The Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber and the Roamer are two hot motorcycles that are on the cards to be launched in India. We now have official confirmation that both motorcycles will arrive at the Motoplex outlets next week, where Piaggio sells all its products under one roof.
The Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber and the Roamer were showcased at the Auto Expo which took place earlier this month. Both motorcycles will sport the same engine, and what will differentiate them is how they look.
Powering both the motorcycles is a new 850cc, V-Twin engine that will produce 55bhp and 62Nm of peak torque. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and power to the rear wheel will be delivered through a double-joint shaft.
Once launched this month, both motorcycles will compete against the Triumph Street Twin and the Harley-Davidson range in India. The Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber and the Roamer are most likely to be sold in India as Completely Built Units (CBUs) and can be expected to be priced around Rs. 14 lakh ex-showroom.
