I am new to GRiSO and the forum. I have been riding Moto Guzzi's for 28 years and have a few interesting bikes but this is by far my newest Guzzi. Mine is currently in a truck being delivered to me from Florida. I'm excited to get it and see what questions I have.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

First thing I'd advise is get rid of the shorty pipe and straight mid-pipe. They'll be destroying the bottom end torque. Has it got any 'Tuning' modifications? Power Commander or sensor foolers? If so I'd advise removing them as well and exploring proper tuning options.

It looks like a later model from the sump so you don't have to worry about flat tappets. I'd strongly advise pulling the swingarm to grease the swingarm and shock linkage bearings.

Enjoy.

Was this bike at a shop that was advertising it making 125 rw hp? It looks familiar with that exhaust and seat.

Good advice given above. Big hp numbers may sound great, but good road manners and torque are what gets you down the road quicker, and safer.

125 HP? And it's exhaust gasses aren't even hot enough to colour up the Ti pipes? I wonder how that works?

Welcome, jwfree1973.

I'm a boring stock kind of guy, but I think the overall look -- well, 'cept for that pipe -- is pretty nice.

GTM tank badges?  Must be something super special. Hope you didn't pay too much for it.

Apparently, the OP didn't like it here. He last visited just under 1 hour after posting the above pics.

Is our deodorant not working?

He was waiting for the bike to be shipped. Perhaps he'll be back when it arrives at his place.

There again maybe he won't. It could be that he's fully drunk the the gtm cool aid and was expecting unbridled awe and praise for his good taste and when it wasn't immediately given he decided to look elsewhere for affirmation. Who knows? Maybe he'll be back when he finds out he needs help to get it to run properly.

Wot he said  Cool

Moto Guzzi did a superb job designing the GRiSO, its one of the few bikes I've owned that needs very little in the way of cosmetic change.
A nice original screen and a tastful Mistral silencer is plenty. Possibly a tail tidy.
Am currently restoring my GRiSO exchanging the tacky for original.
Replace the torque arm or don't and the shitty plastic oil cooler cover. Swap out the zinc bolts for stainless. Fit a hugger and a fender extender are tidy upgrades that reduce flung shit.
Those rockers are silver, matt black, chrome and have a red badge. Black paint says duh  Laughing
Used to like the later seats but are saggy, looked f*cked quite quick and the stitching falls out.
The later SE is a style and budget exercise, replace expensive chrome with plastic not chromed, instead of paint use gawdy stickers and leave out the laquer.
Wheels look classic with spokes but then cop out and make them cheap chrome instead of stainless.
Some GRiSO's are owned by grown men with balls and other GRiSO's are owned by men hoping to aquire balls by badly customising an already near perfectly designed machine Laughing
