As a in the 1970s, I had daydreams about like this: a handsome Guzzi café racer serious attitude and thunderous being caned on a twisty perhaps with a curvaceous on the passenger seat.

A solo blast on the recently V7 Racer doesn’t tick all boxes, but it’s still a lot of You’ve got to be of a certain age to recall Guzzi’s mid-’70s heyday of the Le 850, but even if you don’t you can appreciate its styling.

For the 2013 year, Moto Guzzi’s 750cc lineup gets an engine with 70 percent new The basic Heron-headed, pushrod-operated is the same, but the cylinder heads and have been reworked to up from 9.2:1 to 10.2:1. changes include a redesigned below the seat, a revamped fuel-injection system with a central injector and improved from redesigned fins.

But this sporty look is misleading: It is, in a softly tuned middleweight prefers a gentler pace, may be perfect for the intended demographic.

Handling is very stable, a traditional Guzzi solidity is fine through sweeping but slightly harder work in turns. This bike really do with a bigger, powerful engine, because its is fairly unimpressive.
