Few motorcycle aficionados are familiar with the Moto Guzzi brand, particularly in the Philippines. However, those who are familiar with the brand are aware that it produces some really soulful motorcycles that have a nostalgic vibe while still being very contemporary.
The V100 Mandello, Moto Guzzi's most recent and highly sophisticated design, was introduced at EICMA 2021. In terms of technology and performance, Moto Guzzi is unquestionably stepping up its game. In fact, we believe that this bike is Moto Guzzi's most innovative motorcycle—possibly ever. We are definitely excited to see this bike in metal. For the time being, though, all we have to rely on is the bike's spec sheet and Moto Guzzi's assurance that it will be a fantastic machine. Let's examine this bike more closely, shall we?
Never before seen technology
In terms of the technology Moto Guzzi is incorporating into the V100 Mandello, we're confident that the company has a few tricks up its sleeve. To begin with, this motorcycle has some active aerodynamic features, including two side-flaps, one on each side, and an adjustable windscreen that moves with the vehicle's speed. Furthermore, more expensive V100 Mandello versions are anticipated to have semi-active suspension from Öhlins—super luxurious equipment, especially for a sport-tourer.
The most potent bike in Moto Guzzi's lineup
A new 1,042cc liquid-cooled, DOHC, transverse V-twin engine will serve as the powerful engine of the V100 Mandello. The new engine will be the most powerful in the Moto Guzzi lineup, producing 115 horsepower and 77.4 lb-ft of torque. A six-axis IMU enables multi-level traction control and lean-sensitive ABS, and a Marelli 11MP ECU helps manage all that power with four ride modes: Travel, Sport, Rain, and Road. The five-inch TFT display on the motorcycle allows riders to operate the powerful electronics package.
The V100 Mandello represents the future of Moto Guzzi
Given the innovative and sophisticated features the V100 Mandello offers, it is not unexpected that Moto Guzzi is trying to change how people perceive the brand as a whole. Recently, the business started a campaign called "Road to 2121" in an effort to position itself for the next 100 years of its existence.
At the company's current headquarters in Mandello del Lario, Italy, a reorganization program centered on the construction of a new facility is the bold ambition. Every Moto Guzzi motorbike that has been produced since the company's founding one hundred years ago was created in Mandello del Lario, where the business has its headquarters. The business expects to maintain and modernize its facilities to continue catering to the motorcycle industry for many years to come.
