Default Re: New Guzzi Models

So how many Guzzi's do you own?



I have an 03 LeMans. Second owner. Two things needed warranty work last year. My local dealer (80 miles away) ordered both things in with the bike back to me in less than a week. I wasn't even thinking the bike was under warranty. but he did. Ordered the parts and did a real good job for me. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Guzzi. The Griso and 1100 Breva are on my short list for the next bike.

Ride one first Longride, I sat on one at the bike show last year and was surprised how high the pegs were. For the vertically challenged like Buz it would be fine, but normal size fellers like us it might be an issue.



I think an R1200RT is next on the list for me, one of my buds just got an '07 that's pretty sharp, make a nice winter bike.

I am the Bus Mgr at an Atl Guzzi dealer. Ask ANY parts person or tech in this shop and they will tell you the exact same thing as I stated. I'm not dogging the bikes. I like them alot. But if you can't get parts and the bike just sits wouldn't that frustrate you? Does us.

The Griso 8 valve is an air cooled 1200 and delivers about 108 hp at the crank.



BMW R 1200 S is an air/oil cooled and delivers about 122 hp at the crank



The new 1100 air cooled twins from Ducati deliver about 95 hp at the crank



Buell XB12R is an air/oil cooled 1200 and delivers 103 hp at the crank

Latest reports from "actual" customers are that parts are getting through fine now. Piaggio seems to have listened and is fixing the problem.

If you look at how efficent Ducati and Triumph are at delivery Guzzi still lags behind by weeks in most cases. It's not right that a customer should have to wait for that long. Now, maybe it's because we were so spoiled when they were based in Woodstock. But then again, most of our Ducati parts come through NY or Long Beach and they still get here faster in some cases- even when Guzzi was based here. Could just be a Georgia thing. There are only two Guzzi dealers in the state and we may now be the red-headed step-child of delivery now.

So is the Griso 1100 different than the Griso 8V?
