– 2005 Moto Guzzi V11 LeMans
V11 Le Mans — Brembo Gold Series brakes, 180/55 17″ rear tire, improved power and torque make this the most powerful version of this direct descendent of the original Guzzi 850 and 1000 Le Mans. The bikes that once dominated endurance racing. Available in Red, Black.
Fast touring, Moto Guzzi style
The half fairing added to the essential, muscular shape of the V11 has created a whole new class of motorcycle, embodying plenty of Guzzi racing spirit with enough extra protection to really make a difference.
Ride the V11 Le Mans and you will never want to get off! Every trip you make offers a chance to try out the long-legged acceleration of the mythical 90° V-Twin power unit, now even better for 2003.
Twisting mountain roads, winding country roads and long motorway straights can all be tackled with the same racing spirit, behind a wrap-around windshield that keeps turbulence off the upper body and makes even longer rides comfortable and relaxing. The V11 Le Mans is a whole new experience in close to the limit solo riding.
You don’t change a winning team, so the basic features that made the V11 Le Mans a success from the word “go” remain substantially the same, or have been improved by the latest innovations. Mapping has been improved (on all V11 Le Mans models) to give more progressive torque and to adjust for the 200 cpsi platinum/iridium lambda probes in the silencers’ catalyzer compensators.
So while the new engine is even more powerful it is also cleaner. The instruments have been updated too, and the old generator warning light eliminated in favour of a more practical second direction indicator light. In compliance with the latest motorcycling legislation, the V11 Le Mans is also equipped with a permanent headlight device for lights-on riding even by day.
