Moto Guzzi Launches Exciting New Griso 8V Special Edition

11th June 2009

Moto Guzzi Launches Exciting New Griso 8V Special EditionMoto Guzzi’s new Griso SE really stands out with its magnificent “Tenni” colour scheme taken from Italian Moto Guzzi racing legend Omobono Tenni, the first Italian ever to win at the Isle of Man TT. This stylish colour combination of satinised green and premium tan leather dual seat, complete with hand crafted stitching, contrasts beautifully with the lower section of the bike, which is dominated by the matt black of the engine, frame and front forks. The Griso SE is the latest version of this charismatic Moto Guzzi model, with unrivalled build quality and character to match. Other points of difference on the SE version of the Griso, are the classy black spoked wheels with anodised alloy rims, fitted with Pirelli Scorpion tubeless tyres for high performance riding.

The Griso is an instinctive creation, as solid as a rock with a distinct personality of its own. Features, details and its unique lines blend the chrome and satin finishes to create a work of art. The fuel tank, for example, forms an aerodynamic teardrop, unique to this bike and guaranteed to get you noticed. Stylish in its own way, the tail houses three high intensity LED light units – adding to safety as well as style.Moto Guzzi Griso 8V Special Edition

But the Griso SE doesn’t just look good – it goes great too. The wide handlebar and low seat height (at only 800mm) mean the streetbike riding position is both aggressive and comfortable, allowing the rider to make full use of the bike’s massive 1151cc 90° V-twin engine. Maximum power of 110 bhp and huge amounts of torque from the new 8-valve engine, mated to a rigid laterally reinforced, high tensile steel chassis, means that the Griso SE will handle anything the rider throws at it. Silky smooth power delivery ensures that riding fast on the open road or battling through heavy traffic, this bike does it all, perfectly.

Confidence inspiring handling is assured, thanks to adjustable 43mm diameter super sports style, upside down front forks, mated with Boge rising rate, rear suspension. The geometry of the bike has been designed for maximum stability and it shows in the refined ride. Moto Guzzi has also managed to keep this bike nimble, with fast changes of direction causing no drama for the rider, who is able to carve perfect lines in the asphalt.

Stopping the Griso SE is no problem either, with massive 320mm wavy front discs being squeezed by the latest 4-piston Brembo radial caliper brakes – good looking as well as very effective.

Accessories include semi-rigid panniers, large and small tank bags, tail bag, luggage rack improving the touring and practical capabilities of this bike. Fly screen and touring windscreen are available for added protection.

Moto Guzzi bike cover in black non-scratch material with the Griso logo in silver on both sides is also available for riders wishing to cosset this special machine.
