In unveiling the new bike, Moto Guzzi said it will cover the gap in the range left by the Stelvio, taking pride of place between the classic V7 and V9 family and the 1400 large cruisers.

Built on a completely new frame, the Moto Guzzi V85 features a 60kW (80hp) twin-cylinder 90° transverse air-cooled 850cc engine.

“It is dedicated to travelling in its purest form, recalling the epic rally raids of the 1980s, a point of reference from which it inherits style, charm and emotion.” – Moto Guzzi

But the bike isn’t all about the past – it features fully digital instrumentation and a front LED headlight/DRL.

  1. Been looking for a good air cooled all-rounder as an alternative to a DR650 and a couple of heavyweight road bikes, and the new V85 looks like it might just fit the bill for road riding and getting off the [not too] beaten track. A bike not quite as big and heavy as the Stelvio would suit many NSW dirt roads and forest tracks. The V85 looks good in the photos and would likely be a far more usable motorcycle than many on Australia’s often rough bitumen and dirt roads. I’m a fan of Moto Guzzi although I’ve not yet owned one and the V7 Special has been tempting but the V85 ticks more boxes particularly the dual sport aspect. Air cooled bikes are few these days and it would be tempting to grab a new V85 just to add to my other air-head bikes. Just needs a small LOUD muffler! Heh heh. Gotta hear that V-twin rumble, especially out in the forest. Hope it does come to Australia.
