KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • How does the V100 Mandello's adaptive aerodynamic feature work?

    Moto Guzzi says that the V100 Mandello is equipped with deflectors that automatically adjust depending on the speed and the Riding Mode selected.
  • How does it make riding more comfortable?

    According to Moto Guzzi, the aerodynamic appendages reduce the pressure from the air to the rider by 22 percent.
  • According to Moto Guzzi, the technology behind the V100 Mandello’s adaptive aerodynamics is designed to give the rider better comfort when using the motorbike. The V100 Mandello is equipped with deflectors on the side of its 17.5-liter fuel tank, that automatically adjusts depending on the speed and the Riding Mode selected.

    This ensures better comfort and protection from the wind as the fully raised aerodynamic appendages reduce the pressure from the air to the rider by 22 percent, bringing the V100 Mandello closer to the protection from the air granted by the more voluminous and less sporty tourers.

    The Moto Guzzi V100 Mandello boasts first-rate electronic equipment that includes the Ride by Wire electronic accelerator. It is accompanied by four Riding Modes: Travel, Sport, Rain, and Road.

    Each of the aforementioned riding modes manages three different engine maps, four levels of traction control, three levels of engine brake, and calibration of the Öhlins Smart EC 2.0 semi-active suspension (in the version that includes them as standard).
