Watch. It'll end up being a Dorsoduro motor turned sideways.  Smile

Hmmmm. If you look at this Dorso 900, you can see the V85 is getting the Aprilia instrument, the one sided shock, red trellis frame, high front fender etc. etc..

Gee, and when I suggested turning a Ducati motor sideways and putting it into GRiSO to bring Guzzi somewhere closer to the 21st century, people said I was mad! Twisted Evil

Thank you Beetle, it's great to be deemed worthy, from the inner sanctum of the FIG. geek

The Dorsoduro is water cooled. Isn't it? So unless Guzzi PR got it wrong....

New high revving 8V small block in a Dorsoduro chassis. Tee hee!

I'm thinking it will be a sort of hybridization between the brands. Maybe air cooled with that sweet DOHC head. It looks like a lot of cross pollination between the Dorso 900 and the new V85 anyway. Isn't Piaggio/Aprilia doing the design work now for Guzzi anyway? If the rumors are true that the new motor will have 5 valves, wouldn't it be easier to accomplish with a DOHC set up?

The 900 Dorso motor makes 95hp. Maybe an aircooled version would be around 80 hp.

I can't believe that no one has any information on the new motor. How tight can that factory be? I can't believe that there hasn't been any "sneak peeks" by the factory as a teaser.

Air/oil cooled Dorso motor. Hmm....

Dunno about five valves. At least one of them would need a sub-rocker if it's a DOHC set up.

I think they'll get the extra power by carving the injectors out of unicorn ivory and making the loom out of plaited mermaid pubic hair.........

Catch shave and release, too high maintenance to keep.

Guys, I think the engine presented in Milano is just a mock-up for to show the enduro vehicle.
The main target for MG is to observe the market interest.

This engine is soo far away from Euro 5a requirements as could be.
According to informations from a German motorcycle magazine, the serial intruduction is planned for 2021 (ceremony 100 years of Moto Guzzi).

The engine will for sure be designet to fullfil Euro 5a, which clearly means 4 valves (otherwise the power drop due to the stringent emission limits would be too much) and partially watercooled.

We have to wait a couple of years without a replacement for the gap between V7/9 and 1400.
I am very proud to own one of the last GRiSO's, sold in Europe. That's what I want to have!!!

Ralf

At EICMA, they said the bike would be in showrooms in September.

I think what was mentioned at the show was that the full line of bikes that were going to be developed around this new motor, and that they wanted to have the rest before the 100 year anniversary.
