Moto Guzzi V85 TT 2019

The cruiser among the touring enduros radiates cosiness and sovereignty. Its thundering V2 engine moves well and forgivingly. The chassis and brakes also work well. It is just as ill-suited to extreme off-road situations as it is in the hands of notorious knee-grinders. The Moto Guzzi V 85 TT likes to do its rounds in a refined and comfortable manner, and even for longer tours it offers enough practical comfort with its cardan drive and ergonomics. On top of that, it looks sensational and conveys emotion. The only thing some of our testers would like is a few more horses than its 80 hp.

Anyone who regards the BMW F 750 GS merely as an entry-level bike is doing it an injustice. Although the low seat height, easy handling and pleasant engine response are indeed suitable for beginners, the "small" GS is also a lot of fun for advanced riders. The possibility of raising the F 750 GS to the level of an upper-class bike with all kinds of luxury features is unique and makes it the ultimate wolf in sheep's clothing.
