Moto Guzzi reveals special edition V9 Bobber

Written by Kanad Kalasur

Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber now comes in a special edition. The V9 Bobber has single-handedly popularised the mid-displacement bobbers amongst Italian manufacturers. The bike gets a simple design along with a smooth, blacked-out appearance. The V9 Bobber rides on fat tyres that were inspired by post-World War II era American motorcycles. These bikes competed on dirt tracks, which gave the V9 Bobber a custom appearance.

Design of the V9 Bobber Special Edition

Unveiled at the 2022 EICMA Show in Milan, Italy, the bike now gets a genuine sporting history. The bike stands out from the rest due to the unique equipment, along with design changes compared to the regular version. The special edition gets a dual-tone black and grey colour scheme. It also receives a billet aluminium fuel cap on the tank. The bike also gets fork gaiters, shortened front mudguard and bar end mirrors, giving it a classic appeal.

The V-twin engine has a matte black finish and machined aluminium cylinder head covers. The quality of workmanship is top-class, which can be seen in the frame welds and the painting quality. The exhaust is also blacked-out, consisting of an aluminium muffler and generates the unmistakable sound of the Moto Guzzi 850 twin-cylinder engine.

Specification of the V9 Bobber Special Edition

The bike measures 2,185 mm long, 840 mm wide and 1,120 mm tall. It gets a seat height of 785 mm, and the kerb weight (minus the fuel) is 210 kg. The fuel tank capacity is 15 litres.

Engine of the V9 Bobber Special Edition

The 853cc 90-degree V-twin engine gets both oil and air cooling. It has two valves per cylinder and generates a maximum power of 65 HP @ 6,800 rpm and 73 Nm of peak torque @ 5,000 rpm. It gets a 6-speed gearbox.

Launch in the Indian market

Moto Guzzi also offers the V9 Bobber in two other variants – the standard and the roamer. The company would likely bring the bike to Indian shores after some time.
