Classic Italian brand Moto Guzzi unveiled two new models as 30,000 Guzzisti visited the Piaggio-owned company’s Mandello del Lario factory this weekend.
Going on sale next month, the V9 Bobber Sport is a more aggressively styled of the standard V9 Bobber.
With more blacked out components, fork gaiters, drag bars and a much tidier looking solo seat that looks far sleeker than the base model, the V9 takes a very Italian spin on the bobber concept. The Sport also features adjustable Ohlins rear shocks with piggy back reservoirs.
Guzzi bosses also revealed a production representative version of its V85 TT adventure bike. The distinctively styled machine uses (of course) a version of Guzzi’s traditional air-cooled 90° transversely mounted engine, which is mounted in a red painted steel tube frame. The company claims that the engine has been completely redesigned and will be good for around 80bhp, although other details are still a bit thin on the ground. Moto Guzzi say that the TT is ‘the first classic enduro’, although BMW and its R nineT Urban G/S may have something to say about that.
Interested? Moto Guzzi has created a micro site for the new model at http://discoverv85.motoguzzi.com/en/ where prospective riders can sign up for a test ride when it arrives in the country.
Expect to find out more about the V85 TT at November’s EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan.
