Moto Guzzi claims that the V9 Bobber is the new incarnation of the purest spirit of Moto Guzzi. A spirit that tolerates no compromise. A spirit that, with every choice, proudly states: I am what I am.


The V9 is supposed to be just that: authentic in every design detail; authentic in its use of strong and high-quality materials such as steel and aluminium, and in the choice of prestigious components; authentic in the agility with which it reacts to your riding; and authentic in the exciting torque of the new 850cc engine.

The V9 Bobber is easy to ride and beautiful to look at. It doesn’t intimidate you with its size or gadgetry that’s become so common on most motorcycles today. The overall reduced dimensions, along with the reduced saddle height, make it easy to ride and control even at a standstill, also aided by the overall weight of the V9, coming in at just 199 kg, a true record in the category.


Such a sturdy, lightweight and fun chassis combines with a Moto Guzzi 850cc, two valve, transverse 90° V-twin engine, completely new and designed to increase elasticity and torque to top levels. In fact, it develops 62 Nm torque at just 3,000 rpm in order to guarantee character, ease of use and quick response from low rpms.

The standard equipment that comes on the Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber is plentiful and includes ABS, adjustable traction control (which can also be disabled), immobilizer, USB port as well as new and complete instrumentation on a single, circular dash.
