2013 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V

Perfect condition - never ridden in the rain. Impossibly low miles (3151), just had the 3000 mile service, so you won't need to bring it back to the dealer for another 6000 miles! Absolutely babied from new. 1 of 5 bikes in the garage so it doesn't get ridden much.

What is a Griso?

It's not a sportbike, and it's not a cafe racer, it's definitely not a cruiser.

In European magazines, they call it a Hooligan Bike. A big, torquey motor, a lightweight chassis and all of the Top-notch brake and suspension components including fully adjustable 43mm Marzocchi fork and Sachs shock, 320mm front Brembos with stainless lines, etc.

Voted "Best Used Bike" by Cycle World Magazine:

It has forged alloy wheels with stainless steel spoke and it's a single-sided swingarm so tire changes are a snap.

It's a Guzzi, so maintenance is minimal, and you can do it all yourself. A valve adjustment takes around 30 minutes with no special tools needed. Oil changes are a breeze. There's no Chain or belt to break or adjust, this bad boy is shaft drive. It's oil cooled so there's no Coolant, thermostat, water pump or hoses to worry about.

Upgrades:

Fender eliminator kit $120 This gets rid of the ridiculous rear license plate carrier and mounts the turn signals closer to the body.
Rizoma Turn Signals $180 with LED flash unit to keep them flashing at the correct tempo.
Battery Tender $49 with lead installed so you can just plug your bike in when you won't be riding it for a while.
Sylvania Super Blue high output headlight bulb $42
