Wow, i am glad, I finally found you. My name is Thorsten, I was born 1963, drive Guzzi since 1999. When I did a test drive with a Moto Guzzi California EV I fell in love from the very first moment. The stroke of the engine hit me hard. Before I used to drive Yamaha SR500, XJ 650 and a BMW R80R (worst bike I had). I drove 80.000km with the California visiting a lot af countries in Europe. No problems. The a friend of min gave me his V11 LeMand for a ride... I really wandet this bike so bad... and I bought one in black colour. On a motocycle exhibition in Dortmund/Germany I saw the GRiSO as concept vehicle. And I knew... this will be my bike soon. Well.... it took a while till Guzzi managed it to launch this modell.

But then I got the chance to drive one and changed it against the V11. I changed some things... mounted a BOS Exhaust system with a special adapter made of [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Unfortunately i had to sell this bike. But since last year I got a GRiSO again. Black, 1100ccm and bought her with 2000km - now 9000km. Changes: airbox opened, power commander, adapter to raise the bar 20mm... yesterday I mounted a Zard muffler.

I live in the western part of Germany not far away from Cologne, Nürburgring, the famous race track is an hour to drive to. I work in Trier, near the border of Luxemburg during the week as public relations office in an American company. Every year I go to Italy to visit sacred ground: Mandello del Lario. I am one of the founder of "Moto-Guzzi-Forum" a German speaking Guzzi-Forum.

I do my maintance in my garage. For traveling with my wife I bought a Stelvio NTX, MY 2015.

May be I could help with my experiance. And I am looking forward to have a nice exchange with GRiSO-Enthusiasts all over the world.

Thank you and see you.

Yeah, this is Guzzi Heaven indeed. But I went through Guzzi-Hell too with my last California EV, my first V11 LeMans (replaced nearly verything) or my LeMans II. bounce

Welcome Thorsten,

Thanks for the pics and links. Wonder if you might have any thoughts on your current Zard vs previous BOS exhaust.

Enjoy the site.

Well that is difficult, because the BOS System came with a power-commander. Compared to the Zard, the BOS-Double-Cans sound much more agressive. And there is a strong increase of torque and horsepower too.

Thanks for posting the info. Thorsten. Interesting

It does look like there is an increase in torque. Oddly, the top chart looks similar to an R NineT / GRiSO curve which I have seen online or in a mag review at some point recently and the beemer also has a dual separate can exhaust... No clue if that makes the diff. for the BMW though, just saying fwiw. Wink)

I like to point out, that this charts were published by Daes Mototec. It was done with a GRiSO 1100. The effect might be not the same using the Double-BOS-Mufflers on a GRiSO 850 or an GRiSO 1200 8V.

When driving you really feel the difference of the increased torque. Top-Speed raised to 10 km/h.
