Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer

We can't decide what we think about Moto Guzzi's new 850cc V9 Roamer that's tipped for production in 2016. On the one hand, it looks like a perfectly usable, modest and decent roadster-cum-general hack. But on the other hand, it already looks dated and, in the main, might have been styled at pretty much any time since, say, 1990.


There are few technical details yet. We are, after all, still in the teaser season where the motorcycle manufacturers are all busy talking it up, but saying almost nothing worth listening to. Even the 850cc cubic capacity is unconfirmed. But Moto Guzzi is quoted as promising a completely new V-twin. The weight of the Roamer is said to be sub-440lbs (200kgs). The engine's torque output is, we hear, 47lbs-ft @ 3,000rpm. ABS is a given, and switchable traction control will be somewhere in the mix.
