    FS: Moto Guzzi V11 Tenni #122 of 170 with 3 piece luggage (located: near Chicago)

    Edit: new price: $6500 for AF1 Forum Members! ;D


    #122 of 170.

    I believe I am the third owner of Tenni #122. I purchased the bike in San Luis Obispo, California and rode it up to Monterey for the MotoAmerica and World SuperBike races last July. Took it down Highway 1 as far as I could go with the road closure due to the mudslide. Took it out to Pinnacles National Park. I took it on a few parade laps around Laguna Seca, and then had it transported to the Chicago 'burbs by Haulbikes.com where it's primarily been a rural road weekend warrior, with the occasional ride to work.

    This V11 Tenni is a rider, not a museum piece. They don't show up in the photos, but there are numerous small knicks / marks on the tank, rear, and lower sides (the front fairing is almost perfect). The imperfections never bothered me, as I purchased this V11 to ride - and it rides well. I've owned plenty of chain driven bikes with transverse engines. This was my first Moto Guzzi, and it took some getting used to. Steering requires a little more effort, and at low speeds you have to be mindful of the rotational forces of the longitudinal engine and drive shaft - but once you've got it down, this bike rewards with amazing stability, a comfortable ride, and possibly the best fairing ever made - both in beauty and smooth, laminar airflow. The hydraulic clutch is light but not limp, and the 320mm dual 4 piston front Brembos with braided lines are a pleasure to use with great feel and predictable, progressive stopping power.

    The separate function forks are adjustable for compression and rebound damping, while the rear shock (just rebuilt by Ken Hall) is fully adjustable. It's also equipped with an adjustable Bitubo Steering Damper. The bike is currently wearing Pirelli Angel GT tires that I would say are good for another 1000 miles - I am including a new set of Dunlop Roadsmart III tires with purchase of the bike.

    Comes complete with both the black vinyl and the brown suede saddles, rear seat cowl, and 3-piece OEM luggage kit.


    - Expandable Moto Guzzi Branded Tank Bag

    • Clear map pocket.
    • Numerous storage compartments.
    • Easily unzips from tank pad for refueling.
    • Converts into a comfortable back-pack.
    • Reflective piping.


    - Expandable Tekno brand soft panniers / saddle bags.

    • Zip and buckle closure.
    • Panniers are expandable to roughly double width.
    • Internal water resistant draw-string liner.
    • Easily removed from bike.
    • Locks to bike with internal key.
    • Mounting hardware goes on/off bike quickly and easily (only 3 bolts per side).


    - Also included with bike:

    • Paddock / service stand
    • Brand new set of Dunlop Roadsmart III tires from Sport Bike Track Gear
    • Spare Air Filter
    • Spare Engine Oil Filter
    • Spare valve cover gaskets
    • Owner's manual & warranty book
    • Service / shop manual
    • Two sets of keys (ignition and luggage)

    - New Fuel Filter at 6300 miles
    - Cleaned internal fuel tank filter screen at 9800 miles
    - New Air Filter at 6300 miles
    - Revised transmission spring
    - Uprated under-seat relays
    - Additional rectifier grounds
    - Lubricated throttle cables
    - Lubricated drive shaft
    - New Choke / High Idle cable
    - Fully adjustable rear shock just serviced by Ken Hall / SB Suspension
    - Oil changed at 9800 miles with Maxima full synthetic, new filter and sump gasket, cleaned internal stainless mesh screen
    - Hydraulic fluid flushed at 9800 miles
    - No coolant to worry about - engine is air / oil cooled
    - Brake pads & discs are in great shape with plenty of life left



    If you are local, I will gladly help you transport all the extras included with this bike (saddle, luggage, paddock stand, tires, books, etc.) back to your home.

    If you are from out of town, and looking to do a fly & ride, I can pick you up at O'Hare Airport and assist with shipping all the extras. Everything will be well packed in sturdy boxes with plenty of protection.

    Clean & clear Illinois title in hand.

    Mileage may go up a little beyond what is pictured, but I'll try to keep it under 10k.

    Sorry, I am not currently interested in any trades - need to thin the herd and pay some bills.

    Asking $6500 for everything. The Motorcycle, new tires, both saddles, tail cover, complete 3 piece luggage set, extra filters & gaskets, books, tools, and paddock stand.

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks, Mambo. It is rather striking. Even non-motorcycle people admire this thing. So a word of warning to prospective buyers - factor in delays at fuel stops and in parking lots. People will want to talk to you about this bike.

    That is pure beauty.

    Would love to hear it ... feel free to shoot a little video and post it up. That could just close the deal with someone.

    Still available!

    Gave up actively trying to sell this bike for a while because I got nothing but scammers and bots on Craigslist. Had it on ebay - buyer backed out. Very frustrating.

    I've ridden it a little more, still under 10,000 miles. Condition is still exactly as pictured above.

    Firm $6500 to an AF1 forum member.
