The long-awaited Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello are now officially available in Malaysia after it’s successful global introduction two-years ago.
- The V100 Mandello is available in two variants; Standard and S.
- The first production motorcycle to feature adaptive aero.
The V100 Mandello is available in two different trims, Standard and S with the latter features lavish components including Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension, quickshifter, heated grips, TPMS and Moto Guzzi MIA system.
That said, the standard is available at RM99,900 while the S comes in at RM117,900.
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.
According to Moto Guzzi, air deflectors can reduce wind disturbance up to 22%. Moving on to the best bits, the V100 gets Öhlins semi-active suspension, traction control, three engine maps, and three engine braking that can be accessed via a 5″ TFT display.
