I do like it ,but grown to like the black motor and drive line. I'm sure that they wanted the new motor to pop. It does have classic motorcycle lines. In the video you can see that the clutch is accessible from the rear of the motor. It is a good looking bike,but is sport touring bikes in demand these days? If they were Honda I would expect a new stelvio next year with this motor. Who knows,maybe a big surprise in November.

I thought it was a foregone conclusion that it was 1000 cc.....(hope it is).

Ahh, yes. 1000cc should make well over 100 HP with water cooling. Happy to see they kept the fins!

I like it a lot. The green one will go nicely with my green v7 sport and green z900rs cafe. I wish that all of these manufacturers would put front fenders on that would protect the front of the engine. Especially ones with radiators.

Yeah, it should be 1000 so that in a couple years they'll come out with the "v100 1200" to go with the v7 850.

I kinda, maybe, sorta, almost think I like it.    A "FendaExtenda" may be available to protect the radiator, etc, from road grime, stones, etc.  Still can't quite get comfortable with the pipes exiting the sides of the heads.  Overall, credit to Mandello for a very nice design and very updated features.  I doubt it will replace my Breva 750, but it certainly has my attention.

I like it.  Interesting that they took a page from BMW (maybe?) and redirected the intake/exhaust.  Maybe from Motus, I don't know...
But that final drive...it's on the WRONG SIDE.  How will we ever be able to make right handers now?

Is it going to cost as much? Not sure about the fake cooling fins the green and silver looks better than the red IMO, the red hides whats going on in the body work. Few Benelli TNT/Tre vibes, the proof will be in the riding and how the motor is tuned. Although pricing I assuming well over what the top of the range V85TT goes for, that's going to put it into some fairly stiff competition from some fairly capable machines.

I've only known and became a fan of the brand thanks to discovering the V7 line and I've only known Moto Guzzi as the "beautiful retro styled" italian brand, and honestly the V100 looks gross.

To the older guzzistas that knew Guzzi when they made similarly styled bikes like the Breva and Lario, is the V100 less "shocking" because you guys knew Guzzi for plastiky bikes?

I really like the design, and am excited to see if I like riding it... and if I can afford it.  I love the two color options, but if I get one, it'll be red.

google translation from one of the italian articles:

The engine, completely new (as it is easy to guess from the rotated cylinders, to improve habitability and ergonomics, and obviously from the liquid cooling) should have a power between 110 and 120 horsepower. But it does not end there: the Mandello will also have several "firsts" - the quickshifter, which has never been seen before on a standard Moto Guzzi - and even active aerodynamics , an absolute novelty in the motorcycle scene. As the speed increases, the windshield rises automatically and, laterally, two flaps open to manage the flows that hit the rider.

If you click on the video settings you can have subtitles that auto translate to English. They're good enough to know exactly what the host is pointing out.

I like it. The color on other bikes was blah. On this one it looks nice. I like the fins on the cylinders. Keeps the classic look.

I'm just a bit worried about the headers. I hope they come out with some really good engine guards.

Cylinders look tall enough for a true OHC or is it a high cam?   :popcorn:

I personally think it is very good looking. Not some behemoth. I'll bet the green color scheme is a knockout up close and personal. Sadly, I've aged out, and have my "wind up" bike, or I'd be a player.

Not 100% sold on the design BUT it is a 10000000000000000% better than some of the newer bikes that are pumping out on the market right now.

So far it is a + in my book.

This is precisely the problem that MG created upon themselves—they began to become stale, when they used to be innovative.
My heart always leans toward classics, but a moto company that used to be relevant as a modern bike builder that now only caters to vintage styling will bury its own grave (unless it’s some East Asian brand stuck in the times but can’t afford to become updated).

Vintage styling is a fad that comes and goes in strength. Cafes and scramblers see their days then hide back into their respective catalogs. This re-entry back into stylish modern performance is a great thing for the brand. It means continued relevance and refreshing appeal to the motorcycle buyers at large.
