Moto Guzzi V85 concept launched – EICMA Tuesday, 7th November, Milan. So, this is what Moto Guzzi was hiding up its sleeve. Introducing the Moto Guzzi V85 – a retro enduro/adventure motorcycle, that takes its styling cues from classic rally bikes of the 1980s.
Moto Guzzi V85 Retro Enduro
“The V85 is dedicated to those who, while never ceasing to dream of Dakar, yearn for a bike that revives the spirit of adventure on their daily journeys.”
The robust V85 is designed for those seeking adventure. And, it plugs a gap in Moto Guzzi’s range (previously filled by the Stelvio) which has not been updated to meet EURO4. That’s a good thing as the V85’s styling is much more in keeping with the spirit of Moto Guzzi design.
MOTO GUZZI V85 – ALL-NEW POWER UNIT
The V85 is powered by an all-new 850cc, 80hp engine – mounted in the characteristic ‘Guzzi’ transverse V-twin configuration. Moto Guzzi is promising that it will be using this engine unit, to power a new family of motorcycles.
As an ode to customisers around the world, Moto Guzzi has released special editions for the V7 III. In addition, the V9 Bobber and Roamer also get high-grade components and comfort updates; all elegantly finished.
