Moto Guzzi has revealed the new V85 TT, and we have to say we’re a bit deflated at the grey paint scheme. Thank goodness the Paris-Dakar-inspired colour will be available too.
The V85 Tutto Terreno will be the first Guzzi model to utilise a new 850 cc, v-twin engine which is expected to make around 80 bhp of power. The same engine is expected to offer several models from the Moto Guzzi stable. The V85 TT features a new tubular steel frame, and uses the v-twin as a stressed member, long travel suspension and an asymmetrical aluminium swingarm, connected to a monoshock.
The Moto Guzzi V85 TT comes with 19-inch and 17-inch spoked wheels, and has been described by the Italian brand as a ‘Classic Enduro’. The new motorcycle is said to draw inspiration from the rally raids of the 1980s, and from Moto Guzzi’s own off-road heritage. So far, details are scarce about pricing and availability.
The V85 TT is expected to be available on sale in early 2019.
