Moto Guzzi and exclusivity go hand in hand on most occasions. The production version of V85 TT is another example of how brands can use their expertise to create really impressive products with praiseworthy finish and loads of practicality. The concept was first seen at EICMA 2018 with Tutto Terreno (all terrain) moniker and thus, gets TT in its name. Similar to most adventure bikes, Moto Guzzi V85 TT comes with large fuel tank, adjustable windscreen and spoke wheels with dual-sport tires. The paint scheme seen here is equally fascinating, using a perfect balance of dual tone fuel tank, red frame and protectors and silver finished under-body protectors.

The shaft drive machine comes with a reworked V-Twin engine from V9, producing 80 hp of maximum power to the rear wheel. The front USD forks and rear monoshock are a perfect combination for all tough terrains, further getting support from the wired wheels with 19-inch front and 17-inch rear diameter. Moto Guzzi is expected to launch the same in the UK early next year for £11,000 (INR 10.50 lakh approx) while the Indian market may take a longer duration for the introduction of this model. Moto Guzzi is a part of the Piaggio group and retails through the Motoplex dealership network in India.

Electronic features on the V85 TT includes traction control, ABS and full-color TFT with Bluetooth connectivity and cruise control settings. It rivals Triumph Tiger 800 and BMW F850GS in this segment. The limitation of Moto Guzzi bringing most products through the CKD route may not let them price V85 TT in the right slot. The fit and finish around the engine bay, along with the carefully selected color pattern, make this motorcycle a worthy competitor of the endurance riding segment. It comes with a huge fuel tank, leaving buyers a chance to explore those routes that were always missed for the sake of safe riding.

Piaggio Motoplex was recently inaugurated in Bangalore under the ownership of Avant Garde Motors. The fully equipped dealership will serve as a base for Piaggio, Aprilia and Moto Guzzi bikes.

Piaggio is slowly expanding their network with Pune, Hyderabad, Kochi and Chennai having fully operational stores. Piaggio group has kept the ambiance of these stores same across almost every country of the world. Motoplex caters to the needs of superbike owners who prefer lesser known yet completely niche brands like Aprilia and Moto Guzzi.

London based Death Machines have made something unique from a rare piece of automobile history. This custom cafe racer is built on a 1983 Moto Guzzi Le Mans and gets itself an even fancy name, Mk II Airforce.

It was built to pay respect to Moto Guzzi founder and motorcycle racer, Giovanni Ravelli. The custom built machine is impressive from every possible viewing angle as this design flows from front to rear in the same linear manner as wind.

Engine was still in drivable condition but Death Machines went forward to replace seals and bearing along with perfectly restored cylinder heads. Airforce comes with hand finished body panels and all them are available in brushed aluminum finish. The impressive V-Twin motor got itself two 36mm Dell’Orto carburetors for maximum efficiency in terms of fuel usage and performance.

Moto Guzzi California sourced swing-arm was heavily modified to get a perfect fit here, replacing the original one due to styling issues. Death Machines even used a cantilevered rear monoshock and painted both rear rim and swing-arm Grey for better contrast.

The rear wheel gets a unique layout as no see-through rim was made available on the model. Even after using Brembo caliper for the front disc brakes, the shape and finish was kept closer to drum brake for retro appeal. Every other part for the motorcycle is handmade, including all the clips, grips and inverse lever.

A fully custom instrument console with digital readings was used for clarity. Not just that, the illumination can be controlled manually! Cost part for this motorcycle was not made official but as the parts and history associated in quite unique, expecting the model to go for auction and fetch huge numbers would not be a wrong guess. Moto Guzzi is available in India through Piaggio group’s Motoplex dealerships.
