Were you able to sit on the bike on it's wheels ?
How well were you able to reach the ground?
They had them fixed in place, but rear wheel close to ground.  No problem for balls of my feet on the ground, and I'm only 5'-8".  Unlike a Stelvio, i'd have no issue managing this.

Video of motorcycle doing what it's intended to do.

I thought the video was fine.

Did you want booming techno music and strobe lights?

Or, perhaps more cowbell ??

Well then looked to Yamaha with the T7.

I will admit it...Guzzi's promo video is somewhat meh even tho the bike looks GORGEOUS!...

and Yamaha's video got my fired up even tho it will NOT come to the States for now...probably Canada as well.

What was that holiday destination again? Not much adventuring going on there. Look to KTM for adventure bike. 799cc, 180kg, 95HP, 33" seat height. I luv Moto Guzzi, I have 3, but sh-t.

Looks like the TT video is more representative of how the bike will be used.  Still probably more off road in the video than in real life.


**OK NEXT!!!

The TT's been outed and theoretical orders have been made.  Please leak out the next model using the new lump.  The weather is turning to crap...and I'll be "surfing" bike info a bit more now.  So go ahead and show the prototyped blacked out bike and rider tooling around Lake Cumo teasing the spy photogs.  If they have the TT finished enough to be showing and making promotional video, then they have a cobbled up touring(I hope) model in testing mode.

Rocker, Thanks for posting. First time we've had a chance to see it moving. Seems to handle well...maybe a bit squirrely on the gravel road... the rider is up on the pegs.

yep, it's nice.  But I have to say the guy riding the bike really didn't look like he was having much fun.

Excellent video...with some decent 60/40 or 70/30 tires that is going to be an excellent all around bike.

I hope Guzzi hits it out of the park with this model and wins Bike of the Year with the ADV community, bike looks great on road and off road...

Hopefully more videos offroad coming soon!

The bike is advertised as “tutto terreno” (All Terrain).

But you would first have to WANT one..!
If it's tonnage for dollar though, you'd come out ahead with the Stelvio.
No bloody wonder Guzzi can't sell bikes in numbers, every bastard tries to talk every other bastard out of buying a new one. But keep buying big block Guzzies, and when in one year, they've sold 19 units of the V 85 and the whole she bang goes arse up, we can console ourselves by recycling redundant machines that return no money back to the manufacturer.
Now THERE'S a solid business model if ever there was..!

like  some others I would like to see more big blocks but ...This V85 may be the ticket  ...The Stelvio is a great bike but , id love to see a comparison  power to weight etc , overall.
I would bet  the v85 would surprise  eh .. :boxing:

Less all terrain and more all roads, and all the better for it. Just a guess, but I reckon less than 10% of the adventure bikes sold get used on the dirt a great deal, and probably 1% used on the hard core stuff.

If I fitted on it, (I'm 5 foot 2 so thats debatable), and being a 1 bike only guy, it would be a perfect bike for me. If I had the money...which I dont.
