2008 Moto Guzzi Griso 1100

2008 Moto Guzzi Griso 1100

The sinuous tubes of the frame wrap around the tank - the sides are like forearms pointing straight ahead – the exhaust manifolds coil round the engine. Everything about the Griso is a little strange, a little unsettling maybe – not normal…It is however very like the bike we all imagine or even dream of having The Griso is a masterpiece on wheels. A dynamic work of art that demonstrates sheer Italian creativity crowned by the Moto Guzzi eagle that puts it way beyond any classification. The feelings aroused by its aggressive raw lines get stronger when you climb aboard. The riding position offered by the saddle and wide handlebars mean maximum control and fast changes of direction whether in heavy traffic or on the open road. Thanks to the long wheelbase, the bike is very stable but surprisingly agile due to its wonderful frame. The steel frame is both rigid and reactive. The adjustable suspension adapts to all surfaces and changes in loads.

Constant full-bodied power is supplied by a 90 degree V twin of the latest generation that has been completely updated and meets Euro 3 emission standards. The torque produced by the engine is delivered to the wheels via a silky smooth reactive shaft drive transmission system patented by Moto Guzzi. The sound made by this machine has no comparison. It is a deep throbbing note that comes first out of twin manifolds then on to stainless steel silencers. No matter how many miles flick by on the futuristic mileometer display on the onboard computer, your Griso will never go unnoticed. Its elegant Guzzi Black, Racing Red or new satinised Orange colour schemes make it both elegant and hard to miss.
