It delivers 55 hp at 6,250 rpm with 45.7 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,000 rpm. The power and torque curves provide very smooth response over a wide rev range, which is what I experienced first hand riding the bike across the Alpine passes towering over Mandello del Lario. The Moto Guzzi team completed powertrain development by adopting a larger diameter, single-disc clutch, and a new double-U-joint driveshaft that clears the fatter rear tire. The chassis got a host of upgrades, as well, but the frame structure itself is basically unchanged. Wheelbase spans 57.7 in., up from the previous 57 in., and the front wheel has been pulled closer to the bike’s center of gravity by 0.8 in. This and the adoption of a swingarm which is 1.5-in. longer, biased more weight to the front. Combined with the reduction of steering rake from 27.5 degrees to 26.4 degrees, vastly improved the steering response, agility, and feedback. The Moto Guzzi V9 Roamer is the best lightweight Moto Guzzi ever.
