Moto Guzzi V7 Cafe

A bike that pays to the legendary V7 Sport of the 1970s, but a suite of modern niceities

no motorcycle historian by any stretch of the but I am certainly well aware of the Moto Guzzi V7 Sport, created a huge buzz in the 1970s.

The 757cc transverse V-twin certainly had some rights, which included claim to being the first produced bike in the world to a maximum speed of 200km/h. — and seminal — indeed.

According to Moto the specialist motorcycle commentators the V7 Sport the archetype of Italian bikes where the essence of conveys the effectiveness of the function for the bike was designed. In other it had class and performance to match the

We had to take that step in time, because the legend of the V7 has now been revived by the Piaggio Moto Guzzi in a modern called the V7 Café Classic.

Guzzi has now joined the likes of (GT1000) and Triumph (the and all its derivatives) in the retro classic and let there be more of it we say.

On the that the new machine is very in style to the original, it goes saying that the Café priced at $14,690, just elegance out of every orifice, the reverse-cone silencers to the gorgeous steel wheels, fastback-style short and sleek front analogue instruments (what clip-on handlebars and green The proportions are just right.

The Café Classic sounds ‘big’ bike with the soundtrack emanating from the upswept silencers, even at a wet weight of 198kg it really a fatty by any stretch of the imagination.

The Classic has a single-plate dry clutch in keeping with other of the ‘dry’ party, is a little but certainly not enough to leave hand quivering.

Meantime, the low height (805mm) and clip-on which don’t put too much on the wrists, are all about comfort.

And that applies if you want to up the a little after waving to the city. That’s what to me, but it didn’t take long to the Café Classic is — as I earlier — not one to come out which it certainly doesn’t set out to be skinny 18 (front) and 17-inch basic suspension, and an engine does start to lose breath at high revs. I must say the four-piston Brembo brake wouldn’t be out of place in a with more performance

With the ‘stretch’ out of the road, I back into a nice and you know what — it into one of the most enjoyable rides I have had in ages. A roast if you will, and an ideal to relax and take in the scenery.
