I would love to see one in Guzzi red with satin black frame and silver anodised wheels.
Could stand side by side with a Multistrada without looking like it was trying to copy, but the subliminal suggestion is that it's from the same family and a viable alternative.
You need these ideas to be planted in your head without you being aware, and then you think they are your own and it becomes your opinion that you're then prepared to defend.
That's how fashions and desires are born.

The bike looks nice and all, but it seems a lot like the GS from the pre-Paralever days, some thirty years ago. The parallelogram rear suspension was designed specifically for the GS to remedy shaft-effect which adversely put weight on the front wheel during acceleration, rather than the opposite, which is especially critical  in a dirt environment.

I really think that white with the red frame and accents looks great. Adding the Trax boxes really drives home that Guzzi is offering what I have heard many ask for, a slightly smaller Stelvio. If this thing has the power between the small block and the CARC bikes (like they are saying), and carries less than 500 lbs fully kitted out, looks like this could be a winner.

And I like the dirt bike fender as opposed to a regular fender with a beak coming out from a mini fairing. And I'm not a beak hater either. I really like the looks of that white.
The best part of riding a motorcycle is to tilt the horizon and to lift the front coming out of a corner and to drift the back end powering thru loose dirt and to catch a little air topping a hill and... yeah it's all good!

A few years ago I dreamed of a bike similar to this.

I don't know my exact situation for the next few years, but if this comes out close to the way it was presented (Ohlins are back eh Guzzi?!) then maybe I'll be a buyer.

I'd like to be. :)

That looks great. I would be happy with 70-75hp.  Cruise control would be nice.

I would like an rev limiter of at least 7,800.  My one complaint on my V7iii is the low rev limiter and need to shift sooner.

 I think the Roamer would have been good name for the V85. Maybe they can change names and really confuse people.

The V85 is a great idea methinks. I can see the engine being used in v7, v9 frames and in various guises in the prototype frame. Here's one photoshop rendering that has got a lot of positive comments on facebook.

As long as you're at it, Guzzi, build and market a similar bike with an 8v big block.  Surely, you can make the 1151cc engine Euro4 compliant.  Or just take the big leap and build it around the 1400cc big block.  I get it, Guzzi ........ you've gone small block crazy.

I find it interesting to see indications that Piaggio/Guzzi is following Ducati's engine development lead, about 30 years later...  By that I mean developing the cheap 'small block' engine of the line to produce more power, while downplaying the future of more expensive to produce 'big block' design.  Ducati did the same thing with their belt drive engine that had started out as a cheap, low power 500 cc engine and eventually ended up winning Superbike races in much developed form.

I think the V85 desperately needs torque reactive rear suspension but I think if it had it, and could also be built to sell at 'small block' pricing, lower than the Stelvio, it would sell.  The same is true for possible derivatives using the uprated small block engine to reduce the price, making the bikes more accessible - like Ducati did in the 90s with the Monster etc.

I really liked the yellow one I've seen the pictures of. Put on some good road tires (I don't get off the path) it it looks great to me. Wonder the seat height?

Is it possible to do satin black frame, no bash plate and un painted engine with polished rocker covers ?
Seems that Guzzi are also trying to design "feature" out of the image and accentuate bland mono tone.
But that's getting mighty close. I've yet to see an image like what I just asked about (obviously), but I've the feeling that it would be all I'd need to buy one today.
Love the stock high pipe. Just add your own Termignoni and spoked wheels with polished rims...

Great idea guys!  If there is one thing we don't see enough of on the internet, it is Photoshopped bikes that don't exist!
If you owned Guzzi, and you knew every man and his dog wanted a given colour, wouldn't you oblige them ?
These people are screaming out to Guzzi what they are prepared to take from the showroom floor ! We know they bloody well don't exist, but why not !
Paul Harris (Corsa Italiana) told me there were only 3 Red Norge's in G.B.
Yet everyone wanted a Red one and went elsewhere for something else when he (for some reason) couldn't supply.
 I would make them in Baby Shit Brown if I thought I could sell them all...
Oh and BTW..
If they existed... there'd be no need to photo shop them, you could go out in your shed and jump on the one you just bought !
Scuzzy, I'm off to put a deposit on my Moto Guzzi Ibrido.
Have it washed and brought to my tent, we don't wish to be disturbed !!

I hate this “everyone’s a bike designer” photoshop junk. Pretty soon it becomes obscured and we ask “would the real bike please stand up?”  Colors??  Who cares as it sounds like a bunch of girls shopping for undies. I hate having to hunt down the real concept through all the wannabe crap that’s being thrown around.  :undecided:
