WHY IT'S DESIRABLE: As Guzzi's sport-naked, the Griso is crafted with a good dose of Italian flair. The engine produces robust torque in a throbbing way that is uniquely soothing to the senses. When the pace heats up, its sporting suspension, tires, and brakes allow full exploitation of the chassis and its excellent cornering clearance. On the highway, a rangy 60.9-inch wheelbase equates to a steadfast ride, one that's complemented by one of the most comfortable saddles on the road today. The Griso magically bridges the gap between sportbike and relaxed cruiser. If unique character drives your two-wheel passion, the Griso delivers. In spades.
