|2014 models coming in September!|
Heavily revised for 2014, the new more powerful 8V motored Norge has comfort, performance, and styling upgrades from previous model years!
The 2014 Moto Guzzi Norge GT 8V continues to source a transverse-mounted, 1151cc V-Twin for power. The 2011 version of the mill has received the same tweaks as the Stelvio’s – revamped electronic controls, timing and cooling systems, new integrated ignition and injection ECU for claimed better throttle response and more midrange. The powerplant does feature a more compact crankcase and cylinder fins tapered towards the direction of travel. The four-valve arrangement is claimed to produce a 20% higher power curve compared to the two-valve version.
The 2014 Norge GT 8V will benefit from a new thermostat-controlled electric fan for the oil radiator installed in the lower fairing. The size of its muffler has also been increased to make it quieter and more compatible with ever-tightening noise emission standards.
Due to the new architecture of the engine, the 2014 Norge GT 8V’s fairing has been re-designed. The side panels are more integrated into the fuel tank and the windscreen is now electronically adjustable. The changes aim to disperse more heat from the engine while improving thermal insulation. Riders are also said to be given more protection from buffeting.
The 2014 Norge’s saddle is 31.89 inches in height and has been outfitted with a wider, more padded seat. The handlebar position has been lowered and retracted slightly while its instrument panel has been moved to make it easier for riders to read.
Small features like a 12 Volt external power socket, a storage compartment below the saddle, heated hand-grips, a new side and central stand and integrated passenger grab handles add to the long list of revisions to the 2014 Norge.
