Moto Guzzi V7 Racer unveiled

Published: 15 September 2010

This is Moto Guzzi’s luxurious new café racer: designed for a “gentleman in the mood for a track day”.

It’s called the V7 Racer and it stakes its claim as an object of desire from the off, boasting a chromed tank with leather strap and a single-seater suede saddle.

The bespoke charms don’t end there, either. The side panels, throttle body guards and silencer mounting brackets are all hand-crafted out of drilled, brushed aluminium, which apparently requires “superb artisan skill”.

Moto Guzzi are particularly excited by their steering yoke guard, a double chromed ring, so “exquisite” it “looks like an ornamental feature”.

Not to neglect performance, it boasts a  744cc V-twin engine, fully adjustable Bitubo rear shocks, Marzocchi front forks and 4-piston Brembo calliper brakes. You can even add an Arrow exhaust system if you’re feeling competitive.

Stay tuned for release dates on this limited run upgrade to the V7 Classic.
