It is typical for a Moto Guzzi dealer to focus on the latest technologies when marketing the Italian motorcycle. Two of the best selling segments in modern motorcycles are the modern classic and adventure. The all-new V85 TT is the first motorcycle that will be marketed as the combination of the both the classic and adventure motorcycles. TT in Italian is Tuto Terrano or All Terrain.
Of all the Moto Guzzi brands that are owned by the Piaggio Group, V85 TT includes the technologies that used to be reserved only for Aprilia. This means that V85 TT now includes the 4.5-inch TFT display instead of analogue gauges that can be found on most of the bikes in the Guzzi range.
Other high end components on the V85 TT include the twin 4-piston Brembo, the radially-mounted brake clippers clamping down on the 320mm discs up front, LED lighting with cool daytime running lights that are shaped like the Moto Guzzi eagle logo, 3 rider modes and a switchable ABS and traction control.
Another technology that riders can expect from V85 TT is the choice of wheel sizing with a 19-inch front wheel matched to a 17-inch rear wheel including the largest in class 23-liter fuel tank. The components do not actually indicate that V85 TT is not intended as a serious off-road bike. V85 TT is more of a capable all-rounder.
Many assume that V85 TT is a heavy machine considering that it tips the scales at approximately 230-kilogram wet. However, as your ride progresses, you will become one with the bike and will start to appreciate its strong points. Ride ergonomics is also excellent and designed to fit 95% of the population. According to Moto Guzzi there is still room to improve ergonomics with 3 optional comfort seats. Moto Guzzi guarantees a comfortable ride all day long with minimal aches and pains.
If you are interested on Italian motorcycles, your best option is authorized Moto Guzzi dealer that offers a range of bikes throughout the year. Motorcycles have come a long way from the traditional single motor chain to full-speed machines that are optimized for an exhilarating ride due to recent technological advances.
