Style: The V85 is the first Classic Enduro
The design is the meeting point between technology and functionality with a classic Moto Guzzi style, designed to remain timeless as well as defining the first Classic Enduro to be dedicated to tourism.
No compromises have been made to the detriment of comfort and usability, resulting in a comfortable bike for two, with bags installed on the chassis frame. The fuel tank design harks back to the tradition of the Moto Guzzi models set up for the African rally raids. In line with the Guzzi story, there is also the high front mudguard and the beautiful double front headlight, stylistic and functional solutions already present on the NTX 650 from 1996 and the Quota 1000 from 1989. Modern technology elements - such as the fully digital instrumentation and the front LED DRL light series on the front headlight - combine classic styling with the off-road world.
Character, lightness and ease of use
The frame is tubular steel. The asymmetric aluminium swingarm has a curved shape on the left side, while the right arm houses the new shaft drive transmission. The shock absorber directly connects the chassis to the right arm of the swingarm, thus allowing free space for the exhaust system layout. The suspension offers generous wheel travel for optimal off-road use.
