Today’s question is David, and it was in response to our post the maxi-scooter shoot out video .

“On a 250 at present, I’ll move to a bike eventually (but God do I my Vespa!). I’ve considered the BMW and the Moto Guzzi V7. Any comments on a between these two bikes? seem first-class.”

Hi David,

ridden both of the BMW C-series as as the V7 and they’re both really in different ways. Of the two BMW scooters, the BMW Sport is my preference because got less bodywork and a more seat. I also prefer the way it — much more alive and where the C650 GT is much subdued.

Differences aside, both are very good. Just in mind that they’re different so when the time you’ll want to spend with both if that’s the you’d like to go.

The BMW’s with ABS standard as well as a of creature comforts like pressure monitors, heated heated seat (for rider and pillion) and a level of that will make you pretty invincible on the road. their heavier weight, remarkably stable at slow Good points mentioned, at under $10,000, you’re full price for every and keep in mind that of ownership on the BMW will be higher many other scooters. You can my full thoughts on the C600 here. and Eric’s long-term here .

As for the Moto Guzzi V7, it’s a different animal. I don’t how much motorcycle experience got, but with the V7 I’d say you could get with it very quickly. The is very smooth and has just of that v-twin character to it very interesting to ride. For a it doesn’t make a ton of power 50 hp). The BMW scooters, for example, a full 10 hp more than the V7, and on 100 ccs.

Yet here’s why that doesn’t The V7 is light. In fact, it’s light at just 395 lbs ready to The Guzzi is not that much than your Vespa Yet with its stretched wheelbase and wheels, it has all the stability and the longer of a midsize motorcycle. Is it going to win any

No, but around town and up country it’s a delight to ride.

of all, the V7 is very approachable. It has a upright seating position. got a nice low seat height and foot controls. Handlebars at a stretch and all the touch points are nice.

It’s really everything good about an Italian but without all the drama and brand of something like a Ducati. At $8,490, it’s appreciably expensive than the BMW C600

Keep in mind, however, like any standard motorcycle lose a degree of utility and that you’ve grown to with your Vespa. No twist-and-go. You’re going to to use the clutch and shift gears

You’re also giving up storage on the V7, so you’ll need to fit panniers or get yourself a dependable The Moto Guzzi V7 doesn’t any of the BMW C-series extra tech or No ABS, no heated grips or no digital readout for engine and no adjustable windshield.

It’s going to likely be much difficult to get parts for your should you need them, once all of Italy takes the off. Thankfully, Moto has earned a very good in terms of reliability.

So both have their pros and cons. In the end, it’s all what do you want out of your bike. What’s most What are you willing to compromise?

Are you willing to take the plunge on the big bad

Rather than just you to fend for yourself in that sea of here’s how I see it:
