Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE Overview

Moto Guzzi has built up a reputation for itself as a bespoke motorcycle manufacturer over the years. Well known globally for producing some iconic bikes, the marque is all set to expand its footprint in India courtesy Piaggio of which it is a subsidiary. Well known for its transverse V-twin layouts, Moto Guzzi offers the Griso 8V SE as a lean mean sporty machine. As a bold statement Moto Guzzi has given this new bike a very sleek & swoopy sport oriented look that makes the bike stand out from the others in its range. We take a look at it to know more about this fabulous machine that has aspirations of gripping the Indian rider's psyche.

Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE Engine & Transmission

The transversely mounted V-twin engine has been a Moto Guzzi specific engine configuration. Over the years,all the Moto Guzzis produced have had this distinctive layout making it easy to spot a Guzzi a mile away. The signature throb and rocking motions the engine makes between your knees are a surefire way to get your heart racing. Powered by an 1151 cc 90 degree transversely mounted air/oil cooled V twin, the engine is a work of art. It boasts 4 valves per cylinder thus leading to the 8V nomenclature. The engine itself is tuned for oodles of creamy torque. With a compression ratio of 11:1 and bore X stroke dimensions of 95 X 81.2 mm the electronically fuel injected beast of an engine manages to crank out peak power of 110 Bhp @ 7,500 rpm and peak torque of 108 mm @ 6,400 rpm. Mighty impressive numbers these are and when you crank up the bike, the longitudinal crank layout makes the bike pull slightly to the right- classic Moto Guzzi indeed. Mated to the grunty engine is a six speed transmission with a hydraulic clutch that can be a bit overwhelming at low revs but becoming progressively lighter as the revs build up. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a shaft drive as opposed to chain drive. Special mention must be made of the shaft drive since it benefits from Moto Guzzi's C.A.R.C. - compact reactive cardan shaft transmission that aids in acceleration and skip free power transfer.

Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE Mileage

Fuel economy is important as always is important although on a bike as lovely as this one might want to overlook that fact. With a 23 litre fuel tank the Moto Guzzi returns around 15 kmpl in the city and 18 kmpl on the highways giving you an overall range of around 350-370 km in all.

Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE Performance and Handling

The Griso 8V SE is a lighter bike than its heavier sibling- the 8V Sport. Weighing in at a comparatively light 222 kgs of dry weight and making the slightly more power than the Sport, this bike screams pure muscle. On the move however it manages to flick from side to side like a nimble footed athlete. This is courtesy the wonderful suspension setup and the really sticky rubber the Griso 8V SE comes equipped with. The twin cradle steel frame has exceptional rigidity giving the bike superb handling characteristics. It needs all that rigidity because the engine is quite grunty and acceleration is awe inducing. The shaft drive transfers power to the rear wheel quite well and keeps the power coming. The wide and upright handlebars also help maintain an optimal stance for tackling the twisties quite well. The front forks are 43 mm inverted forks and are fully adjustable or preload, rebound and damping. Coupled with the rear 3 way adjustable suspension the overall package is very dynamic and instant fun on 2 wheels. The braking department is taken care of by the radially mounted twin 320 mm Brembo disc and four pot calliper setup with the rear brakes being handled by a single 298 mm disc with a twin pot setup. ABS is available as an optional extra but it's recommended that it be purchased. All in all the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE makes a compelling case as a naked sports bike suggesting outright hooliganism.

The Griso range of Guzzi has been pretty famous over the years, but I feel like with the launch of the Griso 8V SE, Guzzi has hit a jackpot.
