Ahead of the big EICMA show in Milan next week, Moto Guzzi have 'leaked' some shots of the new V9. Having had a long conversation with Galluzzi in May about what Guzzi would be presenting this year's show in terms of new stuff, so far I'm a bit underwhelmed. Have a look.

In profile it looks a bit er,none Guzzi. Triumphish perhaps.
The seat is reminiscent of the "Cobra" bend to shape things available back in the seventies for your custom chop.
If this is aimed at the general purpose do everything slot as was the T3
or Triumph T140 then it needs a longer seat to accommodate one's "bird"
When the V7 was first released I went to look at one but considered it to be too small for two up touring and couldn't understand why they had dressed it to look like it's ancestor yet given it less BHP and importantly less bottom end torque.If the new V9 makes up for the shortcomings of the V7 in the power stakes then it may be that we shall see the demise of the V7 as people opt for more grunt.
I shall be very interested to see how it all pans out.

TO LIVE OUTSIDE THE LAW YOU MUST BE HONEST.

Looks like a "Bent" Triumph.

Guzzi used to lead, now it appears to follow....

I expect / hope it looks better than that, it's clearly a test mule / lash up in the pics. I expect it'll be styled like a smaller Audace...

Not sure it will replace the V7, as the V7 is A2 licence compliant.  I still can't see why anyone would want a muted expensive Guzzi over a host of Japanese options, but that's just me.

I sooooo want another smallblock but I just know I wouldnt be able to get over that weak output.

??

If you want power and can live with short range, higher running costs, tubed tyres etc. Consider the V9 in 18 months after someone else has found the design flaws. If you want a new bike now try the Ducati Scrambler, Harley 1200's, various Japanese muscle bikes, BMW R9T etc.

If you want light weight, range, practicality and the ability to still go fast enough to get banned two up with camping gear, ignore the spec sheet top trumpers and try the V7 and CB500. You may also want to look at the SR400, MASH and Enfield's.

If this cruiser replaces the V7 Guzzi is just another cruiser maker. If they keep the V7, which they just upgraded they have added pie eating bar hoppers to their possible customers and lost nothing, which screams Nevada replacement to me.

Guzzi used a 250 mile tank, tubeless tyres and shimless valves. Any Japanese choice only has one out of the three. I know, I wanted the W800 with a big tank and alloy wheels.

Some also view shaft drive as a positive. A squirt of lube every week versus a week to change the clutch seems even to me, but I guess it depends on priorities.

It takes 8 hrs or less to swap out a clutch on a big block Guzzi they last for 50-100k miles I find
