Both nice cruisers - I'll take 1 of each.

The V has the looks and the Guzzi has it's "original-to-the-bone" singularity. Both do what they were built for very nicely. No dissappointments in either IMO.

My two daily rides now have Portuguese plates and can be sold at a profit - I'll give a modern Griso another go. Cheap and, in my opinion, ragingly cool. Only the sub 100BHP motor put me off it. 110BHP (stock) sounds a lot more like it...
I am tellin ya man... I am a believer in the new GRISO. I might have one in my garage by the end of next week!!! Sadly I might have to dump street rod. No need for two sport standard muscle cruisers. But that opens me up to possibly getting a cruiser based VROD. IF this goes down, then it will be between the muscle and the nightrod.

According to my research- it is character from an old Italian novel. Think "Tony Soprano" supposedly he was a real bad ass dude.

There is good reason those big, fat focks at the track don't pull good numbers with their monster bikes!
Isnt the NHRA Vrod about 150Lbs heavier. Weight means nothing...if you make enough HP.

What does this mean? Were you there? Umm no. Performance wise I was taken, fair and square and I am man enough to admit it! That said, I still think in the looks department- I win

It's huge if the bike in the lane next to you is 150# lighter and no, the NHRA VRod is not 150 heavier.
