The Audace Carbon will certainly be the Moto Guzzi most used with the “Veloce” engine map, the most responsive and direct of the available three (the “Turismo” and “Pioggia” maps are also available) and the one where the adjustable MGTC traction control system will need to intervene most often. The large twin cylinder engine is the absolute benchmark in its category for engine capacity-performance-consumption ratio thanks to excellent thermodynamic performance. Electronic management is particularly advanced, thanks to the electronic throttle full Ride-by-wire: the system guarantees a fine tuned and accurate throttle control, thereby allowing the engine to return a top shelf, smooth response, without being twitchy in opening and closing. The benefit for the rider translates into top level riding pleasure in any conditions of use.
MG-MP includes the “Grip Warning” function which replicates the indications on traction control operation for maximum visibility and provides information in real time on your riding performance with relation to the road surface conditions. A dedicated indicator light warns in the event of excessive use of available grip. Thanks to the synergistic use of gyroscopes and the information coming from the vehicle, the smartphone becomes a sophisticated instrument to measure the lean angle in turns thanks to specifically developed algorithms developed. The limit thresholds can be set both for lean angle as well as vehicle and engine speed. When these limits are exceeded the relative indicator lights will come on or the virtual dashboard will flash.
