Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber


The name V9 Bobber evokes concepts such as essentiality of line, purity of design and thus a certain original sportiness, underlined by a total matt black look. Moto Guzzi's custom sports bike effectively creates the mid-size bobber series segment, in which the V9 is currently the only representative. Bobbers appeared in the United States after World War II, created by passionate riders who stripped away all details superfluous to their goal of running fast on dirt tracks. To compete in these conditions the riders used to mount oversized tyres, giving the bikes a wide footprint. Following this style, the V9 Bobber abandons all chrome plating and glossy finishes for matt black details.

The side panels and fuel tank are pitch black, with just a few graphic details in yellow or matt red. The exhaust unit, mirrors and both metal mudguards are painted in dark matt. The mudguard has been carefully shortened and reduced in size to make a big contribution to the minimal look of the V9 Bobber as well as housing a very compact optical unit. The 16-inch matt black rims are finely decorated with a grey Moto Guzzi logo and fit larger tyres (130/90 front, 150/80 rear). Even with these spectacular tyres and its distinctive design, the bike still provides exceptional riding pleasure and handling. Indeed the V9 Bobber is a true Moto Guzzi, and as such does not trade rideability for beauty.

The V9 Bobber also differs from the V9 Roamer with its more crouched and sporty riding position, due to the low drag bar painted black and the long saddle. The ground clearance of the latter is only 770 mm, and if you add to this the exceptionally low weight of around 200 kg, you can easily imagine the level of comfort, control and rider pleasure offered by the V9 Bobber.
