I live about thirty miles from a Yamaha/BMW/Moto Guzzi dealer so when I go to get something for the Yamaha I usually look in the show room. I like the Guzzi quite a bit and would consider one.

Last year I went to a local Aprilla / Moto Guzzi dealer to check out the V85TT and I was kind of thrown off regarding how small it was. Upon further eye-balling I was also not digging the build quality. Nice looking scoot for sure but not sure about a brand new air cooled, shaftie in the year 2020.

Interesting. The dealer nearby has one. I need to go take a closer look.

Absolutely drop dead gorgeous. Pretty sure the valves are screw down instead of shim/buckets so should be super straight forward.

The one caveat on the surface is the quality of the switches, when I was playing around on it in the showroom, the thumb switches felt cheap and mushy. Not an indicator of future failure, they just don't feel nice unlike the rest of the bike.

There's also the lingering question mark of Guzzi quality and dealer network.
