Moto Guzzi V85 Now Ready For Production

It’s always the same every time Moto Guzzi announces about a new model on the works. Everyone gets excited and is filled with anticipation. This is the same feeling when for the first time the Moto Guzzi California for sale in the UK was announced to the public. Every one waiting for the news rejoiced. The same feeling is resurrected when the final look of V85 was finally published. The taunting started months ago and the company just keeps on teasing but no one got an idea what it will finally look like.

The only inkling people have is the concept that was revealed during the previous year’s EICMA when Moto Guzzi talked about their plan to develop the V85 TT. Finally, its look was posted on the website of Discover V85 which means that the production version is ready to be manufactured. The best thing about it is that the version shown at the showroom is almost exactly the same as the original concept.

The new model is going to be officially launched at this year’s EICMA which will close the loop since this is the very event where the concept was announced just one year ago. Despite that it might not be seen for months in flesh, Moto Guzzi decided to give their loyal customers the chance to get a glimpse of the adventure bike before finally unveiling it at the event. The model is now ready for production and all the features that were announced about its concept is incorporated in the design but there are some minor changes observed.

The contrast of colours on the frame is the same except for the slight changes on the bike’s head. The coil spring originally matched the yellow tone but it has been changed to black and the length of the exhaust pipe is also longer. There are changes with the design of the hand guard and the shells are no longer in yellow but also in black.

While waiting for this new release, motorbike enthusiasts can check out the Moto Guzzi California for sale in the UK or they can wait for further news in November during an even in Milan where the V85’s price will be revealed.
