Piaggio will present an update Moto Guzzi V7 lineup at next week’s Intermot show in Cologne.
Dubbed the V7 II, the new model family will again be available in three versions, the V7 II Stone, V7 II Racer and V7 II Special. Guzzi’s signature longitudinally-mounted engine returns, but mounted 10mm lower and tilted 4° forward, addressing rider complaints about a lack of knee space. The transmission has been updated with a sixth gear and a more refined clutch for easier shifts.
Other updates include a new dual-channel ABS, traction control, and a seat height reduced to 30.7 inches from 31.7 inches.
The V7 II family will arrive in European showrooms in November. North American consumers will have to wait a bit longer.
Piaggio has only released images of the Moto Guzzi V7 II Stone, but we hope to see the Racer and Special editions, as well as full specifications, when they’re presented Sept. 30 at Intermot.
