Power makes its way to the rear wheel via shaft drive and while the engine clearly shares some history with the V9 lump it's a brand new design which is, quite remarkably, still air-cooled.
It's a big step for Moto Guzzi who will be using it as a platform for a whole family of new bikes going forward and equipment is pretty up to date with a large 4.3" colour TFT dash, LED running light and adjustable levers. Off-Road mode minimises traction control and turns off the ABS system at the rear.
The 19" wire-spoked front wheel takes a Metzeler Tourance 110/80 tyre at the front and a 17" 150/70 at the rear.
Accessories include the Aluminium luggage system, Ohlins rear shocks, multimedia system, upgraded mirrors, LED fog lights, crash bars, tall screen, centre stand and the usual Arrow exhaust system.
