The Unmistakable Brute Looks Even Tougher

WHO: Moto Guzzi USA

WHAT: 2015 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8v SE

WHERE: Moto Guzzi Dealerships Throughout the USA

WHEN: September 2014

August 28, 2014 – The Moto Guzzi 1200 8v SE is an instinctive and boldly characterized machine – perhaps one of the most beguiling motorcycles in Moto Guzzi’s 93-year history. Its character is expressed in the non-conformist styling, which flows throughout the bike, from the frame and wheels to the steering plates and instrument panel covers, and ultimately through the exhaust – roaring like a P-51 Mustang. With a 1200cc 90° V-twin, fully adjustable suspension, and wide bars, the Griso is a thrill to ride, and an object of envy to look at – so much so, one wouldn’t need to travel so far from Mandello del Lario to find imitation.

The Moto Guzzi Griso is picture of masculinity and power, and with the new 2015 updates the expression is only visualized further. The new Rosso Trophy color conveys two fundamental elements that are at the base of Moto guzzi heritage – elegance and sportiness. Among the detailes that make it an authentic custom-built are the saddle red lining, matching red thread double-stitching, and the ever attractive spoke wheels with custom channels in Moto Guzzi red.

Special Edition Rosso Trophy (Matte) Outfitting:

  • Black chassis
  • New saddle with matching lining
  • Racing Footrests
  • Full black four valve powertrain
  • Black instrument panel covers
  • Spoke wheels

The 2015 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8v SE in the US September 2014, and will carry a MSRP of $12,990.

    Nice looking bike (except the seat doesn’t appear to fit)…..

    but they really need to take some lessons from Harley’s advertising team if they want you to be lured into a dealership by reading the press releases.

      Now that you pointed its seat fitment, you know you’re right. Strange, it looks like it doesn’t fit the form of its tail section and was just placed on the sub-frame. Perhaps it was? Pre-production model?
