– 2005 Moto Guzzi V11 Cafe Sport
V11 Cafe Sport — Cafe styling with a higher handle bar, more relaxed riding position. The latest 90º V-Twin with added crossover pipe and increased compression ratio to 9.8:1. Brembo Gold Series brakes. Ohlins suspension and sterring damper. Carbon fiber sidecovers, front fender and starter motor cover.
Available in Bronze Gold
Passion and style to sell
At first sight, the bold colour combinations of the V11 CafÃ© Sport make it look like a totally new machine, combining a sports soul with an original yet discrete elegance that sets new trends in motorcycling fashion.
Yet the Moto Guzzi charisma is the same as always, made even more apparent by the gold look fork legs and front brake caliper finished in bronze just like the cylinder heads, frame plates and wheels.
Stylish carbon components like the front mudguard, starter motor cover and side panels reflect the latest technology, designed for safe high performance riding under all conditions.
This fascinating CafÃ© styling could easily make you forget the exceptional road qualities of the V11 family.
The control and manoeuvrability of the V11 CafÃ© Sport is simply superior. The natural, relaxed, high-bar riding position is designed for maximum effect in all riding situations, from quiet lakeside roads to rush hour traffic.
The Ã–hlins suspensions are a guarantee of control in themselves. The front fork with robust 43 mm inner legs permits sensitive and precise entries into bends. In fact everything about the handling is sensitive and instantaneous to help you perform as never before. The effective steering damper is another prestigious Ã–hlins component.
Coming out of bends, the bike returns upright almost automatically, as if it knows what to do, or is following some invisible track.
The Cantilever swinging arm with Ã–hlins monoshock is adjustable in compression, rebound and spring preload.
The engine is the latest, most evolved form of the classic 90° V twin. An inter-collector balancer pipe guarantees perfect power matching between the two cylinders and more muscle at midrange output.
The compression ratio has also increased to 9.8:1, for even more low rev torque.
Despite these impressive specifications, the V11 also complies with Euro 2 environmental standards, thanks to its new 3 way Lambda probe catalyzer.
