While we are on the subject of custom nakeds created around iconic twin cylinder engines (see today’s earlier article on the BMW Concept Roadster), we present here the Scighera from the noted Italian Guzzi dealer Millepercento.
Millepercento already makes two other limited production Guzzi derivatives, the Alba and BB1, and the Scighera shows a similar level of effort and refinement.
With the 1151 cc motor from the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V, the Scighera benefits from Piaggio’s refinement of this iconic lump, including fuel injection, six-speed transmission and four-valve heads.
Millepercento strips the Scighera down to the essence of a naked, claiming a dry weight under 420 pounds. In addition to the custom frame, many custom parts adorn the machine, including gorgeous 24-spoke aluminum wheels that allow mounting of tubeless tires. Brembo brakes and Ohlins suspension join the party.
Like it has with its other specials, Millepercento plans to sell the Scighera out of its Italian dealerships. Expected availability is next year at a price approaching 30,000 Euro.
