Milan Show: Moto Guzzi unveils new V7
09 November 2011 12:59
Moto Guzzi has unveiled two new versions of its V7 Roadster at the Milan show, both also powered by an updated version of its 750cc Transverse V-Twin.
The new engine is outwardly similar to the old version, but features an all-new top end, including head, pistons, and induction which boosts power and torque by 10 per cent (the current bike puts down 48bbhp/40ftlb) while also improving economy and emissions.
The new bikes are this V7 racer styled by Miguel Galluzzi, designer of the original Ducati Monster. Although only a concept at this stage it could be set for production and features a new half fairing seat unit, a host of cosmetic touches and, bizarrely, a drum front brake.
A version that will definitely go into production is a new V7 special intended as an up market tourer and features small screen, panniers, and retro two tone (brown and white) paint job.
