This is another step by Moto Guzzi towards the near future, which will bring the Mandello Eagle to celebrate its 100-year anniversary in 2021 with a new range of motorcycles built on the technical base of the V85. It is a motorcycle dedicated to trips, which have always been the heritage of Moto Guzzi in their purest and most original manner, which bring to mind the epic and adventurous rally raids of the 1980s, a world from which it has inherited style, charm and emotion, but which has been designed to face both everyday and long-range roads, according to the most up-to-date requirements and the forthcoming ventures.
The V85 pays tribute to the great adventurous trips and is dedicated to those who, despite never ceasing to dream of adventurous journeys, are seeking out a motorcycle capable of returning that spirit to their everyday journeys. A new Moto Guzzi engine is being launched in the V85. The construction design is proprietary and excludes the entire current Moto Guzzi production: in fact, it is a two-cylinder 90° transverse air-cooled 850cc which, thanks to its complete redesign, has 80 HP of maximum power. This feature, coupled with the powerful torque at low speeds typical of all Moto Guzzi two-cylinders and the lightness of the V85, make it fun to use in for on-road and off-road riding.

V9 is Moto Guzzi’s easy cruiser. V9 Roamer is the elegant and universal custom model; V9 Bobber represents the bold and essential spirit of Moto Guzzi. They both stand out because of the exceptional quality of their components and the painstaking attention to detail and they are powered by the Moto Guzzi 850 cc two-cylinder engine with unprecedented torque, smoothness and responsiveness that contribute to enhancing the ride for these two Italian cruisers.
The 2018 V9 versions are the result of the constant perfecting that Moto Guzzi dedicates to its bikes. Roamer and Bobber are now distinguished by a big difference, with two clearly distinct personalities: one more touring and the other sportier. V9 Roamer turns heads even more on long routes by introducing a new pair or rear shock absorbers and a new protective top fairing.
V9 Bobber gains new opaque graphics and is available in three colour variants: Impeto blue, Nero Notte black and Tempesta grey.

Aprilia Racing is the most advanced Piaggio Group platform for the development of technology applied first to racing bikes and then to factory models. The Racing Division that has brought the Noale-based Manufacturer 54 world titles, launched the “Factory Works” programme last year to make the same technology developed for the Aprilia RSV4 – seven-time World Superbike champion – available to anyone who wants to compete in top-level championships for standard derivatives or for those who simply want to have an RSV4 with optimised performance for track use.
(Milan, Eicma 2017 – The presentation of the Aprilia Racing Factory Works program at the press conference of the Piaggio Group; on stage, the Aprilia RSV4 RF FW along with the Chairman and CEO Roberto Colaninno, the journalist Guido Meda, the Aprilia MotoGp rider Aleix Espargarò and the Aprilia Racing Manager Romano Albesiano).
The programme has been expanded with the introduction of an Aprilia RSV4 kit that maximises engine performance, reduces overall weight and improves aerodynamics. Thanks to new pistons, different heads, full racing exhaust and regenerated control unit, the engine reaches 215 HP. The additions that lighten it include a lithium battery, a new fuel tank, which, together with the complete exhaust system, some carbon pieces and the aluminium upper casting plate made in a single piece, carry a total weight of around 10 kg. The new Factory Works kit can be further enriched by a flush mount set featuring aerodynamic appendages, developed by Aprilia on the RS-GP prototype used in the MotoGP World Championship.

Heir to Aprilia’s successful history in competitions, the new entries to the off-road family combine the technological contents of the Aprilia tradition with a captivating look. Equipped with powerful and clean engines, they are available in five models and two cylinders.
The new Aprilia RX 125 and SX 125 share superstructures, frame, engine and suspension, but each has a distinctive character that can be adapted to different passions.
