The Moto Guzzi Griso SE features a bold character which is underlined by its aggressive design language. We especially like the new black/silver color concept in a matte tone that flows elegantly with the numerous black painted metal elements such as the frame, wheels, steering plates, handlebar and instrument panel covers.
The motorcycle is powered by a modern 90° transverse V twin engine which is based on a traditional layout but with 563 new parts. 75% of the 1200cc engine has been modified compared to its predecessor, to produce 110 HP at only 7500 rpm and a torque of 80 foot pounds at 6400 rpm. The engine is mated on a smooth six speed gearbox which keeps you in complete control at any time.
Talking about control, the stopping power is assured by front twin floating 320 mm stainless steel wave discs with Brembo radial calipers and rear single 282 mm fixed stainless steel discs with floating calipers.

The Griso was the first of the new breed of Guzzis to sport the 1151cc, four-valve-per-cylinder V-twin – the unit replacing the older 1064cc two-valves-per-cylinder unit in the first launching in an eight-valve format towards the end of 2007. The engine is combined with a hydraulic clutch, electronic fuel injection, six-speed gearbox and shaft final drive.
Apart from its capable engine, the strong frame and the sporty wheels the Griso 1200 is also packed with a pretty capable suspension which consist of an inverted 43mm fork and a rear monoshock which are adjustable both front and rear.
The motorcycle is kept under control by a pretty capable braking package composed of twin 320mm wave discs up front gripped by four-piston, radial-mount Brembo calipers backed up by a twin-piston Brembo caliper/282mm disc down the back.
The Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V is available in the either black or white and has a starting price of $23,990 plus ORC.

The Moto Guzzi Griso is now offered with a wide range of accessories which will help you personalize it more than ever. Apart from its new accessories, the motorcycle features an imposing frame which lets you see the engine clear. The clearly visible frame and the generous fuel tank combine to offer a pretty unique design.
The bike it’s not only good looking, but is also pretty comfortable to ride. The saddle and handle bar were carefully designed to keep the rider comfortable and you’ll also like the modern instrument panel which is easy to read.

Moto Guzzi launched a special edition of its iconic Griso 8V model. The new model stands out from the crowd thanks to its new color schemes namely the Tenni Green and Rosso Mandello red, both combined with a blacked-out powertrain. We also need to send a shout at the chromed, anodized and satin-finished components, displays and commands which further enhance the unique look of the motorcycle.
Power comes from a V90 four-stroke engine, capable of 110 hp at only 7,500 rpm. The engine has a tubular twin cradle chassis in a larger format, with a wheelbase of 1,554 mm, rake of 108 mm, and steering rake and angle at 26.30° and 34° respectively.
The rider is met by the ergonomic saddle and the handy handlebar which received a few tweaks to offer a more comfortable riding position. The ride quality is assured by a sporty suspension setup which is adjustable at both ends, thus allowing for a firmer or plusher ride if desired.

At first it might look like a tuner got its hands on the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V and raised the stakes in stylish naked motorcycles, but the fact is that the author of this gorgeous special edition model is the Italian manufacturer itself. The changes are simply too subtle: new Tenni Green or Rosso Mandello Red color schemes with a blacked-out powertrain, a stitched leather seat and spoked wheels featuring tubular tires.
In the engine department, revised cam profiles and fuel injectors as well as a larger airbox increase torque from 80 to 85 lb-ft, while the 1,151cc transverse v-twin still can’t brag about developing more than 110 hp. This sure sounds like poor performance for the average sportbike rider, but we will have to say that the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE doesn’t meet the full requirements to be a roadster, heading fast towards the performance cruiser category in its own Italian way.

Fillippo Barbacane’s Guzzi Diamante is actually a seriously modified Griso 8V
(although nobody can really tell) limited edition motorcycle. In fact, this bike looks so…different that I must say it is like nothing I’ve seen before. That is most likely because nobody before thought at mounting a reinforced Gilera CX125 front end to a veritable motorcycle. Also, the gas tank has been repositioned under the custom rear subframe and a huge airbox with a top-mounted intake took its place. More air is directed to the now 140bhp, 1420cc engine thanks to the faceted bodywork. We love the wheels and pretty much this entire bike, but not the fact that only 30 of these will be made.
An amazing Italian ride that remains true to its maker’s style and heritage, the 2009 Moto Guzzi Griso 1100 enters the scene as a naked, a power cruiser and even a techno-custom. The immediate visual impact taking place when facing this creation will definitely be sustained by a dream-like riding feel, so we know what to expect.
“….His power was increased both by the fact itself and in public opinion”.
The power of the eagle. The Griso 8 V is the outcome of some of the most challenging work carried out by Moto Guzzi for its new generation machines.
