MOTO GUZZI V9
THE FACTS O 54.3bhp O 199kg O Seat height 785mm
A year after the launch of the new V9 models, Guzzi have given the pair a small tickle to address early concerns over comfort, and opened up a huge range of accessories.
The Roamer now has a slightly different riding position, with the footpegs mounted 100mm further back, and 35mm higher, changing the rider positioning for better control, and creating a little more room for taller riders. The seat is also new, and set at 785mm. Effectively taking over the mantle of the Nevada, Guzzi are pushing the Roamer’s touring capabilities, and have created a mass of GT accessories to make it a continent-crosser – from big screens to luggage racks and panniers.
Meanwhile, the Bobber gets the same mods to the footpeg position, while the seat is more padded for improved bum comfort, still at an altitude of 785mm.
