ROCK(S) ‘N’ ROAD(S)
After the success achieved by the V85 TT from critics and the general public since its début, for 2021, Moto Guzzi presents an updated version of its best seller, based on the requests of its fans. The improvements involve primarily the engine. The construction layout is still the exclusive one of all Moto Guzzi bikes currently in production: a 90° transversal, air-cooled V-twin with a pushrod and rockers timing system and two valves per cylinder (intake cylinders in titanium), the pride and tradition of the Mandello Eagle.
The unit now has greater torque at low and medium rpm thanks to optimized lifting of the pushrod and rockers timing cams and a consequent adapting of the engine control electronics.
The new spoked wheel rims now mount tubeless tyres: together, they guarantee about 1.5 kg lower weight, reducing the unsprung masses which benefits the already outstanding riding dynamic.
As for the riding assist electronics systems, two new Riding Modes (Sport, suitable for more sporty riding and Custom, customizable) join the existing three (Strada – Street, Pioggia – Rain, Off-road) to manage traction control, ABS and the response of the Ride-by-Wire throttle. Cruise control and the colour TFT instrument panel also come standard. Using Moto Guzzi MIA, the Moto Guzzi multimedia platform optionally available in the vast range of accessories in the dedicated catalogue, you can connect your smart phone to the vehicle, extending the instrument panel’s functions.
