    I have a thing for Guzzis. I have oggled the Centuaro, the 2002-04 Ballabio/Lemans V11, the Griso and the Norge. My Capo 1200 is near perfect. it does everything well I ask of it - from MC camping, to sport riding, to a comfortable ride with the Mrs. But Something about a Guzzi stirs the soul still. Here I am again toying with the idea of getting a Griso. In a perfect world it would do everything my Capo would do with less maintenance, lower cost to own, and just as much power. Ah but a daydream me thinks. If I got a Norge or Griso would the maintenance be lower and cost less? Could I tease nearly as much power out of them?

    You'll get about a hundred honest RWHP out of a correctly tuned and mapped 1200 8V. Maintenance costs on Guzzi's tend to be a lot lower than most bikes because they are so stupidly simple mechanically.

    There's a very nice 2011 Norge sitting in Winchester Motorsports in VA, saw it yesterday. It's sticker price is $6,950 I think but the shop owner who I believe is selling it on consignment said that it could be had for a lot less. it needs rollerising though. They've also got a factory roller 2012 Griso in there but I can't remember the price on that one.

    I love it. I'm not a big fan of the headlight/numberplate thing, but I could live with it

    I may go back to a Guzzi when I get too old to ride my Tuono. Thats not an insult to Moto Guzzi btw I really do like them.

    Thats a loooong engine but solves the side draught inlet issue - maybe better as a twin?
