Moto Guzzi Norge GT 8V
Norge 1200 (1,134 cc) (since 2005): a GT (Gran Turismo) bike made by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer Moto Guzzi from 2006 to 2016 and named after the original GT Norge, which made a 4,000-mile (6,400 km) test ride from the company headquarters in Italy to just inside the Arctic Circle of Norway’s Capo Nord in 1928 to prove its suspension prototype: the world’s first rear swingarm suspension. Moto Guzzi commemorated its 2005 Norge debut by retracing the 1928 route. The design of the Norge and its fairing was improved at Moto Guzzi’s historic wind tunnel at the Mandello del Lario headquarters, reinforcing the company’s history.
Guzzi has been producing this motorbike since 2006, first with a 1200 cm3 engine and then with an 850 cm3 engine the following year. The key distinctions between it and the Moto Guzzi Breva are a big front fairing that covers part of the engine and provides great wind protection, a tip to redirect the air flow from the engine, and two more tiny fairings positioned on the sides of the bike. The ABS is standard on the 1200 model and helps with stopping on slick surfaces. The engine is a Moto Guzzi-style transverse V-twin with a 90-degree slant and a tiny radiator to cool the engine oil.
The final drive is provided by the cardan shaft compact reactive CA.RC, a Moto Guzzi invention that improves performance by decreasing the lifting effect typical of motorcycles equipped in earlier generations.
In the Tourer category, the Norge was named bike of the year in 2007 and 2008.
Moto Guzzi introduced a new model in 2010 with a new fairing, a new aluminum-coated exhaust system, and improved ground clearance; the engine is new, now with four valves per cylinder and homologated to Euro 3 anti-pollution laws, with greater power and torque.
The bike now comes standard with ABS, which can be completely disabled, an on-board computer with a lot of information in addition to fuel consumption, travel time, and the ability to check the state of charge via a digital voltmeter, heated grips adjustable on three levels of heat, and a new electrically adjustable windshield. The side bags, which were previously optional, have been redesigned and have gaskets inserted to prevent water from entering. The optional back case has been redesigned and now has a larger capacity.
You may get a satellite navigator, a gel saddle, a lowered saddle, and an electronic alarm as extras.
