Real World Review

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 749 cc 90° V-Twin engine, producing 47.6 bhp at 6,800 rpm and maximum torque at just 3,200 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel tubular frame with Aluminium swingarm
  • 320 mm disc up front with four piston calipers
  • 260 mm disc at the rear with two piston caliper
  • 40 mm 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.
