1200 SPORT 8V: 105 CV OF CLASS.
STYLISH, SOPHISTICATED AND POWERED BY A NEW ENGINE, THE 1200 SPORT 8V RECEIVED NOW A NEW COLOR SCHEME ROSSO CORSA.
Moto Guzzi present an important new machine for the sports sector: the 1200 SPORT 8V. With its new graphics painting a picture of elegance and sophistication, the exclusive look and technical specifications of the new Moto Guzzi promise performance. The first thing you will notice is the design as you look back along the panels and note the clear rear lamp cluster and the new exhaust. This system now features an aluminium silencer with a triangular base below the over and under finned exhaust pipes that symbolise Moto Guzzi power and innovation.
The throbbing heart of the 1200 SPORT 8V is the new 8V engine that, thanks to its unmistakeable transverse V90 architecture, cannot fail but to catch the eye. As the latest form of the engine that was fitted to the Griso and Stelvio, that on the 1200 SPORT 8V differs in its intake and exhaust system. These factors were developed to offer better engine response at medium to high revs and to match the sporting character of the bike. The engine puts out over 105CV at 7500 rpm with 110Nm of torque at 6500 rpm. The engine also acts as a load-bearing component of the tubular twin cradle frame. The frame itself is made of high resistance steel that provides solidity and rigidity.
In true Moto Guzzi tradition, only the best brakes and suspension systems are used: Brembo Gold Series brakes and Marzocchi forks grace the front end. The brakes have radial mounted four-piston calipers acting on 320 mm discs while the forks are a traditional 45 mm unit. The comfortable, excellent riding position along with the forward position of the handlebars give the rider complete control and allow him to concentrate on enjoying the ride.
The 1200 SPORT 8V is now available in the new Rosso Corsa color scheme in addition to classic black or in the original titanium grey. These schemes perfectly offset the white racing number plates on the screen and on the saddle that is edged with a subtle green, white and red stripe that celebrates the bike s Italian heritage..
The look we already know but the 105 CV of grunt from the 8V engine is all new. The power delivery is silky smooth and, on the open road, the bike s true sports character shines along with numerous technical innovations and a new sense of style. The new over and under exhaust system communicates the innate power and innovation of the engine as does the new triangular base of the silencer and the new clear rear lamp cluster. Better performance ensures that the new 1200 SPORT 8V will become an icon for riders seeking real sports performance, not just show. Good taste is assured by the style that gives this Moto Guzzi its character. This style can be seen in the screen and the saddle that house racing number plates like competition models, it can be seen in the white-faced instruments, in the Brembo Gold Series brakes and in the set-back aluminium footpegs.
Although the new Moto Guzzi 1200 SPORT 8V has a decidedly sports type set-up, it is also an excellent tourer with every detail well designed for the rider and pillion passenger to travel in the utmost comfort. The saddle is well padded and offers great support, weight distribution is ideal and with a low centre of gravity, the 1200 SPORT 4 V can easily change direction very quickly on those twisty roads that offer the rider such satisfaction.
The superb handling is due to the exceptional rigidity of the twin cradle steel frame, the forks and the fully adjustable shock absorber that guarantee both comfort and excellent road holding. Those of you that go touring will really appreciate the protection offered by the windscreen and how this sports bike so easily becomes a real Grand Tourer complete with heated hand grips, panniers, top box and satellite navigation system.
No matter the speed, the brakes provide very wide safety margins and consist of twin 320 mm discs with radial mounted four-piston calipers at the front and a single 298 mm disc at the rear. The brake sizes are the same on the ABS version.
In the new sporty Rosso Corsa in addition to classic black or elegant titanium grey, the 1200 Sport 8V also stands out with its subtle green, white and red stripe that celebrates the bike s Italian heritage.
