Both V9 Roamer and Bobber are powered by 850cc V-twin air and oil-cooled engine that produces 54bhp of power at 6,250rpm and peak torque of 62Nm at 3,000rpm mated to a six-speed gearbox. The power is channelled to the rear wheel through a new double-joint drive shaft.
In terms of design, both motorcycles come with a similar layout. The Roamer runs on a 19-inch wheel at the front and a 16-inch wheel at the rear while the Bobber has 16-inch wheels at both ends. The bikes have an all-metal built, including the fenders and side covers.
MGX-21, on the other hand, is an outright cruiser. The motorcycle is loaded with features such as ride-by-wire throttle, selectable power maps and evolved traction control. It also flaunts Cruise Control, a feature that is spot on while highway cruising.
MGX-21 is the newest bike of Moto Guzzi and strictly assembled by hand as collector's item. Powering MGX-21 is a 1400cc, V-twin engine that comes mated to a six-speed transmission system. Dubbed as the 'Flying Fortress' for its size, opulence and sophistication, the MGX-21 will be available on order only.
