Looks like an old Honda tank, better looking.
Are you guys high?Itís the same v9 tank they started with!Paint doesnít actually change the molecular structure off steel.
I sometimes have a hard time keeping up, and certainly have not been paying attention - but do the latest V7's and the V9's share the same powertrain ?
The V9 joins the list of Guzzi's that don't make sense to me, like the Griso, and I owned a Tenni green Griso. I fail to see the market for the V9 even if I like it. The market for the V9 seems to be this: those that will pay a premium for a beautiful, old-looking, slow and light motorcycle with shaft drive, but don't want the better looking V7. I personally don't consider the V9s or V7s old looking, or slow. They are classically styled bikes with excellent build quality. Not like these modern insectoid looking bikes from some of their competitors. Ya, they're not the fastest bike in the neighborhood but they are deceptively quick. They aren't track bikes but you'll never be left behind on regular street riding. Long distance interstate travel isn't their forte. Best to stick to state highways and B roads.
I don't know man, are you sure you want to say that?There are plenty of folks on this board who own and really like their MGx and Nevada's. I mean, if we were sitting around a camp fire, with a group and there were a couple Nevada riders there, would you still say that out loud?

Best case scenario the V9 eats into V7 sales. Worst case scenario the V7 eats into V9 sales.Fun fact: in 2021 Honda sold about 100x more new motorcycles in North America than Moto Guzzi did.
Most of you lads realize our own M Herson scribes for one of those-correct? Monthly.
1. Guzzis don't make sense in a mass marketing McDonald's kinda way - that's why most of us are here.2. "premium" - ? - Really, I bought 3 of my 4 at a pretty steep discount, but even then if I compared the MSRP to other brands they were always competitive.3. The subjective "old-looking" or "slow" is just that, subjective and relative and well, again since similar to competition mostly irrelevant. The look and feel and other characteristics are what attract those who buy. 4. The Honda comment is just completely irrelevant. I don't think even Piaggio has any intention of Guzzi being a Honda. Who gives a crap what Honda sells? It's once a decade that they build ANYTHING that even remotely interests me and they've never seen a dime of my money on a new bike. Vive la differenceAnd seriously if I wasn't at max occupancy on the garage I'd have bought a V9 by now. It IS different from the V7 in ergos and it WAS different in engine feel (that might be changed I haven't ridden the EU5 version of the 9 yet, but the earlier version was BETTER than the V7 for me).
