Moto Guzzi is greeting 2021 with a new 850cc, V7. Receiving the the update are the V7 Stone and V7 Special.
The iconic model gets a transverse V-twin similar to the V85 TT. This new powerplant produces 65.9 Ps at 6,800 rpm and 73 Nm at 5,000 rpm, amounting to a 25% increase in power over the older 744cc.
Style-wise, the new V7 retains many of the hallmarks. It now features full LED lighting with a daytime running lamp in the shape of the Moto Guzzi Eagle. Engineers have also redesigned the exhaust pipes. Subtle changes have been applied to the side panels. Its rear fender is now shorter.
To distinguish the two variants, the V7 Stone gets a new circular dial with digital elements integrated. The V7 Special retains the dual analog dials.
The V7 is built on an upgraded frame with steel elements in the headstock. It rides on new Kayaba shock absorbers with greater travel and rolls on aluminum wheels (Stone) or spoke wheels (Special).
The Stone is available in three satin-finish colour schemes: Nero Ruvido, Azzurro Ghiaccio and Arancione Rame.
The Special comes in Blu Formale and Grigio Casual.
