Moto Guzzi has today revealed that its breakout sports touring model, the V100 Mandello, will be priced from $28,290 rideaway when it hits Australian showrooms in the coming months.

Stepping up to the higher-spec V100 Mandello S variant will come at a $4000 premium, finished in unique paint schemes from $32,290 rideaway.

While initially slated for a third quarter release, Moto Guzzi’s local distributor has confirmed that its launch has been brought forward to May of this year.

The V100 will be Moto Guzzi’s flagship offering, sitting above the current V7 ($18,030) and V9 ($19,330), as well as the V85 TT adventure bike ($22,230).

INFO MOTO understands that the new V100 platform, which features a litre-class twin-cylinder engine and advanced electronics, will spawn future models including an adventure tourer with taller suspension and ergonomics better suited for touring, among other changes.

News of the Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello’s imminent launch comes as the Italian marque announces a new video project in collaboration with actor and motorcyclist Ewan McGregor.

“This is a truly unique motorcycle: sporty yet comfortable, perfect for a long journey,” said McGregor in promoting the video.

“Its essence is completely Moto Guzzi, and that’s why they managed to design a motorcycle that, despite being ultra-modern, rides like a Guzzi.”

As previously reported, the V100 Mandello is motivated by a new 1042cc twin-cylinder engine that generates 84kW and 104Nm, sending drive to the rear wheel via a single-sided swingarm.

The higher-spec Mandello S variant benefits from equipment such as Ohlins semi-active suspension, an up/down quickshifter, heated grips, a 5.0-inch TFT dash and cornering lights.

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.

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.

Good looking bike but almost $33k and no centre stand? Are there luggage options? Is it shaft drive? How heavy? I guess you guys don’t know all these things yet, but it looks a serious prospect and at 84kW/104nM seems likely to be well credentialled for sports touring.

You can’t tell if it’s shaft drive?

Good one Dave – a few indistinct pics and no data? Yes it looks like it’s shaft drive but how is it done? HP and Nm are both reduced in shaft vs chain – some setups more than others. There’s a lot most people don’t know about this bike yet – care to answer all my other questions?
