After three seasons, the Griso 8V Special Edition changes outfit, leaving behind the commemorative "Tenni" livery for a new look that feels much more�, modern and aggressive, called "Black Devil".

A new colour concept that transmits a greater impact􀁕 to the non-conformist style of Griso with a "matt black" look interrupted by a sharp silver graphic pattern that generates a beam of light extending from the tank to the lateral ducts.

Th􀁆 visual impression 􀁊􀁔 of an overall feeling of greater compactness of the assembly in a picture of great elegance, typical of the special series produced by Mandello del Lario.

Among the details that make it an􀀁 authentic 􀁬custom-built􀁺 are the saddle lining, matching grey thread double-stitching, the attractive spoked wheels with custom channels from Moto Guzzi red, in addition to the above mentioned Black Devil graphic.

Equipped with the modern transverse 90􀂛 V twin engine of the 􀀃Four valve􀀃 series, able to output a maximum power of 110 HP at only 7,500 rpm, the Griso 8V SE gives velvety but powerful road performance, making you appreciate the goodness􀁔 of a chassis capable of keeping that unbridled horsepower under control. On the upper twin spar frame, made of high-strength steel and generously sized lines, where the ribs are not the result of a simple aesthetic suggestion, but are calculated to provide􀁆 exceptionally high levels of torsional rigidity.

The chassis geometry was calculated to provide stabilit􀁚, with a headstock tilted by 26􀂛 for a􀀁 trail of 108 mm, with a wheelbase of 1,544 mm: however, the Griso 8V SE surprisingly manoeuvrable and genuine, even lightning fast when changing direction.

The behaviour of thi􀁔 fascinating naked takes advantage of the low centre of gravity and the rock front end with offset reduced plates, making the response to handlebar pressure immediate and precise. A veritable scalpel on two wheels



The Griso 8V SE Moto Guzzi reconfirms 􀁂 unique and inimitable stylistic idea, where the concept and its realization are expressed without giving in to compromises, technical, historical or cultural limitations. A instinctive bike, pure, solid as a rock, boasting
a forceful personality, where the material seems sculpted with artistic revelation. Metalwork and curvy forms are reflected in the chrome trims and polished finishing to reveal new details on closer inspection. Just look at the fuel tank, that continues the expressive power of the massive frame only to stand out with a striking aerodynamic cap  exquisite beauty.

Or the tail fairing, just mentioned but as incisive as scratch, a scratch given by the three high intensity􀁚 LED of the headlight assembly. A masculine, long and powerful motorcycle, clear and distinguishable from the masses, where the Four valve engine set for magic on a chassis that grabs fro􀁎 above, almost wanting to show off the revolutionized shapes. It is enough to merely glance at the thick fins of the black cylinders, oriented towards the wind, or at the valve covers, to understand the executive care, which reaches its peak in defining the exhaust system. A incredible overlapped twin coiled pipes, which raises the inspiring awe of the new Griso 8V SE to th􀁆 nth degree. And when the focus shifts to the reality of the performance, even the sophisticated components cease to be regarded as mere technical details to acquire a stylistic significance. This is the case of the front end, which is what is expected of a race bike with its oversized, upside-down forks and braking system with radically-mounted callipers.

The visual symphony is completed by the sporty cut of the saddle and side panel unit and the new handlebar, revised to improve the aerodynamics of the rider. Details and intuition that make the Griso 8V SE a motorbike that impresses, before our even ride it.


Just sit astride the Griso 8V SE to figure out how unique it  to ride. Renovated in the conformation of the saddle and side panels and equipped with bucolical sports style handlebars, the new Moto Guzzi welcomes the rider with a spectacular view of chromed, brushed, anodised parts, displays and commands that invite you to lose yourself with one look. Astride the Griso 8V SE, you will be struck by the magnificence  the saddle, just 800mm above the ground and reviewed in the conformation of the sides to facilitate travel in the body ride, while the position of the racing type footrests, 􀁊􀁔 high and slightly behind. A certain sporty riding position, where the rider  part of the motorbike, with legs ready to push on the footrests and with the bust slightly tilted towards the handlebars, now reduced in width and with the end advanced to ensure a perfect lever arm. This position is ideal for tracking, with disarming easy, trajectories of surgical precision, thanks to a front end as precise as a blade and th􀁆 generous tyre sizes. A motorbike for riding hedonists, wrapped in the gritty and unmistakable sound of the new Four valve, which encourages you to face with a decisive air that moss meandering paths as if they were city traffic, sustained b outstanding speed in changing direction and by the rigor of an agile and responsive front end, yet always firmly planted.

This does not mean that the fashion naked of Mandello is not suited to more aggressive riding, indeed, there are the times when the total absence of vibration of the new Four valve, when you can get lost in the seductive style, appreciate the quality of the finish, the softness of controls and the completeness of the instrument panel. Spaces where the rider communicates with his steed, in the velvety command of a motorbike wit􀁉 profound spirit, capable of being
tremendously fast, effective, gentle and comfortable, even when carrying a passenger. But it  true that the magic of the new Griso 8V SE cannot be explained except by exploring the range of the rpm indicator.
