Building on the successful V85TT, Moto Guzzi has announced new V9 models: Roamer and Bobber. The Moto Guzzi V9 features a brand new 850cc engine making 65 horsepower and 72Nm of torque. The new bike features an evolved chassis which Moto Guzzi says ‘increase the pleasure and excitement of riding’.
Guzzi’s range might be small with only 5 bikes in the line-up, which includes the V85TT, the V7, V9, California and the MGX-21. All of them feature the iconic V-Twin engine, in varying sizes, and the normal cool custom styling. Both bikes can be purchased in reduced power version in line with A2 restrictions.
The new V9 starts with a brand new 853cc 90degree V-twin engine made in the Mandello del Lario factory. Keeping it simple with air and oil cooling the transverse layout sticks to the formula that Moto Guzzi has perfected over the years, and makes them different to everybody else. With a double cradle chassis made from tubular steel, providing even weight distribution and balance. The frame has been strengthened in the headstock which Moto Guzzi says increases stability and precision. The V9 incorporates ABS and a manually adjustable traction control system which can be disabled as standard specification.
The overall styling has been overhauled with the unique Guzzi look and feel. Keeping to their styling with the short mudguards and cover panels and a short and stout pillion seat. Colour schemes vary between the Roamer and the Bobber with the Roamer having a unique Grigio Lunare colourway highlighting other features. The V9 Bobber has a matt black finish, keeping it very stylish and minimalist.
The dash has been updated with a digital cluster, and full LED lighting throughout the bike. The daytime running light is in the shape of the Mandello Eagle, the Guzzi logo. As with all Guzzi’s, there is a wide array of upgrades and customisations available. For more information on the V9 check the Moto Guzzi website here.
