Moto Guzzi have entered EICMA 2023 in full force! The Piaggio group showed off the new Stelvio that was announced just before the event and they also pulled the covers off their new V85 range. Check out all the info we know on these models below…
Moto Guzzi Stelvio
Built on an ultra-modern technical platform the Selvio is the only bike in its displacement class to have a cardan shaft drive and windscreen with electric height adjustment.
The Stelvio is powered by a “compact block” engine, recently introduced on the V100 Mandello and further refined. A 90° transverse V-twin with liquid cooling and double overhead camshaft and four valves per cylinder. The six-speed gearbox has been revamped to make shifting even smoother and softer. This engine delivers 115hp@8700rpm and 105Nm@6750rpm.
The chassis includes a high resistance steel tube frame combined with tubeless spoke wheels, 19in at the front and 17in at the rear, as well as long-travel suspension. The Stelvio is the first Moto Guzzi to feature the PFF Rider Assistance Solution.
PFF Rider Assistance Solution
- Cruise Control feature (an advanced cruise control system that exploits the front radar to adjust speed based on that of the vehicle ahead)
- Forward Collision Warning (detects possible collisions with vehicles and objects located ahead)
- Blind Spot Information System (warns the rider of vehicles in the blind spot of the mirrors)
- Lane Change Decision Aid System(identifies vehicles that are approaching from the side, creating a potentially dangerous situation).
The top of line electronics features are completed with the Ride by Wire accelerator and the six-axis platform that optimises the electronic controls for safety (such as Cornering ABS). There are five Riding Modes as, Touring, Rain, Road, Sport, and Off-Road which manage engine brake, ABS, traction control, and engine map intervention. In the Off-Road mode, both ABS and traction control can be disabled. A vast range of accessories is available to meet a rider’s specific needs.
New Moto Guzzi V85 range
At EICMA 2023, Moto Guzzi presented the new V85 range. Moto Guzzi say that in terms of style, it is further modernised and refined thanks to a total design revamp of the superstructures, windscreen (now manually adjustable), handlebar controls, now more intuitive and practical to use, and the adoption of a new 5in TFT instrument cluster. Metal is replaced by lighter and more refined aluminium for the headlight unit brackets and passenger grab handles.
The air cooled, 90° transverse V-twin is now Euro 5+ compliant, while new variable timing boosts performance across the entire power delivery range. It now offers maximum power of 80hp and maximum torque of 83Nm, an important development highlighted by the redesigned cylinder heads.
Moto Guzzi V85 becomes a family in 2024, with three different interpretations to suit a range of mobility needs. V85 Strada is the most minimalist version, intended for daily use. It stands out for its alloy wheels with street tyres, its low front mudguard, and its three Riding Modes (Road, Rain, and Sport) which manage the ABS, Traction Control, and engine maps.
V85 TT is dedicated to touring. It features tubeless spoked wheels with dual purpose tyres and four Riding Modes (Road, Sport, Rain, and Off-Road) which optimise the electronic controls (including Cornering ABS), thanks to the presence of the six-axis inertial platform. Standard equipment also includes the engine guard and passenger grab handle, both in aluminium, as well as hand guards and adjustable hydraulic preload for the shock absorber spring.
The V85 TT Travel is the top of line version complete with touring-specific equipment package that includes rigid cases, the Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia platform, heated hand grips and saddle, and a more protective windscreen. There are five Riding Modes as, in addition to Road, Sport, Rain, and Off-Road, there is also Custom (available as an optional accessory for the other two V85 versions) which allows the rider to customise the electronic controls based on their own riding needs. There is a vast range of accessories available for each of the V85 versions.
Australian pricing and availability is still TBA…
