PostSubject: Hi from Australia   Wed May 06, 2015 1:06 am

I very close to pulling the plug on a current model GRiSO and would like to ask a few questions please. Are there any changes known about upcoming models as far as in motor size etc. I believe there are shorter to rider handle bars and lowering foot peg kits available? Any recommended touring screens that work. I've been hovering around buying a guzzi for years and want to get one before I'm too old to ride..LOL..Tried the 1400's and loved them but a bit big, like the 1200 sport but not as comfortable as the breva, which isn't available over here new any more, so the GRiSO is what rings my bell. Look forward to any advice.

Call me. 0417 462 440. No, I'm not going to give you a hard sell but I can probably answer most questions far quicker and easier over the phone than I can via PM or email.

Gday. Buy one as soon as possible. Do not delay. Read as much of this forum as possible and ask as many questions as want. All good here.

I agree with Beetle... Just buy it.
The GRiSO is the most Hooliganesque thing ever built in a lonnnnnnnnng time! Very Happy

Welcome. SEQ is a great part of Australia to ride a bike like the GRiSO.

Thanks for the welcome fellas. For the Aussie guys, I've just had a quick chat to Pete and he advised me on a couple of things I didn't know, so much appreciated. Have a houseful of freeloaders tomorrow for the mothers day weekend so no test rides for the next few days. Need to take it over Tambourine / Canungra to see how it measures up against the 2014 1000 V Strom I currently ride. Just did a 1500K weekend on it, smooth and faultless, but very clinical..

Just had a two hour spin on a 2014. Only real issue is bar risers or total bar change. Bit arthritic in my old age and too much wrist pressure when riding around at slow speeds. It had some agnostini or something like that carbon can on it, that sounded shocking, like a hole in the muffler. The new V Strom I currently ride felt like a soggy rag when I rode it home, so it's looking close..LOL...

Did it have a dB killer in the pipe? Of not it would be noisy and fueling like a pig, even if it was correctly set up, which I doubt knowing where you went to test it from.

It probably didn't have a Db killer in it...it was just too noisy. It did run well..pulled like a schoolboy, but f*ken loud. If that's as bad as it can be I'd be happy As an aside do you have any of those spacers for under the risers to lift them an inch. I was considering large stainless washers built up to around 24mm with longer bolts.

The nicest sollution I've seen are the ones offered by 'Fast By Ferracci' but they are spendy. I'm actually considering a pair myself by I simply don't have the money at the moment, (Wah! Wringing of hands in self-pitying way, not! Very Happy).

If it was really loud it didn't have the dB killer in. This is in and of itself a typical case of some salesman saying, 'Make it loud' people love loud!'. I'll keep saying it until my one remaining bollock drops off. Making them louder or sticking in an aftermarket rock strainer in place of the air filter will achieve NOTHING apart from making the bike run badly and use more fuel.

G'day matey and welcome to the ghetto. If you went to sprinwood suzuki the demo would have had the dbk in the agostini muffler. In that case I think you will find the standard muffler quite pleasing. It is bulky but suits the GRiSO. I have the same ago and don't use the dbk which sounds much deeper but not overly loud. You are right about the hole in the muffler, that dbk is a plug with a hole in it. In any case, you will not regret the purchase. Its the bike which you will love more as the time goes by. Truly a unique beast.
