Surprise Success: Moto Guzzi V85 TT Sales are on Fire.  BTW, see Ewan is the new Brand Ambassador.  :thumleft:

"IMI will initially offer four motorcycles when it opens its doors late in September. For Moto Guzzi, these comprise the naked V7 in various configurations and V85 TT middleweight adventure bike,
made famous by enduro enthusiast and actor, Ewan McGregor who was recently appointed Moto Guzzi’s brand ambassador."

The V85-TT is still one of the best looking adventure bikes (for me, anyway) When there were rumours that the bike was just a show model, and would not be manufactured, I was very dissapointed. I was quite prepared to wait for it

So I bought something else.

What a pity

When/if it ever comes time to replace my GSA, I will look closely at the 85.
I love the retro looks, colour is questionable though.
