Technology and 80 years of tradition merge in the new V11 Sport Rosso
                 Mandello, the Moto Guzzi café racer

                 Red is the colour of the Italian sports car. And it is the colour that has always
                 marked the most successful Moto Guzzi motorcycles. The Le Mans were red, as
                 was the frame of the V7 Sport, all motorcycles that have sustained riders’ respect.
                 As a reminder of this great tradition and to celebrate its 80th birthday, an
                 anniversary which falls in the year 2001, Moto Guzzi is introducing the new V11
                 Sport Rosso Mandello, a special edition and limited series of the latest and most
                 sporty model in the range.

                 Only 300 examples of the V11 Sport Rosso Mandello will be produced, all
                 rigorously certified and recognisable by a numbered plaque on the side panels.
                 This version is easy to recognise by a series of components which differentiate it
                 from the basic version. Typically racing features, made from carbon fibre, further
                 accentuate the successful contrast between tradition and new ideas.

                 The high-profile carbon fibre fairing means that the V11 is less bare and full use
                 can be made of its performance potential. The same material is used to make the
                 new front mudguard and the smart bridge on the instrumentation panel. Silencers
                 are also made out of carbon fibre, helping to make this a lighter and
                 higher-performance machine. A touch of exclusivity is provided by anodised
                 features which create a new chromatic effect. The frame plates which support the
                 footrests and the valve covers of the V-twin cylinders are anodised in red.

                 Being personalised in this way, the V11 Sport Rosso Mandello is able to bridge
                 the gap between those people who want the charm of a classic motorcycle and
                 those who want to be abreast of technological evolution. The engine plays a major
                 aesthetic role and is coupled to a compact and efficient gearbox which, by using
                 the technology used in Formula1 circles, has rapid, accurate and silent clutch
                 operation. This technological treasure can be found on all V11 Sports, but the
                 Rosso Mandello also has something new; the hydraulic clutch which is now fitted
                 with a single disc with sintered friction material.

                 To satisfy riders who take braking to the limit, the V11 Sport Rosso Mandello has
                 two disc brakes that are lighter and more efficient. No changes have been made to
                 other chassis elements. The Marzocchi cantilever swing-arm and the White Power
                 shock absorber remain.
