Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V India

The Moto Guzzi India dealer based out of Gurgaon has announced on their Facebook Page that the booking for the Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V have begun. The Griso 1200 8V is designed to create a new, more intense concept of sports riding based on sheer power and four valve cylinder technology. Designed to respect a tradition that has lasted forty years, the new engine adopts the rational 90° transverse V twin layout but with 563 new parts, and introduces for the first time a single overhead cam valve timing and silent running Morse chains to operate the four valves per cylinder. 75% of this highly developed Moto Guzzi 1200cc engine has been modified compared to its predecessor, to produce 110 HP at only 7500 RPM and a maximum foot pounds of 108.4 Nm at 6400 RPM. Moto Guzzi have priced the Griso at Rs 13.7L for India. Check out the detailed specifications and more photographs below.
