The V85 interest me,but I was hoping for more up close viewing.For some reason Guzzi does not want up close scrutiny.

Plan to take a demo ride when they finally arrive stateside. Could be that middle ground between V7 and Stelvio (which I really wanted to like but is just to big and heavy). V85 could be my 'mama bear'.

Of the color schemes I've seen the white/yellow is the least offensive to me. The iridescent green and super-shiny blue are just too much. As noted on the WG site I think a dark grey or black would nicely offset the red frame like they did with this version of the Racer

Someone on Wildgoose posted an unsubstantiated price of $14K. As if the paint scheme wasn't enough, that price point would be high enough to discourage me.

Yeah, the guy who said it has yet to say where he got that number. Probably just a SWAG on his part - forum fodder as it were...

Just saw a post with the $14,000 mentioned and how it was arrived at.

If the bike's MSRP in Italy is 12,000 Euro, remember that it also includes IVA/VAT taxes at a whopping 22%.
(in 2019 it will increase to 24.2%  affraid )

So the basic retail actually starts at 9,800 Euro. If you now take that number and convert it to USDs, at today's exchange rate, it becomes approx. $11,400.
So actually the US MSRP could be between $11,500 and 12,000.

That makes a lot more sense - that VAT is a killer. I signed up for a demo ride notification so we'll see what happens.
