The most powerful on-road machine produced by Gilera in almost a century of history simply defies definition. More than a scooter, here is a new class of twowheeler. Riding a Gilera GP 800 is a totally new and exclusive experience. The power of its amazing 75 bhp engine is tamed by a superbly rigid frame and transmitted to the road by a unique chassis. The Gilera GP 800 offers all the comfort and convenience of a scooter around town, plus the performance of a true sport tourer on the open road. And when stationary, the GP 800’s aggressive beauty simply exudes power and technology.

The Gilera GP 800 is born to amaze. And amaze it does, from the very first glance. The GP 800’s impressive, dynamic and clean lines are inspired by the best Italian motorcycling traditions. The chassis features a robust double cradle, steel tube frame. The 90° V twin engine boasts electronic ignition, 4 valves per cylinder, and liquid cooling. This engine marks a turning point in scooter evolution, and gives the Gilera GP 800 the sort of performance that no other scooter can rival. The GP 800 is designed uncompromisingly, to satisfy the most demanding sport tourer rider.

The Gilera GP 800 is designed for the rider who wants all the practicality of a scooter but longs for the sort of performance and emotions that until now only a motorcycle could hope to deliver. Even urban commuting becomes a whole new, thrilling and satisfying experience. The Gilera GP 800 boasts the unbeatable usability of a scooter, thanks to elegant, stylish and classical sporting lines, great manoeuvrability, automatic CVT transmission with plenty of engine braking, perfect ergonomics and the carrying capacity of the classic under-seat storage compartment.

But the destiny of the Gilera GP 800 is sure to be determined by its unique performance. Power, top speed, and acceleration are all unprecedented, so it’s only natural to look beyond the city for satisfaction. The Gilera GP 800’s advanced engine and chassis really show their mettle on country roads, opening up new horizons for medium and long range touring. On the open road, the excellent protection afforded by the leg shield and electrically adjustable windshield deliver unrivalled comfort for rider and passenger. Motorways to the beach, mountain passes, and twisting country roads – the world in front of the Gilera GP 800 knows no frontiers.

The Gilera GP 800: beyond the scooter.

Everything about the Gilera GP 800 has been designed, developed and made to rule the road. Each individual stylistic choice and technical solution speaks of a revolutionary machine, conceived around the first ever 90° V twin scooter engine, and designed to dominate the world of scooters. The new 839.3 cc engine features liquid cooling,

Magneti Marelli electronic fuel injection, a single cam, 4 valves per cylinder and twin spark ignition. It develops a mighty 75 bhp at the crank with a torque of 76.4 Nm, 95% of which is already available at 3,500 rpm. These specifications are totally unique in the scooter world. On the road they translate into an extraordinary reserve of constantly available power and a uniquely smooth ride. Thanks to CVT (continuously variable transmission) with engine braking effect, urban commuting is effortless and relaxing, with the ideal ratio automatically selected. But when the road leaves the town and opens up, the GP 800’s V twin engine really comes into its own, placing Gilera’s flagship scooter in a class of its own.

The Gilera GP 800 engine features dry sump lubrication, and is secured rigidly to the frame by vibration-damping rubber mountings. Final drive can therefore be entrusted to a robust but sophisticated, Regina Z-ring sealed chain. The exhaust system is totally decoupled from the frame to minimise vibrations. This 2-in-1 system terminates in an aggressively styled silencer with a black heat shield that adds plenty of character to the styling of the GP 800, and emphasises its elegant but sporting nature.

The amazing performance of the GP 800’s V twin engine have been achieved in full respect of the environment. Emissions have been minimised by an advanced closed loop injection system with Lambda oxygen sensor and an exhaust with three-way catalytic converter. Fully integrated control of the electronic ignition system also ensures that the GP 800 conforms to strict Euro 3 standards.

The new twin cylinder power plant has been designed, developed and manufactured entirely in Pontedera, the historical home of Piaggio and one of the world’s most advanced engine development and production centres. This engine is born from the challenge that the Piaggio Group has taken on: to offer an ever more sophisticated customer a product that guarantees performance, reliability and safety while also leading the field in respect for the environment.
