Riding around town or in the countryside need not always be about pure speed thrills. So for those that prefer a change of pace and take their time while basking in the sights, sounds, and smells of the world passing by, the Moto Guzzi Norge GT 8V is the bike for you.
At the heart of the Norge GT 8V is a V-shaped 90° transverse twin-cylinder "Four valve" engine, considered the highest performing engine among all the families of powertrains manufactured at Mandello del Lario. Riding along that impressive powertrain is the Norge’s soft suspension, one that can be adjusted for preload front and rear with the shocks featuring rebound adjustment.
All the improvements done in the development of the bike’s powertrain have also increased the Norge’s overall drive dynamics. The changes in setting of the suspension, such as replacing the spring set on the fork and shock absorber, allow the bike to achieve optimal hydraulic response on the two suspension units. Moreover, the bike also comes with a powerful, new electronic ABS braking system which is combined with front brake discs fitted with a new high performance brake band. This setup provides the kind of safety standards that make riding this bike easy.
