Moto Guzzi Griso 8v Ipothesys
There seemed to be an endless line up of amazing bikes at this year’s Motor Bike Expo in Verona, and this custom Moto Guzzi Griso 8v by Ipotheysy is a perfect example of one. Built by Filippo Barbacane from Officine Rossopuro it’s a revision of the naked Guzzi cruiser that upgrades its looks and it’s handling to become a performance-focused street racer.
The Guzzi was torn down to the sub frame and the entire tail section was removed to begin the rebuild process. While the bike was stripped performance upgrades were made to the Griso’s handling that included a Brembo radical brake system and ergal 320mm front discs. A Bitubo Monoshock and Marzocchi forks replaced the factory Guzzi units to create a sportier ride. A beautifully simple custom exhaust was designed that follows the lines of the frame and boosts the power figures and is one of my favorite parts of the bike (looks great + goes better = thumbs up).
