This coming Moto Guzzi will its 90th anniversary and is already its bushy tail for the event. At del Lario, Guzzi is hard at refurbishing the factory and, importantly, its line of motorcycles. first is on the two models introduced at the EICMA show . the Norge GT 8V and Stelvio NTX maxi-enduro.

Here, concentrate only on the Norge.

One of the steps in the evolution of the Norge GT is the of the 100-horsepower, 1.2-liter, 8-valve of the 90-degree Guzzi V-Twin. engine has received a lot of engineering including efforts to make it more flexible, smoother-running and reliable. The camshafts have a new that Guzzi claims the noise generated by the “cam-in-head” system.

Keeping engine temperature in is an oil radiator that is now more located down in the lip of the lower and cooled further by a thermostatically fan. The engine castings been upgraded, as well, the crankcase reinforced for better and the cylinder fins modified for heat exchange. Moto claims the engine produces 102 hp at rpm and 75.5 foot-pounds of peak at 5500.

Overall, the Norge is more elegant, muscular and effective in of high-speed comfort. The revised windshield offers superior protection, and the heated handgrips are a when the temperature plummets. changes include revised for the Marzocchi 45mm Magnum as well as for the shock fitted to the swingarm.

Due to the massive silencer on the new exhaust and the reduction in mechanical noise the reworked valvetrain, the engine is quieter than before. A new and integrated engine-management system has improved throttle response and delivery through a wider rev the GT 8V is capable of clean, shudder-free from below 2500 rpm in sixth gear.

Riding the Norge on the breathtaking roads above Florence, I discovered that the steering is quicker and more neutral curves than on the previous I would, however, prefer a handlebar in order to get a bit more over the front tire. The design has been honed to perfection: Its ability to offer wind protection for the rider, retaining good aerodynamic allows effortless 90- to 100-mph

Getting it stopped from speeds isn’t an issue, thanks to the mighty braking provided by the Brembo systems.

to the previous-generation model, the $15,990 GT 8V is highly refined; quality is the name of the game at Moto With the Norge, Guzzi has what every company out to accomplish with a sport-touring excellent engine and handling combined with long-range and a reasonable amount of storage.
