Moto V7 Passion


Created in 2008, the V7 won over enthusiasts with its inspired by the famous forerunners, V7 and Sport from the seventies, but with the technology and usability of a Moto Guzzi. Subsequently, in the V7 Café Classic contributed to the of the V7 Classic, followed the next by the exclusive V7 Racer, first as a show bike at EICMA and then going into production due to unanimous demand the markets, exceeding 1000 sold by a wide margin.

three models completed the which was able to rekindle memories for more expert memories of trips and friendships in the sixties and seventies, when the represented a symbol of freedom and These values, sustained by a that celebrated ninety of history, made the V7 a bike fully expressed the passion and of the rider.

The new Moto Guzzi V7 with an examination of its identity: Italian, two cylinder, affordable and a unique history. In order to the traits of this personality and it into the future, the only that could be taken was of totally innovating it within a of tradition delimited by its technical and its design style.

This is why we can say the V7 is a completely new bike, more faster, thriftier, more better refined and more than the previous version, and yet with a cardan shaft 90 transversal V two cylinder engine and frame. That is, the distinctive of a tradition which has its roots in an conceived in 1967: the Moto V7 700cc.


The original engine dates back to 1977, the of the Moto Guzzi V50’s début. Since then the has been continuously updated, displacements of 350 up to 750 cc, going from to electronic injection, but staying to the genial layout introduced in the design by engineer Lino

Globally appreciated for its legendary and operational regularity, after years, the small block a bit more brilliance at high And so, the search for greater performance the door to a new design, rich innovative solutions that this engine among the advanced in its category with than 70% new parts, equal to than 200 new or redesigned mechanical

This design freshness can be seen in the layout of the thermal which is a summary of the design for the entire bike: innovation respects tradition. And so it is that the fin, legacy of production the 1980s, passed the baton to a shape which is reminiscent of the generation of two cylinders from

The valves cover is also a to the origins of the V7; made in aluminium, it covers the profile of the fins, off the Moto Guzzi signature in Another element that is recognisable is the disappearance of the two intake and relative throttle bodies: in the new small block is the first throttle body V twin Guzzi engine.

The manifolds replaced by a single Y manifold of rubber, completely ribbed and (diameter of 36 and 39 mm respectively from the groups and the throttle body) links to a single Magneti MIU3G 38 mm diameter throttle This is a modern unit allows two oxygen sensors to be thereby obtaining a mixture to the in any operating conditions which is uniform with consequent in fuel economy and harmful besides contributing to the increase in which was the goal of the entire For this purpose a new head was working on the intake ducts, now in diameter and better linked to losses and increase turbulence, as as repositioning the spark plug more centrally, thanks to the use of a modern plug with threading and a prominent electrode.

The area and the compression ratio is increased, thanks to the use of new, performance pistons which the ratio by one point, going 9.2 to 10.2. In addition to the pouches at the top of the piston, the bottom of these are redesigned to make the structure sturdy without increasing the The segments are also new, more modern sizes, and shapes, and they contribute to efficiency and oil consumption.

The new cylinder larger and spread farther to lower the average operating contributes to the general efficiency of the plant, as well as the new filter redesigned to satisfy the -breathing- of the twin cylinder from and moved under the saddle to the -V- of the engine visible and to ensure maintenance. With this new the twin cylinder from is now significantly stronger in driving and especially in maximum power, by 12%, with a greater toward extension and an output that expresses it increased of horses even at 2,800 RPM and thanks to the improved efficiency, a reduction in fuel consumption and of more than 10%, a range of 23Km/l on mixed

The transmission has also been still five speeds, but a new pre-selector which has made more precise, smooth and final drive is confirmed, to the famed cardan, unique in its and a Moto Guzzi icon as as the guarantee of reliability, safety, cleanliness and completely maintenance


The design of the new V7 tells of the lineage of the model through a mix of and volumes which cite the ancestors, from the V7 750 Special in the accents and the side panels, to the V7 which influenced the tank, the new feature introduced in the new V7.

A change in now more imposing in form and the new tank brings with it a material perception of metal respect to polyethylene, the material was used to make the previous This is thanks to the most moulding technologies which construction of a metallic tank is the same size, but lighter and greater capacity compared to the polyethylene unit, reaching a value of 22 litres which, with the reduced consumption, a range of up to 500 km. This is further of the design philosophy that the entire V7 project where of the processes restored the pleasure to the of gripping a real, resounding tank in true Moto tradition.

The rest of the new V7 design that alchemy of tradition and introduced in 2008 with the V7 Classic, where, through the chrome trim, enthusiasts be able to appreciate the cigar of the silencers, the dials on the instrument clearly inspired by the Veglia-Borletti the 1970s, the flat and long with the proud Moto inscription emblazoned on the rear as well as the new valves covers.

The Guzzi V7, iconic and prestigiously is now available in three versions, two and one sport, respectively the V7 Stone, V7 and the V7 Racer. Just like in when the sport version a range made up of the dominating V7 and V7


The double frame, with bolted and lower elements, is a key element of the V7 and it has not undergone any changes compared the previous version. This is a of legendary solidity and sturdiness in part to the headstock angle of an angle which ensures and directional precision.

The fork, using 40 mm stanchions, new calibration to reduce friction and is with dust boots in the version, with 130 mm travel. shock absorbers with new to the advantage of comfort for the V7 Stone and the V7 with adjustable spring and offering 118 mm of travel, while the as usual, stands out with a of refined Bitubo WMT gas shock equipped with an external The brake system consists of a 320 mm front disc and a 260 mm rear

For the latter, the designer Giulio Cesare designed a two cylinder 90 V air cooled destined for a sport version of the 500, capable of touching 140

People at Lingotto liked the new but the annual quantity that Valletta requested exceeded the capacity of the Mandello del Lario so the agreement never came to

Engineer Carcano, however, did not heart and he increased the size of the two engine to 754cc to use it on the 3X3, a variable track three drive vehicle destined for the troops.

The V7 appeared at the right time, were coming domineeringly into fashion almost as a to the conformism of the car and the market is particularly to innovations. The first thing did was to increase the engine size to 757 and the to 45 HP to launch the V7 Special in 1969, more refined and elegant to the V7.

Then he created, initially for the market, the V7 Ambassador and the California, the destined to be one of the great Moto success stories. The next coincides with Lino masterpiece: the V7 Sport. The designer Forlì had clear ideas and he set the parameters of the sport bike Mandello: 200 km/h, 200 kg, 5 gears.

To the objective he made some to the engine, taking the displacement to cc and the power to more than 52 HP, the crankshaft and camshafts, in addition to the alternator in the front in order to the vertical bulk down.
