With over 90 years as Europe’s oldest continuously operating motorcycle manufacturer, Piaggio Group claims the Moto Guzzi’s V7 Racer is the most unique among today’s modern retro motorcycles. The company highlights a commitment to craftsmanship, unrivaled old school style, and technological progress, that makes every V7 truly one of a kind.
The 2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer is a completely new bike – leading with 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 – cornerstones of the V7 tradition, a tradition that stays true to the characteristics of the Moto Guzzi tradition, that touring on a motorcycle at its most pure should be nothing but enjoyable.
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 new 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 V7 Racer is perfect for an adventurous rider with an eye for design and a wild streak. The 2013 V7 Racer is available in Chrome. MSRP is $10,190 and is available at Moto Guzzi dealerships across Canada now.
