It became available last year. It was actually raced in Daytona and won the BoTT. There are still some for sale here in the U.S. and abroad. They are not street legal but some people have added lights and got them registered.

They're the Breva 850 and Griso 850--short-stroke variations of the Breva 1100 and Griso 1100 models.



www.raptorsandrockets.com has some more info.

The only two new models I saw were the Breva and Griso 850. Nothing really new, the Norge was announced a while ago.

I really like the Norge 1200 concept. It should give BMW some healthy competition for the R1200RT. In fact, I like the concept so much I bought www.norge1200.net, www.norge1200.com, and www.norge1200.org dns names. I intend to have blog sites up soon that are dedicated to it so owners can post questions and share ideas. Look for them soon!

Just go for a long ride (get it?) on the Shovel. After that you'll be able to just dump the pile of loose parts in the corners and make room for that Griso.

I really like the Griso too, but I wish that the folks a MG had put the four valve engine in it like they had in the prototype. Even better would be a street legal version of the 1225cc engine found in the MGS 01.
