The bobber Sport is the latest entrant to join the Moto Guzzi V9 family, Inspired by WWII era’s flat track machines the Bobber Sport manages to stand out from the crowd
Moto Guzzi is perhaps the most underrated motorcycle manufacturer in the world. Although they create some really exciting motorcycles somehow people really don’t buy them often. However, they have survived all that and still building some fabulous machines and believe it or not they are doing it for the past 95 years. Take the latest entrant, for example, the latest motorcycle to join the Moto Guzzi V9 family is the Bobber Sport.
Inspired by WWII era’s flat track machines the Bobber Sport manages to stand out from the crowd with a lowered single-seat saddle which, combined with the usual low drag bar supported by lower risers. All these add to a more prominent low and compact sporty riding position.
The motorcycle also features some top-notch modern equipment in the form of Öhlins shock absorbers, adjustable in spring preload and hydraulic compression and rebound to ensure better dampening. This suspension setup helps in giving more control to the rider while they are riding fast.
The Moto Guzzi Bobber Sports V9 is powered by 853 cc transverse v-twin engine which makes 54 bhp at 6250 rpm and 62 Nm at 3,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox. The unmistakable sound of the 850 V twin motor is emitted from a street legal slip-on exhaust pipes painted in matte black and with an aluminum bottom.
To make sure that the motorcycle looks like a proper Bobber the Italian motorcycle manufacturer has purposefully shortened the front mudguard whereas the headlamp which has been lowered gets a tight black aluminum top fairing. To keep the fork tubes clean it gets a classic dust boot as well.
Lastly to achieve the ultimate Bobber look the motorcycle gets fat oversized tires. Although the prices for this new motorcycle have not been revealed yet you can expect it to price less than 20 lakh mark when it finally arrives in the Indian market towards the first half of 2019.
