2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Range Changes Everything Yet Remains Faithful to its Heritage
Moto Guzzi recently released its 2013 V7, which is a completely new motorcycle. The company is Europe’s oldest continuously operating motorcycle manufacturer, and the 2013 Moto Guzzi V7 is led by a more powerful, faster, smoother 90° V-twin engine. Yet, it is still driven by the cardan shaft drive and supported by the double cradle “Tonti” frame, which are cornerstones of the V7 tradition.
The 2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Range includes three different versions and a wide range of available accessories that meet the various needs of all riders.
A completely new version designed to appeal to younger riders, complete with a competitive price point; trendy, agile and easy to customize with an array of accessories. The V7 Stone features the new and more powerful, 750cc, 90-degree V-Twin motor and new lightweight, six split-spoke alloy wheels. The simple color scheme combined with the six split-spoke wheels enhance the chrome accents and make the Stone the ideal foil for a wide variety of Moto Guzzi accessories. The 2013 V7 Stone is available in Matte Black and Pure White. MSRP is $8,390 and the bike will be available in mid-October at Moto Guzzi dealerships across the United States.
The 2013 V7 Racer is an ode to café racer motorcycles from the ‘50s and ‘60s with the performance of a modern machine. The V7 Racer has a new 750cc, 90-degree V-Twin motor with increased torque, horsepower and throttle response for an enjoyable ride. The V7 Racer features a myriad of unique style attributes—from a chrome fuel metal tank studded with red Moto Guzzi badges and finished with a handsome leather strap, to a suede leather seat with an aerodynamic seat cowl and ‘70s-style racer number plates. The 2013 V7 Racer is available in Chrome. MSRP is $9,990 and it will be available at Moto Guzzi dealerships across the United States in early October.
This is the closest to the original 1969 V7 Special because it faithfully cites the same riding philosophy—that of a touring bike with a sophisticated fit and finish and uniquely “Guzzi” engine character. The new engine, significantly stronger in driving torque and especially in maximum power, which is increased by 12 percent, is perfectly suited for medium range touring and contributes to low fuel consumption and greater tank capacity with 5.8 gallons for an average range of 310 miles. Just like its predecessor, the V7 Special is wrapped in a two-tone paint scheme and is equipped with aluminum spoked wheels reducing unsprung weight and improving handling. The V7 Special is available in White/Red Metallic and Yellow/Black Metallic. MSRP is $8,990 and it will be available in quarter 1 of 2013 at Moto Guzzi dealerships across the United States.
