In the Moto Guzzi V85 TT, technical features, functionality and design intermingle without a solution of continuity. The evocative and sinuous lines of the frame find styles in the structure that supports the light assembly and in the rear saddle support that accentuate a personality suited to take on any challenge.
The Moto Guzzi V85 TT trellis bearing structure is made of sturdy steel pipes that enclose the engine from above: The transversal 90° V-twin carries out a fundamental bearing function that makes the entire assembly even more solid and rigid.
In designing the frame and suspension, the engineers started from a blank sheet, immediately removing the temptation to go down the same path as the V7 and V9 street bikes that use a double cradle system. This made it possible to create a frame that is almost 2.5 kg lighter, all to the benefit of handling on mixed routes and ease of riding in off-road. In fact, less weight means less physical effort and more fun. A high construction solidity also results in a lot of stability when speeds increase, even with the bike fully loaded: even in this case, the particular anchoring of the Moto Guzzi V85 TT engine to the bearing structure plays an essential role.
The result is that an innate agility combines with high riding precision.
