What Is It?
The first iteration of the retro Moto Guzzi V7 launched in 2008 and is powered by a Euro 3 compliant air-cooled 749cc 90° V-Twin engine, producing 47.6bhp at 6,800rpm and maximum torque at just 3,200rpm.
- Steel tubular frame with Aluminium swingarm
- 320mm disc up front with 2 piston calipers
- 260mm disc at the rear with single piston caliper
- 40mm Marzocchi fork
- Dual rear shocks with adjustable pre-load
- Classic dual analogue dash with LCD inserts
- 2->2 exhaust system
- 5 speed gearbox
Unusually, for a machine on the lower end of the power spectrum, final drive is via shaft rather than chain but that does make it easier to maintain. Even more unusually the V-Twin engine is mounted so the cylinders stick out either side but it does look cool. The wire spoked 18" front wheel takes a 100/90 tyre and the rear 17" a 130/80.
Three trims are available with the base Classic available in white, black or special edition red while the Special trim adds a two-tone paint job. At top of the range the highly desirable Cafe gets you raised silencers, a cafe racer hump at the back and lower bars. It's available in yellowy gold, white or black.
Accessories include a luggage rack, soft top box, centre stand, tank cover, tank bag, screen and panniers.
Range renewed with a 70% new engine, power up a few bhp but available lower down, new gear selector, lighter alloy wheel rims, rubber mounted indicators and increased 22 litre fuel capacity. Overall weight is down 3kg and you can spot them by the black cylinder heads.
Classic becomes the Stone / Special while the Cafe becomes the Racer. Stone now has conventional 10-spoke wheels while the Special / Racer keep the wire spoked.
The special gets the two-tone paint while the racer gets the up-swept silencers, red frame, Chrome tank, number boards and low bars. The Stone is available in black or white, the Special in red/white and black/yellow and the Racer in chrome/red.
New accessories include slip on racing exhausts, piggyback shocks, low seat and comfort seat.
- Unique style, easy maintenance, easy handling
- Early bikes were under powered / heavy, rear suspension, toasty knees
