Milan Show: Moto Guzzi unveils new V7

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...

"Even with the reported 10% increase in hp/torque how do they only get 53hp and 44lb/ft out of a 750?" Because it doesn't spin as high as some other bikes and it is "only" a twin. Guzzis have always been about good low and excellent mid-range real world power. Very satisfying rides and easy to work on.

Indeed. It's not about "how much can you get". If you go down that route we'd all be riding 7 gear Yahama two strokes, with loads of power but a knife thin power band. Great if you're racing and a real pain in the a**e if you're not. It's about how much power you cane use and (importantly) where you want it. If you want it at the bottom and middle, there s only one place it can come from (and that is from the top).  

It's also interesting to note that after playing with four valve pent roof heads the small block Guzzis are now back with two valve Heron heads. The pitty of this is that there designs are very primative. Franco Lambertini, at Morini, was getting 100hp/litre AND stacks of torque back in 1973 even on the cooking Strada 350s. Guzzi have never got close to those figures with their own small "Vs". Lambertin was "available" about 6 months ago, they should have snapped him up (he's now back with a "re-born" Morini).

As you can probably tell I'm a Morini fan, but to be honest would rather buy a new V7 than one of the new Morinis.
