Moto Guzzi has revealed a new variant of the V9 Bobber, called the Moto Guzzi Bobber Sport. The Bobber Sport is the latest addition to the Moto Guzzi V9 family and takes design inspiration from the 'bobbed' flat track racers from 1950s America. The Bobber Sport was revealed at the Moto Guzzi plant in Mandello del Lario and features fat oversized tyres, blacked out details, wide handlebars and a low seat and tail unit. The new Moto Guzzi also has retro-styled front fork gaiters, a slashed front mudguard and a lowered headlight framed by a new aluminium flyscreen.
The Bobber Sport is powered by Moto Guzzi's 853 cc transverse v-twin engine which makes 54 bhp at 6250 rpm and 62 Nm at 3,000 rpm. The Bobber Sport also gets Ohlins suspension, which is adjustable for preload, compression and rebound damping. The bike is available in a new Burnt Orange paint job which definitely makes it look neat, together with the matte black treatment on the engine, wheels and tailpipes, which by the way, are street legal slip ons which should make the v-twin sound meatier and throatier.
So far, Moto Guzzi hasn't revealed any prices or launch date, but the Bobber Sport is expected to make it to India after the international launch. In India, the new Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Sport is expected to be priced at around ₹ 15 lakh (ex-showroom). Moto Guzzi is also expected to unveil an adventure bike based on the same V9 platform, called the Moto Guzzi V85 Adventure. The V85 is expected to be unveiled at one of the motorcycle shows in Europe in a month or two.
