. Moto Guzzi, and images of motorcycles with agricultural motors, enormous wheelbases, brakes, clunky gearboxes and that could rattle fillings loose come to

But how did people come to associate unfavorable qualities with Guzzi? Because they’re Moto Guzzis have been saddled with peculiarities that their chalk up to character while the of the world brands them as

But what happens to that mental picture when you of a Moto Guzzi fitted upside-down White Power dual 320mm floating rotors, Marchesini alloy four-piston Brembo brake a Bitubo steering damper, Power monoshock rear, fuel injection and sticky Dragon tires?Kind of blows your preconceptions, doesn’t it? its impressive spec sheet and charisma, Moto Guzzi’s Sport may just blow a lot of people away too.

Our gorgeous red Sport was awaiting us at J. Caparros in Barcelona (141 Street, Barcelona, Spain), its beautifully sculpted fairing and silhouette drew a crowd of onlookers. Immediately noticeable was the low and sporty tail section invited some serious riding. Other highlights an oil cooler mounted at the engine’s edge, a welcome addition to the the big air-cooled mill.

Also to the bike’s sporting focus are instruments that include tach and speedometer.

But what makes the 1100 significant over other models isn’t what are fitted, but which aren’t. integrated braking system has left out on the Sport model, riders total control that operation. For the expert to which this machine is that extra control is

Weber-Marelli fuel injection is to fuel Guzzi’s big 1064cc and it provides easy starting and acceleration. As expected, power as soon as the tach needle its stop and pulls like a all the way to its 8200 rpm redline. Peak is claimed to be a healthy 90 bhp at 7800 but where this engine impresses is in its strong torque

Vibration isn’t bothersome engine revs soar 7000, and by that time doing 200 km/h (125 anyway.

Owners of the 1100 will be grateful for that powerband, because it precludes the for constant gearchanges from the transmission. Shifting through the gears is tiresome and sometimes with its stiff and imprecise

Wind protection at higher is acceptable, although to take of the small fairing you must down low on the tank. Your take some abuse the low clip-ons, which are mounted the triple clamps. For this city riding becomes to be endured, rather than

Although an 1100 Sport may be a in day-to-day commuting, it more makes up for it when the road to long sweeping corners. the Guzzi’s chrome-moly steel frame and long-legged motor for a quick pace. Braking and feedback from the Brembo is awesome, allowing for one-finger

One particular oddity plagues Guzzis is their to rise and fall mid-corner in to throttle changes, due to the rotating effect of the crankshaft. For more riders, this isn’t of a problem because they to be smooth on the throttle through but it can still be annoying. Guzzi’s always done this; the significant shaft effect this trait.

Now that Guzzi’s parallelogram has all but eliminated shaft effect, the rolling caused by the crank’s mass can be felt.
