...these new Guzzi models will arrive in the USA.



But don't hold your breath. The Guzzi dealer near me still has not received ANY version of the Griso, which Guzzi started previewing, what, five years ago?

Thanks jess. The 940 to me looks like an Italian Sportster (better looking of course than the HD). I love the Griso. Nice and classy..

We have several Griso 1100's at the Guzzi dealer I work at. Availability is not a problem. TEST RIDE ONE. It will change your thoughts on Guzzi forever.

I see a new Griso in my future. The new one looks fantastic! Gotta go ride one soon.

They are everywhere, all over the states! I think you need to find a new dealer that actually ordered a Griso.

Somebody please tell these Guzzi guys that nowadays 1100 cc is a nice newbie starter bike for the first two months. And quick before they embarras themselves any further.

My local Ducati/Triumph/MV/MG/KTM dealer has had at least one Griso on the floor for months. And I must say, it's rather nice.

Default The 940 is

...really pretty. A sort-of-cruiser bike that I could own (actually, it's probably really closer to a standard). And I bet it handles pretty well, too.

Fact 1- They are built better than ever. Fact 2- Better than ever for Guzzi is still not as good as mAny other bikes made. Fact 3- Piaggio screwed up the parts distribution when they moved from Woodstock, GA to NY. Fact 4- You can't get warranty work done because (look at fact 3) dealers never know when sh*t will show up. But in every other way they are better than ever.

Yeah I'm kinda hot for one too. I love the simple elegance of air-cooled motors. I gotta wait for the Hypermotard to come out and then head down to GP in San Diego with your wallet.
