This gorgeous Moto Guzzi Sport 1100i just got brought to us to rehome.  It was originally purchased at Moto International and had most of its service performed by them..  Its current owner has not owned it long so we are still digging into all the details.  The bike looks to be in fantastic condition and will be given a thorough look over by SUB service department next week.  We are also led to believe there was some sort of speedometer failure and the miles reflected are more than what is actually on this bike.  More info to come.

Here is what the press had to say about this series of Guzzi’s;

Moto Guzzi’s 1100 Sport Injection was an attempt to produce a sporting machine using the firm’s dated OHV engine design. Launched in 1996 as a replacement for the carburettor-equipped 1100 Sport, it was a budget version of the powerful Daytona 1000 race replica. While the Daytona had an OHC four-valve design, the 1100 Sport stuck with the OHV design common to the rest of Guzzi’s range. The chassis was equipped with high-quality WP suspension and lightweight wheels wore sporting radial tyres. The result, with the slow-reving, rather agricultural engine, was a sportsbike full of character which could be ridden surprisingly quickly on the road, where its extra weight ensured a stable ride through fast bends.

Big, simple, handsome and strong, the 1100 Sport was a mid-’90s sports bike of the old school.  Its engine was essentially that of the faithful two-valves-per-cylinder Le Mans sportster, with bore and stroke increased to give a capacity of 1064cc. The Sport’s larger pistons also gave a reshaped combustion chamber. Other changes including revised camshaft design and a lighter crankshaft combined to produce Guzzi’s most powerful two-valve motor yet, its claimed peak output of 90bhp being 5bhp lower than the Daytona’s figure. This new engine sat in a steel spine frame closely related to that of the Daytona, and used a similar suspension combination of 41mm Marzocchi forks and remote-reservoir rear shock from Dutch specialists White Power. Wheel sizes remained 17 inch front and 18 rear, the Sport’s only cycle-part change being that its four-piston Brembo front brake calipers gripped larger, 320mm discs. The Sport’s subtle restyle incorporated a new seat unit that made room for an occasional pillion while maintaining a lean and purposeful look
