The 2021 Moto Guzzi V7 lineup has been announced by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer Piaggio. The retro-styled motorbike comes in two trims: V7 Stone and V7 Special, and is scheduled to be released by March 2021. The V7 gets a significant update for 2021 as it has a bigger and more powerful engine, better chassis components, and ergonomic elements for a more user-friendly and fun motorbike.
Design and Features
The new 2021 Moto Guzzi V7 is launched with new lightning clusters, mudguards, side panels, and exhaust tips. The V7 stone has a single LCD gauge, LED lighting, cast-aluminum wheels, and a headlight that features a DRL shape similar to the Guzzi Eagle.
The V7 stone trim comes in three different color options: Nero Ruvido, Azzurro Ghiaccio, and Arancione Rame, and the V7 trim are other in terms of its brown seat, navy-blue paint with contrast silver pinstripes, and wire-spoke wheels. Styling changes have been brought to the models in 2021, maintaining the classic and authentic look.
Power and Performance
The new V7 has a new 850cc twin-engine, derived from the engine used in the V85TT. The engine is a Euro 5-compliant 90-degree, air-cooled, two-valve, V-twin.
The new V7 generates more power and pull than the previous engine of up to 52 hp at 6200 rpm of maximum power and 54 pound-feet of maximum torque at 5000 rpm, with 80 percent of the bike’s pull available at 3000 rpm. The other updates come in a revised tubular steel frame to accommodate the new engine and new dual shocks.
Brakes and Tires
The Moto Guzzi 7 has reinforced the frame around the headstock and added more extended travel twin Kayaba shocks. A new saddle and upgraded footpeg have been added to increase comfort. The rear tire of wide 150/70 replaces the ongoing model’s 130/80-section rubber. A single disc brake up front, a final shaft drive, and a lot of Mandello del Lario personality in between are the motorcycle’s main features.
Also, new side panels and shorter rear mudguard has been updated than the previous versions. The bike’s suspension is taken care of by telescopic forks on the front side and a pair of twin-sided springs on the rear end. The Special has old-school wire-spoke wheels, and the Stone uses cast-aluminum wheels.
