The Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer is bigger and more powerful version of the Italian marque’s most popular motorcycle – the V7. A retro-styled motorcycle with modern underpinnings, the V9 Roamer has been pegged as a versatile and user friendly motorcycle fit for everyday use.
The Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer is currently riding the wave of enthusiasm for classic-looking motorcycles. The chromed handlebar, forks and exhaust, classic shape of fuel tank and the minimalistic looks hark back to the Moto Guzzi motorcycles of the mid-1970s. The Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer is based on the smaller V7’s steel twin-tube cradle frame. The air and oil-cooled V-twin engine displaces 850cc, delivering 54bhp and 62Nm of torque. Power is delivered through a six-speed transmission with a shaft final drive.
The V9 Roamer rides on 19-inch front and 16-inch rear diamond-cut matt black alloy wheels. It gets conventional 40mm front forks and twin preload-adjustable rear shocks. The braking setup consists of a 320mm front disc and a 260mm rear disc with Brembo callipers. ABS and a two-level traction control system are offered as standard.
The Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer is imported as a completely built unit (CBUs). It competes with other cruisers and street bikes like the Harley-Davidson Forty Eight, Ducati Monster 821 and the Indian Scout Sixty.
