2009 Moto Guzzi V7

2009 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic


The 2009 Moto Guzzi V7 definitely isn’t your father’s motorcycle. Moto Guzzi introduced the V7 as a sport motorcycle in 1967. Its 703cc engine made it the largest capacity engine in an Italian motorcycle. It was the first mass-produced motorcycle to achieve a top speed of 124 mph and thus the V7 became immensely popular. Moto Guzzi quit making the V7 for a few decades, and then reincarnated it in 2008 with the V7 Classic, that was introduced to the United States with the 2009 model. The V7 was available in two models in 2009: the Classic and the Café Classic. Both feature the 1970s retro styling and classic frame Despite the shared name, today’s V7 isn’t a sport bike; rather, it is made to cruise, whether around the city, down the freeway, or spirited riding on curvy roads. Moto Guzzi added ""classic"" to the V7’s name to distinguish it from its ancestors. Today’s 744cc engine makes it a good entry-level motorcycle, as well as a re-entry bike. A low center of gravity also makes it a good choice for beginners.

The 2009 V7 retains the 90° V-twin engine configuration and the same front and rear suspension systems as the old Moto Guzzis, but it is a more relaxed and comfortable ride. The 2009 V7 isn’t a race bike, but goes fast enough to handle freeway driving. Though the V7 is capable of doing 80 mph, reviewers say the most pleasure in riding this motorcycle comes when speeds are less than 70 mph as the ride is more comfortable and relaxing. Depending on the model, color choices are limited to black or white.
