Griso 1200 8V Special Edition


The Moto Guzzi Griso 8V Special Edition (S.E) is aggressively masculine! The “Quattrovalvole engine” features the 90° V-Twin engine layout along with a single overhead camshaft and four valves per cylinder. This engine now produces 110 HP at only 7500 rpm and a 108 Nm at 6400 rpm. With its brute power and technology the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V S.E engine sits like a jewel in the frame as if to highlight the revolutionary design of this distinct Moto Guzzi motorcycle.

Named after the wicked character from one of Italy’s most famous literature pieces ‘I promessi sposi’ by Alessandro Manzoni, the Griso 8V S.E is one of the most unique and captivating motorcycles to ever be produced from the Moto Guzzi factory.

True to its name sake, the Devil is in the detail and the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V S.E delivers with matching red thread double-stitching, racing foot pegs and spoked wheels.

Just like in Alessandro’s writing the Griso 8V S.E is tough, fearless and naturally undertakes all the most daring of situations.
