Piaggio India launched a total of five motorcycles today – the RS660, Tuono 660, RSV4, Tuono V4 and Moto Guzzi V85TT. While some of these motorcycles are making their India debut, the V85TT isn’t. At this price, the 2021 model costs close to Rs 3 lakh more than the one that was launched early last year.
2021 Moto Guzzi V85TT: engine
Moto Guzzi has said that the engine on the 2021 model produces more low and mid-range torque thanks to “optimised lifting of the pushrod and rocker timing cams and a consequent adapting of the engine control electronics.” While the older bike made 80hp and 81.3Nm from its 853cc, air-cooled, transverse V-twin, it now makes 75hp and 82Nm. The engine has also been tuned to meet Euro 5 (BS6) emission norms.
