    Fascinating! Never heard of such a thing. I'll be going a down a rabbit hole of reading today.

    BTW - I can't wait to see what happens with the v85tt when you get your hands on it, I'm just as excited for that as I am for the bike itself. I hope you'll do a review for us, video or text.

    "I imagine they scrapped the bike after this shoot as Guzzis aren't very waterproof as we all know.".... Touche!

    Any word on pricing and availability in the US? I've been trying to keep an eye out but the info seems to show up here first.

    My guess is Q2 or Q3 for $11,990 or $12,990. If it's much more than that, it won't sell here until it gets incentivised.

    Dang, I was hoping it would drop in February, but I suppose that's probably Europe only. Are they waiting until the last day of EICMA to officially confirm price?

    I'm sold.

    830mm seat height, perfect. Looks, perfect. 21 Liter tank, adequate. 80 HP, perfect. ~230 Kgs wet weight, perfect.

    I was sold the moment I saw it and I'm pretty much sold even more now that the specs are out.

    Can anyone just confirm if it has fully adjustable electronic suspension or is it going to be manually adjusted? I'm speaking about the V85TT Elegante (?).

    Can I install these for my V7 or is it meant more for an offroad use? I know it says "for offroad use only", but so do most exhausts.

    It’s on the floor at IMS Long Beach. You can swing a leg over too. A taller V9 it is. Small compared to the Stelvio, and dry weight (no fuel, only a 5 gallon tank) of 485 lbs they say.

    It is. I wouldn’t expect delivery here until mid/late Summer 2019. You may see it early next year.

    Really? Damn that's even better than I thought it would be. If it's the V85TT Eleganté with cases at the price you mentioned that would be absolutely brilliant.

    I'm just wondering why they haven't implemented a hydraulic clutch...

    More cost cutting just like the tube tire set up I would imagine...

    But yes, would be awesome with hydraulic set up...

    Oh well, there are always aftermarket especially how Guzzi priced the V85TT...

    Still in awe with the price with bags!

    Yeah, I think they're REALLY trying to make this one sell by the tens of thousands, even if they're making a "marginal" profit out of each of them.

    So with LED fog lights and engine protection, somewhere around $14k? Still VERY reasonable in comparison to the competition. I see this V85TT putting Moto Guzzi in the spotlight.

    Hopefully the ride reviews turn out as good as it looks. Please don't disappoint us.

    You and me both...and hundreds behind me...

    Some friends who has GS and KTM were watching the promo video last week and was commenting how bouncy it was over the sand...

    Hopefully that is one of the few "faults" of this bike...really want that engine to succeed!!!!!!!
