Moto Guzzi revamp V7

Published: 13 November 2016

Updated: 11 November 2016

The V7 gets a decent glut of changes for 2017, which both drag it into Euro4 compliance, and make it a more attractive bike to own. Available in four versions, the range comprises updated versions of the Stone, Special, and Racer, as well as a special Anniversario limited edition for 2017, celebrating 50 years of the V7 model.

Now called the V7 III, the range gets a 10% hike in engine power to 51bhp, while torques peaks at 44.25lb.ft. The 21 litre fuel tank is unchanged, while it gets a new cap, injector covers, sleeper side panels and a new seat unit – which offers a new, lower, 770mm perch. The clocks – a single unit on the stone, twin on the rest – are also updated.


The frame hasn’t scaped unchanged, either. A new front section is claimed to be stiffer than old, giving better control and feedback, and slightly new geometry to improve steering response and sharpness in the twisties. ABS and traction control are still in evidence, while the latter now boasts two modes, one for the dry, and one for the wet.

Whiel the three updated models follow their existing style briefs, the new addition – the Anniversario edition – is being build in a limited run of just 750 (see what they did there?). It comes with a chrome-finished tank, genuine leather saddle and brushed aluminium mudguards – and looks superb.
