As described by Moto Guzzi…
The new “Quattrovalvole” is the most evolved V 90 twin in the Moto Guzzi range. Even die-hard enthusiasts would not recognise this new engine that features components and performance characteristics never before seen in a production Moto Guzzi machine.
The new engine features a chain-driven single overhead camshaft per cylinder that operates two intake and two exhaust valves inclined respectively at 15.5° and 16.5°.
The highly sophisticated new engine now houses 563 new components specially designed to reduce weight and friction between moving parts and was created through advanced studies into the disciplines of thermodynamics and fuel supply. The final results provide an engine made up of 75% of new components with improved performance, reliability and flexibility characteristics that set new standards in quality. Among the most important new components are the 55% stiffer crankshaft and a new system of ducting oil to the bearings, 3-segment pistons cooled by oil jets on the casing and extremely light valves with 5 mm stems held by conical section springs that eliminate resonance and power loss at high revs.
Lubrication and cooling are looked after by two coaxial pumps that have drastically reduced engine clutter and are activated by a series of gears. These pumps carry oil in ducts that are separated from the cylinder heads to the exhaust valve seats where temperatures are at their highest. A new more compact block was designed so as to accommodate these new components and this unit now sits on an integral front support on bearings. The rear support features a new flange and more efficient oil feed system.
The most seductive element of the new “Quattrovalvole” is without any doubt the modern design of the cylinders that are more compact and feature cooling fins aimed at the on-coming flow of air. As part of the new project, the rocker covers have been redesigned and apart from “Quattrovalvole” logos, feature a “floating” system that further adds to the quietness of the timing system operated by Morse chains and fitted with hydraulically operated chain tensioners.
Fuel feed too has seen significant modifications in terms of now having 50 mm throttle bodies and new Marelli IWP 189 injectors. Needles to say, the six-speed gearbox is a gem of engineering. The gears are quiet and finding neutral is easy thanks to the fitting of a soft silent single plate clutch.
