PostSubject: How many produced?   Tue Jul 29, 2014 1:54 pm

So i've recently acquired the 2006 G1100 and I am interested to know how many were produced for the year, in total and including the 8V. Think I can find any real information trawling the internet? Nothing of any substance.

Does anyone have any info on this?

8V wasn't produced until 2007 and didn't go on sale in most markets until 2008. The 1100 started production in 2005, once again most markets didn't see it until 2006. The 1100 was in fact one of the shorter model runs, in reality only produced for two years, 2005-6 although the 2006 build models continued to be sold into 2007 and 2008 in the USA. The very last of them did have some changes. The use of valve guide oil seals and a trochoidal oil pump being ones that spring to mind. Your 2006 most likely has no seal and still uses the spur gear pump.

As for numbers? World-wide? No idea. No more than a few thousand at most.

Thanks Pete.

I did come across mention that Moto Guzzi's total production for 2006 was about 10,000 units in total.
So maybe for 2 yrs production of the G1100 might be only 3000-4000 units..... Maybe.

Got to love surmise and conjecture Smile

I found that there were 500 GRiSO 8-valves made in 2009. That's it Google GRiSO production totals

Entirely possible. When you take into account the novelty, (Never a good thing when dealing with the Corn Cob Pipe and Red Suspender brigade.) the tappet failure issue and the rather striking and unusual appearance of the machine and couple it with press reviews that damned with faint praise in the year of launch it is unsurprising that 2009 production numbers were low.

Then there was also the fact that they were gearing up for the Stelvio launch in the USA which would of filled the production line. Needless to say as soon as it arrived in the USA it sold like six week old rat sandwiches because the press bemoaned its small tank and BMW paid a shitload more in advertising for their horrible GS Polar Bear Smuggling shitheap.

GRiSO numbers have never been huge. It seems that only now are people cottoning on to what a great road bike it is! So what will the factory do? Cease production next year! Oh well, at least it means my kids will inherit something worth a quid...... NOT!

For the UK you can go here, it gives the numbers licensed per year and those still on the road.

On that database is SORN 'Still On Road Now'? If so is that suggesting that the attrition rate is such that ther is only one 2008 GRiSO still registered? If so that is incredibel!

I'm dubious about these figures from this howmanyleft site. I put in 'Yamaha GTS1000' and it says there are 2 licensed and 5 on SORN (one of which is or may be mine). I'm fairly sure there are more than 2 riding around. I'll put a question on the GTS Club forum to get an idea of how many are licensed in the UK.

[Later] I've had one reply on the GTS club site, who says he knows of a dozen and has 4 SORNed and 2 project bikes himself.

Fair comment although the .gov site itself says that the data is representative, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] There is obviously no way that it will know about those riding without tax or insurance and I suppose there would be a lag in the data. Or maybe its just a normal UK gov cock up.
