2004 Moto Guzzi V11SB

Moto Guzzi V11SB

The Ballabio-Resinelli race has become part of history. A challenge to the last bend which puts the rider's skill and the mechanics of the motorcycle to a hard test. Today it is one of the tests for the Italian Uphill Speed Cup. The V11 Sport Ballabio takes its name from this classic race, because it has all the characteristics it takes to dominate that type of itinerary.

Compact, with great handling, aggressive at low revs and efficient in its mechanics, with Marzocchi front suspension with 43 mm inners and rear suspension with fully adjustable Sachs shock absorber, coupled to a die-cast light alloy cantilever swinging fork swingarm.

The powerful disc brakes, double at the front and single on the rear wheel, allow extreme braking. Available in the ultra-sporting and traditional "Rosso Race, or the refined minimalist "Grigio Resinelli", aggressive with its compact cockpit fairing which deflects turbulence away from the rider's torso, the V11 Sport Ballabio has all it takes to stand out in chaotic city traffic as well, helped by the natural erect riding position, thanks to the raised biconical handlebar. The heart is of course the latest generation legendary 90 V-Twin, even more high performance and silent. The compression ratio (9.8:1) guarantees high performance at medium revs. Modification of the exhaust manifolds and a special crosspiece positioned between the two manifolds benefits low revs. As with all V11s, it is environmentally friendly and is fitted with a highly advanced three-way catalytic converter with Lambda sensor.
