- 2021 Moto Guzzi V7 gets major changes
- New 850cc engine, updated features
- No word about its India launch yet
Piaggio-owned Moto Guzzi has unveiled the new V7. The retro-styled motorcycle gets major changes for 2021.
The biggest of those updates is to the Moto Guzzi V7’s famous 90-degree V-twin engine. The previous 744cc motor which did duty for almost a decade has been retired by a new, 850cc mill. Not only has displacement jumped up but the power figures have also increased phenomenally from 52bhp and 59.9Nm to 65bhp of power and 72.9Nm of torque.
While the design silhouette stays true to the previous V7, the 2021 model gets subtle tweaks like a redesigned headlight and tail light, side panels, mudguard and exhaust tips. Moto Guzzi has also equipped the new V7 with full-LED lighting and a new instrument cluster as well. What’s more, the bike also gets a larger rear wheel and rear shocks sourced from Kayaba.
And unlike its previous updates which used Roman numerals to indicate the version, the 2021 model is only called the V7. While the 2020 line-up consisted of four-models, Moto Guzzi is offering the new V7 only in two variants- V7 Stone and V7 Special. The Moto Guzzi V7 Special gets a navy-blue paint with contrasting silver pinstripes, brown seat, and wire-spoke wheels. Meanwhile, the V7 Stone is available in a choice of three paint colours: Nero Ruvido, Azzurro Ghiaccio, and Arancione Rame.
Now, the new Moto Guzzi V7 will be available in international markets early next year although there is no word about its India launch yet.
