    Guzzi V85 TT - Revzilla review

    It's not often you read a review as honestly refreshing as this one.

    Not only refreshingly honest, but written with disarmingly good humour and clever use of the English language which is all too lacking in most quarters (cue grumblings from an old fart).

    Thanks for that Allan. Almost didn't read it, delighted that I did!

    I agree 100% - most reviews are pretty much cut and paste jobs with a change of the machines maker and the photos being the only thing to distinguish between the previous page. Which is largely unhelpful when shopping for a new ride.

    Genuinely entertaining review - thanks for posting that. Anyone else think there's the bones of a truly great bikini faired cafe racer in there?

    Loved the line about the R9T.

    I like the use of the word 'Technowhizbangery' in there. This person says/writes what a lot of us think I reckon.

    I'm still thinking that Guzzi is onto something with this machine. Not too powerful that it overwhelms the chassis and quick enough for the vast majority of us. Good looking, not too tall and comfy too by the looks of it. I wonder what they'll price it at here in NZ?

    So - I've just been and had a look at the V85TT which Scooterazzi here in Wellington have received. In all a very nice looking machine and better in the flesh than the pictures, as Guzzis often are IMHO.

    Priced around $21k it's in similar territory to the VStrom 1000 (Looks a bit costly then but a nice alternative), cheaper than a Tiger 800 (So that's good then) and definitely cheaper than the BMWobblyou 850 thingy (I'd definitely rather have the Guzzi then).

    I'm going to take a decent length test ride in a week or three's time, after which I'll post up my impressions.

    Anyone else here ridden one here in NZ yet?
