Moto-Guzzi 1100 GRISO 2009

First a style study, the surprising Griso has so excited the public that the Mandello brand is thinking very seriously about its marketing. We are not very far from the street-bike but with the presence and the imposing typical Guzzi. This big roadster, which some see as the successor to the Centauro, is cut all in muscle.

The plastic gives pride of place to the engine as well as to the impressive single-sided arm. The one that already equips the 1100 Breva. A beautiful inverted fork, jars (brake and clutch fluid) and a sport dashboard, large exhaust pipes – the beast immediately sets the mood. Originality should go hand in hand with this big roadster which is already shaping up to be surprising.

Even before praising or torching the behavior of Griso, it is essential to underline and especially applaud the talent of the directors who followed that of the designers. Beautiful when it was born as a concept bike, it has managed to remain fascinating, sculptural, majestic … just like at its beginnings, despite the obligations of mass production. Is this the essential? Yes and no. We expect of course a motorcycle, whether it is beautiful or less, to ensure its services. But the leitmotif is above all to have fun – and the Griso manages to provide you with just its presence. Like a work that is exhibited.

Yes, well, it’s very nice, but when do we ride? No question of letting her sleep in the living room. A motorcycle is not just for the eyes; it must take an angle and control the bitumen. So, in the saddle! First step, familiarize yourself with the driving position. Not easy, because the wide seat and the frame tubes spread your legs while the hands go to seek the handlebars. A typical position on a typical roadster – not bad for the look, even if it means sacrificing a little comfort. Oh, don’t think you’re going to have to tame a virulent thoroughbred like a Ducati S4R or a Benelli TnT. The ardor of the Griso is especially in its very charismatic aspect. Open to driving pleasure and creamy pleasure, it rides with the breath of the big transverse twin 1100. A long and tempting series of laces causes itching in your nervous system? Go ahead, the Guzzi will not deprive you of it. The generous ground clearance, the neutrality of the front axle and the response of the brakes accompany you in your infatuation. By forcing, one will notice a weakness of the front axle in the curves swallowed at strong speed. This does not come from the damping, which is firmer than on the Breva cousin, but from the weight which is carried more on the rear. But will you be spending your time riding the Griso like you would push a Hypersport? No, you prefer to show it on the terrace of your favorite café. As you get there, you will think that she could steer better than that. Once parked, enjoy an Italian coffee and don’t stop smiling at the sight of passers-by in awe of your Griso.
