    I guess I'm late to notice this, but I'm a bit disappointed to see that Moto Guzzi doesn't have at least one upright big block. Yes, you can still get that great 8V motor in a cruiser, but as a guy that likes his feet underneath him, there isn't anything for riders like me. The Griso was a thing of beauty even if it needed to figure out what it was (touring bike wheelbase and weight, sportbike power and components, weird ergos). The Stelvio and Norge both seemed like solid designs to me even if they were a generation behind due to their weights and lack of electronics.

    Is a new Euro 5-7 big block in the works, or is MG sticking to small blocks for its standards? The V85 suggests the company isn't content to just be a "heritage" company and make V7's and cruisers until the end of time.

    This has been well covered here. The future seems to be the small block motor from here on out. Until I pull the cylinder from a V85TT to see if they set it up for a bigger bore, that's all we have for now... however, that's the reason that I'm doing my custom builds; https://gtmotocycles.com/pages/builds-collection -- always surprised to see how few know of them since I launched the brand Sept '18.
