Italian motorcycle makes Motto Guzzi introduced two new models having a brand new 850cc engine. The V9 family is an upgradation in terms of style and design from V7 family. They are relatively big and sturdy bikes which have an aroma of Italian design in it. The V9 Roamer and Bobber are an evolution of the Nevada 750, which is one of the longest running model from Guzzi’s. It takes ahead the tradition of the Guzzi, that is air-cooled transverse twin tradition.
Although with the new Euro 4 norms coming that is officially dubbed as “ the death of air-cooled engine”. Moto Guzzi is putting up a challenge by unveiling of air-cooled engine’s. Manufacturers are not banned from making air-cooled engines, but to comply to the ne emission las they have to be quite underpowered. Thus the twin engine produces signignically low HP of just 55.
Under the beastly body lies a perfectly crafted technology. A collection of electronic systems including a two-channel ABS, traction control, immobilizer and a USB port under the steering head. There is an option of having a Multimedia Platform that connects wirelessly to your smartphone .It also gives access to lots of information as fuel consumption & trip data.
The difference between the two bikes is outwardly cosmetic. The Bobber has a more aggressive design that gives a more aggressive riding position with weight bias to the front, and the Roamer is a basic cruiser model. There is no information on pricing or availability currently, Moto Guzzi plans to launch it in the coming year across globally.
