V9 BOBBER: MOTO GUZZI HAS CREATED A NEW SEGMENT
The name V9 Bobber evokes concepts such as its essential line, pure design and thus a certain original sporting content, underlined by numerous details in a total matt black look. This Moto Guzzi sports custom effectively inaugurates the mid-size production bobber segment. Bobbers appeared in the United States after World War II, built 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. In line with this style, the V9 Bobber abandons any chrome plating and glossy finish for matt black details. Therefore, the side fairings are black as night, as is the exhaust assembly, the mirrors and the metal rear mudguard; The latter has been carefully shortened and reduced in size, so as well as including a very compact optical unit, it makes a big contribution to the minimal look of the V9 Bobber. The matt black wheel rims, both 16 inches, are elegantly decorated with the Moto Guzzi logo in grey; the front rim is shod with a tyre that has an oversized shoulder (130/90). Even with these spectacular tyres and distinctive design, the bike still maintains characteristics of 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 provided by the low drag bar painted black. The set back aluminium footpegsguarantee a more active and erect posture and ensure more space and comfort on board, even for taller riders.
The latest generation of the V9 Bobber, despite the single-seater, aggressive look, is ready and approved to carry a passenger: in fact, the passenger portion comes as standard equipment, removable as are the passenger footpegs, in order to make the V9 Bobber a true one-seater. The ground clearance of the latter is only 785 mm, and if you add to this the low total kerb weight of 199 kg, it is not hard to imagine the level of comfort, control and riding pleasure the V9 Bobber provides.
