Guzzi reports that the engine is a more powerful, faster and smoother 90° V-twin that’s supported by the double cradle Tonti frame and connects to the cardan shaft drive. All three models feature this new setup and come with a wide range of available accessories.

Moto Guzzi V7 StoneThe V7 Stone is a new version with a competitive price point that’s designed to appeal to younger riders. Guzzi says it’s “trendy, agile and easy to customize with an array of accessories.”

It features the new motor and lightweight six-split-spoke alloy wheels. It comes in matte black or pure white, both with chrome accents. Available at dealerships in mid-October at an MSRP of $8,390.



Moto Guzzi V7 RacerThe V7 Racer is back, but with the new motor. It features such styling features as a chrome fuel tank with red Moto Guzzi badges, and a suede leather seat with seat cowl and ‘70s-style number plates.

The V7 Racer will be in showrooms in early October at an MSRP of $9,990.



Moto Guzzi V7 SpecialAccording to the OEM, the V7 Special is the closest thing to the original 1969 V7 Special, and not just because it shares the same name. It’s also because, the company says, the model carries the same style of a touring bike with a sophisticated fit and finish and unique character of Guzzi’s engine.

The V7 Special has a two-tone paint job and aluminum spoked wheels. Luggage and a windshield help complete the bike’s standing as a touring machine. The Special has an MSRP of $8,990 and be available in Q1 of 2013.
