TOUR READY MOTO GUZZI V85 TT TRAVEL IMMINENT
New V85 TT version highlights the grand touring qualities of the V85 TT
Following the success the V85 TT, the first classic travel enduro combining sophisticated and evocative Moto Guzzi style with modern technology and performance, Moto Guzzi presents the Travel version, ready to take to the road thanks to its complete dedicated range of equipment. Moto Guzzi has listened to the requests of Guzzisti, creating a V85 TT version that is prepared as standard with a selection of essential adventure touring accessories.
The Moto Guzzi V85 TT Travel is due to arrive in dealerships in August with an RRP of $21,690 plus on-road costs.
Moto Guzzi V85 TT reflects a construction philosophy in which simplicity, practicality and handling is dedicated to adventurous travels, a true Moto Guzzi legacy, and now something that the Travel version further extends.
The standard equipment for the Travel, featuring accessories that are all available in the catalogue, includes the higher Touring windshield, offering the rider greater air protection, thanks to a 60% larger surface area, as well as two lightweight “urban” style panniers with aluminium inserts specifically designed alongside the V85 TT itself. The panniers stand out for their significant capacity (37 litres for the right-hand case, which can hold a full-face helmet, and 27.5 litres for the left).
Also included as standard are the heated hand grips with buttons already incorporated in the original left-hand switch block and a pair of additional LED lights. The range of special equipment is rounded out with Moto Guzzi MIA, the multimedia platform that allows the rider to connect a smartphone to the vehicle, extending the functions of the instrument cluster.
The Moto Guzzi V85 TT Travel is offered in the exclusive Sabbia Namib colour: the grey frame is paired with the matte colour of the chassis, while the tank and side panels are enhanced with dedicated graphics. Michelin Anakee Adventure tyres underline the adventure touring attitude.
Well proportioned and far from prohibitive in size, it can be used by riders of any level or experience with an 830mm seat height and is narrow in girth to allow freedom of movement. The V85 TT mounts a 23-litre fuel tank able to handle a range of more than 400 km.
The Moto Guzzi V85 TT is created from a brand-new technical base. The tubular structure exploits the engine as a load-bearing element that ensures the necessary stiffness to guarantee efficiency and riding enjoyment on the road, as well as optimum balance during light enduro use. The V85 TT mounts a new Moto Guzzi engine with the same exclusive construction framework seen across all Moto Guzzi models currently in production, specifically an air-cooled transverse 90° V twin with OHV distribution and two valves per cylinder, the pride and tradition of the Mandello Eagle.
Engine capacity is 853 cc, thanks to a bore to stroke ratio of 84 x 77 mm. The most modern of all engines in the Moto Guzzi range, is able to deliver a maximum power of 80 HP, as well as an impressive maximum torque value of 80 Nm at 5,000 rpm, with 90% of the torque already available at 3,750 rpm, in keeping with the tradition of the Mandello twin, which has always offered excellent drive even at very low revs. This is the first Moto Guzzi small block engine that can easily reach 8000 rpm, an aspect that showcases its modern and exuberant nature.
For the V85 TT Travel to satisfy Guzzista in their daily riding as well as in their touring and adventurous off-road riding, Moto Guzzi has designed a complete range of standard electronic equipment for maximum travel enjoyment. To make life on board easier and safer, Moto Guzzi introduces three different riding modes on the V85 TT: Road, Rain and Off-road. Each of these Riding Modes corresponds to a different engine mapping and a different calibration of the MGCT traction control (which can be disabled) and ABS, as well as a different response from the Ride-by-Wire throttle control.
