Moto Guzzi Australia has confirmed we will be getting the new V85 TT Travel unveiled last week at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan.

The V85 Travel simply features formerly optional accessories as standard fittings. They are panniers, extra LED lights, a higher windshield, heated grips and phone connectivity.

It also comes in a unique Sabbia Namib colour and graphics with a grey frame and matte chassis.

There is no word yet on arrival or pricing, but expect to pay more than the V85 TT at $18,890 (plus on-road costs).

The screen has a 60% larger surface protection area than the standard screen.

The lightweight plastic panniers with alloy inserts have 37-litre capacity on the right to hold a full-face helmet and 27.5 litres on a the left as it sits over the high exhaust pipe.

Pannier locks use the same key. They come with discrete frame mounts to retain the bike’s lines.

The heated hand grips and additional LED lights are controlled by buttons on the left switchblock.

V85 Travel also comes with the Moto Guzzi multimedia platform that allows riders to connect their phone and extend functions of the instrument cluster.

The V85 Travel is powered by the 853cc air-cooled, OHV, transverse 90° V-twin and is shod with Michelin Anakee Adventure tyres.
