Moto Guzzi unveiled its V100 Mandello sports tourer at the EICMA motorcycle show tonight, confirming key specification details for the all-new model.
We now know that the V100 Mandello draws power from a 1042cc twin-cylinder engine that generates 84kW and 104Nm, sending drive to the rear wheel via a single-sided swingarm.
The Italian sports tourer also features a six-axis IMU to provide advanced traction control and cornering ABS that can be tailored via four rider modes, Travel, Sport, Rain and Road.
Notably, the Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello debuts a new active aerodynamics system that sees wind deflectors on either side of the 17.5-litre tank adjust automatically to optimise wind protection.
In a recent press release, Moto Guzzi claims that the aerodynamic ‘appendages’ reduce air pressure on the rider by 22 per cent, allowing a level of air protection ‘afforded by more voluminous and less sporty tourers’.
Other tech inclusion include Ohlins semi-active suspension, an up/down quickshifter, a 5.0-inch TFT display with smartphone connectivity, heated grips and cornering lights.
The bike’s overall design could be considered a modernised, sporty approach to Moto Guzzi’s established design language. This is most pronounced by its aggressive LED headlight signature, front fairing with aerodynamic elements, and lightweight multi-spoke wheels, while its red-stitched leather saddle and badging maintains Moto Guzzi’s retro Italian theme.
Australian pricing and availability has yet to be confirmed, although INFO MOTO anticipates a mid-2022 arrival.
