    It will have to be Tiger 800 , F800 , Africa Twin money or it won't sell . I very much doubt the production bike will be Ohlins equipped .

    Thanks to Doug Richie for sharing this photo. Looks real to me. The Moto Guzzi team at the NEC reported that the Milan Show bike had gone 'back to Piaggio R&D'. Small steps.

    I really really like it! Not in love with the colour scheme, but reckon it would look fantastic in stealth black with the red frame.

    Just why oh why do we have to wait so feckin long for it to come into production!

    Yup, you would think they would whizz it through R&D & get it made PDQ.
    Having been to the factory late last yr & seeing it 1/2 empty, increased sales would be good for the company.
    OK they are doing OK with a the hipster types wanting there models but that could end as fast as it took of & guzzi would be fecked. That model or models might help keep it a profitable concern. Especially now the Stelvio is no more.

    When I spoke to them I was told it wasn't at the NEC because it had gone over to the states for the New York bike show.......I still want one, black like Todd said or the satin olive green they did the Stelvio in

    This could keep you busy while you wait for the V85.

    Old chassis with modern motor.

    Could be improved in 5 minutes if the exhaust bandage was removed...

    Yup..

    Hard one to price, certainly a lot of work & if it was done correctly it could be a cracking bike.
