MoreBikes is out in Sardinia for the launch of Moto Guzzi’s new V85 TT – and we’ll be bringing you our first impressions of the funky retro adventure machine tomorrow evening, after a day carving corners on the Italian island.
First showed as a concept back in 2017, the new Moto Guzzi V85 TT was widely regarded as one of the most exciting machines to appear from the Italian manufacturer in a while. In fact, it marks the factory’s first foray into the adventure bike market since its 1200cc Stelvio met its demise with the introduction of Euro 4 regulations.
Described as a ‘Classic Enduro’ machine, the new V85 TT blends off-road ability with immediately identifiable Moto Guzzi styling. We’ve just managed to sneak a peak of the production machines in the flesh ahead of the ride tomorrow – and based on first impressions, they look the business.
There are two variants to choose from – either the premium dual-colour edition, which comes with Michelin Anakee rubber and will set you back £11,099, or the standard model which comes with Metzler Tourance tyres and is priced at £10,899.
