2020 Moto Guzzi V7 III Carbon

by | Jan 16, 2021 | Moto Guzzi

Moto Guzzi is an iconic Italian motorcycle manufacturer that is well-known for their historical prominence in racing and innovation’s. They introduced the first motorcycle center stand, first bike manufacturer to use a wind tunnel and they gave us the first 500cc V8-engined motorcycle Grand Prix racer back in 1955.

In 1961 Moto Guzzi designed a two cylinder 90°V air cooled engine destined for the Fiat 500 Sport, capable of touching140km/h. However the requested annual quantity exceeded the production capacity of the Mandello del Lario plant. This same 90°V twin then found its way into the Moto Guzzi V7 range that began production in 1966. It was originally a 703,3cc with 40hp unit installed in a transverse format and therefor the bike was designated a V7.

This limited-edition V7 Carbon is the third evolution of this, the most loved of Moto Guzzi’s, assembled by hand and produced in limited number of only 1921. This number was chosen as a homage to Moto Guzzi’s founding in 1921. The number of this limited bike is shown on a tidy plaque mounted on the handlebars. Being the third edition, the motor size is now a 744cc but still remains to be shaft driven.

Red stitching on the water repellent Alcantara seat and then many anodized black billet aluminium components such as tank cap, headlight frame, injector covers and the rear brake cylinder.
