2021 Moto Guzzi V85 TT in Giallo Mojave colour scheme

LOCKDOWN may be in full sting but our friends in Italy are keeping busy all the same.

Moto Guzzi has updated the impressive V85 TT and V85 TT Travel models, with a new engine, new spoked wheels and tubeless tyres.

The engine is a 90° transversal, air-cooled V-twin with a pushrod and rockers timing system and two valves per cylinder, with titanium intake cylinders. The unit now has greater torque at low and medium rpm thanks to optimised lifting of the pushrod and rockers, timing cams and a change to the engine control electronics.

The TTs also get an additional two riding modes – Sport and Custom – in addition to the three it has on the outgoing models – Street, Rain and Off-road. These modes all work with Ride-By-Wire throttle, traction control and ABS and should make an already impressive bike that little bit more desirable.

Other standard features include cruise control and a TFT dash, and one nifty option is a multimedia feature that allows you to connect your phone to the bike for extended functionality.

The TTs will come in three new colours – Nero Etna, Giallo Mojave and Rosso Uluru.

The V85 TT Travel gets all the new upgrades of the V85 TT, but also features a Touring windscreen, large side panniers, a pair of supplementary LED lights and adjustable heated hand grips, as well as the Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia platform.

Elsewhere in the Guzzi range, the V9 family gets an extensive upgrade.

Like the TTs, there’s a brand-new engine at play in the V9 Roamer and V9 Bobber, which features wide tyres and minimalistic look.

The new 850cc, 65hp and 73Nm engine is similar to the unit on the new V85 TT, and in the case of the V9s is supported by a revised frame that has been strengthened in the headstock area to increase stability and riding precision.

Rubber-mounted footpegs are new, as is ABS, and an adjustable MGCT traction control system.

The V9 Bobber has a new saddle with a minimalist look, aluminium side panels and a short front mudguard. The Bobber also gets a new digital instrument cluster and a full LED lighting system.

Again, the Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia system is available as an option.

The V9 Roamer is available in the unique Grigio Lunare colour scheme, while the V9 Bobber comes in the entirely matt finished Nero Essenziale colour.
