Looks ideal to me if it has Roller Tappets, well covered if you done your homework. Doesn't hurt to ask the seller, otherwise may cost $2K.
It probably started out with flat tappets being pre 2012https://www.grisoghetto.com/t5879-the-definitive-guide-to-rollerisation

Beautiful bike with some high quality and expensive updates. If it has been changed from flat to roller tappets I'd say that price is about right. Lots of info on the internet about the flat tappet problem. And some good write ups about how to do it yourself. The issue is the tappets had a coating that was supposed to last forever and prevent wear ... but the coating wears off and then the metal tappets start wearing. Seems they all do that just at various wear at various miles. Meaning, some with 10k miles are worn a lot and others at same mileage are just starting to wear. For me, my biggest concern is all the coating and worn off metal from the tappets getting into the oil system ... where does it all go, what issues does that cause, etc. In the past the parts were ~$1200 and the labor was ~$1200.
The over/under for a low milage 2013 with rollers from the factory is $6K U.S.Roller conversion? I'd rather not...Three bolts take off the wing, six more remove the valve cover and the mystery is solvedFlats Rollers
Bought the same bike used at about the mileage back in 2016. Still loving it today! I'll bet a nickel, however, this one still has the flat tappets (as did mine). If you can get through the dealer route still it's about $500 in labor. The good news is this bike will probably only need the less expensive kit, so if you can do it yourself it won't be that expensive. Last I read they were around $1k?He probably bought it with the Mistral can on there from MI and the suspension bits from Guzzitech are the only mentioned add ons. The cannister is still on so you have someone who left it stock and that's real good for buying used. I'd be happy to buy mine again; you just need a plan for those flatties.
Oh, and it's GRiSO.One "s".
Bottom-line: A fabulous, modern Guzzi....tappet issue aside. Love the color and brown seat also!Take $$$ CASH $$$ and make yourself a deal....as they said "OBO" - Or Best Offer...
They ARE a thing of beauty.
Couldn't agree more. One of my concern is ( believe it or not ), if i ever own one, I may not be able to do justice to this beautiful bike in terms of taking care of it. Don't get me wrong I spend time, effort on my bikes, but also i know that I am lazy/negligent/busy occasionally, at least compared to some of other bike owners.
