2014 Moto Guzzi Griso 8V Black Devil unveiled at the EICMA

The 2014 Moto Guzzi Griso 8V Black Devil looks good!

In addition to the very cool 2014 V7 Racer, Moto Guzzi are now also showing the new, 2014-spec Griso 8V at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan, Italy. And it’s no ordinary Griso either – the bike being shown is the special edition Griso 8V Black Devil, which gets a matte-black paintjob with silver stripes and black-painted frame, wheels, steering plates and handlebar. The Black Devil’s spoked wheels get a red Moto Guzzi logo and we have to say it looks damn cool.

The 2014 Griso 8V Black Devil is powered by the regular Griso 8V’s transverse 90° ‘Quattrovalvole’ 1151cc V-twin that pumps out 110bhp at 7,500rpm and 108Nm of torque at 6,400rpm. Moto Guzzi claim “extremely high torsional rigidity” for the bike’s steel tube chassis, with its twin overhead tubular elements in high tensile steel and generously sized lateral reinforcement of the lower cradle, coupled with single-sided aluminium swingarm that houses the Black Devil’s CARC shaft final drive.

The Griso 8V SE’s suspension is also suitably high-spec – fully adjustable 43mm USD forks and adjustable Boge rear shock with progressive-rate spring. “The geometry has been defined for maximum stability, with a headstock inclined by of 26° resulting in a trail of 108 mm and a wheelbase of 1544 mm. Nonetheless, the Griso 8V SE is surprisingly nimble, rewarding the rider with lightning fast directional changes,” claims a press note from Moto Guzzi. Not too bad at all...
