2008 Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 GT


The 2008 Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 GT is a sport-touring style motorcycle and is a carryover model for 2008. This year’s model is powered by a four-stroke, 1151cc and is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The Norge has a six gallon gas tank which gives riders plenty of fuel to get to destinations without many stops. The 2008 Moto Guzzi Norge does have a heavier base weight that may not be ideal for novice or smaller riders. The heaviness of the motorcycle combined with the powerful engine makes for an ideal open ride by any sport or touring enthusiast.

Introduced in 2006 to retrace the glory of the 1928 Gran Turismo version of the motorcycle, the Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 packs a strong ride and offers a historic feel to its design. However, the 2008 Moto Guzzi Norge 1200 GT also has many modern features like fuel injection and anti-lock brake systems, a real bonus on newer model motorcycles. The ABS means the brakes won't lock up in a pinch, like when skidding through gravel. Instead, the brake systems ease the bike to a stop, which gives riders control over the motorcycle.

Along with this, the 2008 Moto Guzzi Norge also comes with a slew of available accessories for this year’s model. Customize the motorcycle with a choice of graphite black or silver base color and use plenty of available storage choices and a lockable top box kit. Use the optional alarm kit for added security and ensure you get to your destination quickly with the GPS navigational system.
