The new Moto Guzzi V85 TT Travel brings key touring upgrades like a high windshield, heated grips and hard panniers as standard.

The V85 TT Travel is set to hit dealerships in August, priced from $21,690 plus on-road costs.

For reference, the standard V85 TT, which launched locally last year, is priced from $20,690 rideaway, or $21,390 rideaway with the special Evocative graphics package.

According to Moto Guzzi, the Italian brand responded to its customers in developing the more touring-oriented V85 TT Travel variant.

“Moto Guzzi has listened to the requests of Guzzisti,” the company said in a press release.

“Creating a V85 TT version that is prepared as standard with a selection of essential adventure touring accessories.”

Specifically, the Travel variant is equipped from standard with accessories that are available in the brand’s catalogue, like a higher touring windshield which boasts a 60 per cent larger surface area.

The Travel also benefits from two lightweight panniers with aluminium inserts, holding 47 litres in the right-hand pannier, and 27.5 litres in the left.

Also new is heated hand grips with buttons incorporated into the original left-hand switchblock, additional LED lights, as well as smartphone connectivity via the brand’s Moto Guzzi MIA multimedia platform.

The bike is exclusively available in a Sabbia Namib colour scheme (as pictured), which sees a grey frame with matte touches, as well as a dedicated graphics package.

No other changes have been made, and so the Moto Guzzi V85 TT Travel carries over the 853cc 90-degree V-twin, delivering 59kW of power and 80Nm of torque.

The engine’s performance can be personalised via three riding modes: Road, Rain and Off-Road, each of which correspond to a different engine mapping and a different calibration of the traction control (which can be disabled) and ABS, as well as a different response from the ride-by-wire throttle control.

Michelin Anakee Adventure tyres and Brembo brakes are equipped as standard.
