Lovely, but not for my knees if it's like the other guzzis.

 

Silencer under rear seat would have been better IMHO

That does look good
One of a very few New / Modern bikes I would actually like to Test
I wouldn't mind Hiring one for a few days just to see how I got on with it .
Sitting here thinking about where I would like to Test it now

Just had a look at the prices - 11k bit of luck on lottery may be required

Looks really good but I cannot get excited with the engine still being the 'wrong' way round'.

Really like this, Headlight bracket is great. Always been a fan of the V7 Cafe racers for the coloured tubular frame.

I love the look of it but would be fearful of exploring it's potential beyond gravel and forest roads.

 

Would leap at the chance of testing one, looks comfy.

Ha, yes the wonder of review sites.  Reminds me of the 38-40mpg I'm meant to be getting from my mk1.  Think it's fair to say the V85 is slightly heavier than both the 8fiddly and 9'er.

 

Pity it's £11k though, that's really heavy.  I guess many will buy on PCP as they do with Gs's.

If it's anything like the Guzzis of old (built for a orang-utan) it's no good for me.
