2013 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 V8 SE
Style: Sport Touring
Engine: 90° twin, 4-stroke V
Designed to respect a tradition that has lasted forty years, the new engine adopts the rational 90° transverse V twin layout but with 563 new parts, and introduces for the first time a single overhead cam valve timing and silent running Morse chains to operate the four valves per cylinder. 75% of this highly developed Moto Guzzi 1200cc engine has been modified compared to its predecessor, to produce 110 HP at only 7500 rpm and a maximum foot pounds of 80 foot pounds at 6400 rpm.
The motorcycle is built on a high-tensile tubular steel twin cradle frame which is combined with a single-sided aluminium rear swingarm. The frame sits on 43 mm forks which are adjustable for rebound and compression, and there is also a rear fully adjustable monoshock.
At the heart of the Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V SE sits a 1151 cc, four-stroke V 90 twin, engine which generates a maximum power of 110 Hp at 7,500 rpm and 80 Foot Pounds at 6,400 rpm. All this power is kept under control by a six speed gearbox with a single plate clutch.
The stopping power is assured by a capable Brembo braking system which includes front twin floating 320 mm stainless steel wave discs, and rear single 282 mm fixed stainless steel discs.
