Packed with new technology and engineering excellence, this is not a bike for anyone trying to keep a low profile.
With the completely overhauled twin-cylinder 850cc, 65 hp, 73 Nm engine and advanced frame, riding thrills are taken to a whole new level, while on the looks side, new finishes, foot pegs and saddle deliver all the style you’d expect from a bike sporting the Mandello eagle.

After all, it’s not by chance that Moto Guzzi custom bikes have been among the world’s most popular and beloved for over 100 years. Generations have revered their unique design and of course, at the heart of each is the legendary twin-cylinder 90° V-engine engine.
A century of passion and testing has come together in the V9 Bobber, to deliver an unbeatable combination of outstanding riding pleasure and showstopping style.
With its clean lines, purity of design and decidedly sporty character, this Moto Guzzi custom epitomises how technology and performance can be effortlessly combined in one stylish package.
Vibrations are a distant memory, with comfort taken to the nth degree. There is all you could ask of and more, with functions such as ABS and MGCT adjustable traction control, which you can also choose to disable. On top of this, the V9 Bobber boasts a new digital instrument panel and a full-LED lighting system that highlights the silhouette of the Mandello eagle.
The most evident change is the new 850cc, 65 hp and 73 Nm engine. Sharing the same pedigree as the V85 TT, it delivers lively performance and is ably abetted by an improved frame that has been strengthened in the headstock area to increase stability and riding precision.
And of course, as always, there are plenty of accessories to add that extra wow factor to the V9 Bobber, starting with the Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia system that connects your phone and bike to create a multi-functional onboard computer.
