The future Moto Guzzi V850 X seems much more than a hypothesis: technical details found by British media reveal that what would appear to be the scrambler of the air-cooled twin-cylinder family would be in the pipeline
July 6, 2022
M.while we await the arrival in the streets of the beautiful V100 Mandello officially presented at EICMA and – who knows – maybe even the presentation of some other novelties based on the same liquid-cooled platform (don’t tell me that none of you thought of a new Griso) that received so many positive appreciations during the last edition of the Salone Milanese, the hypotheses that would like one are strengthened V850 X – presumably a scrambler – coming soon more or less.
QSome time ago we had published one spy photo of a prototype caught near the Moto Guzzi factory in Mandello del Lario. The photo taken by Lecco, and Trial expert, Oscar Malugani showed in fact a new version based on V7 which was distinguished by spoked wheels like the Special and a line that in the rear recalled the Moto Guzzi bikes of the late 80s such as the Le Mans 1000 or the Lario 650, as well as much less “classic” superstructures starting from the headlight LED.
Could this be the V850 X that the colleagues of Bennetts have they revealed the presence and technical details through the homologation documents just reported on their website? Of course, it could, with all the conditions of the case given that the photo shows a motorcycle with low exhausts while the V850 X we imagine could be a scrambler and therefore be equipped with a high-pass exhaust like that of the Moto Guzzi NTX 650 semi-fairing enduro from the early 90s (a bike that, in the opinion of the writer, would not even be so today agè …).
S.i therefore speaks of a model that would be presented with two power levels, 47 horsepower to be suitable for the A2 license and 66 horses for the 853 cc air-cooled twin-cylinder, with a slight increase in power compared to the V7 equipped with the same engine, while the weight obtained from the homologation documents would be placed at 213 kg with a significant saving compared to the Stone and Special sisters (in the opening photo). The choice of Michelin Anakee tires would further devise a slightly more off-road declination than the other V7s and for a bike that could therefore enter into competition with the Triumph Scrambler 900 (this is in fact the name of the famous Street Scrambler from 2023) exactly as the V7 is in battle with the English rival Speed Twin (here too, new name from 2023 for the historic Triumph Street Twin antagonist of the Mandello twin-cylinder ).
There is no certain information about when it will be possible to unravel the mystery but it is at least probable that the next Milan Show will bring some other good news for fans of the Brand of Mandello.
