If it's an adventure bike, how about Italian mountains?

Paradiso, Viso, Terminillo, Amiata, Vettore - Google "mountains in Italy" for more

I still can't stomach that colour scheme, but the bike is growing on me.
If the weight and power are as described, then it could make a lot of sense.
Just needs decent fuel capacity.
Oh, and a 'Twiggers' in every town. Wink

How original is it? Or are you expecting to share it with a few hundred others?

I was about to get involved in the naming competition but then got cold feet about sending my E-mail info to Italy.

Here's yet another photoshop rendering of what could come of the V85. It's gotten a load of favourable comments on FB.

The prototype at Milan is not necessarily the only colour scheme the V85 will come in. How many diffferent paint jobs are there on V7s? Tons. 

Hopefully this bike makes it into production and has many variations in colours and hopefully the engine makes it into the V7 - V9 frame. Now wouldn't that be cool?!

Corr! Heart That looks like a proper Guzzi. I want one just like that. I'd choose that over a Triumph Bonneville any day of the week, and I'm a Triumph owner/admirer. Just goes to show - It's all about looks. How shallow I am. Big smile

Well the latest news is that it should be available next year, it's not a prototype.
