2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Racer

This year at the EICMA show, Moto Guzzi has presented the 2014 model year of its V7 line up, consisting of the 2014 V7 Stone, 2014 V7 Special and 2014 V7 Racer. The three models with their famous 1970s-inspired style get several upgrades focused in “three fundamental pillars: the 90° transverse V-twin, the timeless double cradle frame and the renowned cardan shaft final drive.”

The 750c engine on the 2014 V7 models now uses a new, wet flywheel instead of the previous dry alternator, and now comes with a compact, more streamlined new cover. The V7 models also get color and trim material upgrades, but chassis, suspension, and other components remain mechanically unchanged.

The 2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Stone gets black color treatments on its side panels, dampers, mirrors, fenders and wheels, while the exhaust and stoplight enclosure are shinning in chrome. Furthermore, the tank now can be had in “Rosso Corposo” Red, “Verde Agata” Green, or “Nero Ruvido” black. Read more
