A Corsa Corta Module For Your Bellagio – Aquila Nera 940

In 2006, the Euro3 emission standards were imposed on motorcycle manufacturers. Moto Guzzi were fully ready for that, and The Breva 1100 was actually one of the first roadster motorcycle sold in Europe that easily passed those stringent new standards. Unfortunately, part of this involved weakening the fuel mixture, effectively causing erratic low speed performance with surging and poor response up to about 40% fully open throttle on most bikes.

As you are aware, air cooled engines are sensitive to running hot, particularly with a lean fuel mixture, and detonation (pinking) can become an added nuisance, particularly when commuting in city traffic. Unlike carburated bikes that could be easily adjusted to solve this type of problem, there was no way of improving the fuel injection without expert help.

Now we have this rugged and weatherproof plug-in module that you can easily fit within 10 to 20 minutes, to gain a noticeable improvement from the moment you begin to ride.

Every rider appreciates the pleasure of riding a well set up bike without spending high cash outlay on expensive dyno tuning or main dealer workshop bills. This is one of the best and most economical accessories available to help achieve that aim, and they are made in England to British Standards Quality. They are a Road Legal modification and the standard fuel map still meets fuel economy and emissions regulations demanded by EU3 legislation. The design has been developed and improved using actual road and dyno tests with additional data provided by customer feedback to build these modues for all popular models of Moto Guzzi Motorcycles

Read this recent testimonial from a Bellagio customer:

Standard Moto Guzzi Bellagio fitted with the Corsa Corta Module.posted by Mr. R.W. Surry UK

Finbau Forge loaned me Corsa Corta O2 optimiser to try after being a bit sceptical that it would make any difference to a standard Bellagio. So, today I fitted it and gave it a whirl. My bike is a 2008 Bellagio, 13500 miles, serviced at 12500 miles and Iridium plugs fitted, other than that completely standard.


Dead simple, remove the starter motor cover undo the tie wrap that holds the 02 sensor and disconnect. Plug in the optimiser and tuck it behind the starter solenoid. Hold it in place with some new tie wraps and make sure the leads are away from the gear change linkage.

Total time about 10 minutes.

I live in Woking on the edge of the South Downs or Surrey Hills as it is known. Temperature today was hot and it was showing 30 degrees on the display. I took the bike down the local straight and gave it a fast blast up to 70mph.

I did not notice much difference in the top end and acceleration.

Next I went around the Pirbright bends. The Pirbright bends are about 5 miles of hilly twisty roads. One bend is a sharp left hander that goes up hill. This is where I did notice the difference.

Going around the bend the throttle is almost shut then you have to open the throttle to get up the hill. Unless you are in a very low gear, this part was always a bit snatchy with the bike leant over, but the roll on up the hill was very smooth and going around the bends it was the roll on that made the difference.

A couple of laps at different speeds it was the smoothness at opening the throttle at the end of the bend that was impressive. Why did I notice this? Well I found the bike before a bit jerky at low revs and I thought the throttle bodies were out of balance.

On to the continuing road test! After the bends it was a trip along the Hogs back and A3 down to Newlands Corner on top of the Downs. Now bimbling along in 6th gear at 55 the bike was running fine and relaxed. I soon caught up with the car in front and was deciding whether to change down or gently open it up in 6th to overtake.

Chose to overtake in 6th and the bike just pulled with no lugging.

Then on the way home there is a 40mph stretch with some speed cameras so I was bimbling along when I could not remember what gear I was in but the throttle was almost closed. Found that I was in 6th and the bike was pottering along quite happily. If you open the throttle gently the bike just pulls smoothly.

Total miles covered 67.

The great thing with the Bellagio is that it is a short stroke motor that likes to rev and some of the fun in owning a Bellagio is to use the upper rev range, however with the Corsa Corta Bellagio optimiser the lower rev range is just so much smoother giving the best of both worlds, a bike that is very tractable below 4000 rpm and still flies above that, plus it does give you a few extra HP and some more torque with just a few easy modifications.
