Moto Guzzi celebrated its centenary in 2021, but the company sees it as a springboard, a foundation to build the future. The start of a new century in which Moto Guzzi will continue to make great bikes with a robust and authentic personality.
These state-of-the-art bikes, complete with attractiveness and cutting-edge technology, will be proudly built in Italy as always at the Mandello del Lario factory, which will always be at the heart of Moto Guzzi’s excitement.
The Eagle’s Nest, which will undergo extensive reconstruction, expansion, and development over the next few years, will also benefit from a fresh look. The facility has been opened to the public, serving as a gathering place for bike enthusiasts. By carefully combining history and innovation, engineering and design, this new industrial vision—based on the ideals of environmental sustainability and resource efficiency—will help develop an entirely distinct technological and cultural heritage.
2023 Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello Sports Adventure Bike – Features and Specs
Thanks to the latest technology and innovative aerodynamics, today’s Moto Guzzi is unlike anything you’ve seen before, setting the standard for future developments in the industry.
As with all Moto Guzzis, the V100 Mandello will feature an avant-garde design that emphasizes showcasing the exclusive dual engines. Rather than being sentimental, these lines offer a contemporary interpretation of the core elements of the Moto Guzzi style. The tank shapes refer to the powerful engine heads, the side panels under the seats, whose slots refer to the fabled 1976 Le Mans, and the top fairing, which pays homage to the 1981 Le Mans 850 III. These are all examples.
Its actual displacement is 1042cc. The timing system features a double overhead camshaft with finger followers and four chain-operated valves per cylinder. It also has a liquid cooling system, a hydraulically actuated wet clutch, and a wet sump lubrication system.
With more than 115 HP and more than 105 Nm of torque, the performance is unmatched. 90% power is available at 3500 rpm, and the limiter is set at 9500 rpm. Information that successfully conveys the personality and power of the new engine — it’s quick, has real drive even at low speeds, and can deliver a riding experience that’s true to the Moto Guzzi brand.
The shaft uses a long, single-sided swingarm made of aluminum drive. It is now on the left. Because of the torque transfer, the driveshaft exit position—significantly lower than earlier Moto Guzzi engines—eliminates any suspension reaction and removes the need for a linkage on the swingarm. It provides a smooth ride during acceleration and release, just like a chain drive, but with the benefits of a shaft, i.e., less maintenance and better cleaning.
The V100 Mandelo’s compact and manageable chassis delivers long distances and excitement during turns and fast sections while maintaining that unique front-wheel feel synonymous with fun and riding pleasure, the bike’s sporty character. I also contribute. It is also a result of the bike’s 1486 mm wheelbase steel tube frame, which reflects its agility and is a product of the best Moto Guzzi construction culture.
Significant comfort from the large saddle and dynamic, comfortable riding position enhances its touring attitude. In keeping with the philosophy of the model, a single variable section aluminum handlebar has been adopted. This handlebar is ideal for maintaining control during sports and provides a more comfortable and elevated riding position when touring. The basis of the project is a two-person ride, where the passenger can count on a large, well-padded saddle area, functional grip handles, and a posture that guarantees a comfortable ride.
The extensive, dedicated accessories catalog includes a set of bike cases. These cases can be assembled without additional support and accommodate the bike’s weight and side bulk. With the world’s first adaptive aerodynamic system that automatically changes the position of the deflectors on the sidewalls of the 17.5-liter tank based on speed and selected riding mode, Moto Guzzi technology also helps increase comfort and wind protection. The V100 Mandelo approaches the level of aero protection offered by the less sporty and more large tourers thanks to the safety provided by the top fairing, whose height can be adjusted electronically. Fully inflated aerodynamic appendages reduce wind pressure on the rider by 22 percent.
There are four unique riding modes: road, rain, sport, and travel. Each of these controls has three separate engine mappings, four traction control levels, three engine brake levels, and (on the version that adds them as standard) Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension calibration. This semi-active suspension can automatically adjust minute-by-minute to the type of riding and road conditions for optimal bike handling in any condition.
Moto Guzzi technology aims to make life easier while riding and provide a thrilling and safe experience. To take advantage of the optimal automatic adjustment of electronic parameters—which can also be personalized so that each rider can find their preferred settings—the rider needs to select the riding mode that best suits their needs. Complete with an entire LED lighting system with DRLs, 5-color TFT instrumentation, and a “Bending Lights” system—consisting of two additional lights that highlight the whole corner to improve visibility while bending this—are also standard features.
There are two versions of the V100 Mandello with different trims, apart from the quick shift, heated handgrips, and the Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia platform – which enables the smartphone to connect to devices via Bluetooth to expand its functions. Moto Guzzi MIA comes with both.
