It is a limited edition Moto Guzzi V85TT Guardia D`Onore. It comes with every accessory for a lower price than adding all the accessories to a base bike even if you install all the parts yourself.
The suspension with almost 7 inches of travel soaks up all the bumps while still handling the curves.
My requirements for a multi-day touring bike that could go on any road were cruise control, tubeless wheels, and a shaft drive. Cleaning and lubing a chain at the end of a day of riding is not on my list of fun things to do. There are very few bikes that meet all three of those requirements, and the others are heavier, more powerful, and about $10k more.
Below is the marketing information for this particular model, followed by the specs for those that are interested.
Since 1946, the Reggimento Corazzieri, the body guards that escort Italian presidential convoys, have ridden bikes supplied by the House of Mandello. The Moto Guzzi V85 TT Guardia d’Onore is a tribute to 75 proud years of loyalty, prestige and partnership. This commemorative limited edition features a special livery, extra accessories provided as standard and a collector’s case. A once-in-a-life time model, this celebration of history and Italian engineering will transform even the shortest trip into a memorable occasion.
Only 1946 units of the Moto Guzzi V85 TT Guardia d’Onore are in existence. Why 1946? Because that was the year that saw the start of an enduring association between the Mandello Eagle and the Reggimento Corazzieri or Cuirassiers Regiment, the famous honour guards of the Italian President. It was also the year in which the Italian Republic was founded. In a tribute to 75 years of this important partnership, each Guardia d’Onore V85 TT features a unique serial number from 1 to 1946 engraved on the handlebar riser.
The V85 TT Guardia d’Onore standard equipment includes a central kickstand, engine guards, enlarged touring windshield, aluminum top box and side cased, and supplementary LED lights. Every lucky owner will also receive a special folder containing a postmarked collector stamp, which was issued by the Italian government in 2021 to celebrate the Moto Guzzi’s centennial birthday.
