This from Moto Guzzi for the 2023 V100 Mandello
Motor Guzzi have released the long awaited V100 Mandello as the ultimate bike for sporty fun and touring practicality.
“A bike that makes every corner a thrill and even the longest of trips supremely comfortable for rider and passenger alike”
The V100 Mandello is the first Moto Guzzi to be powered by the new compact block engine which respects the traditional 90° transverse V architecture with a shaft drive, but is liquid-cooled. The 1042-cc engine is a lightweight and compact thing of beauty, coming in at 103 mm shorter than the V85 TT small block and delivering 115 horsepower and 105 Nm torque at 6750 rpm. It comes with a wet sump lubrication system and hydraulically-controlled wet clutch.
The V100 Mandello is a concentration of a century of innovation, including a Ride by Wire electronic accelerator with four Riding Modes, 6-axis inertial platform, ABS cornering for exceptional braking on the straight and through turns alike, Cruise Control, a 5-inch colour TFT display and Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension. Last but not least is Moto Guzzi MIA, the system that connects your smartphone to your bike to make every ride more rewarding than ever.
One of the many standard features that are anything but standard is the full-LED lighting package with cornering lights for improved visibility and safety. Indicators and taillight are also LED, while the DRLs trace the unmistakable form of the iconic Moto Guzzi eagle.
There are two versions available; the red V100 Mandello (£13,500) and the silver green V100 Mandello S (£15,750). There is also a special limited edition V100 Mandello Aviazione Navale.
The Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello’s compact body delivers a sporty experience on even the twistiest roads and outstanding stability and handling, making it ideal for longer trips. Whatever the scenario or required riding style, it comes up trumps in terms of resilience, precision and sheer enjoyment.
Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension (which comes as standard with the S version) delivers exceptional control and dynamic feedback. Whether you’re bent on a sporty ride or taking to the road for a long trip, the Riding Modes function automatically adjusts the suspension for optimal performance on any type of surface and in all conditions.
The Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello is the first motorcycle in the world to incorporate adaptive aerodynamics. More than 200 hours were spent in the wind tunnel finetuning this technology, which reduces air pressure on the rider by adjusting the position of the deflectors in line with the speed and selected Riding Mode. Riding comfort is further enhanced by adjusting the windshield, which can be done either manually or via the Riding Modes feature.
