Moto Guzzi V11 Ballabio

A Classic Italian Motorcycle

motorcyclists are looking for an Italian to a four cylinder sports and no bike is more Italian a big V-twin Moto Guzzi.

Guzzi offers three of machine the new 750cc Breva the 1100cc California cruisers and the V11 bikes. The latest incarnation of the is the V11 Café Sport, a real machine, which is fitted Ohlins gold finished forks, bronze fuel and seriously sporty looking black carbon fibre

Pressing the electric starter a rorty big twin bark our test machine, which was with the Moto Guzzi ‘silencers’. These take an hour to fit and come with a ignition box that re-tunes the fuel injection. They weight and produce more and torque, as well as a wonderful

Power delivery is super and I got well over 40mpg, some very hard

The 6-speed gearbox is an improvement on the 5-speed one and is well matched to the power of the big twin. Selecting is particularly smooth and silent to many other bikes and it have you checking that actually gone into it’s so quiet. If you’re to the frantic activity your foot is normally involved in on a capacity four cylinder the Guzzi will surprise you a less hectic, but equally ride.

Pulling this big down from high is surprisingly easy. This is down to the front brakes high spec four Brembo calipers holding twin 320mm stainless discs. I have to admit to not the back brake a lot, riding a motorbike, but the Guzzi did work well on the few occasions I remembered to use it.

Certainly, it didn’t lock up the wheel easily, which is all I ask of a rear brake on a bike.


The Café Sport nearly a thousand pounds than the standard V11 ‘Ballabio’ and this is mostly down to the top gold finished, 43mm upside-down front forks and monoshock rear suspension, all of are fully adjustable for spring compression and rebound damping. this lot off, is the high Ohlins steering damper, so if you find a suspension setting to you, you’re not trying enough.

If they’re not careful, Café owners could find having more fun with settings than riding. I a combination of firm compression and a less rebound damping me, although I cranked up the settings a to compensate for my pillion passenger.

Moto Guzzi V11 Ballabio

In with the streetbike style, has fitted the Café Sport and with higher ‘straight’ rather than the usual V11 model clip-ons. The handlebars are in gold on the Café Sport and on the Ballabio. They do look and they make the bike controllable in traffic and are certainly comfortable, being easier on the and wrists.

The Moto Guzzi’s bikini fairing, although quite suits the handlebar position and is up to 90 plus, although taller may have to crouch down a bit at speeds.

The Café Sport is not a machine and riders looking for should look elsewhere. in real world riding for on twisty A or B roads in the hands of a quick rider, this will stay with of faster machines and with Titanium ‘silencers’ fitted, always know you’re The throttle response is quick, the and torque are always available and the brakes are well up to the job.

It all adds up to one of the best rides Moto Guzzi has produced in a time. If you’re looking for a fun and ride, from a bike different enough to draw wherever it goes, with an streetbike riding position, comfortable over a reasonable at speed, as well as in town and an exhaust note that has you the throttle on and off, just to it, I suggest you try one of these classic
