2019 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Sport Coming in September

The V9 Bobber is getting a sporty new variant, with the new model to debut Sept. 7-9 at Moto Guzzi‘s open house event in Mandello del Lario, Italy. Moto Guzzi has released just a single photo of the V9 Bobber Sport, but that’s enough to give us a pretty good idea what to expect.

Based on the photo, we know the 2019 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Sport is getting twin Öhlins rear shocks. Up front, the telescopic fork looks to be unchanged except for the addition of fork gaiters. Above the single round headlight rests a small black screen which is already offered in Moto Guzzi’s accessories catalog.

The fuel tank and front fender are in a reddish copper color, while the side panels with the V9 Bobber Sport logo come in the same color with a swath of black. The saddle appears to have a flatter shape than the regular V9 Bobber seat, while the pillion pad looks to be missing.

Beyond that, we expect the Sport model to similar to the regular V9 Bobber, including its 853cc 90-degree V-Twin engine. Only a bit of the header pipe is visible in the supplied photo, but it wouldn’t be unexpected if the exhausts end in with upgraded silencers.

We’ll have more information when the 2019 Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber Sport debuts in Mandello del Lario. The Moto Guzzi Open House runs Sept. 7 to 9 with a number of events, factory tours and test rides for visitors. Moto Guzzi will also show off its V85 Adventure bike prototype from the 2017 EICMA show (with the production version expected to be introduced at this year’s show).
