Or perhaps I got it right with the suggestion of the V85? I love Motoguzzi, but I don't think anyone would claim that they are bastions of reliabilityChoose another brand/model... I follow a few V85's forum and they have very few/small complains about the bike... and they're selling a lot of them.
Footpegs breaking off reminds me something about a certain AT version ;-)Or perhaps I got it right with the suggestion of the V85? I love Motoguzzi, but I don't think anyone would claim that they are bastions of reliability
Edit: and they have had a couple of recalls on the V85 for oil leaks and footpegs breaking off
That isn't a problem I am familiar with for the AT. Was that one of the older 650 versions? I believe Enfield had that issue with the Himilayan as well.Footpegs breaking off reminds me something about a certain AT version ;-)
And yes: tradition are hard to break, but it happens sometime.
I had forgotten about that. For some reason, they chose to make the right side from cast aluminum instead of cast iron like the left. If you hit a rock or something it could snap it. Camel ADV came out with a brace to beef that up.It's a problem that had the 2016-17 version: footpeg support too weak.
In fact it's the first time I hear about that, probably because I only read italian V85's forums.That is definitely a flaw, though not to the magnitude of the V85. I believe the issue only affected bike sold in the US market, but there was an issue with the assembly process causing the retaining clip to fail. When the bike was running, it could cause the retaining clip to slip off due to vibrations and the footrest could detach from the bike.
Shaft drive? Leaking?
