2011 Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE | Quick Look

2011 Moto Guzzi Motorcycle

One of the most unusual mounts in motorcycling, the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE is part cruiser, part upright sport bike, and all about grabbing attention.

Powered by Moto Guzzi’s beefy eight-valve version of its classic design, the massive header pipes and huge muffler speak to vast quantities of air being pushed through the system.

Exceptionally comfortable to ride, though low-frequency vibrations discourage long rides, the Griso is much more agile than you would expect from a bike that weighs over 500 pounds gassed up.The wide bars give you leverage and lean you forward for an aggressive stance.
