Moto Guzzi has said that the engine on the 2021 model produces more low and mid-range torque thanks to "optimised lifting of the pushrod and rocker timing cams and a consequent adapting of the engine control electronics." While the older bike made 80hp and 81.3Nm from its 853cc, air-cooled, transverse V-twin, it now makes 75hp and 82Nm. The engine has also been tuned to meet Euro 5 (BS6) emission norms.
