Moto Guzzi V85 TT Adventure-Tourer Motorcycle Revealed — Gets Full-Colour TFT Screen & Riding Modes

Moto Guzzi has unveiled their latest production-spec V85 TT adventure motorcycle. The all-terrain motorcycle was first showcased as a concept in 2017 at the EICMA. It features a classic retro-style design, yet receiving all the latest in tech equipment.
