Commemorating the Moto Guzzi 95th anniversary, PID brings the latest rides: Moto Guzzi V9, with its two variants: Roamer and Bobber.
“We have studied and observed the market extensively to figure out the needs and what matters the most to two-wheel lovers in Indonesia. Due to this tremendous amount of work and effort, we now have a good understanding of this dynamic market,” said Marco Noto La Diega, President Director of PT Piaggio Indonesia. “Accordingly, today, as we celebrate the 95 years of Moto Guzzi, we are extremely proud to present to the Indonesian market a lineup of long awaited products, which is Moto Guzzi V9.”
Moto Guzzi V9
A novel mid-size custom bike that embodies the authentic, prideful, purest spirit of Moto Guzzi, the V9 series completes the big family of motorbike range under the Piaggio Group. Comes in two variants, V9 Roamer and V9 Bobber, each of them has their own distinct style as well as character and price-tagged at IDR 492.500.000 and IDR 516.500.000 off the road. Both V9 bikes are also equipped with a standard advanced two-channel ABS and advanced traction control integrated with the electronic engine management system and adjustable in two different levels of operation which can be deactivated, ensuring better grip of the rear tyre on any road surface, reducing engine torque through a reduction of the engine. The extensive catalogue of accessories includes the Moto Guzzi Multimedia Platform, the multimedia platform that connects a smartphone to the vehicle to provide an exceptional quantity of useful information for the journey.
“Through the presence of V9 Roamer and V9 Bobber, this reflects our answer to our consumers’ increasing demand for premium and sophisticated differentiation of motorbikes.
Both Roamer and Bobber are powerful, gallant and sophisticated custom bikes that will entice not only custom bike enthusiast, but also fellow road-riders,” added Marco Noto La Diega.
V9 Roamer is available in three different colour variants, all with glossy finish, Giallo Solare (Solar Yellow), Bianco Classico (Classic White), and Rosso Rubino (Ruby Red). Consistent with the V9 series, with the signature V-shaped engine designed to withstand the test of time. Classic and elegant, V9 Roamer is a perfect partner who long for seeing open skies even between skyscrapers. V9 Roamer riders perfectly understands that going slow doesn’t mean wasting time, but to savor every moment in riding through the beloved country streets. This is due to a comfortable and relaxed riding position in the long padded saddle. It also exhibits the unique architecture of the new 850 twin-cylinder, 100/90 and 150/80 front and rear tyre, as well as new wheel rims (19″ front and 16″ rear) and painted in matt black and treated with a diamond-cut finish. The V9 Roamer is a true mid-size light motorcycle, for people who love and know Moto Guzzi motorcycle culture, also those who have always loved the design of custom motorcycles, but have never bought one because of the weight and poor handling of almost all models in the sector.
On the other hand, V9 Bobber is available in two colours, both with a completely matt finish: Nero Massiccio (Solid Black) and Grigio Sport (Sporty Grey). Talking about Bobber means talking all about substance. It is lean, athletic, and proudly minimal. Bobber is where classic and modern styles live side by side in harmony, fully knowing that authentic values never go out of style. Bobber also differs from the V9 Roamer with its more crouched and sporty riding position, guaranteed by the low drag bar painted black and the long, lowered saddle. The matt black rims, along with larger tyres (130/90 front, 150/80 rear), 16” front and rear tyre, as well as distinctive design, the bike still maintains characteristics of exceptional riding pleasure and handling. It is unquestionable that the V9 Bobber is a true Moto Guzzi, and as such does not trade rideable-aspect for beauty. Along with the ground clearance of only 780mm, it is not hard to imagine the level of comfort, control and riding pleasure the V9 Bobber provides.
