Guzzi V11 Sport

Oi you lot! Yes The bunch of people shuffling off you’ve seen Moto in the thread title. Back Now.

I need to qualify piece before I say anything

I’m not a rampant Guzzi-phile, I do have friends who are.

Now we have that over I can I’m not one to turn down a ride. Especially on something I’ve wanted to try VERY just to see if Leon Moss’ who made his own Dyno in the ’70s and in with John Robinson, editor of Performance Bikes introduced us all to the Dyno Chart.) old of, The only reason I could of wanting to own a Moto Guzzi was if I a mooring for a boat, still true.

It doesn’t. Not by a long My previous Guzzi riding is limited to a recent 750 Breva and a V50 fell to bits when the wheel was hoiked off the ground.

As as it is to watch the front end falling out of a before the rider has reached like a balance point, it is NOT FUNNY if you’re the pilot.

I have been around who have experienced the joy of Mk5 Le Mans (I followed one around Manfield and was astounded to see it shaking its head in a line, violently enough to body work fall V65 Lario pwnership (sic, and which involved a direct to the Director’s desk — in thanks to the V65’s propensity for on a regular basis, and Paul in fantastic Mk2, which been out much lately. has also chased me around the of the Wairarapa on his glorious Nero so I am aware of the highs and lows can be generated by the proud and faintly (kinky?) Moto Guzzi

Looking at a V11 from side-on it look long low and fat, and the rear positively enormous. in a robustly healthy phase invest in a V11 as an arse shrinking accessory. Sit on it though and all you can see is the front of the which looks mighty that spine frame it meets the headstock, and the bars and

Those cylinder heads do not out anything like as much as you expect and an average sized only bangs their on one if they don’t stick knee out a bit when shifting weight around. Eh Jim. My that hurt!

I could we were going to get on OK on the way down brilliant hairpins. It holds a really well and and steers The Brembo’s up front are amazing, in feel and power and Strong.

The the throttle and having it move to the It’s not a problem people. Put any of the torque reaction from the crank meaning you have to your riding style to out of your mind. The shaft is one of the least problematic it has been my to experience.

Progress can be a bit lurchy to carry low revs in town, but you can try another gear to get around

The Breva 750 evokes a Girly response from most Girls from Boudicca to Rice have proved being Girly isn’t in detrimental when kicking The V11 probably looks and feels manly and certainly requires a bit of to ride, but personally I prefer and heavy to twitchy and minuscule.

how much shove relates to how lean angle comes naturally and as my confidence rose I thought was going to be hard in the twisties over the Rimutakas and out Lake Wairarapa to Lake wasn’t. One discovered a bike liked to flow through little braking required at a measured pace, but overall quick enough to keep the parts of my brain entertained.

It does NOT feel like a 50 old military tractor engine, that is supposed to feel. The injection is a little abrupt off a throttle, but so is a 2004 Yamaha R6.

Fast direction changes conscious counter steering and shifting of body weight, but a manly feeling to throw bike from side to

The V-11 talks loudly and communicating like an Italian demanding grandchildren. Bars on corner exits, the torque as you blip the throttle going through the gears reminds you to revs and road speed the brakes reassure you that you can just about any problem and the whole bike moves than its mass would

You read bad press about Guzzi often enough and buy into the line that Guzzis are irrelevant old-tech of Italian tradition. Total I haven’t enjoyed the challenge of a big sporty GT style of bike as much as I did the V11, ever.

That’s big A V11 both meets and exceeds expectations of a Guzzi. The good I mean, not the bad stuff, Ok?

Thank you Mr Mrs for the opportunity to play with a motorcycle. Distinctive, characterful, and sporty.

It is all good. Except for the rear tyre. Good you two have gone away to the in your car and don’t need the Gosh darn it!

I hope you had a Merry Christmas and that Santa delivered as I hope this little review might open eyes to possibilities for the New Year, riding bikes just the ones your mates doesn’t have to be the only
