Nice. I still like the Griso though.

It's a Guzzi... it's a monster! Hell, I don't care... it's a sexy beast that looks like pure knee draggin' fun (albeit with a shower of sparks behind you).

Right on, Yossef. Great writeup.



It seems to me, that we are living in the Golden Age of Motorcycling right now - even the "stodgy old Guzzis" have something exciting in the works. Honda is probably the only moto-manufacturer that doesn't really have anything that "catches my eye".



That SUCKS, as I used to be a "Honda Man".

Cool bike but you still can't get parts in the USA without some kind of major voodoo working on your side. Just ask my techs. Everyone loves 'em. Just can't service them.

Oh, my! Hokie Smokes! I love it! But then I'm such a sucker for sweet Guzzis.



I've said these things here before but:

seeing John Wycoff smooth his first gen V-7 Sport thru the old, long gone original ramp from 285 to 400 north years and years ago....and the time I babysat a middle years LeMans for a friend who was doing the Naval Aviator thing in the Persian Gulf for almost a year - with strict instruction to "ride it as much as possible"....and my neighbor & friend up in the Fox 5 monitored N. GA Mts with his late, pre Piaggio era LeMans who has graciously lets me ride it repeatedly (along with his KLR 650)....



Oh, my...everywhere I turn it seems I see a Guzzi. Am I telling myself something?

If they'd put that engine, those pipes, and radial mount front discs on the Griso, I'd be visiting the credit union for a loan tomorrow!



But until then, that is a cool bike. Guzzi is doing some excellent work these days.

Gotta love a bike that has torque characteristics similar to a P-47.
