2013 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V SE

The 2013 Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE might well be one of the most unique and captivating motorcycles to come out of the Mandello Del Lario factory. The bold character expressed in the nonconformist styling of the Griso is given further emphasis by the aggressive new black/silver color concept in a matte tone that flows elegantly with the numerous black painted metal elements such as the frame, wheels, steering plates, handlebar and instrument panel covers.

Griso 8V SE has impeccable style; this machine is an instinctive creation, pure, solid and distinctive and in many ways a work of art.

The design details are discreet but elegant and pure quality; the lines blend together and are accentuated by the chrome finishing and satin metal form. The fuel tank lends itself superbly to the strong frame creating an aerodynamic teardrop body which is continued through to the tail which houses three high intensity LED light units.

The Griso is decidedly masculine and powerful yet the “Quattrovalvole” engine seems to be set like a jewel in a frame that shows off its revolutionary design to the utmost effect. Returning to the performance, it becomes obvious that the sophisticated components are not mere technical details included for the sake of style but enhances performance and provides guaranteed reactivity.

The Moto Guzzi Griso SE features the latest transverse 90° V-twin from the “Quattrovalvole” series and produces a peak power of 110 hp at just 7500 rpm with a whopping 108Nm of torque at 6400 rpm allowing the Griso SE to dominate the road with a smooth power delivery whilst the outstanding chassis keeps all those horses in check. The chassis is comprised of a twin overhead tubular element made from high tensile steel and generously sized lateral reinforcement of the lower cradle with ribbing that has been added not only for aesthetic purposes but also for increased rigidity.

The stylish black and silver livery contrasts elegantly with the black metal of the frame which also ties in the black rims, steering plates and handlebars. It also boasts chrome spoke wheels and colour coordinated badges. The incredible two-into-one exhaust system highlights the Griso SE’s boldness and further ads to the character of this unique motorcycle. Its details like this that leave an impression before you even ride the Moto Guzzi Griso 8V SE.

I voted: AWESOME

It's a really nice looking bike, but I still like mine better...but if you're in the States and can't get the MT-01, this is a nice alternative. ;-)

Awesome - always loved this bike, but prefer the older green bike / brown seat version if I had the choice. When you look around there really isn't another bike like it out there.

Not my favorite color scheme for this bike - I liked the ones that were the muted green color with the medium-brown leather seat.

Nonetheless....... it's a Griso 8v. One of my all-time motorcycle lust objects. Automatic AWESOME!! If Piaggio would get serious about their ridiculously sparse dealer network, I woudl SO own one of these.

That was the Special Edition Tenni that came out in 2009 and is my fave Griso as well. :kicking:

I love the look of the Moto Guzzi bikes and I would love to own one. Perhaps a V7 Special, but I also love the idea of long distance riding, there are so many places I want to visit, and the lack of a strong dealer network weighs heavy on my mind. The Griso is just gorgeous.

If I lived in a city with a good Guzzi dealer and had room in the budget for two bikes so that one could just be used in the local environs, then one of the bikes in my garage would be a Moto Guzzi, or perhaps a Ducati, I love the exhaust art on the Ducati Diavel.

What man doesn't want to ride a naked Italian supermodel?

The Griso is easily an Awesome.

Like some women I've known, this bike looks great from the back but it all falls apart in profile. Tank's too low and long to look muscular, and whatever the hell that thing is on the exhaust tip looks great from the back and ridiculous from the side.

That said, I still wanna jump on it and make it scream. Still not the bike to lure me away from cruisers, but it's close. A solid Cool.

I think I've seen the Griso in one form or another (concept bike to 8v) for almost a decade, and I still haven't gotten tired of those looks. An awesome modern classic, and there really is nothing else like it out there.

I voted: Awesome (or Cool+)

I considered the Griso 1200 when I bought my V7 Stone, it definitely is a very unique bike on the market, amazing engine, awesome performance and is a true torque beast. I also really like the design of it and the colour choices Moto Guzzi has done. Even the price for the Griso from a top tier manufacturer like Guzzi is very reasonable. In short, it's pretty awesome. I wonder if there will ever be a V7 "Big Block" Guzzi. :revv:

What made me not buy the Griso was it's riding position (for me, a tall rider), the pegs, seat and handlebar just made me feel a little too pretzel like. If Guzzi lowered the pegs and/or raised the seat then it would have helped.

That said, it's an awesome bike (way to go Moto Guzzi) and I wonder what will come of the next generation Griso as now the California 1400 engine is out...

One thing for sure, Guzzi's are all unique bikes full of character. I'm sure it's 6's and 7's for some but it's one of those engines (small or big block) you just have to take a test ride on and see what it's like.

2013 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V SE - Coolness Factor = 83.3%
Featured: April 26th, 2013 - May 3rd, 2013
Most popular vote category: Awesome


Amazingly we only have 2 bikes in our 2013 Cool Wall lineup that have had 0 fail votes and they are both Moto Guzzi's! In fact, this particular Moto Guzzi with it's final score of 83.3% rockets it up to #1 SPOT on our Cool Wall making it THE most cool bike to date. It's unfortunate then there are not many riders taking advantage of such an awesome bike as there are few on the roads, but maybe that is what makes the Griso so cool too?
