  1. Ciao Guest - we've been proud to harbor such wonderful Guzzisti camaraderie since 2005, for FREE. Times have changed, and so have the attitudes and expectations of far too many. Starting Jan 1, 2020, we will likely be shifting to a paid to participate format. You will still be able to read for free. This should alleviate all of the negativity that the free social media channels have created. If you are a donor or customer of ours, you're in, just use the Contact tab above if your account is not already promoted, or you can Upgrade your account once signed in. Or the Donate tab above is another option. We look forward to continuing this service to the Guzzi community, but it is not cheap or easy to host and maintain. We wish you the best for the Holidays and in the New Year.

    I'm thinking a V-Strom would be a more fair comparison..... but of course the V85 has no equal.

    This is the only one I would say... and I have a long list of reasons personally why I’d never own one.

    May I ask if GuzziTech has dyno- runs on the new V85 engine? True HP and torque curves?

    How about a Baja version. Bigger front wheel, more ground clearance.

    Or the opposite, smaller wheels, lowered suspension, lots of coloured LED lights and make a low rider. :wasntme:

    I have a QD exhaust and Y piece on mine. It came with a detachable 25mm muffler which was to quite and didn't produce any sort of throatiness. Without baffle opening was 50mm and to loud. I had a baffle made at 33mm opening, sounds perfect, and runs very nicely.

    I'm all about tan bikes. I always loved the ducati sport classic in that tan and black. This bike is great looking, wonder what they do to make it a "travel" model.

Featuring, as standard, a higher Touring windshield, a pair of very spacious panniers, a set of heated hand grips, a pair of additional LED lights, and the Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia platform that allows a smartphone to be connected to the vehicle, extending the instrument cluster functions.

    That is available now for all V85s. The question is it included with the package and the stated price?

    It sounded like it would (finally) be included... as it should be on all versions really. Silly that they try to charge more for it.

    My wife, Jane and I attended the Motorcycle Live Show in Birmingham, UK today. The new V85TT Travel looks very smart in its new livery.

    A few pictures from the Piaggio stand.

    if anybody else sees this look to see if the bag mounts are the same as for the big aluminum panniers. if so will it be easier to get a leg over these?
