I think I do know because I had a 1200 2 valve Sport and Breva and may even have sent you a map in the past (aka molly).

I suspect Piaggio will bring the Le Mans name in a water cooled version eventually to fill up the gap.
This V85 crap ain't gonna do...

i dont want a water cooled engine in my guzzi, lets skip that and go electric.

I want something that looks like this

So if someone can gear two electric motors togehter and convert the BMW style of this into the above then they have a sale :-)

Electric motor?? Even worse! lol
Say goodbye to the soul of the Guzzi.
I prefer the air cooled but Euro regulations will force it...

Vote the regulators out? Or they could have an accident?

BMs since water cooling have gone up a cup size for sure.

I had a BMW R1100s shown in the original cartoon and a fine bike it was too. One of the reasons I went over to Guzzi was BMW replaced the R1100s with a 1200 that was no longer practical. Today I wouldn't touch a modern Beemer with a barge pole.

I currently run a nicely sorted R1100S (Remus system, Techlusion etc..) and an 1100 GRiSO (also sorted to my taste), I much prefer the engine in the Guzzi, the BM goes well enough but very vibey above 5k but the R is a great open road bike its just that I am over it I just don't find the Boxer that charismatic (have owned a 1200GS as well)

So swapping both for a nice post 13 1200 GRiSO (the G1100 is going to my friend so staying in the family so to speak)

Summat about these Guzzi's Very Happy

i had a R1150GSA on which i did 100000km before trading it in for the GRiSO. In al fairness, i don't think the GRiSO will get that far, also because it will be a showpony and not a work horse.

I loved it. Holiday trips etc. I did look at the 1200gsa's but my friends all got wifes and kids etc so the adventures holidays are done. I did miss a bit of power in the 1150 so i wanted something a bit more sporty. Did look at BMW, but couldn't find something to my liking. I found the GRiSO attractive. Maybe because it looks different.

The thing is, if you want a 2 cylinder and something normal, BMW, Duc and Guzzi are the first choices for most (tour/sport/adventure style). Those three have character for sure. BMW is expensive, true, but good quality. Duc is expensive and comes with expensive problems, and Guzzi, ah well, Guzzi. It's not problem free, but its a little cheaper to fix or deal with Razz
