2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Top Speed and Price

Within just two days, the new 2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber series will have its debut performance, so we have gathered the full specs and details, including top speed and price. There are rumors that the top speed of this bike is as fast as 70 KPMH. However, let’s wait until the official word comes out. Since the Moto Guzzi will be celebrating its 95th anniversary – the promising news for the global market is that the new bike will be available soon. The prestigious international auto show event that will host the celebration is the EICMA 2015. So, we should be patient to wait only two more days when all the specs and details will be revealed for public consumption. The target market for the Moto Guzzi is fans of the medium-size custom cruiser.

This new series of the Moto Guzzi features the 850cc V-Twin engine with massive displacement and calibration. This bike has met the Euro 4 emission standards. Recent updates show that the horsepower can be as high as 230 HP, while the torque can be 45 lb-ft. However, all of this is based on the estimation calculations. For safety features, this vehicle will contain the brand new ABS standard, traction control, and USB port. Estimation of the total weight is around 410 pounds. The retro style that has always been inherent in every production of the Motto Guzzi breed continues in this upcoming series with the latest designs. Adding the 22-spokes wheel type, single front disc, and thin seat – and other features makes this bike break out of its conventional design look into a high-performing retro bike.

Riders who love the shortened fenders will be grateful because the new 2016 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber series will have that feature, as well as great exhaust capability. At this time, the only color option that Guzzi has for this new series is matte-black paint. Besides those specs, this bike has the distinctive characteristic of chrome and gloss paint in the tank area. The only negative comment is related to its body shape; some riders find that the engine block placement is uncomfortable for their legs.
