Taste Test: 2020 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Sport

Moto Guzzi might be in a tough spot these days, especially with the growing competition from British & American fronts. The Bobber-style motorcycles are still on the niche market, but slowly growing incrementally. Mainly thanks to beard-wearing hipsters.

The Guzzi from Italy isn’t going to be left out on this craze as they introduce its newest variant, the V9 Bobber Sport.

Basically shares the same 850cc V-Twin engine from the impressive V85 TT adventure-touring bike, but differs on some internals and tune.

The Bobber Sport is a different take on its V9 line accompanying its much-established Roamer line! Adding to the spice on Guzzi’s mid-size line basically as a somewhat of a compact version of Guzzi’s much larger Audace.

With Triumph, Indian, and even Harley-Davidson joining the fray, will this Italian approach work?
