THE CONCEPT, THE ENGINE, TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS SUCH AS ADAPTIVE AERODYNAMICS, STYLE AND DESIGN, ADVANCED ELECTRONIC SOLUTIONS AND HER ATTITUDE AS A GREAT TRAVELER. ALL TO DISCOVER HERE.
January 2023 - Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello opens an entirely new chapter in Moto Guzzi history; a bike that shuns being catalogued in a specific category, combining agility on curvy routes with the innate travel vocation that every Moto Guzzi has; a door that opens up to the future of the brand thanks to the innovative technical and aerodynamic solutions implemented.
V100 Mandello is innovative starting with its design which, as always, begins with the enhancement of its unique and inimitable twin-cylinder. A turning point in the brand's history, leading to the introduction of extremely significant technological innovations: the very first motorcycle to offer adaptive aerodynamics, and the first Moto Guzzi to be equipped with advanced electronic solutions such as the six-axis inertial platform, cornering ABS, semi-active suspension and the quick shift, to cite just a few of the most important features.
And it is the first Moto Guzzi to be powered by the new “compact block” engine, with its refined technical characteristics. Tradition is respected with the 90° transverse V architecture of the twin, which guarantees that unique torque delivery and inimitable Moto Guzzi sound, but the project is in fact all new and boasts decidedly brilliant performance: it has 115 HP at 8,700 rpm and maximum torque of 105 Nm at 6,750 rpm, with 82% available already at 3,500 rpm and the limiter set at an amazing 9,500 rpm.
Its sporty character is supported by a compact and agile chassis architecture, whereas Its touring attitude is boosted thanks to the significant comfort that the generous saddle and active, relaxed riding position afford. Moto Guzzi technology contributes to increasing both comfort and air protection thanks to the electrically adjustable top fairing and with the adoption (for the first time in the world) of an adaptive aerodynamics system that automatically adjusts the position of deflectors on the sides of the litre tank depending on the speed and selected Riding Mode.
The electronics package is first-rate, comprising the Ride by Wire electronic accelerator for precise performance and consumption control, the advanced Marelli 11MP ECU, the six-axis inertial platform for effective management of the electronic controls, cruise control, and Cornering ABS to ensure active safety when braking through the turns.
Four Riding Modes are available, namely Touring, Sport, Rain, and Road. Each of these manages three different engine mappings, four levels of traction control, three levels of engine brake and (in the version that introduces them as standard) also calibration of the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension, which can adapt automatically, minute by minute, to suit the type of riding and the road conditions, for the best possible bike behaviour in any situation.
