2013 Moto Guzzi Norge GT 8V

Intro

The Italian-made Moto Guzzi Norge sport tourer was first introduced in 2007 and began to turn heads from day one. The standard 70.2 cubic inch engine delivers 102 horsepower and 76.7 pounds of torque in a package that ably handles both long tours and short distances with the precision and comfort that sport touring motorcycles are known for.

For experienced riders seeking the best combination of daily-driver usability and weekend warrior responsiveness, the sport touring category of motorcycles is clearly the place to begin. Typical sport touring motorcycles have a more upright seating position and a practical geometry coupled with responsive and well thought-out engines that deliver low-speed punch and high-speed reliability with sporty handling. It is no surprise that law enforcement motorcycle patrols select sport tourers for their fleet motorcycles; they are quick, comfortable over long distances, designed to carry light cargo, and handle on par with the top sportbikes.

For 2013, Moto Guzzi went back to the drawing board and returned with a highly revamped version of their well-respected Norge. Improved suspension components result in a more accurate cornering line when fully loaded, and for riders with a penchant for personalization, both front and rear suspension are fully adjustable for preload and rebound damping. The engine on the 2013 Norge is a 90-degree V-twin that develops over 100 horsepower in a very linear and predictable manner resulting in a motorcycle that is easy to ride quickly and has extra power on tap when it is needed. Like all modern Moto Guzzis, the Norge has a fully-enclosed shaft final drive, resulting in a drivetrain that is externally clean, protected, and always optimally adjusted.

Many of the other improvements on the 2013 Norge focus on the ergonomics and rider experience, and the redesigned fairing, electronically-adjustable windscreen, standard hard-shell side cases, vibration-reducing footpegs, and heated handgrips show that Moto Guzzi has the long-distance tourer in mind.

Available in Competition black or Sport white, the Moto Guzzi Norge is a top contender for high-mile riders seeking a tireless, reliable motorcycle that delivers performance with comfort and control.
