- the V100 Mandello is the firm’s first motorcycle to feature Öhlins semi-active suspension.
- powering the sports cruiser is the firm’s latest 1,042cc transverse 90-degree V-Twin engine that makes 115hp and 105Nm @ 3,500rpm.
The sports-tourer will finally making it’s way to our shores just seven months after it’s global introduction back in November 2022.
The V100 Mandello is not just another new motorcycle coming from Moto Guzzi, it also represents the brand bold move into the 21st century.This is due to the fact that the V100 is the first production motorcycle to feature semi-active suspension, 6-axis IMU, cornering ABS, quickshifter and a liquid-cooled engine.
Basically, it is the first Moto Guzzi with everything modern and we are surprised that the V100 Mandello even has an adaptive aerodynamics package. Nevertheless, as a sport-touring machine, the V100 Mandello still sport the classic element of a Moto Guzzi.
The V100 Mandello makes 115hp and 105Nm @ 3,500rpm from its 1,042cc transverse 90-degree V-Twin engine. The engine is also 103mm shorter than the V85 TT platform.
Thanks to a lower positioning of the drive shaft, the V100 Mandello offers a smooth ride during accelerating and decelerating on par to a bike with a chain drive.
It also features a 17.5L fuel tank and a large saddle comfortable for riders and pillion.
However, to increase comfort, the V100 is equipped with adaptive air deflectors located at the front fairing which extend to different degrees depending on the riding mode and bike speed. The exciting feature is something we never seen before on any bikes available in the market.
The arrival of the all-new V100 Mandello is definitely something to look out for in 2023. However, we are more intrigued in finding out the price tag for the technologically advanced machine which is set to be unveiled in a week’s time.
