2008 Moto Guzzi Griso

2008 Moto Guzzi Griso 1100


The 2008 Moto Guzzi Griso brings back two favorites in the 850 and 1100 versions, but also introduces the powerful 1200 8V model to the family. The 1200cc version of the characteristic V-Twin brings the slickest model yet, and the outcome is the 2008 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V.

The three variations of the 2008 Moto Guzzi Griso give riders distinct choices depending on their riding preferences. Each of the 850, 1100 and 8V models gives riders a powerful motorcycle that is surprisingly easy to handle. Despite the power of each engine, the Griso is not as heavy as it appears, giving riders a bike that isn’t too heavy to maneuver. The Griso 850 and the 1100 are alike, with the only variances being the shorter stroke, less power and torque.

The 2008 Moto Guzzi Griso is a standard style motorcycle and essentially was carryover for this year. The engine is paired with a manual transmission and a total fuel capacity of 4.5 gallons. The Griso has aluminum wheels and the front suspension is an inverted fork while the rear suspension is a single sided swing arm. The added safety provided with front dual disc brakes and rear disc brakes give strong stopping power in even tough conditions. Each of the 2008 Moto Guzzi Griso models come with a standard one-piece, two-passenger seat that proves riders with a comfortable ride.
