According to Moto Guzzi Motorcycles
As compact and manageable as a Roadster but with the comfort and and protection of a Tourer, the V100 Mandello is powerful, comfortable and fitted out with the very latest technology. It is the first motorcycle in the world to incorporate active aerodynamics and is also the first Moto Guzzi with semi-active suspension, inertial platform, ABS cornering and Quick Shift. A unique bike that honours a century of tradition while continuing to look to the future.
The V100 Mandello is the first Moto Guzzi powered by the new compact block engine, a traditional V 90° twin-cylinder, but with liquid cooling. It boasts 1042 cc, double overhead camshaft distribution with finger followers and four valves per cylinder, with chain command.
The V100 breaks the rules when it comes to being categorised, perfect for long trips and with new technology that will make most of every journey. With its compact dimensions, dynamic handling, comfort features and innovative aerodynamics, it transforms every trip into an unforgettable experience.
Just a turn of the throttle and you will feel the force of this bike’s fierce, dynamic character, courtesy of 115 HP and a superior torque of 105 Nm at 9500 rpm, ready to give its all even at lower speeds and deliver an exhilarating ride.
The sporty feeling of the V100 Mandello comes through in its brilliant handling, outstanding stability and its manageable compact chassis that never fails to deliver.
The V100 Mandello has an ample seat and an active, relaxed riding position. The aluminium handlebar with variable sections is designed to provide control when in sports mode and a comfortable position when touring. The passenger is not forgotten, with a well-upholstered roomy seat and hand grips.
The first Moto Guzzi powered by the new compact block engine, it respects the transverse 90° V -twin cylinder architecture, with a more compact and lightweight 1042-cc motor, 103 mm shorter than the V85 TT small block. Features include liquid cooling, wet sump lubrication and a wet clutch with hydraulic command.
The V100 Mandello is the world’s first motorbike to adopt an active aerodynamic system which automatically regulates the position of the deflectors on the sides of the 17.5-litre fuel tank in line with the speed and selected Riding Mode to deliver greater comfort and protection from the air, as per a genuine sport-tourer.
The V100 Mandello is the incarnation of over a century of innovation, including a Ride by Wire electronic throttle with 4 different riding modes, 6-axis inertial platform, cruise control and ABS cornering for optimal braking, including on bends. On top of all this, it offers precision handling and fuel consumption management.
Among the many standout features are the 5-inch colour TFT instrument panel and full-LED lighting package with DRL and “bending lights” that improve visibility around bends.
