Moto Guzzi has redesigned its V7 for 2013 with a more powerful, faster and smoother 750cc 90-degree V-twin engine.
Three models of the V7 are available — the new Stone, the Racer and the Special. The Stone is designed to appeal to younger riders. It features new lightweight steel alloy wheels and a matte black or pure white paint scheme complementing the chrome accents. The MSRP is $8,390, and the Stone will be available in mid-October.
The V7 Racer is a throwback to 1950s and ‘60s café racers. It has a chrome metal fuel tank studded with red Moto Guzzi badges and finished with a leather strap. It also features a suede leather seat with an aerodynamic seat cowl and ‘70s style racer number plates. It will be available in mid-October for $9,990.
Moto Guzzi’s V7 Special is the model closest to the original 1969 V7 Special. It’s a touring bike with a sophisticated fit and finish and a fuel tank capacity with 5.8 gallons for an average range of 310 miles. The Special has aluminum spoked wheels and bag and windshield accessories. It’s available in a white/red metallic or yellow/black metallic two-tone paint scheme. It will be in dealerships during the first quarter of 2013 for $8,990.
Moto Guzzi also announced that participating dealers will be offering test rides on the V7 Stone until Nov. 1. Licensed motorcycle riders can request an appointment online, where they can locate a participating dealer and receive a personalized product introduction and test ride.
