'Guzzi Breva/Griso 850

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by JohnG., Sep 10, 2006.

  1. It would depend upon how the 12hp less is delivered.

    If it's a long stroke less bore version of the 1100 and has most of the torque then it might well be a nice motor.

    If it's got to rev harder to make up for less power then it probably wouldn't be as nice.

    Hard to tell without riding it.
  2. The 850 has the same bore as the 1100,but has a shorter stroke...so its very 'over square' and 'on paper' should be a good revver.It doesnt have the 1100's oil cooler either or black engine paint,apart from that (and the price) they're identical.
