Featured Listing – 2002 Moto Guzzi V11 Le Mans Tenni with 2,000 miles!

Moto Guzzi boarded the "special edition" party bus with a lot of boutique manufacturers, but the stance of their V11 Le Mans has held up very well, and the Tenni is a standout.  This Tenni has but 2,000 miles and is plated number 114 of 170.

The V11 Le Mans is modern enough that the Moto Guzzi Le Mans wiki doesn't even mention it, but the big axial V-twin didn't fall very far from the family tree.  Horsepower isn't wild at 92, but torque is so abundant that the 6-speed transmission is almost superfluous.  The V11's have beefy alloy side plates which on the Tenni are red anodized, part of a complex but pleasant styling job by Marabese Design.  Components are top notch with Brembo brakes ( unlinked ), lightweight hydraulic clutch, and adjustable suspension by Marzocchi in front and Sachs-Boge monoshock.  Dusty blue alloy wheels are seventeens.

Bought after reading last year's post on the - Tenni - the owner returned it to the road with new rubber, fluids, and a tune-up.  Real life has intervened however, and Rob wants to lighten his collection by several bikes, and unfortunately it's often last-in, first-out at times like these.  With just 2,006 miles, it's in nice stock shape, though Rob notes two paint imperfections - two small cracks on the right tank presumably from sitting with ethanol aboard, and a splatter of something on the seat fairing courtesy of the previous owner.  Part of the Tenni's design is semi-flat finished accents which might not even be painted, so a consult with a paint correction guy might be in order before diving in.

The V11 had a very together design and build quality thanks to new owner Aprilia's financing, and reviewed as somewhere between "rides by itself" and "weight disappears under way".  Never intended to take on contemporary sport bikes, it's happiest on a two-lane, exploring the relationship between torque, engine braking and the close-ratio 6-speed.  The Le Mans will always be part of the Guzzi story, and the V11 is up-to-date enough to ride without vintage worries.  The green and silver livery recalls their early endurance racers, on which Omobono Tenni took the Isle of Man in 1937.  Rob asks $7,850 for the Tenni, and can be reached at (757) 784-8410.

Three-Tone – 2005 BMW R1100S Boxer Cup Replika

BMW developed and supported the Boxer Cup series in the 2000's to showcase their R1100S, and had a special edition Boxer Cup Replika available toward the end of the run.  Special livery, suspension and components set the editions of 300 apart from the normal -S.  This Jersey native is spotless with low miles for a Beemer.

2005 BMW R1100S Boxer Cup Replika for sale on eBay

Using BMW's well-known 1085cc twin, the R1100S has 98 hp available, with Bosch fuel injection and dual catalysts keeping everything legal.  The "Cup" used extended fork tubes and shortened Paralever torque arm to provide additional lean angle for the track.  Laser provided the dual underseat exhausts, and other Replika parts included a slightly lower 6th gear, 5-1/2 inch rear wheel, carbon head covers, and pillion seat cover in body color.

 

This BCR looks very nice indeed, without even the usual right boot scratches on the seat cover.  Not sure about the whereabouts of the lower fairing, or as BMW likes to call it, the engine spoiler, maybe home in a box.  Nothing in the way of upgrades or options seen or claimed, in the eBay auction:

Only 1 of 200 built in perfect condition
11,000 Miles
No Reserve

 

Time didn't stand still for the R1100S and it was soon eclipsed by the R1200S, HP2, and of course the S1000RR and its special editions.  But it was a re-introduction of the -S for BMW, powerful and neutral handling if not light weight.  The Cup ran from 2001-04, sometimes in support of the GP or Daytona, and sometimes an endurance race of its own, and has been re-incarnated this year on the R nine T.  At least on a more technical circuit, the original BCR would likely dance away from the newer machine...

Salt Lake Slab Side – 1986 Suzuki GSX-R1100

In a bit of reverse mission creep, Suzuki began work on the GSX-R1100R by seeing how similar it could be to their winning 750. The air/oil-cooled machine achieved great power-to-weight and many long burnouts along the way.

1986 Suzuki GSX-R1100 for sale on eBay

Suzuki's 1056cc four uses a two-chamber oil pump with the high pressure side going to the engine, and hot oil coming back from the heads is pumped to the oil cooler by the low pressure side.  The system helps the 125 hp engine stay alive without the complication of water cooling.  The all-alloy chassis is a twin spar, with Full Floater rear monoshock and an electrically activated anti-dive system up front.  Even with full fuel the open class GSX-R stays under 500 lbs, making the back pad on the rider's seat more than an afterthought.

Offered by a Utah collector but not Gary, this GSX-R has a few mods but rather low miles at 9,600.  The Yoshimura-developed NACA ducts are period-correct but beg for the companion airbox, however the owner is using individual K&N filters.  The Supertrapp muffler looks small but can be adjusted for street or strip.  The deal evidently includes a tank protector and rare fairing bra from the way-back machine.  Notes from the eBay auction:

K &N filters and Supertrapp exhaust  makes a great sound , Yoshimura air ducts, 1986 was the first generation GSX-R1100.  Two plastic repairs one in the front fairing left by the windshield very common and in the low fairing right side a little crack was repaired look perfect.  Rest of the panels are original untouched, gas tank is very clean in and out, leather covers are included for gas tank and front fairing very rare.
Very strong engine and fast, runs smooth and steady, beautiful machine.
No noises or smog, fresh oil and new battery, Dunlop tires have plenty of life left.

The GSX-R1100 advertised its business with a tach that started at 3,000 rpm and had the handling to back it up.  The sub-11 second quarter removed any doubt.  Not babied but seemingly not abused, this example could be an exclamation point or the start of a beautiful friendship...

Sling Blade – 1983 Suzuki GSX1100S Katana in Canada

A world away from the usual design-by-committee UJM, Suzuki's original Katana set the stage and riding position for a new generation of road-going sportbikes. This largely original survivor is just across the northern border.

1983 Suzuki GSX1100S Katana ( Canada ) for sale on eBay

 

Designer Hans Muth spent the 1970's bringing aerodynamics and attitude to BMW's R90S and R100RS, and left to form Target Design with partners Hans-Georg Kasten and Jan Fellstrom.  The designers' first commissions were for Suzuki, the GS550M and GSX1100S.  The 1100 brought 4 valves per cylinder and 111 hp to the party, and the Katana's wedge fairing made 137 mph possible.  Changes for 1983 included forged connecting rods and progressive rear springs to accompany the anti-dive forks.  Competition formulas of the day didn't have a place for 1100's, but the Katanas sold well on Suzuki's other successes, and the model name was used until the mid-2000's in the U.S.

 

Waiting for spring in Montreal, this Katana shows 20,000 miles, super clean and factory bodywork in great condition.  Wheels and exhaust have been updated.  From the eBay auction:

Beautiful Katana 1100 with lots of care given to it.  Paint is perfect.  Engine runs super smooth.  New tires.  Original seat in perfect condition.  New exhaust system.  And wider aluminum rims.  (I do not have the stock wheels and exhaust).

 

Largely eclipsed by the GSX-R line-up, the Katanas soldiered on in the showroom providing options for those less track-oriented.  Kind of the Hayabusa of its day, the 1100 Katana was Cycle World's fast machine for 1983, using a half-mile yardstick.  The design got high marks for stability once the stiff suspension was backed out to minimums.  The riding position calling for speed, this Katana could certainly be on the road, but with a little attention could be shown as well...

Gutsy Ghezzi – 2002 Ghezzi-Brian Furia

In operation just since 1995, Ghezzi-Brian has capitalized on Moto Guzzi's long history beginning with the SuperTwin race bike.  Their naked-sport Furia served fans of the brand with a lighter street package which just happened to be a looker as well.

2002 Ghezzi-Brian Furia for sale on eBay

For '02 the Furia used Moto-Guzzi's oversquare 1064cc engine, with 87 hp, 5-speed transmission and shaft drive.  The backbone frame from Moto-Guzzi is updated with Paioli forks and G-B's own monoshock swingarm.  The front end has a Buell-esque rim-diameter disk brake, and the muffler is crafted to echo the silhouette of the oil pan.

Coming out of Virginia, this Ghezzi-Brian has under 6,000 miles and looks complete and undamaged.  The owner states that this particular bike is a pre-production machine, perhaps it was the importer's demo to entice dealers.  From the eBay auction:

-Exotic Italian design, totally stock from Moto Guzzi 1100cc shaft drivetrain
-Lightweight components: naked sport frame, perimeter front rotor, Ohlins shock, carbon fender, hand welded fuel tank & muffler, projector beam headlights
-This 2002 Furia was the prototype & the first model in the U.S. (production began in 2003)
-Velocity Motorcycles received this Furia & one Sport Twin

A long runner in the bespoke European segment, the Furia is still in Ghezzi-Brian's catalogue, and is even available as a kit for an owner to modify their own Guzzi.  The fuel-injected drivetrain and strong chassis are known quantities and a good choice for a custom.  Ghezzi-Brian motorcycles have undeniable rarity, and some neat low-volume touches.  Just the thing for a Guzzi fan with exceedingly good taste.

Best Foot Forward – 2002 Moto Guzzi LeMans V11

The wide Guzzi V-twin is instantly recognizable, the big air-cooled heads only lately fuel-injected and in this case protected by tipover guards.  The longitudinal crankshaft machine has a history going back to 1976, long and stable, if not a lightweight.  This V11 has some miles but looks undamaged and well cared-for.

2002 Moto Guzzi LeMans V11 for sale on eBay

Rather than ground-breaking, the V11 is reverent to Guzzi's past, the layout the same though the frame now supports the engine from the top.  Magnetti Marelli digital ignition and injection help deliver 91 hp and 69 ft.-lbs. torque.  Various wheel sizes have been used on past LeMans, settling on 17-inch front and rear for the V11.  The addictive torque keeps the signature shaft drive 5-speed transmission in the game.

 

The Idaho owner has kept this Guzzi extra nice for the miles, with a Corbin seat and forward foot controls, an unusual but worthwhile mod for those with adult knees.  From the eBay auction:

Excellent condition, Needs nothing, This past spring ( 200 miles ago ) all fluids changed- including brake & clutch, valves adjusted, new spark plugs, new air & fuel filters, throttle bodies & injectors professionally cleaned, Guzzi Tech reflashed the ECU, Eurocycles adjusted the TPS & sync the throttle bodies, Avon tires in very good condition, shifter spring up-date is done, paint is in excellent condition, Moto Tech foot controls, Factory MG Tank Bag, & center stand.

 

A little more GT than SuperSport, up-to-date fuel injection and premium components have made the LeMans V11 is a winning continuation of a venerable model.  The early 2000's found Guzzi making many special models, but the LeMans is just classic.  With very little in the way of applied graphics, the grays and candy red work wonders.  The owner has done some nice mid-life maintenance on the bomb-proof V-twin, and this looks like a great way to catch the European strain of the sportbike affliction...
