Private Preview 2006: Naked With an Attitude

Powerfully aggressive, yet elegant and compact, the 2006 Moto Guzzi Griso is a naked bike that masters Italy’s twisting mountain roads and sharp highways. This café-racer–with-an-attitude delivers an exhilarating and precise ride through the most technical turns and on the fastest straights. Its up-to-the-minute technology includes a  “reactive” drive shaft that transmits power from a muscular 1,064 cc V-twin nourished by electronic fuel injection. The Griso’s chassis components enhance its striking looks and performance. A robust 43 mm upside-down fork is adjustable in spring preload, hydraulic compression and rebound damping, and rising rate linkages coupled to fully adjustable monoshock damp the rear wheel. The elegant Brembo brakes not only provide visual appeal but pack aggressive stopping punch: There are two 320 mm floating stainless steel rotors and calipers with four opposed pistons on the front wheel and a floating caliper with parallel pistons at the rear. A beautifully shaped tank and chromed exhaust collectors add to the Griso’s stylish appearance. It is available in black or red and sells for $12,990.
