Supposed to be 80HP.

Interesting to note that while Guzzi/Piaggio will not yet diclose the weight, they quote it as 200KG.

Nah, looks about right, tuned more for low down torque which would make sense for that style of bike. Pity it looks like it fell off a fairground ride though.Dead

The front wheel is 19", rear is 17" - the tyre sizes can be seen in the photographs in the article.

16" is pretty unlikely given the factory is fitting either Pirelli or Metzler tyres if you read the review linked to in Brian's recent post ("Oooooo!)

Referring to feature linked in Brian's earlier posting the power is 80CV (79hp) and torque is 80Nm (59 lb ft). 

 In other words pretty much identical power figures to a Le Mans 850 Mk1 - excepting the V85 torque maxes at 3,400rpm while the the Le Mans torque developed its torque at a peaky 6,000 rpm to produce its hp figure. Stunning really, such figures from a fully silenced & very clean engine.

I must admit the tank shape is lovely, maybe a smidgen like one of the all time beautiful tanks , the MV Agusta.

It won't be a heron head, same head design as the V9/V7III I'd guess...
