The team behind Moto Guzzi’s MGS-01 race bike have turned the relaxed V11 naked roadster into this – the Ghezzi-Brain Monza sportsbike.
Designed as a kit that can be fitted as a whole or in steps, the Monza retains the stock Moto Guzzi engine cases and frame but everything else can be replaced with the kit.
The ‘Aesthetic Kit’ comprises of a new front fairing, seat unit, aluminium fuel tank with pump, belly-pan and a new digital dashboard.
Everything comes ready to fit with the necessary brackets and fixings, and lights are included to keep everything road legal, despite the race look.
The modified motor makes a claimed 108bhp courtesy of high compression forged aluminium pistons attached to stronger conrods, and new cams make the best of the remapped fuel injection and the under-slung race exhaust.
New forks come from either Paoli in 41mm sizing, or Mupo in 43 or 46mm diamters. Mupo also supplies the fully-adjustable rear shock.
A new aluminium swingarm lowers unsprung weight, and further weight loss comes from the magnesium or aluminium wheel option. The standard Brembo four-piston calipers and floating discs.
The Aesthetic Kit costs £4083. The engine and chassis modification prices depend on spec and whether you fit the kit yourself – call 0039 03960 60 955 for more information.
