congrats, i hope to see you around the area. i went to the kansas wild guzzi rally. i packed 5 pairs of gloves, 2 pairs of shoes in addition to my boots, full rain gear, a spare pair of pants, changes of underwear, a hoodie, cigars, booze, water, snacks and still had room left. camping gear in dry bag on seat. then there is the magic button (cruise). you will love it
I like the red frame but I would also like to see the V85 photoshopped in the colors described above by Huzo.
Congrats on the new bike. I have had mine for two years and loved it so much I bought the Centenario (also from Cadre). Here is when I brought it home and before I started making my usual modifications.The yellow, white, red color was flashy but I think I will like this, more subdued version, even more. Great all around bike in any color though.
I think the 2021 black bodywork would look great with the red frame. That may be the route I go if I get tired of the white/red.
A crappy photo hack, but you get the idea.
How do you like the updated torque delivery?
I have only limited riding time on the new bike as I am installing a lot of modifications right now. So far it seemed to have better punch off the bottom, but I will report back with more after this weekend. I am doing wiring today. I just texted Enzo to ask if there is, and the location of, a blank connector for switched power somewhere in the harness.
I’d be interested in the new ‘sport’ and ‘custom’ riding modes added for 2021. I’ve picked up a barely used 2020 and the only thing I’m having any issue with is the relatively soft throttle response. In some situations, for example blipping the throttle for downshifts, it takes an unusual amount of twist grip movement in an unloaded situation where a cable throttle would be highly sensitive to small movements of the throttle. I’ll get used to it, and really like the bike to ride otherwise: it rides like a slightly heavier cross between an R100GS and a Guzzi, with some ‘modern’ electronics added, for better or worse.
Just to be clear, I am not describing a fueling issue. What I’m describing is the relationship between twist grip rotation and throttle plate movement in Road mode. Many injected bikes with large throttle bodies and cable throttles feel a bit jumpy or oversensitive to the throttle control, particularly at low speed and I suppose in response to this they softened the throttle sensitivity in ‘throttle by wire’ tuning on the V85TT. I think they went a bit too far, and note that this is a manually programmable parameter in ‘Custom’ mode on the 2021 bikes.
I agree that the rotation/travel is a bit much. I find myself having to reposition my hand on the throttle if I don't grab enough when taking off from a stop. Using the Throttle Rocker reminds me to do that.
I’m not trying to belittle your statement egschade, but really...?It’s 90 degrees from fully closed to fully open..(or close to it).Is it because the throttle is too heavy, that you wish the range was less ?
I would think that on a fly by wire system one could wire up a momentary toggle switch if so desired.
