    I know they've been around for a few years now, but I recently saw someone on a Griso and thought what a fine bike it looked. Lovely big engine, nice deep V twin rumble purring away without rattles etc, nice riding position, and when he decided to go, it went very well!

    Got me thinking it might not be a bad choice of modern bike. I do tend to find modern bikes 'dull' after a little while.

    Has anyone got any feedback on the Griso?

    Sat on one at a motor show someplace, and the first thing that struck me was how widely splayed out my knees were.
    Didn't seem like much wiggle room or alternate positions either.
    Uncomfortable, even just for a minute or 2.

    YMMV, but sit on one before you buy. ?
    And I've had a guzzi before....

    Just saw this now but figured I'd chime in anyway. I had a Tenni briefly. Looks great and very comfortable. Definitely not a city bike with stop & go traffic as the fueling acts up once the bike gets hot. Dont leave it idling unattended as it can creep off the sidestand and tip over. Early models need the roller tappets upgrade. Spark plug wires must be upgraded. Starter circuit must be upgraded or carry plenty spare fuses. I bought a special stand for maintenance which is a pain.
