It is definitely not possible to leave the seat and stand up. This is something I do relatively often on my bike. The V9 does not allow to simply stand up as the pegs are nearly below the handles. Because of the relative position of pegs and handles and the low seat you sit a bit leaned backwards. The wind does not make it better. Another arrangement of the handlebar (lower, perhaps different risers) could make it better. But you sit very near the bar.
A little sad to see the first couple of ride reports from wg members somewhat confirming some of the handling reports of journos. Yes, it's a cruiser but usually Guzzi cruisers are actually praised for their surprisingly great handling. I'm not sure whether to attribute this fact to these getting compared more to the new Bonnies or even the V7 rather (2 standars) than say a Bolt or 883 which are maybe(?) closer in comparison as per what it is?
V9 LeMans.. although I have one too many motorcycles now.
29.5 in. (750 mm), on Bobber 29.3 in. (745 mm)
I think we're testing different reports or bringing in preconceptions with us cause I'm not hearing what you're hearing in the OP's or especially AZguzzi's ride report.AZ said nothing negative.Fossil just said he could feel a difference with the large front wheel and that he scraped in a tight turn. And even then I wonder about technique (shifting weight etc since he seems to have some ergonomic incompatibilities.<shrug>
It is something different for a different sort of rider. I regard this a good thing.
A scrambler or mild enduro with this mill would be nice. Because the throttle response is so clear and defined.
I am 6'+ and I don't like to be cramped when riding. The V9 gives me the leg room I want and a comfortable seat. I am cramped when riding my EV because of where the foot controls are. The Roamer is wonderfully comfortable ergonomicly. I would like some kind of luggage option and a windscreen too. After those get fitted I'll tour Europe like a gypsy!😁Tom
...I came with the preconception that the V9 Roamer in a way is the successor of the V7. In this form it is not. It is something different for a different sort of rider. I regard this a good thing.
The difference could be that I am what we call in German "Sitzriese" - long upper body, long arms.
They are double-walled. The time of blue manifolds are gone...sight! There can be no doubt: the craftmanship of this thing oozes quality. I could not find one thing that was not first class - the armatures, all the fittings, the wheels, the hand gear,.....Only LED - light is missing.
Did you find any sign of grease any where??
Grease? That thing was brand-new! It is as clean as my Stone is for 3 years now.
If anyone knows how to apply lube its Matt!
I like the front end of the Roamer with the back end of the Bobber.I'd call it the Robber.
