MOTO GUZZI V85 TT - A MOTO GUZZI STEP TOWARDS ITS OWN FUTURE, A TRIBUTE TO TRAVEL IN ITS PUREST ESSENCE, DEDICATED TO MOTORCYCLISTS WHO DON'T STOP WHEN THE ASPHALT ENDS.
THE 80 HP TWIN, A NEW TECHNICAL PLATFORM AROUND WHICH MOTO GUZZI WILL DEVELOP A NEW FAMILY OF MOTORCYCLES
Motorcycle Guzzi has been producing authentically Italian motorcycles since 1921. Almost one hundred years of tradition and passion; almost a century of magnificent motorcycles always built in Mandello del Lario, combining the best technologies and the most precious Italian manufacturing. The next milestone for the Aquila is to celebrate the 2021 milestone with an ever wider range of motorcycles.
V85 TT is the motorcycle that was missing in an increasingly homologated market, dedicated to travel in its purest conception, which recalls the epic raids of the 80s, a reference world from which it inherits style, charm and therefore emotion, but which is born to tackle both the everyday road and the long haul according to the most current needs.
In its version as a traveler, the V85 TT is a new and original proposal that combines stylistic references to the golden age of motorcycle adventure with the contents and functionality of a modern travel enduro and is part of the natural evolution of the Larian brand and its motorcycles.
Traveling to live, V85 TT is adventure every day - Moto Guzzi boasts a solid off-road tradition: the first statements came at the Six Days of Regularity in 1939 held in Austria, where Moto Guzzi participated with the GT 20, winning four gold medals. The real season of regularity continued in 1957, with the Lodola Regolazione and then with the Stornello Regicità in 1962. Strong in this tradition, Moto Guzzi faced the Paris-Dakar in 1985 with the V65 Baja and the following year with the V75 Baja. , strictly derived from the production models, appreciated for their lightness and for the characteristics of the powerful and reliable engine.
V85 TT is dedicated to those who, while not stopping dreaming Dakar Rally, aspires to a motorcycle that restores the spirit of adventure in everyday journeys. Moto Guzzi prefigures a modern bike, complete in equipment and with a strong character, but also a pure and essential bike in the forms that arise directly from Moto Guzzi history.
Style: V85 TT is the Classic Enduro - The design represents the meeting point between technology and functionality with a classic Moto Guzzi style, conceived to last over time so as to define the V85 TT as the Classic Enduro dedicated to touring.
Proportionate in its dimensions that are anything but prohibitive, accessible by riders of all stature and experience, narrow at the waist to allow freedom of movement, the V85 TT boasts an optimal rider and passenger accommodation. No compromise was made at the expense of comfort and habitability, resulting in a comfortable bike for two, with the panniers installed on the frame structure. The design of the tank is a reference to the tradition of Moto Guzzi bikes set up for African raids. In line with the Guzzi history are also the high front fender and the beautiful double front headlight, stylistic / functional solutions already present on the NTX 650 from 1996 and the Quota 1000 from 1989. Modern technological elements - such as the fully digital instrumentation and the series of LED DRL lights of the front headlight - thus combine with the highly classic styles of the off-road world.
Character, lightness and ease - Moto Guzzi's expertise in building superfine chassis is also confirmed on the V85 TT. The chassis is completely new; pursuing the objectives of lightness, rationality and accessibility, it is made of steel tubes and exploits the particular anchoring of the engine to create a rigid structure that returns on the one hand precision and rigor on the road and on the other strength and the right feeling in off-road driving . The beautiful asymmetrical aluminum swingarm has a curved arm on the left side, useful for drawing a very linear exhaust pipe trend, in order to minimize lateral dimensions. The right arm of the swingarm instead houses the new cardan transmission. The monoshock directly connects the frame to the right arm of the swingarm, a solution that facilitates access to the hydraulic and spring preload adjustments, freeing up space for the exhaust system layout. The suspension offers a very generous wheel travel for satisfactory off-road use, also thanks to the engine's high ground clearance, as well as ensuring comfort on the most common roads.
A new engine, a classic of the future - A new Moto Guzzi engine makes its debut on the V85 TT. The construction scheme is the proprietary and exclusive one of all the Moto Guzzi bikes of current production: it is in fact an 90 cc air-cooled 850 ° transverse V-twin engine that expresses 80 HP of power. It is an engine that, in full Moto Guzzi philosophy, is a candidate to be a classic in the near future, ensuring rewarding performance on every route, as well as guaranteeing great character and the usual and spectacular shot right from low revs.
The technical platform of the V85 TT, including its mechanics - as always enhanced inside the vehicle body, being deliberately left exposed in all its beauty - represents the technical basis for the development of a series of new motorcycles. A family of medium displacements, with different uses, united by a strong character, generous performance and a typically Moto Guzzi style.
