Moto Guzzi Open link in a new window always has a good and loyal following due to their stylish and timeless motorcycles. The newly announced Griso 8 V is no exception. When unveiled at the EICMA Open link in a new window motorcycle exhibition in Milan, Italy, there were a lot of "ohhhh" and "ahhhhh"s and applause.

Here is what Moto Guzzi has to say about the Griso 8V (press release)


The power of the eagle

Moto Guzzi Griso 8V
The Griso 8 V is the outcome of some of the most challenging work carried out by Moto Guzzi for its new generation machines. With its graceful lines, the Griso 8 V has opened the way to a new, absolute sense of “sports” that is created by the power and technology of the innovative engine.

Although designed along traditional lines, the new engine is a celebration of the logic behind the 90 degree V concept. It features a single overhead camshaft that operates the four valves on each cylinder with noiseless timing chains. This is quite an evolution to the already tuned 1200 cc engine that now puts out 110 CV at 9,500 rpm with maximum torque of 11 kgm.

The power delivery is silky smooth and on the open road the bike’s true sports character shines along with the countless technical innovations and the new sense of style.

Although the exclusive exhaust system with twin coiled pipes has been seen before, it now truly reflects the greater power of these machines.

From the looks point of view, the Griso 8 V has undergone customizing that includes particular stylistic details like the new saddle and streamlined side panels as well as equipment levels of the highest possible level.

Even the most discerning of palates will appreciate the front end with its Brembo P4/34 radial caliper brakes that act on wave floating discs measuring Ø 320 mm.

They will also be able to count on Showa upside-down forks that have had 43 layers of carbon nitride treatment.

Sitting astride the bike, the rider can immediately sense the sports riding position that the new setup between handlebars, saddle and footpegs provides.

These are all new components and were specially designed to make the rider feel completely in control. The two-seater saddle creates a wonderful backwards view and there seems to be a tail like on a single seater. In fact there is in fact more than enough room for a passenger to sit in great comfort.

Powerful, elegant and exclusive, the Griso 8V will beyond doubt become a cult item among true enthusiasts of elite motorbikes.
