Mille Percento: Moto Guzzi Griso BB1 1420

The big-bore Griso BB1 looks dark and aggressive. We like it!

Here’s a bit of good news for Moto Guzzi fans – Italian tuning house Mille Percento have launched a bored-out, liquid-cooled, 1420cc version of the air-cooled Griso 1100. With the modified engine making 125bhp at 7500rpm, the Griso BB1’s performance is likely to be significantly better than the stock bike’s.

A large radiator mounted across the front of the crankcases, a water pump, larger fuel-injectors, Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes with radial-mount calipers are also a part of the package.

No word on prices yet, but the Mille Percento Griso BB1 1420 meets Euro III emissions regulations and will be sold in Europe as a limited production model.

Does the Ducati 848 have what it takes to take on its own big brother, the 1098? See what the men at MCN have to say about that, here!
