V85 motor secrets unveiled

Recommended Posts

$10.5 k ?

 

it's still a naked bare bones twin.  A toy.

 

I suppose less is more?

Yeah, but $10.5 K isn't even enough to buy the Guzzi V85 from what I heard.

found this in a couple spots....

 

Priced aggressively, it starts at USD 11,990 (RM 50,202.13) MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) for the grey paint option. On the other hand, the V85 TT Adventure, complete with red/yellow/white paint and panniers retails for USD 12,990 (RM 54,389.13).

 

10,5 isn't that bad for the KTM considering new moto pricing these days. My Nephew just paid 10300. for a Honda 450 dirt bike! I think the 'rub' comes for guys like myself is, that there is so much out there used, for so much less. If a bike is 100%, without a doubt, the perfect bike for me, I can pay retail. I haven't seen anything like that in a long time... since the Tenni

I think we we are safely to the point we can ask ScuRoo which one he is bringing home . . .  :grin:

Luigi is the guy with the red Guzzi jacket/sweater

You can see him e.g. at 5:20 on the left.

Hopefully he finds the pot with the grease this time. :grin:

 

The engine comes with titanium valves.

Could this be a possible risk?

Titanium exhaust valves, (Lighter.) but roller tappets, (Heavier.) and the POS still won't rev beyond 8,000! 85 HP? Kiss my huge, sweaty, antipodean arse! I part my buttocks and break wind fulsomely directly in the face of this insult to Moto Guzzi's heritage!

 

On TI valves? I suggest you do some reading up on RSV-4's.......
