I still like the looks -inquisitive, purposeful (even if it is that way only standing still) and unique.

A lot of discussion for something that maybe doesn't even exist as yet - just saying.

I can’t see past the horrid color scheme. It hurts my eyes. Luigi who paints the frames red must be stopped. And punished.

You mean the "gal" with the 5 o'clock shadow? Looks like Putin with a blonde wig.

It reminds me of this gal.

I must admit I think the colour scheme is shit. Another Guzzi own goal?

Shit and therefore unique, I bet there are a lot of people who exactly use this argument to make this bike their own. Yes, with every beer the color scheme becomes nicer and nicer....

I've seen a pic of one in blue. Like candy blue over chrome? About the only way I can describe it.

There's unique and then there's tacky. When I look at this color scheme I throw up in my mouth a bit. Actually that's what I think when I see this bike - looks like mouth throw up...

Some may dig it - I obviously don't.

Nah, Pete. A roadrunner intimates high speed. I'm thinking high speed will not be a virtue of this bike.

Dont all adventure bikes have this look ?

And the colour scheme is like the early V11 sport (sort of)

TBH it looks pretty mundane and about 15 years too late unless there is something magical lurking inside that engine

Well Pete, being an artiste and sculptor, I'd say you should commit to building it.

Quote :
The V85 Engine: all the secrets in The Clan special, 05 July 2018

The powerful, unique lines of the V85 have stayed in our minds since we first saw the bike at EICMA 2017 and, after no less than two much-clicked special features on the topic  posted right here on the community website, for us members of The Clan the bike’s design no longer holds any secrets. “Ok, but what about the engine?” you ask.

This is one of the top topics in the comments section, so here’s the in-depth article that we’ve all been waiting for regarding the 850CC engine that powers not only the V85 but a new range of “Eagle” two-wheelers, starting with a much more road-style sibling!

We can only tell you about this engine thanks to Antonio Cappellini, Moto Guzzi’s head honcho of design as well as diehard biker and off-roader, who revealed all the secrets of this twin-cylinder engine in the May edition of the “Motociclismo” magazine.


80… THE MAGIC NUMBER
80 HP with 80 Nm of torque and extreme attention paid to easy, fluid power delivery: that’s the recipe for this new engine that will soon be powering us and the V85 towards new Guzzi-style adventures.

While from the outside it may remind you of the 850CC twin of the V9, the similarities are limited to the engine capacity and the bore and stroke figures: all the rest is totally new!

The time has come to lay to rest a false rumour that has been doing the rounds amongst certain Guzzi fans out there: there was no need for 4 valves per cylinder in order to achieve the mythical figure of 100 HP/litre, 2 valves per cylinder, enlarged to 45 mm, were quite sufficient. The pushrod and valve rocker system and the air-cooling, the pride and tradition of Moto Guzzi history, remain unchanged, thus confirming the engineering architecture that has made the brand what it is today.


NOTHING SECRET
We Guzzi fans don’t believe in miracles, so what is the secret of this new engine’s performance? Obviously there’s more than just one: firstly the use of titanium intake valves, an elegant solution that enables the adoption of a far more high-performance valve-lifting geometry, and then there’s also the semi-dry sump lubrication system rather than a dry-sump system, with dual coaxial delivery pumps that are so reliable that there is no need to fit an oil cooler.

We can also say goodbye to the very bothersome vibrations at high speed (while the more pleasant ones will remain) thanks to a weight saving of almost 30% on the piston rod assemblies. To complete the package there will also be a new, 52mm throttle assembly  (as compared to the 39mm of the V9) and a ride-by-wire throttle, coupled with variable mapping for riding and traction control conditions.


EVOLUTION AND LEGEND
The best of technology with total respect for tradition: an engineering challenge also overcome as regards environmental emissions. Indeed, the V85’s engine is proof that performance and air-cooling can in fact coexist comfortably with the Euro 4 regulations. But how, you ask? Well, thanks to the high operating efficiency delivered by the absence of a number of components that tend to reduce power output (such as cooling pumps and timing chains), which also translates into very low fuel consumption figures.

An engine that is so modern that it even impacts on the frame design, becoming an integral part of the vehicle. Thanks to more rigid side covers and longer forks, the V85’s precision and driveability on the road are top notch, even at high speed.


CHANGING PERSPECTIVE
In a market such as that of on- and off-roading machines, in which the twin cylinder engine capacities have for some time now exceeded 1200CC, the V85 engine now comes along with all its ducks in a row and ready to change the rules of the game rather than merely accept them as they are.
Lightweight, responsive, with a feisty torque curve that already hits 80 Nm at 3,500RPM, this bike is able to meet all the on-road riding needs of even the most expert riders, and even in arduous off-road riding conditions.

Moto Guzzi’s history is studded with examples of bikes that have broken all the rules while remaining true to the identity of the legend that is Moto Guzzi: this is undoubtedly going to be one great Moto Guzzi!

Ridiculous marketing blabla?

Still quite a negative band-waggon happening on here. The most endearing thing about Guzzi's is their originality and uniquness imho. lets see what actually comes from the factory and opine then.

I can't imagine how they are going to harvest that much power and torque with only 2 valves per cylinder ? Unless they are ponies instead of horses ?
