Moto Guzzi V11 Scura 2002

The famous Moto Guzzi sport bike, still more aggressive.

The tough "all black" fairing of the new V11 Sport Scura is just an outside manifestation of the many technological additions to this bike. The sport bike par excellence of the Moto Guzzi line is introduced in an all-new version, with innovations to the suspension system, the front axle and the clutch, for improved steering precision and better performance on curves and an overall increase in riding comfort. The control is also "lighter" thanks to the new clutch with reduced reverse torque. The colour is not the only modification to its appearance which has undergone a thorough make-over. In the technological details, the adoption of a new Öhlins fork with legs increased in diameter by 43 mm is noteworthy. With the increase in diameter, the rigidity and efficacy of the absorption action increase, providing more predictable handling and impeccable entrance into curves. The change of the steering shock absorbers goes along the same lines, and the directional hold in curves is ensured by the new rear shock absorbers, also Öhlins. Its appearance adds to its hi-tech quality, with the diffuse use of carbon fibre. The tank cushioning, the ignition guard and the silencers are made of this material. This is not only a matter of appearances, as the carbon fibre elements contribute to reducing overall weight. The more aerodynamic rear-view mirrors are also new additions. The new colours and designs of the sides, the tail piece and the seat cover are especially feisty.
