The Moto Guzzi V85 TT motorcycle has been a big hit for the Italian brand, exhibiting the happy merger of Moto Guzzi’s retro flare with the popular ADV bike scene.
Moreover, the Moto Guzzi V85 TT is a solid bike to ride, and we gave it solid reviews when we rode in Sardinia last year. But, what if you want to hit the dirt a bit harder than this 90/10 bike provides?
Italian designer Oberdan Bezzi has been thinking this thought (as have many of you), and he has penned what he calls the Moto Guzzi V90 TTR concept.
We are not sure about his hopes of building a 900cc variant off of the 80hp transverse 90° v-twin engine, but the idea of a bike with a bit more ground clearance, a 21″ front wheel and 18″ rear wheel, and Dakar-inspired bodywork certainly gets our heart rate up.
Bezzi says his design incorporates a larger fuel tank as well, and the seat has obviously been styled to be more “dirt bike” in its approach.
With the “beak” gone from the front fairing, the bike takes on a whole new approach, and we like it. What do you think? Should Moto Guzzi expand the V85 line to include such a variant?
