Moto Guzzi introduces the all-new V9; fun, light, painstakingly crafted medium engine capacity custom, heir to more than forty years of custom heritage.
Moto Guzzi V9 opens up a new product and engine capacity segment in the Mandello del Lario range and is designed in two completely different versions. The more conventional and classic version is called the V9 Roamer, and picks up the sceptre left behind by the legendary Nevada, part of the range for more than two decades and popular because of how user-friendly it was for riders of all ages, male or female. The V9 Bobber represents the darker, more sport-oriented soul of Moto Guzzi, standing out with total black look and large tires mounted on 16 inch rims.
The two new Moto Guzzi V9’s are characterized by exceptional construction quality and painstakingly crafted details: from the weld points on the new frame to the paintwork on the metal tank, Moto Guzzi spared no effort raising the bar to set new quality standards, using more noble materials such as aluminum. The overall reduced dimensions, along with the reduced saddle height, make it easy to ride and control even at a standstill, also aided by the overall weight of the V9, coming in at just 440 lbs, a true record in the category.
Such a sturdy, lightweight and fun chassis combines with a Moto Guzzi 850cc, two valve, transverse 90° V-twin engine, completely new and designed to increase elasticity and torque to top levels. In fact, it develops 46 lb-ft (62 Nm) torque at just 3,000 rpm in order to guarantee character, ease of use and quick response from low rpms.
The standard equipment that comes on the two Moto Guzzi V9 machines is plentiful and includes ABS, adjustable traction control (which can also be disabled), immobilizer, USB port as well as new and complete instrumentation on a single, circular dash.
