2021 Moto Guzzi V7 Revealed With Larger Engine & Better Equipment
The motorcycle comes in Stone and Special versions now, but the mechanical bits of both variants are quite similar.
Moto Guzzi has revealed the updated 2021 V7 that now features more power, by courtesy of a new engine, is faster, and better equipped.
Two variants of the motorcycle are available, namely Stone, for those who like a modern look on their bike, and Special, that looks classic and more elegant.
Sporting a new full-LED light system, with the DRL in the shape of the Moto Guzzi Eagle, and a new digital instrument cluster, V7 Stone is a minimalist motorcycle that also comes with new wheels and a wider 150-section rear tyre.
On the other hand, the V7 Special has the classic dual-dial analogue instrument cluster and wire-spoked wheel rims. However, both models get new side panels, a shortened rear mudguard, a revised exhaust system, Kayaba rear shocks, larger shaft drive and new colour options.
That is not all either. For the 2021 model year, Moto Guzzi wanted to do a bit more than change the aesthetics. So, they went to work on the drivetrain as well.
Now, there is a new V-twin motor displacing 850cc and putting out more power – 65 HP at 6800 RPM, as opposed to 52 HP at 6200 RPM from the previous 744cc engine – while torque is also up to 73 Nm at 5000 RPM.
More than 80 percent of the torque is available as early as 3000 RPM, says the bikemaker and there is traction control (can be disabled) too, so as to stop riders from headbutting a lamp post.
Similarly, the 2021 Moto Guzzi V7 also has a revised frame that has additional elements in the headstock area along with new foot pegs for the rider and a redesigned saddle.
