Moto Guzzi MGS-01 Corsa

This year (November 2008), Moto Guzzi will play four aces at the 66th Milan motorbike show in a winning hand drawn from one of the widest ranges of machinery in the sector. They will begin with the Special Edition Griso 8V SE that stands out with its magnificent “Tenni” colour scheme where shades of satinised green contrast beautifully with the lower section of the bike that is dominated by the black of the engine, suspension, frame and wheels.

The spoked wheels are fitted with versatile Pirelli Scorpion tubeless tyres. This combination gives the Guzzi naked a scrambler image that is added to by the leather saddle and logos on the tank and tail cone. This sophisticated naked is more than capable of setting the pulse racing whether just standing still or whether the 90° twin cylinder “Quattrovalvole” 1200cc engine is at full song.

This Griso will be on the road in Europe from March 2009. The Stelvio 1200 TT will make its debut with the same engine but with new horizons and adventure in mind. This much loved Maxi Enduro will come with a special pack of accessories for long-distance touring that will also be available as optional extras for those already lucky enough to own a Moto Guzzi Maxi Enduro. The extras include a sump shield, engine protectors, aluminium panniers, cylinder protection bars, CA.R.C. transmission protectors, integral hand guards, additional headlights and, for riders wanting to go off-road, an additional set of knobbly tyres with a 150/70 R17 rear tyre fitted to a 4.25” rim.

In response to huge demand, the Stelvio is now available with Brembo ABS brakes, while the TT pack version and its new magnesium twin colour scheme will be available from February 2009. Other new items include the new 750cc small-block engines with the debut of the new V7 Café Classic and the Nevada 750 that has enjoyed extensive restyling. Inspired by the legendary V7 Sport from 1972, the V7 Café Classic has the same streamlined style that, in the early 70s, marked the birth of the Italian sports Maxi.

Other components that are symbols of a different era complete the picture like the low-set, clip-on handlebars, the spoked wheels, the raised silencers and the saddle with its integrated tail cone, the instruments resemble the famed white-faced Veglia Borletti ones from the past and the new green colour scheme. Technically speaking, the V7 Café Classic differs from its Tourer sister in having twin raised silencers that, apart from increasing ground clearance, provide a sportier exhaust note more suited to this model.

The Café Classic will be available in Italy from February 2009. The Company has made a few technical and design changes to the appearance of the Nevada 750, a classic custom machine that now bears more resemblance to the legendary California, Moto Guzzi’s undisputed flagship. One of these changes is the new burgundy colour scheme with silver pin striped tank just like the one on the California Classic. The exhaust system and digital analogue instruments are also new and both derive from the V7 Classic.

The Nevada will be available in Italy from February 2009 whereas the new 1200 SPORT 4V is already available from our dealerships following its launch last month at the INTERMOT show in Cologne. With its new graphics painting a picture of elegance and sophistication, the exclusive look and technical specifications of the new Moto Guzzi promise performance. The first thing you will notice is the design as you look back along the panels and note the clear rear lamp cluster and the new exhaust. This system now features an aluminium silencer with a triangular base below the “over and under” finned exhaust pipes that symbolise Moto Guzzi power and innovation.

The throbbing heart of the 1200 SPORT 4V is the new “Quattrovalvole” (four valve) engine that, thanks to its unmistakeable transverse V90 architecture, cannot fail but to catch the eye. As the latest form of the engine that was fitted to the Griso and Stelvio, the “Quattrovalvole” on the 1200 SPORT 4V differs in its intake and exhaust system. These components were developed to offer better engine response at medium to high revs and to match the sporting character of the bike. The engine puts out over 105CV at 7500 rpm with 110Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. The engine also acts as a load-bearing component of the tubular twin cradle frame.

The frame itself is made of high resistance steel that provides solidity and rigidity. In true Moto Guzzi tradition, only the best brakes and suspension systems are used: Brembo gold series brakes and Marzocchi forks grace the front end. The brakes have radial mounted four-piston calipers acting on 320 mm discs while the forks are a traditional 45 mm unit. The comfortable, excellent riding position along with the forward position of the handlebars give the rider complete control and allow him to concentrate on enjoying the ride. The 1200 SPORT 4V is now available in the classic black or in the original titanium grey colour scheme. Both these schemes perfectly offset the white racing number plates on the screen and on the saddle that is edged with a subtle green, white and red stripe that celebrates the bike’s Italian heritage.
