The new model, called V7 Racer created by reviewing the competitive career of the V7 Sport, will be produced in a numbered series highlighting the stylistic Moto Guzzi and combining craftsmanship and technology.
The motorcycle features a leather strapped chrome tank created using what Moto Guzzi calls an innovative metal particle deposition technology. The red frame was inspired by the earlier V7 Classic models, and is paired with the matching red hubs and swingarm.
Technically, the V7 Racer is similar to the V7 Cafe. At the heart of the machine is a 744cc 90-degree V-Twin engine which delivers a slightly disappointing 49hp at 6800 rpm and 40 ft-lb of torque at 3600. Suspension is provided by a 40mm Marzocchi front fork and fully adjustable Bitubo rear shocks. The braking system comes from Brembo, which uses a 320mm disc at the front and a 260mm disc at the back.
For the most demanding enthusiasts there is also a system of Arrow exhaust (not approved for road use) that respects the aesthetic balance of the bike, restoring a sound exciting addition to an appreciable increase in performance.
The price will be approximately $20,000! [Ultimate Motorcycling]
