Moto Guzzi V85 TT
Created for the hardiest adventurers, the Moto Guzzi V85 TT evokes the legendary atmosphere of Paris-Dakar and other famous races. It beautifully blends the allure of the famous Mandello Eagle with the lines of modern classics to create the perfect bike for any type of journey on any type of terrain.
GUZZI’S FIRST CLASSIC TRAVEL ENDURO
Simplicity of form, together with riding ease and convenience are the key elements which make the V85 TT unique whilst its design and style speak the language of free spirits who are longing to leave kilometres of tarmac in their wake.
The V85 TT seamlessly mixes the great classic styles of the off-road world with advanced technological elements such as the digital instrument cluster and full LED lighting. The DRLs on the front headlamp are proudly adorned with a clearly delineated silhouette of the celebrated Moto Guzzi eagle.
With no fairing whatsoever, the V85 TT has instead a smoked plexiglass windshield and a pair of handguards that make it a true all-season bike, ready to set off on adventure whenever the mood takes you.
SPIRIT OF A TRUE ADVENTURER
The high resistance steel tubular frame delivers superb riding stability whilst the chassis takes care of the rest. Wheel travel equal to 170 mm, a braking unit controlled by a multimap Continental ABS system and spoked wheels accommodating tyres of 19” up front and 17” at the rear. This is a combination of elements which truly underlines the V85 TT’s versatile personality and ease of handling on the go. And, as if all that weren’t enough, it’s the only bike in its segment to use shaft drive transmission, superior to a chain drive because it makes no mess and requires no maintenance.
A BRAND NEW ENGINE DESIGNED TO THRILL
Let’s talk about the star of the show: the air-cooled 90° transverse V twin with OHV distribution and two valves per cylinder, the pride and tradition of the Mandello Eagle. Its 853-cc capacity and use of materials such as titanium, more commonly seen on race bikes, give the V85 TT an even more exuberant and ferocious character.
MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE ON ALL TERRAINS
Once you’ve donned a helmet and gloves and cleared your mind, all that remains is to lift your feet from the ground and enjoy the journey, which is why the V85 TT offers three different driving modes:
- Road: a smooth ride for sheer enjoyment
- Rain: for when the road lacks grip and you want that extra sense of safety
- Off-road: when you want to push it to the maximum and get that off-road performance
The V85 TT is in it for the long haul. Its fuel tank capacity of over 23 litres is the largest in its category, meaning it will keep up with the demands of even the most ardent long-distance traveller.
CRUISE CONTROL AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
The riding ease of the V85 TT also extends to the trip instrument panel. Semi-concealed behind the handguards, all commands are easily accessible whilst the Cruise Control system can be activated with a single button which also allows you to reduce or increase your set speed. Maintaining a constant speed on those long motorway stretches has never been easier, so you can simply focus on enjoying the ride.
NO NEED TO DISCONNECT (UNLESS YOU WANT TO!)
Tradition may be at the heart of this bike but that doesn’t mean neglecting the future. The TFT 4.3” digital display, with exceptional luminosity and elevated definition, reports all necessary information during a trip and high-performance technology and on-the-road connectivity extend the standard instrument functionality to enable you to enjoy music, make and receive calls, use a navigator and more. This comes in the form of MOTO GUZZI MIA, the multimedia platform which allows you to connect your Smartphone to the bike via an ECU available from the Moto Guzzi accessories catalogue.
IT’S THE DETAILS WHICH MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
With a range of original accessories designed, developed and produced by Moto Guzzi, you can customise your V85 TT to make it uniquely yours. Because whatever the type of trip you are about to set off on, the V85 TT will transform it into your very own extraordinary and memorable adventure.
The Special Graphics version stands out because of its red painted frame, the double coated components and the Skai Perforated Suede effect saddle that includes the Moto Guzzi logo stitched with grey thread using double needle sewing. It also mounts more profiled tyres for an off-road look, the fork protection is also in the same colour as the fuel tank.

SMALL BLOCK ENGINE: UNIQUE CHARACTER AND SOUND
The Moto Guzzi 90° transverse V-twin engine is unique in the world and was developed not only with performance and reliability in mind, but also with the aim of providing absolute riding pleasure and an entertaining on-road experience.
The engine contains a driveshaft calculated to deliver more liveliness during inertia and enhanced engine braking, while the piston cooling oil jets come with a flow control and management valve. The exhaust comes with dual pipe manifolds for improved thermal insulation.
The 744cc-cylinder confirms the V7 III as the Moto Guzzi entry-level motorcycle. With maximum power of 52 horsepower at 6200 rpm and 60Nm of torque at 4900 rpm, and an absolutely flat torque curve, the V7 III combines ease of use with the character and quick response synonymous with Moto Guzzi engines.
SAFETY: THE MOTO GUZZI HERITAGE
The V7 III is equipped with ABS and adjustable MGCT (Moto Guzzi Traction Control) system which can be disabled if required. The former is a dual-channel Continental unit designed to ensure the wheels don’t lock up, whilst the latter is a system which prevents rear wheel spin during acceleration. MCTC has two settings: a more conservative option ideal for reduced grip conditions such as wet or slippery roads, and another designed for a safe, yet thrilling ride on dry surfaces.
MOTO GUZZI MEDIA PLATFORM CONNECTING V7 III TO THE WORLD
The V7 III range offers the Moto Guzzi multimedia platform as an optional extra. MG-MP is an innovative system which connects the bike to the rider’s smartphone by means of a dedicated app, downloadable for free from the Apple Store and Google Play. Compatible with both iPhone and Android, the phone essentially becomes the link between bike and Internet, creating a sophisticated multifunctional onboard computer.
