Moto Guzzi reveals endurance racer kit

Moto Guzzi has developed a bolt-on factory kit to transform any clip-on equipped V7 into a replica 1970s endurance racer. The kit has been inspired by the 1969 Moto Guzzi V7 Record prototype, an endurance racer that set numerous speed records for Guzzi, including one at Monza Speedbowl Circuit where the V7 achieved an average speed over 621miles (1000km) at 128mph The...

Well done guys. I have to say that looks a sight better than most of the supposedly cafe racer conversions you see knocking about these days.

Looks better than the similar Ducati 'Paul Smart' replica.

Wow, that really is pretty. One of the nicest fairings I've seen. Great that they've managed to make it fit the existing headlight, and the screen actually looks useful too. But I just love Guzzi, they have a style all of their own.

I'd love this on my cafe but £1400!!? You can get a custom one from the Sates for $950. In my opinion this sort of after market stuff is what would really get the younger generation into biking, and then they go and spoil it all by saying something like " That's all your savings please". I'll guess I'll wait for a second hand one.:(

Its got the look.......

but as long as you don't mind being blown off with just about everything on the road as you only have 48bhp! Now if they brought out a kit for the Le Mans, that would be more realistic. A sheep in wolfs clothing comes to mind!

These days, good handling is perhaps more use than mega top speed? The traffic and roads may suit a bike like this better than something bred more for track use. I have to say, it does look  good, but then I'm an old phart who grew up with bikes like this. Wonder how much I can get for my Blackbird on a trade in?

Myself a guzzi owner ( v10 centauro ) I really think it is a pity that this kind of bike cant get more horsepower, in the same way that it is disgrace not seeing the MG-01 in the streets.Power is needed for safety reasons.

1% screwing the 99% of us.

Hey Boysa ita looksa the dogsa, letsa milka da punters a little more!!!! I'm all for retro and getting cool kids into cool bikes with identities. A Guzzi Owners Club somewhere but not in 'Oooh ya can't do that!' England ( yes ya can!) wants to pool together buy a kit then take it to the nearest Track Day/Race fairing producers and get their own made. The Price would be less than £300 with the memory foam seat! ... more if you want it on Carbon (super cool)... but still less than £1400. And you get to give the middle finger to the tax man who charges 10% import duty on everything including the shipping costs and then 20% on everything including the 10% Import Duty he just put on as VAT. And ... thanks to this Granny robbing government who has just sold the NHS out from under us, the money ain't going into anything that will benefit us anyway! 1% screwing the 99% of us.

Takahashi!

My wife has a 750 Breva (same engine!) and we are just in the process of selling it because its a snail (her opinion! as well as mine) . I've done 900 miles on it so I'm not an armchair road tester at all. Its great at being a reliable commuter but putting this body kit on it is like putting clip-ons and rear sets on a Harley. And its no wonder you sold the CB1300 coz they put you to sleep as well. You must be into boring bikes! And wait till you get to the first service, it cost me £220 coz they do loads first time in! Hope you enjoy it more than we did.

Don't think there is any customs duty between EU members.

Pity there isn't a race kit of sorts too.
