It’s been a while since we heard anything from Moto Guzzi and to break the silence, they’ve launched the new 2021 Moto Guzzi V7 range which consists of two variants – V7 Stone and V7 Special. This range is now more powerful and refined than ever, and that’s always a good start.
For 2021, the V7 range now comes fitted with a bigger 850cc transversal 90° V‐twin engine based on the V85 TT model. Compared to the previous-gen 744cc V7 III, the 2021 Moto Guzzi V7 models produce 65hp and 60Nm, which is roughly 25% more. 80% of its overall torque is readily available from as low as 3,000rpm, which sounds great.
While the V7 doesn’t make the same power as the V85 TT (around 80hp and 80Nm torque), its engine does offer better overall performance paired with greater efficiency and reliability. The V7 Stone model comes with a strong yet minimalistic style, while the Special presents a more classic and elegant package.
Other updates include bigger exhaust pipes, wider rear wheel (150/70-17), Kayaba shock absorber, larger final drive, new side panels, shorter rear mudguard, two-tier comfort saddle, and many more. The new V7 Stone also comes with a new full-LED lighting system which includes an aluminium rims, sleek-looking ‘Eagle’ DRL and new instrument cluster.
The V7 Special on the other hand still carries that dual dial analogue instrument cluster as well as that classic spoked rims. Customers can choose between two colour options for the Special – Blu Formale and Grigio Casual. Three options are available for the Stone – Nero Ruvido, Azzurro Ghiaccio and Arancione Rame.
