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.

Moto Guzzi say the welds of the new frame and the quality of its paintwork are immaculately finished, as are the meticulous details of the 90 dedgree 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.

The unmistakeable sound of the Moto Guzzi 850 twin cylinder is highlighted by the street-legal slip-on exhaust painted matte black

Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Tech
The Moto Guzzi V9 has been a popular bike in the Guzzi range since its release back in 2016. For 2021/22 they have updated the model with a new frame, new engine seen in the V85 TT first, new colour schemes and new ergonomics.

47.8kW@6800rpm and 73Nm@5000rpm.

47.8kW@6800rpm and 73Nm@5000rpm.

The powerhouse of the V9 is the 90° transversal, air-cooled V-twin using pushrod and rockers with two valves per cylinder (intake cylinders in titanium). With a bore and stroke of 84 x 77mm, the V9 remains at 853cc. Moto Guzzi say this is their most advanced engine yet and is able to deliver a maximum power of 47.8kW@6800rpm and a healthy 73Nm@5000rpm . The unit now has greater torque at low and medium rpm thanks to revised pushrods and cams as well as adapting more tech to the V-twin.



The 2022 V9 Bobber has a new seat with a minimalist design while the aluminium side panels and the short front mudguard are also new. The updated model also boasts a new digital instrument cluster and a full LED lighting system that includes the brand new front headlight with DRL. Moto Guzzi MIA, the multimedia system that lets you connect the bike to your smart phone, is available as an accessory. 

The new frame has been created to ensure riders feel in control at all times. Suspension at the front is sorted by 40mm hydraulic telescopic forks, while the rear is a dual swingarm setup with two adjustable shocks, spring preload only. Braking is sorted by a single 320mm stainless steel floating discs with four piston Brembo radial-mounted calipers  and a 260mm stainless steel disc, twin-pistons floating caliper at the rear.
