A 2000 Greenie was my first Guzzi about 15 years ago. I still love that bike but in comparison to a modern 2 or 4v Guzzi it is just a little agricultural. If torque is your best friend then you will love it.
All the things to watch out for are well documented on V11.com forum. I would own one again as a second bike, probably only take it out on those "special"

Had a 2000 greenie. There was a rod bolt recall, mine shat itself and rose farms in Woodstock Ill. rebuilt it with higher compression pistons and some head work. Dyno tuned it. It was a strong runner! Watch for swollen fuel tank also.

Wasn't certain if my affection for the V11 would wane when I got the GRiSO but it hasn't. Still alot of fun.

And Pete, Chuck loaned me 'the Mighty Scura' the other day. What a great bike! I couldn't help but grin cheers

Oh that Scura is *Special*! I have absolutely no idea really what has been done to it but it it is a seriously stupid motorcycle!

I haven't really added anything to this thread simply because the V11 series never really *spoke* to me like the Tonti's and CARC bikes do. It seems to be the way of it, I miss out on every other generation. I've never understood the attraction of Loops! I think they are heavy, slow, evil handling, under braked bits of shit! The Tonti's, especially the early ones, I love, and then the Spineframes always left me cold. With the advent of the CARC bikes it was like a new dawn, and now we've gone back again to platforms in the Cali 14 and Nuovo smallblocks which once again I find torpor inducing!

C'est la vie!

The last of the Guzzi motorcycles before Aprilia/Piaggio got their mitts in it.  I have a bit of a soft spot for the V11 sport series, get one with a carbon fiber or titanium 2 into 2 exhaust and listen in bliss.  We haven't been able to duplicate that sound in a CARC bike yet...

I have both a V11 Sport naked 2000 and a GRiSO 2013, as it as been said, it two different world
i spend 13 years riding on a dailly basis my V11 and now when the weather is good on sunday i go ride with it, and always wonder how did i endure for 13 years as it is really a lumber with a lot o lovely issues.

but at the end of the day, i love it !!

model from year 2000 have the short frame so more response in curve but more wobbleling too.
