The new special series of the sporty custom from the eagle brand flaunts its dual bold and elegant soul with truly unique details.
Aluminium components, slip-on exhaust and a brand new dark look enhance the character of a unique motorcycle
V9 Bobber is the sporty custom from Moto Guzzi that introduced the medium engine size bobber category. It’s a bike with a huge and authentic personality and a minimalistic style, characterised by the almost entirely total black look of every component and by large, oversize tyres that ensure abundant contact on the ground, just like the ones mounted on the motorcycles in the second post-war American era that raced on fast dirt tracks, leading to the bobber phenomenon.
And it is precisely this authentic sporty heritage that characterises the V9 Bobber Special Edition, the new special series from Moto Guzzi with a nocturnal look that stands out with its truly unique equipment package.
First and foremost, the new Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Special Edition boasts a special Workshop twin-tone black and grey colour scheme that enhances the metal teardrop fuel tank (which has a billet aluminium cap) and it also extends to the aluminium side panels. The bar-end mirrors mounted at the ends of the handlebar, along with the fork seals and the short front mudguard complete the equipment.
These elements amplify the sensation of perceived quality which is already high on the V9 models. The welds of the new frame and the quality of its paintwork are immaculately finished, as are the meticulous details of the 90° transverse V-twin engine, not only in terms of the casting but also the matt black that brings out the Moto Guzzi branding milled on the aluminium cylinder head covers.
It pays to look at the intimate details of this motorcycle, its touch conveying the construction tradition and culture so typical of the best Moto Guzzi models.
The unmistakeable sound of the Moto Guzzi 850 twin cylinder is highlighted by the street-legal slip-on exhaust painted matte black, with the bottom in aluminium and characterised in the terminal part by a sleek, oblique shape.
Elegance and sportiness blend together in this special V9 Bobber version, characterised, as always, by a sporty, active, and extended riding position that is never sacrificed thanks to the on-board space, ideal even for the tallest riders. These qualities, along with the overall kerb weight limited to just 210 kg and its seat height of just 785 mm, brilliantly emphasise the high level of comfort, control, and riding pleasure of a truly unique and unmistakable bike.
