Moto Guzzi V85 Pre-Order?

Yes you can actually preorder the bike!

While that’s all very convenient and modern does it actually make any sense?
The idea of preorders for motorcycles kinda bugs me. How do you place an order for something you haven’t ridden?
Especially when it’s a brand new model....

If you decide you don’t like it after you get it what sorts of headaches will you have returning it?

I’m just not comfortable with the idea of this. No reviews. No owner feedback. Does it have death wobble? A crappy clutch?
Too much of a gamble for my taste.
Must be a millennial thing....

As of my knowledge you must not preorder, you simply can wait until a bike is at dealer and you can testride and purchase after .
If you want to get your Guzzi first you can preorder.
I do not understand the problem ?

One answer is KTM 790 adv. KTM actually hires engineers, and there's no way it will be less reliable than the guzzi.
Test rides in America are hard to come by. Wrangled one once, and didn't like the bike, The dealer said, well that didn't go well, and I'm thinking that I just saved 10k - fine with me.

There are road reviews of this bike now.
I found this one informative.

I have to admit I actually like the look of the bike. Gives me nostalgia for the 80's.
